Honest confession – I didn’t know there was a book. I only knew about Audrey Hepburn and her movie, so obviously I watched the movie before I read the book.
Holly Golightly reminds me of my late teens and early twenties. She is always trying to escape from situations where she feels trapped. She compares herself to a wild animal – no captivity always free. I guess that is why she does not give a name to her cat.
The setting of New York is wonderfully captured. As I recently visited the place, I could relate to it even more. And yes, every I time imagined Holly, I could only think of Audrey Hepburn, and her LBD.
