AN IMAGINARY FRIEND
Jane Margaux is a lonely little girl. Her mother, the powerful head of a New York theater company, makes time for her only once a week, for their Sunday trip to admire jewelry at Tiffany's. Jane has only one friend: a handsome, comforting, funny man named Michael. He's perfect. But only she can see him. Michael can't stay forever, though. On Jane's eighth birthday he leaves, promising that she'll forget him soon. He was there to help her until she was old enough to manage on her own, and now there are other children who need his help.

AN UNEXPECTED LOVE
Years later, in her thirties, Jane is just as alone as she was as a child. And despite her own success as a playwright, she is even more trapped by her overbearing mother. Then she meets Michael again--as handsome, smart and perfect as she remembers him to be. But not even Michael knows the reason they've really been reunited.

AND AN UNFORGETTABLE TWIST
Sundays at Tiffany's is a heart-wrenching love story that surpasses all expectations of why these people have been brought together. With the breathtaking momentum and gripping emotional twists that have made James Patterson a bestseller all over the world, Sundays at Tiffany's takes an altogether fresh look at the timeless and transforming power of love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Hopeful Love Story The story is about a young woman struggling to live up to her mom’s expectations. As a little girl, Jane had always been lonely and her only true friend was Michael. The only problem was that no one else could ever see him since he was Jane’s imaginary friend. As she grew older, she had to let go of him, but twenty years after the sad goodbye, Jane meets him once more. This story brings us back to our childhood and the way we used to see the world. Like

