Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
reviewed by Melanie
I know this book is popular, but after reading it I can't understand why. Thirteen Reasons Why is about a girl, Hannah, who kills herself and sends out 13 tapes to 13 people, explaining how they are all part of the reason she killed herself. Hannah's classmate, Clay, receives the tapes and listens to them, tapes revealing why Hannah blamed him and 12 others.
This book had a great, unique concept that really got me interested. The problem was, I don't think it reached its full potential. The book moved so very slowly, and included so much information unnecessary to the story, it was hard to read through. The characters seemed real, in fact the author explained the characters very well. Still, for the most part, I was pretty bored reading this. I would suggest this book to someone who like books that develop the story slowly. If you like books that get to the point, then you couldn't sit through this.Posted by Arlo at November 19, 2010 03:17 PM
