The story is different in many ways and, in my opinion, much better. Capote is a master at characterization. Holly Golightly is so vividly described that I felt as if I were stumbling along in her misguided steps. Her neighbor, who is in love with her, beautifully narrates the tale. Holly has had a tough life. Her search for a better life centers on hooking a man with money. She is the consummate party girl leading a bohemian lifestyle in New York city.
I loved this story. It is short, but heartfelt. I cried for Holly at the end. I so wanted her to find peace and happiness. I am grateful to have read this. It is a touching story.
