Micro Mention "Breakfast At Tiffany's"

Truman Capote

"Breakfast at Tiffany's" by Truman Capote is one of those short classics that I didn't know if I liked it initially, which is probably intentional. There is something about Capote's gossamer writing that keeps you invested and it's narrated brilliantly by Michael C. Hall—it got to me at the end.

I think what kept me invested beyond Capote's writing is the manic energy he infused in every character, even the narrator. They're all out to do—something, even if they're not sure what. It's like watching ambitious twenty-somethings all ping-ponging off of each other, not sure where they're going or what they want, but they know they want to get there fast. Also, and I talk about this more in my full review, which you can find here, but a lot of the characters feel like archetypical people you meet throughout life.
