Have you read it? I'm on chapter 3, but this isn't for pleasure, it's for a novel study worth 20 percent of my final mark, so far i'm liking it though so that's good hehe. for my first assignment i have to compile 20 quotes from the book (so if anybody would like to help me out here that would be so great )

I really wish I could simply enjoy this book without writing journal entries ever so often, I know already i'm going to like this book in the end, gotta finish reading it by december 6th!

The deeper I got into this book the more I couldn't put it down. I hope it works the same for you. They're making a movie of it called " Geisha".
Good luck with your novel study report.

I'm admist the fan category as well, nice you're enjoying it.
One thing that you might like to try and that works well for me, is to take notes as you're reading. Don't make it to clinical, but if you see something that sticks out in your mind, or if you find a quote that might be applicable- write it down. Good luck!

Yep! Same thing happened to me. I really enjoyed that book. I ended up reading it in 3 days cuz I couldn't put it down. Even with taking notes you'll read it very fast once the story starts unravelling. The first couple chapters are a little slow, but about a quarter way it starts getting really good. I hope you enjoy.
