book is a classic for a reason. Beautifully written, it has amazing
characters and totally original events, comedy, and turns of phrases.
Holly Golightly is such a great character that she's
now a piece of our culture. I've never seen the movie (which, knowing
movies, probably has a cheesy lovey-dovey ending), but I could still
picture her as the gorgeous Audrey. The girl is so original yet has such
well-crafted mannerisms that she reminds me of parts of many people I
in the book are familiar and comfortable. And frankly,
I just love reading books about Manhattan now that I'm living here.
