Sundays at Tiffany's - James Patterson

Awesome quick read! Angel, I'm sending this one to you when Josh comes back that way. I read it while we were on the road, and it only took like 4 hours from start to finish. I love the whole imaginary friend idea, and James Patterson did a good job of making it not creepy - the guy started out as her imaginary friend when she was little, and then they fell in love when they were older. Sneaky little twist near the end. Fun characters. I totally imagined Glenn Close as the mother b/c she acts alot like the Devil Wears Prada lady. Funny to me that the cover has a brunette girl and looks kind of foreign, and the girl in the book is blonde. Oh well.

Read this one when you want a short break from something else.

I listened to the unabridged audiobook. I didn't cry, but I was very touched. The twist at the end was really surprising and clever, and I don't think Michael was creepy either...for the most part. That could have gone very wrong for Mr. Patterson if he wasn't careful. I know Michael goes from imaginary to real, but his whole transition is still kind of confusing to me. I mean, I know what happened, but it's almost like even though he's not imaginary anymore you still have to make-believe to accept what happened. It's fiction...I know.

And having a blonde main character in the story and a brunette portrayed on the cover is just annoying and funny because it's not consistent.

Oh well. Good, touching story.
