Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher

Thirteen Reasons WhyTitle: The 13 Reasons Why
Author: Jay Asher
Pages: 288 pages
Publisher: Razorbill

Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads


Jay Asher s brilliant first novel is a moving, highly original story that focuses on a set of audiotapes made by a girl before she committed suicide, and which explain to 13 people the reasons why she decided to end her life. Told in a highly effective duel narrative -- alternating between the girl s voice and the thoughts of a boy who is listening -- this honest, poignant story reveals how other people's actions shape, and by extension can ruin, an individual's faith in people. Intensely powerful and painfully real, Thirteen Reasons Why reveals how brutal high school can be, the consequences of spreading rumors, and the lasting effects of suicide on those left behind



After reading this. All i could think was...

Okay? thats a bit selfish? i think Hannah is...self absurd? Self centered? I totally think her reasons are too shallow. Except of course for the last 3 ones.

But she wants others to reach for her. Yet she's the one shoving them off. How will they know if you really want them to help you if you wont even give them their first step?

I just don't like this story that much. Sure it shows how a person turns to be a suicidal. And of course this story just shows that it has a lot of reasons and then feeling empty and alone And feeling left out.

But i just think that the most of reasons are way too shallow.
