Enjoyed this book. Love the fact it goes from the start to end of her Geisha days.

I never knew so much that involved being a Geisha girl. An astonishing book. GREAT!

This book is amazing! Although the beginning of the story describing Chiyo's childhood with her sister Satsu is a tad too slow, the pace picks up considerably when she moves into the Nitta okiya. The detail is incredible - no emotions, thoughts or feelings are held back. The imagery and metaphors used by Golden are subtle, but make perfect sense when read. I could not put this book down!

Great to learn about the dying geisha culture, but writing a little simplistic.

A great book for book clubs and a fascinating look into a secret world in Japan

Simply one of the best books I have ever read - the film doesn't come close.
