I have to wonder just who is the audience these authors had in mind? Parts of this book are intended for mature audiences only. Other parts are intended for immature audiences only. Go figure.
From this reader's POV, it's kind of tough to know just how to take this story. It has elements of fantasy, humor, suspense (sort of) and, of course, mind-blowing fantasy (I know, I said that already. It bears repeating.) I was far more willing to suspend my disbelief when I read the Twilight series than this.
It's not unusual for a child to have an imaginary friend (mine was a talking crow who rode around on my shoulder -- true!) But just how many little girls would have a 35 year old man as an imaginary friend? That's just weird, bordering on kinky, IMO. Then, to have that imaginary friend show up again when the little girl grows up -- and to have him transform into a "real" human -- well, I am just not buying it.
The storyline poses so many more questions than answers. Like, for instance, how long had Michael been in the imaginary friend business? Who was the dispatcher who told him which assignment to take next? How did he morph into a 'real' human? Did all imaginary friends eventually evolve (assuming, of course, they, too, found the love of their lives)? And why in the known world would the author have Michael admit that, yes, he had had sex before, and then have absolutely no further mention of it? I mean, COME ON! Enquiring minds want to know!
The dialog was snappy and occasionally witty even if it did at times sound like a children's book. The co-author, Gabrielle Charbonnet, has authored several children's books, so it's likely her words you hear through most of the book. It's certainly a rare combination of talents that form this story, but not a combo I'm likely to seek out in the future. Sorry, but for me it's thumbs down on this one.
Sundays at Tiffany's, is a fairy tale for adults and sometimes we have to remember that it's still all right to have fantasies and dreams. This book made me feel so much....and it is very rare that a book makes me feel for the characters when reading it. I can read this book over and over again and still feel thankful for reading it...even after multiple reads.
I loved it. Please, don't be perverted or cynical when reading this, let yourself go and enjoy the innocence of Jane and Michael!

This light and lovely piece of fiction has more in common with Robert Nathan’s tender stories from the 1930s and 1940s than it does modern day...Read more
