Reviews - What do customers think about Die Geisha / Memoirs of a Geisha?
FRENCH May 6, 2006
Um, people, this book is not in German. It is in French. Don't buy this expecting either the English version or the German version.
I just realized that this site considers Die Geisha (German) and Geisha (French) to be the same book, so the reviews show up below both books. Beware, make sure you get the correct language.
The Best Book Ever Sep 27, 2005
I read this book the first time 5 years ag. Since then, I get the book out every year and read it again. It gives me the same fulfilled feeling I got the first time through. This is one of the best books out there that leads you through an amazing journey of life's triumphs and tragedies and the decisions you must make. It teaches you the importance of respect, tradition, and why it is so important to maintain our cultures lest we loose of forget them. Don't pass on this one!
Moving Story Jun 2, 2005
I recently read this book. It is an incredible read that sweeps you away into its depths. I too, like one of the other review writers thought it was a biography until the very end. And he/ she was right, it does seem to add to the excellence of this book. By the way, to all who may be interested... they are making a movie out of this book. HOPEFULLY it lives up to the book. If you haven't read it... do so!!!
"Die Geisha" is the same book as "Memoirs of a Geisha". Sep 2, 2004
"Memoirs of a Geisha" was a great read, but "Die Geisha" is not a sequel. It is the same book, but it is written German for our German readers over seas.
By the way, if you haven't read the English version called "Memoirs of a Geisha", you should do so because it was a great book & I'll give it 5 stars. Too bad there is not a sequel. This book left me a yearning to read more ;) ......."easy reader"
IT'S IN GERMAN!! Feb 26, 2002
When I read the earlier reviews I thought this was a sequel to the Memoirs of a Geisha, which is a great book. I don't see what I missed, what should have told me, so let me tell you directly: This is NOT a sequel, this is NOT a new book by Golden, it is Memoirs, but in GERMAN!!
Do not buy this book unless you read German; buy the Memoirs you will find elsewhere in this site. But if you do read German and are looking for a great novel, have at it.
