Holly Golightly, glittering socialite traveller, generally upwards, sometimes sideways and once in a while down. She's up all night drinking cocktails and breaking hearts. She's a shoplifter, a delight, a drifter, and a tease. She hasn't got a past. She doesn't want to belong to anything or anyone. Not to 'Rusty' Trawler, the blue-chinned, cuff-shooting millionaire man about women about town. Not to Salvatore 'Sally' Tomato, the Mafia sugar-daddy doing life in Sing Sing. Not to a starving writer. Not even to her one-eyed rag-bag pirate of a cat. One day Holly might find somewhere she belongs. Until then she's travelling.
Holiday Golighty- she's glamorous, comical, and crazy. I consider this as a short story, because any book under 200 pages is just short. Anyway good friend Jennie asked me which one is better the book or the movie? Hmmm... I am torn because Audrey hepburn played the role and I love the movie, so what I'm goin to do is write the difference of the book and the movie and you'll decide.
-Mag Wildwood's character have more personality and have more scenes in the book.
- Holly was 18 on the beginning of the book, which makes her a teen slut. Which I admire her for. - Mr. Yunioshi's photographer character was more visible and I cannot picture him as Mickey Rooney, plus he's much dignified in the book.
- The Narrator's name was "Buster". (cracked me up, when I read it)- It had a darker portrait of Holly. - I love dark characters and such, so...- The image in my head when I read: "Holliday Golithly, travelling..."
- 'It's better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place so vague. Just a country where the thunder goes and things disappear...' Holly Golightly
- Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard!!!
- I am a fan of the 60's and it goes to saying that I like a visual of what they wear how they act and what was New York then.
- You actually see her eating outside Tiffany's.
- the outfits and that long stem cig holder is so enticing.
- the part where she sang "Moon River" by her fire escape.
- it's funnier seeing Mag Wildwood dropped to the floor.
That's all I have Jen, so I guess I like both.
