January Learn how and when to remove this template message The book opens with Jane Margaux and her imaginary friend, Michael, spending a Sunday at the St. Michael is an imaginary friend who is randomly assigned to children who need extra support and guidance.
However, he is called away from the children when they become nine years-old, at which point they will forget about the existence of their "friend" by the next day of their ninth birthday.
Jane needs extra attention because her mother, Vivienne Margaux, a Broadway producer, spends too much time with work and shopping for her many new husbands, but spends every Sunday at Tiffany's with her daughter. The next day is Jane's 9th birthday party, which coincides with her mother's production's opening night.
The cast and crew sing "happy birthday" to her, but her mother forgets about her and her father leaves quickly with his girlfriend. Jane is comforted by Michael, who tells her he must leave now that she is nine.
He promises her that she will forget about him. Twenty-one years later, Jane, who is now in her thirties and has not yet forgotten about Michael, lives in New York and works closely with her mother, who is now very controlling. Jane has produced a small, low-budget play called "Thank Heaven", based on her childhood with Michael. The play was an overnight hit, and now Jane is in the works of making a movie based on it. Jane isn't happy in life, though. She knows she is too dependent on her mother, and she is unwilling to face up to the fact that Hugh is an egomaniacal jerk.
One night, he stands her up for a dinner date, and she returns home rejected and hurt.
Michael, now on break from being an imaginary friend, catches sight of her walking into her hotel and instantly recognizes her. It's the first time he has ever seen one of his "kids" as an adult. For me, this is when the anxiety hits. This is when I realize that I am almost to the point where I have to wait for another James Patterson story to take me away. I immediately fell in lov How can I begin?
I immediately fell in love with young Jane. Such a sweet child so lost in the world of her glamorous mother. Jane has the fortunate gift of a wonderful friend, Michael. Michael is the utmost in imaginary friends. He is handsome, a great listener, and he is entirely devoted to his Jane. Michael's and Jane's friendship is completely charming and wonderful, and I found myself thinking I should have thought larger when I had my own imaginary friend.
Jane as an adult is equally loveable. You find her likeable from the get go and you desperately want to see this woman happy. I do not want to go into anything that could remotely give the story away, but I will say that this goes above and beyond in good story telling with an ending that is not predictable.
Sundays at Tiffany's is a truly remarkable story, and I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to read it. I started this book expecting to be a sweet, heart-warming holiday-ish read with a bit of a fantastical element. Granted, it indeed is a delightful, fantastical read to some extent, and I actually enjoyed reading this, but I cannot deny I was left feeling underwhelmed when I closed the book.
The premise is intriguing and the plot flows nicely. I would say this is such a page-turner with a strong first half.
Jane was supposed to have forgotten about Michael at an instant when he left Jane on her 9th birthday. Michael is such an adorable character. The way he gets all flustered by the encounter with Jane which was what he least expected is such a delight to read, it had me giggling so many times and my anticipation was just on the rise as I kept turning pages.
The development from old friends to love interests is also captivating, such a fun to follow. Despite the interesting, promising start, the plot started taking a paint-by-numbers approach and turned into a typical romance.
Once again, I did quite enjoy their friends-to-lovers relationship development and I found the writing strong. There were lots of compelling scenes that drove me up the walls and made my heart squeeze with sadness.
Oh, Classic son-of-a-bitch-type-of bastard, Hugh , and the story line. One part of me was telling me to take it in as is, but another part of me was trying in vain to put two and two together and figure out what he really is. ON top of all this, I found the twist in the end which happens in the last 20 pages a bit over the top.
As he said so himself in the story, his rationale is just a stab in the dark, nothing is concrete nor clearly explained. I think 3 stars will be a fair rating, for me, that is. Feb 05, Henry rated it liked it Shelves: This is one of those books that I am not supposed to like for a variety of reasons.
One being that it is a mass marketed author which I seem to have a prejudice against. There is no real reason for this mind set, I just seem to have it. Secondly, it is a really sappy sort of love story and I think that kind of book is just for girls. I know, I know, another unreasonable mind set, but I felt like I should be under a umbrella at the beach behind a pair of Ray Ban Sunglasses And finally, it is wr This is one of those books that I am not supposed to like for a variety of reasons.
