Book review:

Breakfast at Tiffany's by Capote Truman was first published in 1958 and it's actually set in the early 40s it's about an anonymous writer and the friendship that he struck up with his neighbor Holly Golightly 

who's a New York Knick girl who lived in the apartment below him from the get-go we discover that Holly isn't your average 19 year old she has an aura of mystery around her she deflects any personal questions about herself on her past so the writer has his work cut out for him the story is focused on 

Holly and the people who she came into contact with and even though the writer is anonymous we get a good sense of him and his character he has a warm voice and he obviously cares very deeply for Holly and he just wants what's best for her he looks back at his friendship with her 

he really appreciates it and I think it goes to show that you can have a connection with someone and no matter how brief and still leave a lasting impression years later on Holly's character is fascinating 

but I found her quite irritating most of the time she's a young woman who's trying to outrun her past and create a better future for herself but in doing so she's creating a new version of herself an upgrade if you will you can come to your own conclusion as to why she's doing 

this but I think it's fairly obvious and it's quite understandable as well Truman Capote's writing style is exactly what I had anticipated it to be now I'm someone who read in cold blood and I really didn't gel with that book whatsoever but luckily I really really enjoyed 

this he writes with a certain Flair and he doesn't shy away from being outrageous for example at a certain point Holly states that she wants a lesbian roommate because they're so neat and tidy basically she wants someone to clean up after her but after a while she starts using the word Dyke and I think we have to think about 

this in the term of the context of the character Holly is someone who likes to shock people and she likes to get a rise out of them and that's what she's trying to do to the writer in 

this moment she's also very young and naive and has her own notion so stereotyping lesbians this way wouldn't be out of the ordinary for someone like her but then you also have to remember that Truman Capote is a gay man who's writing 

this characters so there's no maliciousness here context time in place all matter and I think it's important to remember that before diving into this or diving into any older novel and then making assumptions about at the writing I'm only saying 

this because in researching the quote specifically that I wanted to pull for this which I couldn't find online I discovered a messaging board where people were complaining that 

Truman Capote was homophobic when he is a gay man the story was far more engrossing than I had expected it to be and just learning that ha legal II's character is actually 19 and not the 30 year old that Audrey Hepburn was when she depicted 

her in the film adaptation made a lot more sense I have a much deeper perspective on Holly's character now and knowing that she's 19 makes her worldview and how she navigates it much more understandable you know youth harbors no fear and she's young and naive and lacks clear foresight and she likes to live in the moment she has 

this attitude that somehow things will always work out for her and it can be quite scary some of the situations she gets herself into but overall I did really enjoy this novella and it's much better than the film in my opinion and I think if you go into this expecting the film you're going to come out of it really disappointed I believe there's only about two scenes 

so in this that actually overlap with the film aside from that it's a very different story and it's not really a romance it's more of a story on friendship but certainly check it out if you're interested in learning more about the character of Holly Golightly.
