Description
From DMP:

"It's the beginning of the Meiji Era, and the world is turning upside-down. Misao doesn't think his life of tradition will ever change. Born into the pleasure quarters and raised as a courtesan, he knows that emotions are fickle things, changing with every hour. But when a rich man's son visits Misao's teahouse, Misao opens his heart for the first time. He pursues this reckless love on the cusp between two ages, yearning only for happiness and expecting nothing but pain. Can the world ever change for this prisoner of love?"

Well written but a little lacking

I thought the light novel wa well written. Sensei was able to create and hold on to the atmosphere from the beginning till the end. It was a good story but it lacked in some parts. I would have liked to read some more about how Ukigumo and Masaomi felt about things throughout the story and how did Misao find out the new manager was actually his mother. The fact that the book was from Misao's POV made it easy to follow, but then again, left these questons not answered. But all in all, I enjoyed the book. It was nice and fast to read. Really nice light novel smile

Memoirs of a Geisha   
Rating: 8.0 / 10.0

Reading this felt like I was reading a super abbreviated version of Memoirs of a Geisha. The words used evoked feelings of poignancy and loneliness. It makes you want to give the uke all the love in the world that he never experienced when growing up and show him the world that he had never seen. The "beach" scene was very dramatic and you can really feel how unfair life is sometimes when one has never been given the chance to choose. I wish it were a longer novel with more development but I have my imagination and will surely make more stories of these two lovebirds far from the crazy world of the red district just like in Memoirs of a Geisha.
