I think this is a book I'm going to have to revisit in a decade, simply because everyone I know LOVES it and I just couldn't get into it, so maybe it's just me.

Having read Breakfast at Tiffany's I know Capote is a great writer, but here I feel like he has his hands tied. He sacrifices style for a very sparse, journalistic feel, and 300+ pages of that dry tone wore me down.
