In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

A well written and beautifully read book. I usually listen to audio books in the car and just wanted to drive on and on to listen to Sayuri's story.

After nearly two decades in Britain, Bill Bryson, the acclaimed author of such best sellers as The Mother Tongue and Made in America, decided it was time to move back to the United States for a while. This was partly to let his wife and kids experience life in Bryson's homeland, and partly because he had read that 3.7 million Americans believed that they had been abducted by aliens at one time or another. It was thus clear to him that his people needed him.

Notes from a small island

5 out of 5 stars

Rezensiert am: 25.10.2008

Having lived in the UK around the same time as the author, I related so much to his accounts of life in Britian. I went down memory lane with him and loved every minute of it. Never has a long commute to work been so enjoyable, never have I shed tears of laughter whilst driving to work - it was wonderful.
I recommend this book to any anglophile person and all those who have lived in England - it will bring back memories, smiles, some regrets and the resolution to return and visit this great country.
