Book Suggestion: “Memoirs of a Geisha” by Arthur Golden

Something I’m sure you’ll learn about me is that I’m a very prolific reader. I love reading; I usually have a book in my hand when I’m not out and about.

I love all sorts of books. Fantasy. Science-Fiction. Historical Fiction. Mysteries. And yes, even the occasional biography. And so much more. If it’s there…I’ll give it a try. What better way to expand your horizons than to try reading something new? And if it doesn’t catch your interest? Well. That is perfectly okay. Just leave it and move onto something else that does hold your attention. At least, that’s how I feel about it.

I recently completed Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. It’s beautifully written. And its easy to get lost in the story while you’re reading. So much so that I nearly forgot that it was a work of fiction. Memoirs of a Geisha gives such a fantastic image of the way that things once were in Japan and in the secretive lives of the Geisha.

I know that Memoirs of a Geisha has been out for quite some time. It was originally released in early 1999. But I definitely suggest Memoirs of a Geisha to you. Especially if you enjoy reading fiction that’s based in the past and that doesn’t seem fictional at all. Or even if you are interested in the life of a Geisha. Just give it a try. Worse case-scenario: You decide this isn’t the book for you and you move onto something that holds your attention a bit better. But if you’re anything like me, you’re going to love Arthur Golden’s Memoirs of a Geisha!
