You know, "The virgin suicides" is in some way just like a suicide manual. Just think about it.
The 5 sisters kill themselves in 6 different ways.
The 1st one 1st tries to cut her wrists but survives, then later jumps out of her window and successfully kills herself.
Among the remaining 4, 1 commits suicide by hanging, 1 takes an overdose of sleeping pills, 1 sticks her head in the oven* and 1 leaves the car running in a closed garage and dies from the gas.
So many options. So many suggestions. Don't you think?
*: this may be called the Sylvia Plath method.
