memoirs of a GEISHA

finally after much delay, I've managed to read the book, which I longed even before the movie was released. the screen version was quite ok, maybe the difficulty of the language faced by the actors, a bit lowering the bar of the movie, it is still an enjoyable watch. but having read it, i felt like reading through a softcore pornographic material... or maybe this is what a romantic novel looks like, I don't know. leaving a side the culture, this was really not my cup of tea... or sake... maybe... ha ha ha

no wonder many has come out to rebut the idea of a geisha potrayed by golden. am currently looking for geisha of gion, a novel written by one of golden's resource in putting together the memoirs as she herself claimed golden having twisted her words in publishing the book!
