Review of Breakfast at Tiffany's and Three Stories by Truman Capote

Elaborate Description

Short stories that are a light read. No depth to the stories. Very little to no character development. In Breakfast at Tiffany's, the good parts of the story had to do with contradictions with Holly being a phony, but a real phony, and the fact that the place she calls home is traveling itself. In House of Flowers, the way people try to obtain attention is interesting. In A Diamond Guitar, the outcome of the poisoners and the twist is compelling. In A Christmas Memory, the interaction between the generations is engrossing.
