Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson

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.
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.
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.
Can I say for the first time ever since I started reading books, I classify this as my number 1 for being weepy and disgustingly girly? Yes, I think I'm allowed because after all this is my site. Let's start with the title. Very catching and intriguing don't you think? But it also makes me doubtful? Why? Well because Sundays at Tiffany's? What is it supposed to be a copycat of Breakfast at Tiffany's? I've been eyeing this book for far too long already and yesterday browsing at Target it kind of present itself to me. The blurs as you can see will kind of remind you of the flicks: City of Angels and The Lake House. It has that bizarre love story that al ot of critics wanted to hate. This kind of book are one of the reasons why New York appeals so much to me. Ever since Breakfast at Tiffany's I was even willing to trade my Gucci Purse, Versace Sunglasses, Jimmy Choo and Tiffany's Bangle just so I can swap an apartment somewhere in Manhattan for a week. Ok back to business. Let's go with with the characters. It has the typical good people vs. bad people characters in it. Hugh was a jackass and most likely the worst possible guy in the world if he ever existed. Vivienne will be the person that has an ego larger than our universe. Michael and Jane was just plain perfect. I love the story, I will have rated this book 8 but as you can see it's not available on this site. I was smiling and feeling very Jane like a pugnacious idiot, I also cried - a lot (nothing new there) and-most of all I wanted to get inside the book and pounce on Hugh and Vivienne for being such an egotistical maniacs. All in all hands down the most fascinating love story written at the moment. The surprising twist just keeps coming from the beginning till the end. But you know what? the main reason that I love this book so much was it's so close to home. Like Jane I have imaginary friends, 3 actually and Iike her I never forgot them. Creepy I know.
