The art of racing in the rain. Easily the best book I have ever raid or will ever likely read again. Seriously.

Warning - Feels inbound for anyone who wants to read this. It will seriously make you cry like a bitch

Who gives a **** ? They're both hobbies, completing one is not more impressive than completing another.

Actually, it's kind of a lot more impressive to complete dark souls than to complete a book.

Two weeks ago, Memoirs of a Geisha.
Loved every single thing about it.

From the scale of 0 to 10 how awesome was it?

I'd rate it "Japan out of 10" more than anything. If you're not a fan of japanese culture, or anything japanese related, then you won't enjoy it very much.
Storywise, it follows the life of a geisha (who actually narrates her life to the writer) for which you can read the synopsis somewhere else because I'm writing from a phone and it would be a pain to get in
You can feel the westernisation at moments because the author is american, although it stays true to the original theme.
Finally, I'd give it an 8/10.

Right, also:

My Life as a Geisha, which is the actual story by Mineko Iwasaki, not edited by Arthur Golden.
