In My Library... Breakfast at Tiffany's

Truman's novella only loosely resembles the classic film, in my opinion, and I'm of the mindset that the novella is far superior... sorry - I know people adore the movie!

In this quick read, Holly is portrayed as a much darker character than Audrey made us love. She's constantly scamming, climbing, shocking, and hustling the older men of New York City. The story and characters are a bit more complex, and Holly's unstable antics are put in the appropriate environment.

I love this story so much! It's definitely worth the read.

I've been in the mood for a really good read and this sounds perfect! I love Breakfast at Tiffany's but I've never read the book. Thanks for the heads up!
