This book is like a preface where the real book never feels like it begins Endless foreshadowing mixed in with various teenage boy obsessions about what a home with five daughters must entailboxes and boxes of tampons etc I couldn't wait for these girls to kill themselves just so the book would be over

Ous Lux; the sisters' breathtaking appearance on the night of the dance; and the sultry sleepy street across which they watched a family disintegrate and fragile lives disappear. Where to begin I have read some of the reviews of others who did not care for or get this book I admit that the plotstoryline though uniue is not what makes this story great it's the prose The writing is luminous and reads like poetry than a novel We don't even know exactly who the narrators are it is narrated in first person plural and the name and even number of narrators is left vague Eugenides uses metaphor to describe the deaths of the sisters as the disintegration of a suburban neighborhood the trees are being cut down because of the threat of Dutch Elm disease; there are dying flies everywhere that are described by the first sister to commit suicide as not even having time to eat before their lives are over There are so many themes in the story going through the layers is akin to peeling an onion The writing is so lovely that it induces a dreamlike state in the reader Everything is described so perfectly that you can not only see clearly what is being described but smell the various smells and recall with clarity everything from that time period Eugenides did not throw this book together; in my mind's eye I see him sitting at his desk turning each phrase over and over in his hands until he gets it exactly right Yet the writing is not strained at all in fact it seems to have flowed effortlessly from his pen This is a gifted writer whose work will be read for generations to come long after Eat Pray Gag is in the remainder pile Elizabeth Gilbert Chris Bohjalian Jodi Picoult Robert James Waller John Grisham read this and weep To this list I add myself since I would give anything to be able to write half as well as Eugenides As for those who look for a conventional plot line like all of the other books out there and do not find it why EXACTLY did the girls kill themselves In the real world not everything in life can be explainedI loved the book so much that I immediately rented the movie It was awful with the exception of James Wood who nailed the part of the father beautifully

summary The Virgin Suicides

I simply didn't get this book I was so desperate to find hidden meaning in it but there was nothing Why waste so much paper and ink on something so overtly pretentious and so utterly meaningless A group of oppressed sisters kill themselves after flirting with the neighborhood boys How horrible that it happened in the middle of suburban America where white picket fences are supposed to render such neighborhoods impermeable to tragic teenage death In the end all I got from this book was the fact that the girls were peculiar and hello at least one was not a virgin when she committed suicide the boys were immature the girls' parents were psychotic Okay sure I get that there may have been metaphors and themes about the hypocrisy of middle America oppressive religion etc etc but I wasn't impressed I saw Sofia Coppola's film afterward; no it did not improve my understanding or appreciation of the filmI had read Middlesex by Eugenides and thought he was a genius This book proved he is only an occasional genius Sadness
