Summary from Publisher:

AN IMAGINARY FRIEND
Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, the powerful head of a New York theater company, 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 eighth birthday he leaves, promising that she'll forget him soon. He was there to help her until she was old enough to manage on her own, and now there are other children who need his help.


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 Michael again--as handsome, smart and perfect as she remembers him to be. But not even Michael knows the reason they've really been reunited.


AND AN UNFORGETTABLE TWIST
Sundays at Tiffany's is a heart-wrenching love 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 bestseller all over the world, Sundays at Tiffany's takes an altogether fresh look at the timeless and transforming power of love.


My Review:



I think this book may have single-handedly broke me out of my reading funk. I read this book in one sitting which is something I used to do in the days before graduate school, research and paper writing. I began reading this book at 12:30 am and finished at 2 am. It was that good.

There were so many things that I loved about this book. The writing was excellent. It was crisp and descriptive. The language was beautiful. I also loved both Jane and Michael. Jane was such a great character. She was completely likeable. It was really easy to empathize with her. Michael was also quite the leading man. Both of them go perfectly together. I found myself completely engaged in the novel from the beginning. This is the perfect book to read during a long afternoon or a free weekend.

Sundays at Tiffany’s does require a suspension of common sense and reality but if you can manage it, it is really worth it. It has an almost fairy tale-like quality and was really a great read.



Audiobook Review:


I decided to try Sundays at Tiffany’s as my first ever audiobook. I quickly discovered that it is not for me. It became very difficult for me to follow the story when I was just listening to it. I had to pick up the book and read along with it which kind of defeats the purpose. However, the audiobook perfectly complements the novel and I would recommend it to anyone who likes audiobooks.
