really liked it
Read in August, 2007

Capote is that balance between style and storytelling. He keeps you interested in his characters and their fate, yet certain passages scream to be reread before finding out what happens next.
Breakfast at Tiffany's gives Capote a chance to flaunt his skill for dialogue. Holly Golightly is charming of course, but the book version is also off putting. This seeming contradiction is resolved in her musical words. She speaks with a propulsion that is neither forced, or desparate. Instead, the reader is lured into it.
Great book.
