Speaking to us with the wisdom of age and in a voice at once haunting and immediate, Nitta Sayuri tells the story of her life as a geisha. Sayuri's story begins in a poor fishing village in 1929, when, as a nine-year-old with unusual blue-gray eyes, she is taken from her home and sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. It concludes with World War II when the geisha houses are forced to close and Sayuri reinvents herself and finds a rare kind of freedom on her own terms.

This book is absolutely captivating! I read the entire thing in just a week. But I also had class. I did not want to put this book down. It's a must read.
What's with that horrible phones accent?!
It doesn't even sound like fake Japanese, it sounds like pretend Chinese!
I know right IsabellaX? I was so into the book that i read 250 pages of it in a few hours!