But you know what? I liked the book. True, it is a sappy love story. And true, it is mass marketed. But for some unjustified reason I liked it. I found it a simplistic read that required no background knowledge but it would be nice to have been to Astors in New York City at some point in my lfe and I finished it quite rapidly. The story is about a little girl who has a imaginary friend that no one else can see and who, when the girl turns nine, must leave her forever.
But later in life, when this little girl grows up, her imaginary friend comes back into her life by accident. I now what you are thinking. The second half of the book Michael, the imaginary friend, tries to rationalize why this is happening, why are all the rules being broken, why did he cut himself shaving, why does his heart hurt? But Michael can never stay in one place long, he always has another job and no one ever remembers him. Why is this time different?
But it can't last Feb 28, Kate rated it did not like it.
I was aware that I was not the audience for this book going in. I did. I felt high minded about it too, and secretly hoped that it would be a fluffy, fun read.
I hope never to read something so ridiculous and poorly written again. It was actually written not by James Patterson, but by Gabrielle Charbonnet. Patterson does this often, comes up with an outline or a plot idea, contracts it out, slaps his name on it and makes a fortune. Far be it from me to judge, but I do know that this book under some unknown name would never get published. With so many worthy writers out there, this is a shame.
Sep 15, Joella rated it it was amazing. This book was wonderful. Halfway through I told my kids and husband the story at dinner and they were all enthralled. Jane and Michael are great characters with comendable personalities. The book made me laugh several times.
The characters were so real life. Other than the fact that Jane was very rich and Michael's occupation was an invisible friend that is. My 9 year old daughter asked if she could read the book because she thought it sounded so good. Up til the last hour of the book I would ha This book was wonderful. Up til the last hour of the book I would have said yes.
The only thing that happened that I wouldn't want her to read up til that point was that Jane's boyfriend Hugh said the F word a few times. There is a very short love scene at the end that she is not old enough to read but I am sure today at dinner I will have to finish the story for them. I would recommend this book to anyone. It made me laugh, love life and tear up a couple of times.
Oct 31, Rebecca McNutt rated it it was ok Shelves: I liked the concept of this book, but what started out as a riveting story about an adult woman's imaginary friend from childhood returning to her, soon became just another typical chick-lit romance with little else going for it. May 14, Maria Ella rated it it was amazing Shelves: If I was Jane what will I do to release myself from the jaded mediocre life..? This is how Patterson will teach me - through this novel.
I found the book online and placed it in my handheld gadget. As soon as it was stored I get comfortable on my bed and started reading. Enjoying the moments, both happy and sad, it made me realize some things. Review and Reflections: We work our assignments together, play our games together, even run some errands together. We have owned such precious moments, and it will forever stay in our hearts. That is why I cried a tear when Michael told Jane that her 9th birthday is the last day he will stay with her, thus, the end of his assignment.
Whatever will happen to Jane from that night on? Michael told us that Jane will simply forget that he arrived and became her friend. Such treasure etched in her heart. As well as in mine. Fast forward and Jane is a messed-up. She is supposed to be living thirty, flirty and thriving but hell, she is with her mom and acting "okay" with her boyfriend named Hugh who is an actor - living the life "okay" though she is crying inside.
Depressed and on the brink of tears, she took down a memory lane and finally, to where her happiest moment was - taking a large sundae on a Sunday afternoon across Tiffany's. Suddenly it felt right. But what about Michael?
Is he real? I will not elaborate the lovey-dovey parts of the story for I do not want to spoil the magic, but Patterson taught us to not forget , and no matter how tough the situation is, holding on to the happiest moment is the key to make it all right.
We have the power of attraction , a successful mantra that whatever challenge we are facing, we are to undergo and survive all this.
In life and in love, the mantra is so powerful, it can mold faces and make two total strangers look like the same over the years. It can leap through time, transcend through generations, and fly sky-high. I may not yet experience the kind of love that does not forget, but I have my power of attraction as my weapon.
