Subject: What a lovely review you have done, really in depth. I could tell you were moved by the story. I read the book a few years ago as a former boss "gave" it to me to see if I would like it and I knew I had to read it. I thought it slurped big time. Was one of the most depressing books I have ever read, in fact it is on my list of all time horrible reads. Although I must admit that the writing was excellent.

[> This was one of the most beautifully-written books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. It immersed me in a completely different culture and way of thinking. As you pointed out, there's a lot that's messed up in this world of geisha - and Sayuri's fairy tale ending feels exactly like a fairy tale - but that didn't stop me from enjoying this book. I read it first five years ago and just re-read it a couple of weeks ago to see if it held up to my memory. It's not "Outlander," but it still has a place on my keeper shelf. -- Lynn H., 10:56:42 02/04/06 Sat
