    suicide isn t the happiest of topics the suicides of five sisters is even less pleasant how do you recommend a book to someone on such a grim topic easy just read it what eugenides does so well is capture the mystery of secluded sisters, as seen through the eyes of neighborhood boys this is important in reading the novel it s not necessarily the lisbon sisters story, but rather the boy

    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

    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 fo...

    Wow, you knew that this guy was the real deal after all.I see this as a perfect segue to his masterpiece Middlesex It s simple, it s sad, it is capital I Intriguing The first novel always announces the author s intentions for those that come next, and Eugenides loves the themes of adolescence in all its tragic shortcomings The Lisbon girls are monoliths to the nameless suitors who do nothing

    I don t even really know what to say I think maybe a few people are going to be disappointed that I didn t give this five stars, and I mean, I m upset that it wasn t five stars either, but hear me out.The thing I liked the most about this book is the perspective We re learning about 5 girls who commit suicide. and we NEVER hear anything substantial from any of the sisters It was genius The way
