Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher



Title: Thirteen Reasons Why

Author: Jay Asher

Published: New York : Razorbill, 2007

Pages: 288

Snippet: "You can't stop the future,
You can't rewind the past,
The only way to learn the secret
...is to press play."

Summary: When High School student Clay Jenkins receives a
box in the mail containing thirteen casette tapes recorded by
his classmate Hannah, who committed suicide, he spends a
bewildering and heartbreaking night crisscrossing their town,
listening to Hannah's voice recounting the events leading up
to her death.

Review: This is the first re-read for me for two years now. I'm proud of my long streak of not re-reading a book. But I decided that I would like to re read Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher and now I am here to review it.

The first time I read Thirteen Reasons Why I thought it was a pretty good read. The second time round I thought it was alright but I didn't enjoy it as much as the first.

I remembered most of the book because it is indeed quite a memorable book. I thought that her reasons were alright but I just don't think they would lead a person to commit suicide.

I did enjoy re-reading it though.

None of the characters really stood out to me. I quite liked Clay and Skye though. I felt like while the story was told from Hannah's perspective we really didn't get to know much about her at all. Which was kind of disappointing because I would've liked to know more about her.

Overall, Thirteen Reasons Why is one of those books that you should definitely read at least once. But if you ever see it, definitely check it out.
