So, I listened to Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I never saw the movie, but I loved the song. I can’t say that I know anyone who didn’t like it. It was enough to make me want to read Capote’s book.
There are certain books that everyone knows, even though they haven’t read them. Breakfast at Tiffany’s was one such book for me. When I saw it on a daily Audible deal, I thought that it was a great chance to experience it.
Dexter (Michael C. Hall) as a narrator was a huge win from my perspective. His melancholic voice was a perfect fit for the temperamental protagonist. I think in certain situations it works having a narrator/voice that comes with some baggage. The connection with the audience is already established.
Capote’s story is shorter than what I typically go for in an Audible, but it served as a good transition. The story kept me involved and interested. Well worth the time.
