Produktbeskrivning

Från fliken på insidan

Previously adapted into a critically acclaimed film by Sofia Coppola starring Kirsten Dunst, this is the story of the five Lisbon sisters - beautiful, eccentric, and obsessively watched by the entire neighbourhood.

The boys that once loved them from afar are now grown men, determined to understand a tragedy that has always defied explanation. For still, the question remains - why did all five of the Lisbon girls take their own lives?

This hypnotic and unforgettable novel treats adolescent love and death with haunting sensitivity and dark humour, and creates a coming-of-age story unlike any of our time.

3,0 av 5 stjärnor Lite trasig
Av natalie på 29 april 2021
Produkten är väl bra på insidan och allt men på baksidan är den sönderiven:/ har läst mycket på amazon att böckerna kommer sönder, tänk på det när ni beställer.

4,0 av 5 stjärnor very good, definitely recommend
Granskad i Storbritannien den 24 maj 2021
this book is so bad but so good, the biggest oxymoron. the only reason it is bad is because it’s written to be ‘bad’. it’s in the perspective of teenage boys and i think it captures the sexualisation of young girls and how, due to how they present themselves, their many obvious problems are overlooked until the end.

SPOILERS (maybe)

many say that the ending is unnecessary and that it was crude for the girls to do such a traumatic and vexatious thing to the boys but i feel it was a necessity to the story. it showed us how the young males in the story were so naive and in many ways selfish; that they couldn’t see how grief-stricken and woebegone the girls were after Cecilias death and instead focused on there own sexual and fanatical needs. however you may only see this once you interpret it and that is one of the many reasons this book is amazing.