And believe me, I can give you one too. View all 6 comments. Nicholas Sparks Fans. This is a novel to download Mum for Mother's Day! It's filled with the instant gratification of a Mills and Boon combined with the sigh-worthy love story of 'The Notebook'. If you made me do a blind read on this one, I would never believe it was written by a man Now, I can't tell you too much without giving it away so I'll let the novel's byline do the talking: What if you're imaginary friend was your one true love?
Think about it.
What a cool concept! I must admit tha This is a novel to download Mum for Mother's Day! I must admit that part of the novel's charm is trying to figure out exactly who or what Michael is and how on Earth he and Jane are going to get a happy ending. It is sorrow and joy, childhood and adulthood, beginnings and endings, all in one compact, delightful little novel.
Patterson has created another great little read that will leave you feeling, well, happy. If you've read 'The Notebook' or 'Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas', you'll know that when I say happy ending, I'm not guaranteeing it won't be sad. Read this novel if: You've loved 'The Notebook' or any of Nicholas Sparks's novels. The similarities between these two are significant. That book is easily worth 5 stars.
Don't read this novel if: Emotions make you feel uncomfortable! Lol, seriously, if you don't cry at movies or commercials, you may not enjoy this one. Definitely a book for the saps! Jun 26, Mandy rated it really liked it. Reading this book for me was akin to curling up with a cup of hot chocolate and fuzzy blanket next to a fireplace.
Cozy, sweet, warm, and just lovely. I really enjoyed the story of Jane and her journey of self discovery. The love story may have waxed a bit sappy in some places or racy in one The relationship between Michael and Jane was so sweet. I also thought it was interesting to observe the dynamic between Jane and her mother.
I was so proud of Jane when she started t Reading this book for me was akin to curling up with a cup of hot chocolate and fuzzy blanket next to a fireplace. I was so proud of Jane when she started to come into her own. The ending surprised me, but I thought it very appropriate and actually liked it. So, if you are looking for a really lovely book that is pure enjoyment and fun, pick this one!! Feb 27, Kara rated it did not like it. I think this book is LAME!
I rolled my eyes throughout the story Maybe it makes us feel emotions that are locked away inside. Jane is an often lonely character; she has a difficult and strained relationship with her mother and an absent father, and so as a young girl she has an imaginary friend, a grown man named Michael.
We then flash forward some twenty-three years to the still lonely and insecure adult Jane and what happens when she becomes reunited with Michael. Is it all just a dream? Did she wish him up? Or is he her guardian angel? Take Michael, our leading man: Then there was our leading lady, Jane: And Jane's mother Vivian: A high-powered New York showbiz executive, always dressed up to the nines, always busy, always caring about appearances, never feeling genuine, domineering, manipulative , plastic surgery junkie….
So while this may have been bittersweet it was definitely on the creepy side of things if you let your mind go there… Yeah just.. I stopped thinking about whether Michael was experienced at this or not. We were together, and I just loved being with him. Maybe because I could tell that Michael was happy to be with me too.
I could feel it in his touch, and I could see it in his green eyes. He was loving this as much as I was. I kissed him again, tasted the sweetness of his mouth, then pulled my face away. I looked into his eyes and whispered, "okay, yes, please.
Yup cos here it comes I wanted an easy non-taxing read and yes I got that…. Aug 01, Julie rated it did not like it. I have to say I am truly disappointed in this book. I think it takes a lot to make me unsatisfied with a read but this book just didn't do it for me.
Both of those books were fabulous and very quick reads. I loved them. I thought Sundays at Tiffany's would be the same but it wasn't. I am not giving anything away here but the main character fall I have to say I am truly disappointed in this book. I am not giving anything away here but the main character falls in love with her imaginary friend. It says this right on the front of the book.
I had reserved the book at the library on-line and did not really know the premise of the story. After seeing the cover and reading the back I was skeptical but I thought I would give it a shot. As I was ready the book is frustrating and confusing. Is the imaginary character real? Can other people see him? Sometimes it seems so and sometimes it doesn't.
