14294.jpg I’m so excited right now, I saw the trailer for the movie Memoirs of a Geisha and was highly impressed, and today while browsing away at Liberty Books, I found the book! :D Its always fun to read a book and then see the movie adaptation, one can then don their movie critic cap and compare the book to the movie and see what was chopped off or made ‘filmi’. Memoirs of a Geisha is releasing on Dec 9 2005, hopefully the DVD shall be here in the same week – God bless piracy at times like these. Khair, you can buy the book online from Liberty Books, or just head over to the nearest Liberty Books outlet.

    The book is available at Limewire , 1mb text file around 5 min download ,like Huma said ‘God Bless Piracy’ always saves a trip to the book store

    oh nooo. reading a book online is like trying to taste chocolate on a tv screen. you have to HOLD it and snuggle up with snacks and feel the pages turn. anything else should be made illegal. :)

    Read the book about four years ago, really enjoyed it. Will be looking forward to the movie.

    Courtney – it depends if the house is to be used to train geisha’s or not (sorry – just wondering what the relevance of that post was in this thread!)

    Anyway, generally speaking i find that film adaptations of books are always altered to suit the director’s style. The book is almost always more ‘interesting’ and the film usually dumbed down.