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy read I loved this book! I did not think I would like it as much at first since it's so different from the James Patterson books that I am used to reading but this was such a nice a easy read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Book! When I first got this novel, I didnt know what to expect nor did I expect to like it that much. But I finished it in one sitting. James Patterson, wrote a book of a lonely little girl looking for a friend and than having to lose him. We all go through that as we get older. We lose friends and it hurts us. Jane had Micheal and that helped her through a lot. But when he leaves, It hurts her and she forgets about him. Wouldnt anyone love to just see their long lost friend again? This is a great book. I loved everything about it. Its not about Micheal being imagary, He was a real friend to Jane and that was all that mattered to her.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great So I thought this book was okay but I did think it was going to be a little bit better,I thought the concept seemed pretty strong but it is a tad bit strange but again it was okay. My one big issue with the book was that found the pace to be very slow moving I think if everything woud have developed faster without being rushed it would have benn better. I thought the characters were alright and the storyline again was okay. Overall good book but again not great. :0)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from strange but strange combination of elements: imaginary friends, childhood & sex...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from cute story but predictable Very easy to read especially after a long day. Not a "thinker". Cute story but not James Patterson's best.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oh and... I forgot to mention when I wrote my first review that there were too many ridiculous elements of this book that we are just expected to accept and not question. Um... imaginary friend sex? Enough said. DO NOT READ THIS.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time. This book was terrible. The plot is ridiculous and the ending doesn't even make sense. Not to mention that the writing is atrocious. HATED IT.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time I have been a James Patterson fan for years. I love his corss series and have read a few others of his. When I closed this book I said to my Husband, wow that was a waste of my time.Good thing it only took me a few hours to read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Cute!! This book is very sweet (and is very, very easy to read!!!). It's like someone took a children's story and tried to write it for grown ups. I found it was quite charming!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not at all what I expected After my epic disappointment in the Twilight Saga, I went in search of blood, and possible deception. Naturally, I picked up a James Patterson novel, only to find that this novel is quite unlike anything he has ever written. Writting with Gabrielle Charbonet - a children's author - I should have guess that this would read much like a fairy tale. Think Disney's Enchanted, minus the Disney parodies, cleverness, and decent storyline. Meet Jane. She's just turning 9 and about to lose her best friend in the entire world, Michael. Meet Michael. He's an adult male, but we're unsure of his exact age. Oh, did I mention he's INVISIBLE? Yes. Michael is Jane's invisible friend, who leaves her on her ninth birthday. All children are supposed to forget their imaginary friends once they've filled their friend quota. Not Jane. So what happens when these two meet more than twenty years later? Is it love? Or has she gone completely mental?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The sypnosis was better than the book The idea behind the book was very original and the length is ideal. However, the ending parts were lacking in structure and I thought the book didn't provide a satisfactory closure. Overall, a good read for a rainy day but don't expect too much from the story. Definitely better reads out there!
Date published: 2009-06-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked it! Even though it was a very quick read, I liked it. The idea in the story seemed interesting to me, and I was even at tears in some parts.
Date published: 2009-03-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from waste of time Very disappointing. It read like a fairytale for children. Maybe that's because, Gabrielle Charbonnet is a childrens writer who co wrote this book with James Patterson. I kept hoping it would get better, because it couldn't have gotten worse. But that never happened. Don't waste your money or even a trip to the library!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely This novel was an easy and quick read, one that really can touch the soul. Its a romantic novel, bringing laughter and tears to the readers eyes. It was a fast and simple read, but enjoyable none the less and I would recomend it to all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sunday's at Tiffany's I would like to begin this review first by saying I am not particularly a fan of James Patterson however I had never read a novel of his that was not a murder mystery so I gave Sunday's at Tiffany's an honest try. I found that I enjoyed the novel at the beginning, the relationship between a small girl and her imaginary friend seemed endearing and was an interesting premise though for me this did not translate well into an adult romantic relationship. While I did not dislike the book I was not completely satisfied with the story finding I was given not enough information. (It may be just me but I was more interested in the job description of being an imarginary friend than with the love story) So all in all Sunday's at Tiffany's was just OK. I don't have anything particularly bad to say, but nothing really good either. I would say it is worth a read but only for the lack of something else get into. ON A SIDE NOTE - I'm not sure if anyone will agree with me but does it not seem that James Patterson crammed as many relevant pop culture references into this novel as possible?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light & Fluffy Not exactly the deepest prose, Sundays At Tiffany's is never the less a charming (although superficial) read. Buy it in paperback, curl up on the couch, and enjoy a quick, but romantic story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A compelling story of friendship and love When Jane Margau was a little girl, she had an imaginary friend called Michael. When she turned nine, he dissapeared.Poor Jane lived through life for 30 years, working for her mother and creating her own play... But someone very familiar is in town.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely, easy read! This is another step away from detective work for Patterson. "Sunday's" was an easy read about two likable characters who find their way back to one another. If you are a hopeless romantic, you will surely enjoy this novel. I had a hard time putting it down! (Read Patterson's "Letters" novels for more easy reading.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Read!! Couldn't put it down! Everyone should have a love like the two main characters in this book! Another great book by James Patterson!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What a Corny book!!! I've read two other books from James Patterson and was very disappointed with Sundays at Tiffany's.It didn't even make sense most of the times .My advice would be to borrow it from the library .A total waste of my time.
Date published: 2008-07-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute must read! It was confusing intially with narratives from the 2 main characters but once you get used to it, it just keeps getting better. This is one for the hopeless romantics.. loved it !!
Date published: 2008-07-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Get it From the Library I found several problems with the writing in this book and the story itself - some inconsistencies (why is Michael visible sometimes and invisible at other times?), some loose ends left unexplained (why had Jane lost her appetite and become so sick?), and some things that just didn't sit well (something is just creepy about Jane and Michael getting together romantically after he'd been a father figure to her as a child). However, I must admit, I read it to the end, which I rarely do when I'm not enjoying a book. It was quick, easy, and light - a nice little story in some ways. I just wish I'd borrowed it from the library instead of spending money on the hardcover.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad overall the book was fine.. james patterson writes better mystery books.. this book was an easy read but it didn't keep me wondering what was coming next..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome book! I picked this book for my book report assignment and I'm glad I did. This book really gets you to turn the pages non-stop. It was a really touching story about a young girl who never forgets about her imaginary friend Michael and it ends up that he was her one true love. This is my first time reading a James Patterson book and I am planning that summer to read this series called "Maximum Ride" I recommend "Sundays at Tiffany's" to anyone over 15+. Read it or you'll regret. =]
Date published: 2008-06-19
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very light fare I read this book in less than a day. It's just over 300 pgs, but there is so much blank space framing the many 2-3 pg chapters, and the print is so large that it really reads more like a 200 pg novel. I liked the characters, but I didn't really care about them. The characters felt a bit one-dimensional, and the plot didn't seem all that well thought out. A great idea but the writing just didn't hold up for me.
Date published: 2008-06-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not What I Expected...loved it! I have to say this was the first James Patterson book I have ever read. I bought the book being totally pulled in by the cover and title which has an Audrey Hepburn air to it. I thought he was a dark and mysterious writer. I found it an easy read and light and warm hearted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A light touching tale! James Patterson spins a light, delightful tale of Jane and her imaginary friend Michael. Jane is alone as a child (with a busy working mother). Michael is her best friend, the time comes for Michael to leave (as all imaginary friends do). Jane is supposed to forget about him but years go by and Jane is still thinking about Michael......and one sees him again! The book is a quick read with tons of very short chapters. I felt that character development was weak at times - either that or was annoyed by the 1-2 page chapters. For a summer beach book though it was good.
