Absolutely amazing story of a Geisha. So much I didn’t know and so much I learnt from them. Their patience, their understanding, they willingness to please at whatever cost.
Brilliant book - excellently narrated
Would you consider the audio edition of Memoirs of a Geisha to be better than the print version?
N/A - I haven't read the print version
What other book might you compare Memoirs of a Geisha to, and why?
I can't say that I have any comparison for this book. It's not a genre that I normally get into but I've been wanting to 'read' this one for a long time and audible gives me the opportunity to do so.
What three words best describe Bernadette Dunne’s voice?
Gentle. Articulate. Non-expressive. I found the characters other Chiyo/Sayuri unconvincing.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Chiyo and her sister discovered they were not going to the same place in the city but were being separated.
Any additional comments?
The book is so beautifully written in the first-person and comprehensible, you have to remind yourself that it is actually fiction and not an auto-biography.
As my first ever audiobook I was a little sceptical, but I was quickly drawn in and held engaged throughout the entire book. The narrating was wonderful.
i understand why this was so popular when it first was published. really glad I have been able to hear this story
I enjoyed this audio book from the very first minute to the very last. one of those which make you feel you've lost a good friend when you finish them !
Being such a wonderful story it's such a shame that the narrator sounded so wooden. She doesn't portray the drama or emotion well at all. I was pretty disappointed.
