Memoirs of a Geisha

Friday, February 6, 2009

this was a book ive wanted to read way back
and now finished just a couple of days ago..

it's really a good book it shows the rich culture
of Japan. Ive always like Japanese art no..not just the anime..
but others the way their kimonos where designed the vibrant color they use..

the intricate and simplistic design they use, attract me a lot but
of course every cultures have it's own fault and it was also discussed
over the booked..

in a monogamy system rule over my country, it's really quit unethical to
go with different beautiful girls behind your wife's back.

and also theres a controversy going around the book saying it was all fictional
and some things mentioned about geishas were just made up!

so the book Geisha of Gion was made by Mineko Iwasaki to contradict all the
mistakes made by Arthur Golden's Memoirs of a Geisha

and that's the next book I'm gonna look for and read!!

heres some additional info about that:
