Sundays at Tiffany's

Sundays at Tiffany’s by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet

What was this book about?

Imagine the story you would tell if your invisible friend was real – and just someone only you could see. How that would affect your growing up years until he left. Then to grow older missing the companionship that only he could provide. That is this story.

Jane was a child of a woman who was complicated and a man who was busy with other things in his life. She then met Michael the invisible friend she would never forget. As years pass, he has to leave her, but she never forgets him. When a chance meeting allows him to re-enter her life, neither of them know what is going to happen. It seems to be true love – but how does a producer and a invisible friend form a relationship.

What did you like/dislike about the book?

This story makes me feel like it is all possible. Enough true life elements – an overbearing mother, an idiot boyfriend, join with a touch of the supernatural in an invisible friend. While enough is explained to make you interested in that existence, it never is truly explained. Which may be a touch of why it is so interesting.

With every love story there is heartbreak and pain, joy and love, revelations in relationships. This story is the perfect example of that.

What genre would you consider this?
