Beschreibung

Nitta Sayuri tells us in a voice at once haunting and startlingly immediate of her life as a geisha. Her story begins in a poor fishing village in 1929, when, as a nine-year-old girl with unusual blue-gray eyes, she is taken from her home and sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. We witness her transformation as we enter a world where appearances are paramount; where a girl's virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion.It is a unique and triumphant work of fiction - at once romantic, erotic, suspenseful - and completely unforgettable.

After hearing recent hype about this title being Steven Spielberg's next motion picture, I was eager to listen. And listen I did - intently. It was beautiful and touching, smart and enlightening. Now I can't wait for the movie! (Filomena L.)

Absolutely great to listen to!!!

This is a wonderful piece of art to listen to. On the one hand the story is sometimes sad and cruel, on the other hand it has a certain wittiness. B. Dunn has a fitting/suiting voice- in total: highly recommendable!

A pleasure to listen

Listening to Ms Dunn is a pleasure. I read this book in German too but the audiobook in English is more fascinating because of the reader. It is easy to understand even for English learners on intermediate level. Don't hesitate to brush up your English with this book!
