it was amazing

Let's face it, this is a great read with memorable characters and a storyline that keeps moving forward. You come to care about Chiyo and her Chairman and love to hate the other Geishas who weren't nice to Chiyo. I was deeply drawn to the whole Japanese Geisha culture, a subject of which I had very little knowledge. And even though the author is from the west I feel the story contained adequate detail to give me a basic background of what life was like for Geishas.
