For still, the question remains - why did all five of the Lisbon girls take their own lives? This hypnotic and unforgettable novel treats adolescent love and death with haunting sensitivity and dark humour, and creates a coming-of-age story unlike any of our time.

This book is beautifully written and I loved the fact that you couldn't really understand the Lisbon girls any better than the narrator because how much can we ever truly know or understand about the innermost feelings of others?

On the other hand I had a hard time with the misogyny in the book and the frequent dehumanization of the girls through the lens of the boys' perceptions of them. I'm glad I read it and I really loved the style and the dreamy quality of the writing but it was too frustrating a read to rate it any higher.

I absolutely love gothic and mildly depressing stories which are poetic but go nearly nowhere. Coming of age tales where the ending could be anything?

Love it. Tragedy on a Shakespearean level where barely anyone is left breathing at the end of the tale? Adore it. I read this book at least once a year and I haven't gotten tired of it.

It's beautifully written, but it's a short novel, and a simple tale. I became obsessed with The Virgin Suicides when I saw the commercial for the movie on television at age 10 or I begged my parents to let me see it. They forbid it. I wasn't able to watch it until I was fully grown and married, I read the book afterward. I did have severe depression and my parents kept watch over me much like the parents in the story.

I was definitely the Lux type as a teenager and luckily I grew out of it.

Since I see the parallels in my past reflected in the story, when I read it I feel like the sister who lived. Eugenides writes the girls so realistically that I can't help but feel so connected to them, like they are my family. I grieve for them at the end of the book after each reading.

Especially since I see so many teen girls damaging themselves the same way the sisters did, over bullying in school or other problems. This book definitely shows how suicide can rip families apart.

I read somewhere that suicide affects a family for 10 generations. That's a long time, and I do believe its true. I don't feel this is a YA book, though I've seen it classified as one.

It's far too dark, and while condemning suicide, Eugenides simultaneously glorifies it. Yes, the survivor's hearts were broken. But more is made of the fact that the sisters will be young and beautiful in their memories forever. How irresistible for a young girl is that?The Pearl that Broke Its Shell.
