I read this book in 2011. Found it in my school library and snatched it right away (well after signing the log book :D). Well, the geisha thing intrigued me, a lot so after missing the chance to watch the movie, I decided to just read the book. I liked how the book was written but I guess there were certain parts that I found as not-so-detailed and it left me wondering why certain things happened. But in the end, I didn'tt get the message but I still enjoyed it.
