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. Less
Can you guess why I picked up this book? If you said because of the show, you are correct.
I watched the show in less than two days. I fell in love with the story. Not even a week later, I had the book in my hands.
It took me three days to read Thirteen Reasons Why. I can honestly say I liked the show better. Shocker, I know.
This was a great book, don’t get me wrong. I just feel like the show took it to a deeper level and went more in depth with everything.
I feel like Clay is more annoying in the book. Sorry Clay fans. He just seemed a little lost to me throughout the book.
I don’t know. I feel like if I read the book first, I’d feel differently.
It was still a wonderful read though!
