Book review: The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides


The Virgin SuicidesThe Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

How to explain the suicide of 5 teenagers sisters? Lack of serotonin? A family dysfunctional syndrome?

Quite recently, a new scientific approach had ben proposed by analyzing the suicide’s causes through blood samples – LiveScience: Blood Test Predicts Suicide Risk, Study Suggests.

Another great novel by Jeffrey Eugenides.

A splendid movie The Virgin Suicides (1999), directed by Sofia Coppola, was made based on this book, with Kirsten Dunst (as Lux), Josh Hartnett, James Woods.
