Angela said:
The Virgin Suicides is a tale of the struggle to understand tragedy in the context of adolescence. It is written in a collective narrative and captures both the obsession of a group of teenage boys and the mystery of five sisters' lives and deaths. Highly engaging but definitely for mature readers.

I ditto the mature reader warning of Angela’s. A quick read, The Virgin Suicides is a beautifully written book about a band of boys and their obsession with the 5 sisters who live across the street. Told in past tense it’s a remebrance of one year in their lives that saw 5 suicides. It gives some insight to the sister’s lives, but through clues that this group of boys sees from across the street, at a party, and what they hear over phone calls. I wouldn’t say that this is a must read, but I think that many people may find it a compelling read.
