May Reading 4/2

Breakfast at Tiffany's
Truman Copote

Ok, so it's really a Novella but putting that to the side I can honestly say this story was everything and nothing i expected all at the same time. While Holly is described as a blonde who looks all of 12 I could not help thinking of Audrey, who captured the essence of her to a T. The ending was an odd sort of Tragic, but I have to admit, closure is rare in real life, so it shouldn't appear any more readily in fiction. The first person account from...I don't think his real name is ever mentioned, let's call him Fred, give's Holly this beautiful shading that makes her real and flawed but lovable.

In short, Loved it, probably not enough to make me read In Cold Blood
