"It's only words, and words are all I have, to take your heart away." —Bee Gees
I really like Eugenides' writing, and I could relate to this story the most compared to Middlesex and The Virgin Suicides. But I wish the book was shorter, a little less soul searching and a little more English literature. I felt the marriage plot theme was a bit sidelined by the coming of age theme with the characters trying to find themselves.
