Marvelous novel. It turned as it had been advised, a wonderful work for Jan Austin to start with. From the first page and the first dialogue, I liked the way Jane composes the sentences and the sense of humor by Mr.Bennt. However, I was not totally into the book at first for which the events weren’t so much interesting. Later, as things got complex and the picture started to be clearer, I plunged into the book. Mr.Darcy fights his-self for his pride, while Mrs.Elizabeth fights her-self against her prejudice toward Mr.Darcy. They hadn’t had a good impression of each other the first time they had met. However, later, each one’s view has changed. The end of the novel is pleasant and cheerful!.
Clearly, I’m not in position to critique or give a review that will add some additional information to what has been already added. However, such an astonishing work deserves all the appreciation.
I still remember the past time when my brother was reading it and I wasn’t paying much attention to it. Now, I’m just saying ” God, what have I been missing all these period ?!!!!.” It’s wonderful, astonishing, outstanding, and fantastic work by Arthur Golden. Golden has introduced us to many information that weren’t known to many people about Geisha culture in Japan. It’s like a culture within another culture. What Golden had done is that he had collected information about Geisha and then upon these information he created this historical fiction novel. Geisha is a term that refers to an artist and not like what may others think that it refers to a prostitute!. Geisha are expected to master different skills such as dancing, playing on some musical instruments, entertaining men in tea-houses .. etc. The novel is about a normal poor girl, called Sayuri ( Chyio ), who was taken from her hometown,with her sister, to Kayoto to be adopted by family in Gion. She later goes to school to get education so she becomes a geisha. However, her life grows even harder due to the problems she gets into. Inspite of all those ups and downs, Sayuri manages to be a successful geisha who could change her destiny or what she believes it’s her destiny to what she hopes and wishes to get.
Moreover, the novel shows not only geisha world but the suffering and agony that Japan had been through during the war against America. This war, however, lays a radical effect on the whole nation including geishas. And that add more excitement to the events.
It’s really a novel that worth reading. Thanks Arthur Golden for your masterpiece.
Who have read The Davnici Code or Angels and Demons or The Digital Fortress … ?. They all have a common denominator. They had been written by the wonderful writer Don Brown. For those who have read the previous novels, I think you agree with me that they’re so wonderful works. And I’m fan of how wonderfully Don writes!. Recently, a new novel for him had been published. The Lost Symbol is the new masterpiece of Don Brown….
I’ve read it page by page. Spent the majority of my time digging in it (xD), until I finished it. What can I say about it?! except ” WOW”. Another lovely, and astonishing novel. He has this ability that makes you become as a part of it. It’s like reading and watching a movie of it at the same time except there isn’t an actual screen!!. In this regard, I want to say, though he has the same writing style in his last three novels, he is still so wonderful. Every-time he brings something new and interesting. The curiosity of analyzing the old symbols and secrets has pulled his creativity far far away…
Read it if you you’re looking for enjoyment !
My best Regards
