Sundays at Tiffany’s by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet

February 14, 2011

I borrowed this book from the local library.

My rating for Sundays at Tiffany’s –3

About:
“Sundays at Tiffany’s” (movie website) by James Patterson (Website) & Gabrielle Charbonnet is a romance (appropriate for Valentine’s Day).  My wife actually borrowed the book and I picked it up after she was done. I believe it took me about a day to read it.

Thoughts:
Does James Patterson even writes these books?

The foundation of the story sounds very promising.

Jane, poor little rich girl has an imaginary friend as a young girl; her imaginary friend leaves her as she turns the ripe old age of nine – but she never forgot him. As a grown up, Jane is now a poor big rich girl cowering under her mother’s shadow and acting as a doormat for her jerk of a boyfriend until she meets her long lost imaginary friend.
Is she crazy?
Is he an angel?
You’ll have to find out for yourself.

This isn’t a great work of fiction, the adjectives are numerous and sprinkled around generously – but it’s a fun, cheesy and quick read, albeit corny and predictable with a “Star Trek” type ending (everything gets wrapped up in the last few pages).

But sometime you just need one of those.

Synopsis:
Jane is a little girl who is all alone. Her mother, an important Broadway persona and has no time for her. Jane does have a friend, Michael but only she can see him.

As Jane grows up she stays lonely.  One day she meets Michale again and to his surprise, she can see him.

    This is the only James Patterson I have read and will certainly be my last. It really wasn’t my taste, although I did think the premise was interesting.

      I can’t say it would be my last Patterson book but I agree with your comment. The premise was very interesting, the execution – not so much.

    Great review. I must admit, I’m quite tempted by the film.

    Side note: This cover is SO much better than the paperbacks.

      The movie does look “all right”, doesn’t it?
      Not my cup of tea but it would be a nice evening with the wife.

    Despite his having written a gazillion book, I’ve never read a Patterson. Seeing his name reminds me of Virginia Andrews (TM!), whose name appeared on new books for years after her death…I think she’s still being published today!

      Same with Robert Ludlum and Ian Fleming – they write books such as “Ian Fleming’s James Bond in…”

    I think the word cheesy describes it well… likable but not a deep read 🙂
