I enjoy Truman Capote's writing. This book is a bit surprising because its far more edgy than the movie, which is very “twinkly” with Mancini's music and far too upbeat to be about a call girl. In fact, the whole sexual aspect in the movie is scrubbed out. You forget that Golightly and Varjack (sp?) are paid escorts. Apparently Capote hated the choice of Hepburn for the movie, instead preferring Marilyn Monroe for the role.
This story was about a woman coming into her own identity--becoming her own person separate from how she identifies herself because of their actions. Maz, mother of two small girls, and wife to a lousy guy, figures out over a few months, that she can really take care of herself--even amid all the wild curveballs her family throws her. The story is a good one that after awhile, our lives really are about us, and what we make of them after all. There were a few really good lines in this book. Probably closer to a 4 than a 3.
