This book worked for me on so many different fronts. The author is a year or two older than me, and therefore this teenage rites of passage book resonates right down to the heart wrenching songs of the 70's which comforted me slightly as I strove to ...more

Although this book is almost a generation old, it is still just as relevant now as it was then.

It talks about class, the British way of life, how we put far too much emphasis on materialism in our value calculations and how money appears to be able t

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
"


Sometimes, you just know when you have found a truly great novelist and Jeffrey Eugenides is one such novelist. I initially rated this book four stars but no, it deserves a five star rating . And where have I been since 1999? On some desert island..." Read more of this review »

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
"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 n..." Read more of this review »
Huw Rhys and 4 other people liked Nicola's review of The Virgin Suicides:
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
"The Virgin Suicides is one of those books that makes me remember why I love literary fiction. The story is very slight -- five beautiful, blonde sisters in suburban USA commit suicide -- but the joy is in the way it's told.

A.S.J. Tessimond
“He is in love with the land that is always over

The next hill and the next, with the bird that is never,

Caught, with the room beyond the looking glass.

He likes the half-hid, the half-heard, the half-lit,

The man in the fog, the road without an ending …”
A.S.J. Tessimond, The Collected Poems of A.S.J. Tessimond

Tracey Thorn
“Too embarrassed even to try as long as everyone was looking at me, I made what was probably a fairly unique request. ‘Um, I’ll have a go. But I can’t do it if you’re all looking at me. Can I go inside the wardrobe and sing from there?’ The others looked at me strangely, possibly beginning to worry about the apparent absence of any stage personality in this girl they had just recruited, but to their credit they agreed, without killing themselves laughing, and so in I went. From inside my hidey-hole I sang David Bowie’s ‘Rebel Rebel’. I emerged to a very positive response, the others all declaring that I sounded like Siouxsie Sioux – I was trying very hard to – and while I was quite pleased with myself, I wasn’t sure that I would be able to do it in front of an audience. We could hardly take the wardrobe around with us.”
Tracey Thorn, Bedsit Disco Queen: How I Grew Up and Tried to Be a Pop Star

Steven Weinberg
“One of the great achievements of science has been, if not to make it impossible for intelligent people to be religious, then at least to make it possible for them not to be religious. We should not retreat from this accomplishment.”
