Mr. Bowman, thank you for the critic on Memoirs of a Geisha. I have just finished the book and loved it. Its travel to the past is interesting and something I enjoyed in the book. The honesty of the story tells us much of what a geisha was with none of the tiring ideas of what they were thought of at the time by people who did not understand their lives.
The people in the book become important to you and as with every book that grabs your heart, you do not want the story to end, although the ending, well, I won’t tell.
From your description the movie is close enough to the book for me to go see it. I hate it when Hollywood takes a book such as this and adds too much or takes away too much and we are left unhappy at paying to see a book we liked changed to their idea of what is important to the story.p>Thanks, they are still with me and I am sure I will enjoy the movie. br> — Carole Graham /p>

The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
