I started reading Memoirs of a Geisha sometime last month but only continued reading today. I got this wait-a-minute moment and said that "Hey, that's not what was shown in the movie!" (Just so you know, I love the movie. I watch it every now and then. I don't get tired of it because of my love for Japan and its story.)
After that moment, I had an impulse to blog about it here in BookLikes. I thought that it would be nice to share what elements were different from the movie. Of course, there are books-turned-movies that had their plot lines rearranged and/or shortened into the two to three hour time frame for a movie. I would write about random differences like, how in the book, it started with the author talking to Sayuri in America while in the movie, it started with Satsu and Chiyo being sent away from Yoroido.
Of course, I would filter out things that would spoil either the movie or the novel. I would only share random differences and my opinions (nope, not facts) about the difference. Oh boy, this ought to be fun!
So I'm starting with Memoirs of a Geisha. If you wish to track down the progress, you may check the "Book vs Movie" page on my blog. It will redirect you to this link. :D
