Sunday's at Tiffany's
by: James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet
AN IMAGINARY FRIEND Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, a powerful Broadway producer, makes time for her only once a week, for their Sunday trip to admire jewelry at Tiffany's. Jane has only one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He's perfect. But only she can see him. Michael can't stay forever, though. On Jane's ninth birthday he leaves, promising her that she'll soon forget him.
AN UNEXPECTED LOVE Years later, in her thirties, Jane is just as alone as she was as a child. And despite her own success as a playwright, she is even more trapped by her overbearing mother. Then she meets someone-a handsome, comforting, funny man. He's perfect. His name is Michael . . .
AND AN UNFORGETTABLE TWIST This is a heartrending story that surpasses all expectations of why these people have been brought together. With the breathtaking momentum and gripping emotional twists that have made James Patterson a bestselling author all over the world, SUNDAYS AT TIFFANY'S takes an altogether fresh look at the timeless and transforming power of love.
I never expected to enjoy this book so much. Never did I think that I would absolutely adore it, and read it in a matter of hours. I loved the characters - I loved the story - I loved the location, I loved EVERYTHING.
It is kind of reminiscent of Breakfast at Tiffany's, just simply because of Tiffany's calming aspect, and me being a huge Audrey Hepburn fan, that had to help. But it takes place in New York, and we first meet the eight year old Jane and her imaginary friend Michael. She's eating a coffee chocolate sunday and the two of them are playing the "Jane and Michael game" which just involves making up stories about the people they see. It's very cute. Their interaction is entertaining from the get-go.
But it doesn't carry on so happy go lucky forever. Jane isn't staying 8 forever - and so on the day of her ninth birthday, he has to leave. But he claims she will forget him, that when she wakes up, she won't remember.
But he was wrong.
Twenty three years later Jane is grown, and works for her mother - the Broadway play producer who owns her own company,but Jane has recently produced her own show Thank Heaven
which is the story of a girl - and her imaginary friend.
Then they meet again - after twenty three years, that's when the story really starts and get's amazing.
Throw in a actor boyfriend and a crazy yet sentimental mother and you have the ingredients for one awesome story.
It was amazing, and here's a quote because I am a crazy book underliner - yes I know some will say I ruin the book but it's okay. :]
"Why do things this beautiful make me want to cry?" I asked Michael as I leaned into him. It was an ungaurded question, one I'd never have asked of Hugh
"I don't know," said Michael. "Maybe beauty, true beauty, is overwhelming, it goes straight to our hearts. Maybe it makes us feel emotions that are locked away inside." He blinked and gave a bashful smile. "Sorry. I've been watching Oprah again."
