WOW is all that I can say about this masterpiece of a book... Jeffrey Eugenides is one of the best living authors today. Each book that he writes transcends the previous ones. He writes about average people, yet somehow manages to make their lives extraordinary and miraculous. Taking place in the 1980's, this story revolves around near-college-grad Madeleine and the two main men in her life: Mitchell (an oddball, yet lovable character) and Leonard (even more of an oddball, but handsome and wild). I don't want to tell you any more about them, as it would spoil the book. Read it (or better yet-- listen to it!! Eugenides' books are even better on audio.
