Memoirs of a Geisha



When I first started reading Memoirs of a Geisha I wasn’t too excited.    I saw that the book had about seven hundred pages…even more exciting.  To me, personally, this book did not appeal to my interests.  When I first started reading, I thought it was boring; however continuing with the book it became a little more attractive.  Chiyo started getting into trouble and her geisha career was in the running, it was more suspenseful, enthralling.  In the end, I’m happy to say that I have read the book, it teaches many valuable lessons that someone should learn.  I would recommend this book to a fellow high school student or an eighth grader.  I don’t think seventh graders or below should read Memoirs of a Geisha because I think that from the sexual references they won’t take the book seriously and learn what the author is trying to provoke.  I also think this book is very relatable because, even though I’m not trying to become a geisha, there are many hardships that every teenager continuing through high school has to encounter.  I also have to mention that the movie was very good.  If I wouldn’t have seen the movie, I don’t think I would have ended up reading the whole book.  All together, the book wasn’t half bad.
