If you are looking for a quick read, and have any interest at all in the major players of this movie and how Capote fit into his era, this might be the book for you. After I read it, I passed it on to my mom to read, and she enjoyed it as well.
This item was a real surprise. I was concerned in advance that it be a recital of procedural steps in makeing the movie. No So. It turned out to be an attention grabber and one that held attention. I was so enchanated that I read it all the way thru in one session, only stopping for a snack and water.
