Book Review: 13 Reasons why by Jay Asher

411MJMpTseL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_(As always spoilers bellow for the book in question)

This book was recommend to me by a now ex-friend years ago and I stuck it on my to read list but never actually got around to reading it this year. To summarize the plot for you it’s about a girl named Hannah Baker who commits suicide and leaves behind a set of tapes with the 13 reasons why she ended her own life. Each person has to listen to all 13 tapes to know why they’re on it and then each person has to give the tapes on to the next person on the list, because if they don’t then everyone will know what they did (and some of them did some really bad stuff only Hannah knew about.)

This book drags out quite a bit, sometimes Hannah will talk about someone for a long time without mentioning a name which irritated me a little due to the amount of characters there were I was often getting people mixed up. The story is told from the point of view of Clay, Hannah’s first love and one of her 13 reasons. I found him to be an okay character, he over reacted a little bit at times to certain things I thought but it was easy to ignore.

This book is overall a good read, it drags out a bit and is a bit on the dark side but still very good.  I also really enjoyed the ending a lot. It kind of put a happy turn on such a deep depressing book.

Thanks for reading and don’t forget to like, follow and comment <3
