Book vs. Movie
Ok. So I read this one years ago, but it still stayed with me and I loved it. When I heard the movie was coming out, I was so excited about it. The movie itself has already been out for six years now, but both are still memorable. Although the movie does end differently from the book, it was nice to see. The costumes of the geishas were depicted beautifully on screen and it was fun to watch the characters come to life. I think the novel was true to a more “real-life” type of ending, while the Hollywood version made it like a fairytale. Even though I am a fan of stories that end positively, I was a little disappointed that the ending of the movie didn’t stay true to the book. I have to admit, however, that I was happy for Chiyo in the movie version! I am a sucker for couples who are “meant to be”.
