Jeffrey Eugenides is a masterful story teller whose prose flows naturally and in an easy-to-realate-to way. His imagery and subtle foreshadowing make the plot unfold like it is happening to you right now. This story tells about the suicides of four sisters from the point of view of the neighbor boy. Another reviewer said the girls from the book will stay with you long after you've finished it. I have to say I wholeheartedly agree. A great book for those who love to think, but don't need answers.
