She was a female high school student who commits suicide, leaving behind recorded tapes that implicated twelve people as the thirteen reasons why. Clay Jensen is the narrator of the novel. He is a shy high school student through whom Hannah's tapes are revealed in the novel. He is the subject of the ninth tape, on which Hannah clarifies that he was always kind to her and that he does not deserve to be on her list. Clay is the only person on the tapes who is not directly blamed as a reason for Hannah's death.
He also knows that Justin and Hannah did more than just kiss — or did they? According to the tapes, the rumors were false, spread by a boastful Justin. To Justin, the rumors meant nothing. But for Hannah, a newcomer, those rumors were the beginning of a reputation that would be impossible to shake. Clay is hooked on Hannah's story, but he doesn't want to keep listening in the garage where his family could walk in at any time.
Under the pretense of helping his friend Tony start his less-than-reliable Mustang, he steals Tony's Walkman. Hannah has also left Clay a map, starred with significant locations that she will mention throughout the tapes.
Clay walks to the first location while listening to the next tape. The first star on the map is Hannah's old house, now the home of an elderly man who was involved in a serious car accident earlier that year in which a high school student from Clay's school was killed. While Alex may have meant it as a twisted compliment, it only served to spiral Hannah's reputation even lower.
Boys now felt that they had the right to touch her whenever they felt like it. Clay remembers the girl who was voted Best Lips. He was mesmerized by them and even made out with her — all because of the list. The third name is Jessica Davis, another newcomer who was friendly with Hannah until more false rumors this time about Hannah and Alex caused Alex and Jessica to break up. At the location of the third star a coffee shop , Jessica scratched Hannah's face, leaving behind a fingernail and a crescent-shaped scar.
The fourth name is Tyler Down, a peeping Tom who waited, armed with a camera, outside Hannah's window. Hannah invited Courtney Crimsen fifth name over to help her catch the crook. Courtney cared more about using Hannah than she did about being friends. Courtney got Hannah to drive her to a party, then ditched her. And at that party, Courtney started new rumors about Hannah. On the bus ride to Tyler's house fourth star , Clay runs into Skye Miller — his middle school crush.
Over the past few years, she has isolated herself from the world, and Clay wonders why, but he gets off the bus without really talking to her. When he reaches the house, Tyler's window is broken and duct-taped, and Marcus Cooley, Alex's friend, is there with a rock.
Clay refuses to throw it. Marcus asked Hannah for a date at Rosie's next star , then almost stood her up. When he finally arrived, he groped her, even after she asked him to stop. The seventh tape is the story of how Zach Dempsey stole notes of encouragement from Hannah during their peer communications class, and how the class refused to help when Hannah made an anonymous comment about considering suicide. The eighth story is about Ryan Shaver, who stole one of Hannah's poems and exposed it to public ridicule.
Clay listens and continues to travel to each starred location — now with Tony's help. Tony knows that Clay stole his Walkman, because Tony is the one Hannah asked to make the tapes public if her instructions weren't followed. Clay thinks back to the times he was too afraid to ask Hannah out, and wonders if things would have been different if he'd only had the courage to speak to her. The ninth story is Clay's.
Right away, Hannah admits that Clay doesn't belong on the list, that he didn't do anything wrong. She just wants him to hear her reasons and to know why she committed suicide. Hannah talks about how much she liked him and about the party where they lay on a bed and kissed and how she pushed Clay away because she was so afraid of getting hurt. The 10th story is about Justin again. Hannah hid in the closet. Jessica was so drunk that she passed out before anything could happen.
Justin left, but then reluctantly allowed his friend, Bryce Walker, to go into the room and rape Jessica. Hannah did nothing to stop it.
When Hannah wandered back into the party, she was visibly shaken. Cheerleader Jenny Kurtz 11th story offered to drive her home. It was raining, and Jenny knocked over a stop sign.
