Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote
I read this book after hearing lots of positive reviews about this book. It is relatively a small book and hence I decided to read it during one of my travel.
It is a collection of 4 short stories – Breakfast at Tiffany’s, House of Flowers, A Diamond Guitar and A Christmas Memory. I am going to write a brief review of these stories in the order of my liking.
A Christmas Memory
A beautiful story about two cousins, who are generations apart by their age, and their dog. The bond shared by them, their weird family, their yearly rituals and the loss of a companion is all this story about. This is the last story in the collection and it left me teary-eyed!
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Even before I started reading this book, I had developed a picture of Holly Golightly in my mind. I think this story moved to the second position because of my over expectations from the other reviews. However, the secret of Holly Golightly is worth a read and I enjoyed the dreaming impulsive girl.
I am yet to watch the movie and I hope it lives up to the book.
A Diamond Guitar
A prized possession in the hands of an young convict. A story about friendship, betrayal and perspective. This one will leave you wondering!
House of Flowers
A love story that I found a little weird. This was the second story in the collection and it left me wondering why is this a part of this collection!
Well, to sum it up, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and other short stories in this collection are definitely a good read with deep meaning. Another book added to my collections!
