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 to find a strange package with his name on it. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker – his classmate and first love – who committed suicide two weeks earlier.

Hannah’s voice explains there are thirteen reasons why she killed herself. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why.

All through the night, Clay keeps listening – and what he discovers changes his life… forever.

REVIEW

I had high expectation from this book because the plot of the book was so good. But i was quite dissapointed when i finished this book. alright i know probably she was going through a difficult phrase in her life but that didnt mean she had to take her life.

The reasons of which she commited suicide was not strong….she could have distance herself from the people who were destroying her mental peace but SHE DIDNT DO THAT. She mixed more with them and got into more troubles.

And more the character formation was not quite good and it didnt enhace with the story developing. I wish the story and the ending to be more compact and strong but as the book progressed the weaker the plot and the story got.

Moreover there were so many character in the story that i couldnt figure out in my mind since they were developing so poorly!
