You can’t stop the future.
You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker–his classmate and crush–who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why.
Clay spends the night crisscrossing his town with Hannah as his guide. He becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.
Back with another book to review.
Some might not agree with what im gonna say, but it stays an opinion of mine after all 🙂 let’s get started!!!!
In here, the story is told from Clay‘s perspective about Hannah‘s life… A girl who committed suicide.
Clay receives cassettes on which Hannah explains her 13 reasons why she killed herself…and if you didn’t guess yet, Clay is one those reasons.
The book is an eye opener, it tries to deliver the message that often, there isn’t one big reason, or a clear cut ones; Often, little things all build up..day after day…one tiny thing after another, until it all blends and creates a huge feeling of hopelessness.
Each one of us have their own struggles and issues, and each one of us deal with those just as differently. some take it lightly, some can’t. Everyone doesn’t cope with situations and problems the same way.
Hannah wanted people to know how things spiral out of control, how small interpersonal interactions can have amazing consequences. Hannah wanted to leave her own answer to why do people commit suicide, and shine the light on the signs to watch out for. These were her reasons to commit suicide, which were enough for her.
The story contains lots of intense emotions, we go through them with Hannah and Clay.
