Book Review: Th1rteen R3asons Why?

13 Jun

This book was introduced to me by two YouTube girls. They were doing a video on some of their favourite books, and as they described each of them, I only find this very one deeply hitched in my mind.

This is a library book in hardcover.

The story plot is really intriguing! And may I say, this is my very first book that caused me to shift over to a different genre other than romance- CRIME/MYSTERY!

Th1rteen R3asons Why? is about a SUICIDE.

A girl in a new place. A new beginning? WRONG. She faced mental torture. Why? You have to read this book to find out! 😀

In this book, the reader is the main character in the story. The reader/he is one of the 13 reasons why the girl killed herself. So if the reader/he is one of the 13 reasons, then who are the other 12 reasons why she killed herself?

This book brings you on a journey to find out who else caused the indirect death of the girl. The reader/he has to listen cassette tape recordings of the death girl telling her story of WHY SHE DECIDED TO TAKE AWAY HER LIFE!

Just imagine: A classmate in your school just committed suicide, and you are listening to tape recordings of her!? Scary? Sad? Angry? You decide.

Personally, I was very interested in knowing who are the 13 horrible people that forced a girl into suicide. Then after the entire book, I realized that it was partly the dead girl’s fault as well.

I mean, why take away your own young life just because of some obstacles in your teens? There are so many people who cares about you. There’s no need to be so pessimistic about it. Whatever it is, I am sure there is someone out that you can talk to. SOMEONE.

For those you have read the book, you will probably know who I am referring to when I say SOMEONE. (Hint: One of the 13 people that caused her death)

This book is different from other books because I have never read any books that is written in such a refreshing way. About 70-80% of the book is based on tape recordings the main character has to listen to. So basically, me, as a reader can understand, 1st hand, why the girl killed herself.

Pretty interesting, huh?

I spend my last school semester reading this when I was bored, in the train, or just don’t feel like studying.

If you have read this book, do share your thoughts with me! I would love to read them and exchange thoughts!

Until next time,

see you guys again! ❤
