I finished reading Breakfast at Tiffany's this week, as well as the three short stories that were included in the book. Like I had already begun to suspect last week, it's definitely my favourite of the three books I've now read by Capote. The other two were In Cold Blood, which I thought was ok but not earth-shattering, and Other Voices, Other Rooms, which I didn't care for. After Other Voices, Other Rooms I wondered if Capote just wasn't for me so I'm really glad that I enjoyed Breakfast at Tiffany's as much as I did. Isn't it a great feeling to be pleasantly surprised by a book you weren't sure you'd like?
We actually looked for the film at the rental shop on the weekend but they only had one copy of it and it was out. But we'll try again and hopefully get to watch it before too long.
Now I'm reading An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro. I'm quite enjoying it so far and it reminds me slightly of The Makioka Sisters by Junichiro Tanizaki. Perhaps it's just because both books deal with marriage investigations for one of the daughters of the family, but they both also seem to look at the changing attitudes and Westernization taking place in Japan before and after WWII.
I was so sleepy earlier today that I ended up having a nap, but I did manage to read a few more pages before I fell asleep, and I look forward to getting back to it in just a little bit. What have you been reading this weekend?
