Review: Sundays at Tiffany's
Title: Sundays at Tiffany’s
Author: James Patterson
Date published: 2009
Type of book: Fiction (Imaginary friends, Love, Family, Body Image)
I received this book from/at: Les Cheneaux Community Public Library
My interest in this book is: plot
Ideas expressed/message/plot: From inside cover: “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…
AN UNFORGETTABLE TWIST.”
Favorite characters, quotes/lines: Jane: she reminds me of me at times. She so easy to relate to; Michael: isn’t he every girl’s dream?
When I finished this book I felt: I really liked aspects of this book. The love story was cute and well executed. It was kind of odd though that in so many ways Michael still saw Jane as an eight-year-old, and he was totally in love with her. Emotionally and physically. Overall, it was a quick, easy read, but satisfying!
Other books to read by this author: there are many – too many to list
I would recommend this book to: Patterson fans/love story fans
