5.0 out of 5 stars The Dying Daughters
By Singh, R. on 14 October 2021
Long time ago, perhaps, in 2015 or 2016, I had chanced upon this book but I never got around to reading it because of its exorbitant price. After 5-6 years, I found a deal and stole it. After having read it, I am glad I didn't read it back then. I don't think the younger reader in me would have been able to appreciate the book as much as I do now. To put it shortly, it was a heartbreaking read. It is the tale of a neighbourhood, of people trying to tolerate each other's families and their peculiarities. Particularly, a house in the neighbourhood that is festered with a wound where the Lisbons' daughters are committing suicide one after another. The story is narrated by a male friend/neighbour of the girls who has been witness to the short life of the girls, their family and the haunting memory of their disappearance into death. I loved the writing, the haunting, gothic images the author has tried to construct through his prose. It reminded me of Shirley Jackson's WHALITC, which I have loved with all my heart. What I found special about the book was the element of mystery that persisted even after the book was over. Ideally, I should have felt frustrated but somehow, it all fell in place. The questions, the various debates, the underlying emotions and the many hidden mysteries of the book; they all came together to give the novel the shape it has. I think that is some great skill of storytelling and it should be appreciated. I can't wait to watch the film adaptation of the book and to read more by the author!

4.0 out of 5 stars very good, definitely recommend
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 May 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.
