Q Memoirs of a Geisha – Help?
i am looking for online notes on the book Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.
I have tried sparknotes & cliffsnotes, but they don’t have it. are there any other websites that would have it?
and i’m not trying to copy anything, i just want a rough outline on characters & themes of the book..
A Why don’t you try the movie which is made on the basis of the same book with the same name??!!!You can easily get a rough outline on characters and themes of the book in just 2 or 2 and a half hours easily!!
i’ll have to try and find time… haha time, what is that?
Unfortunately, the themes offered at the likes of BookRags.com and eNotes.com all require a purchased subscription to view more the the initial teaser.
Failing those, what are left are resources such as these:
- Wikipedia.org: Memoirs of a Geisha
- Wikipedia.org: Memoirs of a Geisha (film)
- BookReviews.Nabou.com: Arthur Golden – “Memoirs of a Geisha”
- ReadingGroupGuides.com: Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
- BookBrowse.com: Memoirs of a Geisha: Summary and book reviews of Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
And maybe even these can help:
