Is it blasphemy to say that this is an instance in which I think the movie is better than the book? Breakfast at Tiffany's has always been a favorite movie of mine and until now I had never read the book. Now that I've read the book, I feel like the movie got everything exactly right...and made is all so much better. The novel is a quick read, which made me feel like the characters were never fully developed...even Holly Golightly seemed a little underwhelming in the novel, and she is supposedly ...more

I think nearly everyone has read this book,but always see's the movie before they read the book...i have seen the movie a million times and love the book just as much...prefer the ending in the movie though...

Whoops, I didn't read the script ... I meant the book.
My edition of this - liberated (read: stolen) from my aunt's bookshelf, because I believe books are made for reading, not decoration - has four short stories in it: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, House of Flowers, A Diamond Guitar and A Christmas Memory. I don't know if that's customary, but obviously I, being an idiot, thought they were chapters. Regardless.

I'm not sure what to say about them. A Christmas Memory was vapid, inconsequential, with pretty writing - but it sent a chill through me at the la

It started with 'oh! I love Audrey Hepburn, I love the movie so I will like this book'. Holly Golightly is far intense, far gentle, far elegant in the movie than in this book. Characters are not well developed in the book. I could watch the movie thousands times (again! and again!) but cant read the book one more time.

fun book - I've always been a fan of Audrey Hepburn, who has a reputation for being not only a fine actress, but a woman of character - unusual in the Movie biz. anyway, lots of trivia and interesting tidbits about her life and the making of the movie. My favorite bit of inside info is her not so flattering impression of George Peppard.

holly gets in some pretty amazing one-liners... "I'll never get used to anything. Anybody that does, they might as well be dead." "Certain shades of limelight wreck a girl's complexion." and the story might as well be taken from today's city - people don't change that much...

Interesting and not quite what I expected......Disney really changed it !!!! Hollis character seemed tormented throughout, and since I live much more logically I was glad the book wasn't more than 100 pages

I wanted to like it more. I felt the same about the movie. I love Audrey Hepburn so I feel like I should love this book and the film... but I just don't. I did hear Audrey's voice speaking all of Holly's lines tho. Audrey's voice was the best part of the book LOL.

suka dengan karakter Tiffany yg berani (pada zamannya tergolong berani :D), bebas berpikir, lincah, menikmati hidup, ceria, dan tidak membiarkan hal apapun termasuk uang untuk membuatnya menyingkir dari jalan yg diimpikannya.

reach your dreams, set it high! 3 stars.

This book bores me. The character is uninteresting and lacks depth no matter how hard the author tries to portray her otherwise.

I'm sad I saw the movie a million times before I finally read the book. I liked the movie ending better :(

One of my new favorite books. I totally could hear Audrey Hepburn through the whole book.

Just realized I rated the script and not the book. Meant to rate the book ;) It was fun to see where Holly Golightly started. She's a little more independent in the book.

It was told from a 2nd perspective like Gatsby. Capote just wrote observations, what happened without adding judgement, it was just what other characters said that assigned judgement.
