Memoris of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
by sugundia nicole smith
(rome, ny U.S)
she is one of the most natrually beautiful women i've had the pleasure to see on the big screen
Suyri is an amazingly strong and powerful character who doesn't accurately know her own strength, which makes her vastly lovable to anyone with half a heart.
The novel allows outsiders a glimpse into the life of geishas as they were and provides details into their strictly hidden away world.
The child version of suyri was played by a phenomenal actress who in real life is actually of Chinese descent and had to learn to speak English phonetically for the film version. I think her commitment to the project is admirable and deserves special attentions.
I loved the novel and film so much that even after I set the book down I continued to research the country of japan: their history, the geisha and their customs.
