Yes I would recommend this audiobook because it's a great story and the narrator was excellent.
The sadness of three girls committing suicide
No this was this first so can't compare
Made me sad in parts
Great read. Give it a try
First off, some reviews here said the narrator is awful. I don't agree. I think he did a great job. He didn't sound like he's reading, and he conveyed the characters well.
3.5 stars. Interesting concept. I couldn't help being compelled by these young girls committing suicide...why? how? when? where? ...Interesting also is the way the story is told – from the point of view of a neighborhood boy obsessed with the girls. The girls themselves were mysterious and intriguing. But the book has negatives, mainly that there were many times that the author put in far more detail than necessary, such as delving deep into minor characters who have no relevance to the story. I like detail, but much of it was so superfluous that it annoyed me. Sometimes the author would wax poetic, trying to sound profound and deep, but really was just spouting a bunch of b.s. Overall I liked the book, but I didn't love it. It held my attention, and it's worth the read. But not a book I'll gush about to others. His book Middlesex was much better.
Yes, I love the use of the first person plural narration. It is inclusive and allows the listener to become engrossed in the story.
Jeffrey Eugenides has a way with words that draws you in and holds you under water. You know what is going to happen in this story from the beginning, making this tale less about what happens and more about who it happens to.
I can't think of anyone.
Not sure yet.
His performance was fine.
The description of the first suicide attempt in the bathtub. It was very creepy.
I know this book is a black comedy, but it was too morbid for me. I don't expect you to use this review.
