7 tapes. 13 reasons. 13 people that are all conected in one way. they all had something to do with the death of hannah baker. but there's a twist she killed herself. and the reason is one these tapes. the reason is those 13 people.
i cried in this book many times. but i loved every second of it. i could picture myself in the book. it was so well written that it felt like i was watching a movie rather than reading a book. i highly suggest this book!
I just finishing reading this book in two days and for me thats something. This book is about a girl (hannah baker) who killed herself and she made 7 tapes to 13 students in her high school before she did. Each tape side was dedicated to one person that made her life in high school harder then she can imagine. Clay is one of the people that has a tape and it is his turn to listen to them. The author made you feel that you are pushing play and stop with clay. It is a great book for teens and adults that forgot how it's like in high school. Great read!
This book made me feel like I knew the girl who was making the tapes. Ita bout a girl who commited suicide and left 13 tapes behind for people to listen to. It tells them how they all relate to her life and to her killing herself. I loved this book a lot.
Wow. I literally just finished this book and reading Hannah Baker's last spoken words has given me goose bumps, although I know she isn't real. In this heart breaking story about a high school kid who opens his door one evening to find a package addressed to him and inside finds seven audio tapes, each with a different story on them spoke by Hannah Baker, a girl who the narrator had been crushing on until she committed suicide only a while before the tapes arrived.
As he listens, he learns that the people who's stories are on the tapes are the 13 reasons why Hannah killed herself and, as the novel goes on, he begins to worry about why it is that he has made it onto these tapes. After the final word is spoken, he has his time to reflect and change the future.
This powerful novel discusses lost and despair as well as the fact that one cannot change the past. Beautifully written with a voice that speaks out from the pages, "Th1rteen R3asons Why" is an amazing novel.
"You can't stop the future You can't rewind the past The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play."

Hannah Baker is dead. All Clay knows is that she took pills. When a mysterious package arrives at his house he doesn't know what to make of it. There are seven cassettes inside it, with a number written in blue nail polish on each side, except for the last, it was one sided. Thirteen sides, thirteen connections that all helped lead to her suicide. When Clay starts listening he doesn't know what's going on. These are all people who hurt her in some way, all he did was have a crush on her. As Clay listens he learns more about Hannah and himself.
I heard so many good things about this book that once i got home from the book store (buying it) i wanted to read the first few pages and see if it measured up to how good i thought it'd be. Well, after i started reading i couldn't stop. This book was so amazing. The characters were very well developed, and the plot was very understandable and easy to follow. This book nearly brought me to tears.
What do you do when you find out that you caused someone to commit suicide? Theres not much that Clay can do when he finds a box of tapes sitting in front of his door. He is even excited since there is no return address. However, not only does the first tape reveal his crush Hannah talking, who had killed herself, but he is stopped cold when he hears her say
I hope youre ready, because Im about to tell you the story of my life. More specifically, why my life ended. And if youre listening to these tapes, youre one of the reasons why.
What else can he do but to continue to listen to the thirteen tapes? He follows her story through the town and learns not only Hannahs story, but his part in it as well.
As you might have guessed already, I hardly have the words to describe this novel. Jay Asher presents Hannahs story in a clear, raw form, and doesnt shy away from what her story is all about: suicide. The reader is brought face to face with the knowledge that even the littlest of things can affect others immensely. I absolutely loved this novel, and it has now become my number one favorite.
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Bakerhis classmate and crushwho committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list. Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers.
Incredible. It was so unique and creative and just wonderful. I absolutely loved this book. I like that it was like reading from two differnt peoples perspectives at once. Clay Jensen was the perfect person to view in their perspective. Hannah Baker was so different. When I closed the book and set it down I couldn't help but to get teary eyed. I didn't want it to end. I wanted to know what Clay would react to Bryce and what he would say to the others and I wanted to know if Skye was really suicidal as I was getting from the end of the book and if Clay really did help her or if it was to late. This book will having me looking at my school mates for warnings it will have me aware of suicidals in the future. I really loved this book and highly recommed it to other teens.
A girl, Hannah, who's just died has sent about 13 tapes, telling the story which provoked her suicide.
Clay Jenson, Hannah's crush, recieves the tapes and spends one night listening to her heart-wrenching story. A story that tells all the reasons why she chose to die. And each of the tapes are about one of the people which provoked her suicide. And Clay is on one of those tapes.
This novel shows how even small incidents can impact someones' life drastically. And it also shows an accurate potrayl of suicide.
I'd recommend this to everyone as everyone can relate to it and be touched by the story.
The story of Hannah Baker is told in this brilliant first novel by Jay Asher. Through a series of cassette tapes (who even uses those anymore?) the story of Hannah's suicide is told to the boy who misses her most, Clay.
This book goes through thirteen stories about thirteen different people that Hannah encountered in her life, and the reasons why they impacted her. It really opens up your eyes, showing you how one person and one single moment of the day can really affect someone else. The effects we have on people are hardly realized, but Asher does a fantastic job of portraying the high school experience and the crazy things that can happen, through the eyes of a girl who took drastic measures for not so drastic reasons. Definitely a perfect read for someone who is going through high school drama.
This book was really good. Very different from the rest but still good. A girl has commited suicide, and she sent around a bunch of tapes to people who were kind of to blame for her death. This story is from the point of view of one of the recipiants of the tapes. This person, this boy didn't do anything wrong though. He liked her. He never betrayted her, but listening to these tapes made him feel guilty that he didn't try harder to stop her and save her.
