Publisher's Summary

Every girl has her price....

To Steph, working as a bar hostess in Japan sounds too good to be true. Friends say she can earn a fortune simply by flirting with drunken businessmen, and there's no sex involved - honest. Old friends, Julia and Annabel, are earning piles of cash in Tokyo and say hostessing is perfectly safe. But once in Japan, Steph realises Julia is a shadow of her former self and Annabel has disappeared. No one cares that Annabel's gone - least of all a troubled and secretive Julia.

As Steph searches for her missing friend, she is lured into gritty, glamorous Roppongi - an exotic world of sex, modern-day geishas, and easy money. There she meets Mama San, a charismatic and powerful hostess club owner, who has worked in the shadowy Japanese sex industry all her life and knows everything about pleasing men. But the longer Steph stays in Tokyo's sex district, the less finding Annabel seems to matter. Steph soon realises she must discover what's happened to Annabel, or risk selling a part of herself she'll never get back.

    Story
    "Really dissapointing story"
    What would have made Glass Geishas better?

    A faster pace and less predictability. I really didn't begin to like any of the characters so I didn't care what happened to them unfortunately. There were some elements of the story that if they had gone further could have made this excitable but ultimately you need characters that appeal.


    What could Susanna Quinn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not much it wasn't her fault the reading was fine.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I think she narrated as well as she could, the story was just slow and boring unfortunately.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment mostly, I had good hopes in it especially as I have read a fair amount of geisha books. But really it was just a dull predictable tale.
