    Memoirs of a Geisha ePUB Ô Memoirs of Kindle - memoirs kindle, geisha mobile, Memoirs of epub, Memoirs of a Geisha eBook Memoirs of a Geisha is an American novel and as such the attempt at West does East especially on the complex and delicate subject of the geisha is compelling interesting but also heavy handed and ultimately ineffective even so in the case of the film It is a wonderful introduction to geisha Japanese culture and the East for the uninitiated Western reader and I can see why the book is popular but I found it disappointing For the reader already familiar with the culture western influences are all too clear and the book comes off as a bit clunky and imperfect I also had some problems with the general perception of the characters by readers versus the way the characters were actually portrayed in the book Memoirs is far from the good willed fairy tale that people assume it is By all means read it but leave it open for critiue and remember that a authentic representation of eastern culture especially in the details will come from the east itselfA lot of my critiu

    Memoirs of a Geisha ePUB Ô Memoirs of Kindle - memoirs kindle, geisha mobile, Memoirs of epub, Memoirs of a Geisha eBookSo Memoirs of a Geisha I'd been wanting to read that one for a very long time I had heard so many good things about it It's supposed to be awesome and deep and beautiful right Wrong It's not The writing was what bothered me the most It's pretentious and superficial and sloooooww and it goes on and on and on and on and on and still very little happens In some sort of weird combination the writing is both superficial and cliché It feels like Golden thought it would be a good idea to emphasize all the Japan and nature clichés to the point of ridiculousness I still can't believe how many times he compares something to the nature Ironically it doesn't feel natural
