Résumé de l'éditeur

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.


Commentaire de l'équipe Audible

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.)

Très belle histoire et si bien lue que l'on se laisse entraîner sans résister. J'ai trouvé la narratrice incroyable ! On ne voit pas le temps passer.

Lovely story - some technical defaults

The story is lovely and very well read. I spent hours to listen to it and was never bored.

My only concern is that the separations on the ipod do not match the chapters. It is difficult sometimes to find where we stopped.
