Review: Breakfast at Tiffany's

Breakfast at Tiffany's
Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've only seen the movie once, and while I didn't love it, I liked it enough to seek out the original story, hoping the book would have a better story. Capote's writing, of course, is very clear and strong and pleasurable to read. I finished it in one sitting (very short). I found myself enjoying the other short stories tucked in the back more than Breakfast at Tiffany's. I'm just not drawn to the storyline, I guess. Breakfast at Tiffany's gets three stars, and I give the book four stars for the stories in the back of my edition, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