Hannah tried to convince her not to drive the rest of the way home and to report the downed sign. But Jenny refused. Hannah walked to a nearby gas station to call the police, but by the time she got there, it was too late — an accident had already occurred on the corner that was missing a stop sign.
It was the accident involving the elderly man who lived in Hannah's old house. The 12th story belongs to Bryce Walker. Hannah, spiraling fast, was determined to make some bad choices. At an after party, Bryce asked Hannah to join him and Courtney in a hot tub — in their underwear.
Courtney left, and Bryce started groping Hannah. She didn't resist. He had sex with her. On the tapes, Hannah says that she was finally giving in to her reputation and that she was using Bryce to let go of herself.
The last tape, the 13th story, is about the school guidance counselor, Mr. Already determined to commit suicide, Hannah hopes he can talk her out of it.
But he fails to get Hannah to open up to him, and she leaves. He doesn't follow. It's now early morning, and Clay is finally done listening to the tapes.
And, just like in the novel, they can build on each other in unexpected ways. The book was a good read, with the two different, alternating viewpoints helping to see the story in two different ways. And, despite the fact that Clay is in fact listening to the tapes, meaning we all know how it ends up, there's still an element of hope throughout the story that gets whittled away with each tape.
This is how it feels to be depressed. I'll end this review with an excerpt from a fanfiction that I wrote:. Dark, yes, but still! Suspenseful and addictive, I promise this is a book you will not want to put down. This novel is famous because of the tv series made based on this book, but I recommend actually reading it; the pages and the feeling of the book in your hands will give it a whole other feel. This book was about a girl in high school, Hannah Baker, who tried to commit suicide and left tapes as for reasons why, hence the name 13 reasons why.
A boy named Clay Jensen receives the tapes and listens to them. I watched the show first and then wanted to read the book. And with all honesty this book looks upon many important issues in today's society, but I really didn't love it as much as the show. Many things that Hannah goes through are easily relatable, which is the part I liked about the book.
Many characters in the book were, in my opinion, very well thought out. I would recommend this book to an older audience, teenagers aged I would give this book a 3. I listened to the audiobook in one day whilst dealing with an extended layover. Boy, was it emotionally draining.
I highly recommend listening to this book in audiobook format. It is, perhaps, one of the most appropriate books for an audiobook. It adds a layer of immersion that cannot be replicated through reading it on pages. This book is intense. It's almost unfortunate that it keeps you turning pages long into the night, as this is not subject matter that should be binged.
It's thought provoking. Similar to the 'Series of Unfortunate Events' it maintains that there is no happy ending, but gives you just enough hope to keep reading. I think there are two ways to look at this book.
One, from the perspective that the 13 tapes are tapes of blame. Tapes that led Hannah to go through with it. The other perspective is to look at the tapes not as blame, but as 13 missed opportunities.
Opportunities to do better. To say hi. To smile. To stand up to a friend mistreating someone. It is the latter perspective that I think makes this book an important read for adolescents and adults alike. According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.
Yellow, black. Ooh, black and yellow! Let's shake it up a little. Breakfast is ready! Hang on a second.
I'll pick you up. Looking sharp. Use the stairs. Your father paid good money for those. I'm excited. Here's the graduate. We're very proud of you, son. A perfect report card, all B's.
Very proud. I got a thing going here. That's me! We'll be in row , Barry, I told you, stop flying in the house!
Special day, graduation. Never thought I'd make it. Of course you would.
Everyone answers yes to that question before they think it all the way through. For example, what if other people could hear your thoughts You'll do that right? All of you? You'll fill in the gaps? Because every story I'm telling leaves so many unanswered questions. More specifically, why my life ended. And if you're listening to these tapes, you're one of the reasons why. You don't know what went on in the rest of my life. At home.
Even at school.
You don't know what goes on in any-one's life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person's life, you're not messing with just that part. Unfortunatly, you can't be that precise and seletive. When you mess with one part of a person's life, you're messng with their entire life. Side A.
