    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 th I simply didn t get this book I was so desperate to find hidden meaning in it, but t...

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here For me, what makes this novel different from those that I ve read so far is the narrator s voice first person plural and the brilliant way Jeffrey Eugenides born 1960 made use of it Since the story is about 5 teenage sisters and the narrators were interested on them, readers presumed that they were narrating from the viewpoint of schoolboys with raging hormones and think of sex almost every hour of the day Until the last sentence when Eugenides revealed that the narrators are already middle For me, what makes this novel different from those that I ve read so far is the narrator s voice first person plural and the brilliant way Jeffrey Eugenides born 1960 made use of it Since the story is about 5 teenage sisters and the narrators were interested on them, readers presumed that they were narrating from the viewpoint of schoolboys with raging hormones and think of sex almost every hour of the day Until the last sentence when Eugenides revealed that the narrators are already middle age men with thinning hair and soft bellies My perception of the story as a reader made a complete turnar...

    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 plot storyline, though unique, is not what makes this story great it s the prose The writing is luminous and readslike 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 subu Where to begin I have read some of the reviews of others who did not care f...

    Honestly, I really wanted to fall in love with this I ve long been aware of its status as a cult classic and many people I know, as well as people I don t know but whose taste seems to correspond closely with mine, have professed to adore it So I feel a bit uncomfortable about revealing that I disliked it I ll admit, I have been guilty of judging people a bit if I see they ve slated a book I really love, and this seems to be a book that has a lot of meaning for many readers but, there you Honestly, I really wanted to fall in love with this I ve long been aware of its status as a cult classic and many people I know, as well as people I don t know but whose taste seems to correspond closely with mine, have professed to adore it So I feel a bit uncomfortable about revealing that I disliked it I ll admit, I have been guilty of judging people a bit if I see they ve slated a book I really love, and this seems to be a book that has a lot of meaning for many readers but, there you go, I can t help it.I DO get a lot of the things people love about the story the hazy, filmic quality of the writing, the sense of indefinable loss and nostalgia for childhood, the effective use of first person plural narrative, the clever structure with the obsessive boys cataloguing every shred of information they c...

    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 else but speculat...

    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 this book was written is brilliant Honestly, every couple of pages I would think to myself When 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 thi...
