Conhecimento Comum



The Virgin Suicides em Someone explain it to me... (Julho 2013)


I pretty much gobbled this book. I found the descriptions and discussion of manic-depressive illness fascinating and was curious about Mitchell's religious pursuits (especially in India). The literary references struck a chord and I enjoyed the story. Not having read Middlesex, I can't compare it but I will definitely add it my list. Eugenides is a phenomenal researcher and a talented writer.

Reads a lot like an overly intense and dramatized documentary, but still interesting and very well written. At times it seemed hard to empathize with the entire situation since the parents and the girls were all such insane/inexplicable people. Even if this was the goal that was emphasized by the perspective the book took, it was slightly frustrating...

Simply one of the greatest books I have ever read, and a deserving winner of the Pullitzer. Stunning.

Most of my theories on the world change every few years. New evidence, new voices in the mix, new ways of thinking tend to do that to a person. But my theory that every book written in the third-person plural is a masterpiece was formed when I read The Virgin Suicides back in my now-distant teens, and it remains unchallenged.
