Sundays at Tiffany's by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet is a very heart warming book to read. The characters in the books are very real and genuine people. This is certainly a change of writing considering James Patterson wrote this.
The key relationship is of course Michael and Jane. The early relationship when Jane was 8, seems a little more than just best friends and there is something more than just friends. The key event where Michael left Jane I feel doesn't get as much emphasis as it should have done considering it is such an important scene, as Jane doesn't forget Michael. The moment where they meet when Jane is fully grown, took longer than it needed to and was dragged out, but was a special moment considering it happened in the Astor Court where they had many childhood memories.
The scene where Vivienne is in hospital, is a very sad scene and beautifully written and i'm sure will bring some tears. It was a scene required for us to appreciate Vivienne, who is portrayed as cold and unloving.

Overall, this is a very fun and heart warming read, and you will learn to love the main characters, Jane, Michael and Vivienne and the whole story is fantastic.

Jane was eight years old when her imaginary friend, Michael, had to leave her. Michael promised that she wouldnt remember him, sparing any hurt whatsoever. But she did remember and so did Michael, so clearly. Twenty three years later, Jane works not only 9-5 but 9-9 at her possessive mothers production company where she is producing a play and movie based on the adventures that Michael and Jane had when she was little. In the middle of it all, Jane meets Michael again & and they are both surprised that neither of them forgot each other. In the mist of love, memories, wounded hearts, and a painful future, Jane and Michael must to do everything to stay together.

Sundays at Tiffanys started sweet and until the last 1/6 of the book, I loved it. It was imaginable while being impossible and the love that Jane and Michael shared with unbelievable and touching. James Patterson twisted the idea of imaginary friends and made them reality. Then there was the last 1/6 of the book, the forty pages before the ending. It is clearly seen that an innocent relationship was not enough for them and they had to take it a step farther. It ruined everything the book had stood for: innocence, pure love, and the perfect relationship that had the perfect boundaries. I was highly disappointed with that subject but the ending had been lovely, though that still doesnt make up for the things that I didnt appreciate.

Contains:

*sexual references
*sex scenes
*brief paragraph that contains homosexuality
