The Virgin Suicides – Jeffrey Eugenides

The Virgin Suicides - Jeffrey Eugenides

The Virgin Suicides - Jeffrey Eugenides

Who bought it: Me.

What is it: It’s about five sisters who commit mass suicide. Ooh. What drove them to do that?

When: June 4, 2011

Where: Book Sale – SM Clark

Why: I loved the film adaptation. There’s this disquieting atmosphere, and the cinematography is just awesome. I have always been curious how the story of the five sisters was weaved into words, but I never had the budget to buy it. You see, at regular book stores, TV/movie tie-ins are always more expensive than the others. And finally, I got myself a second-hand!

How much: Php 75.00
