Book Review

Thirteen Reasons Why Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher


My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ugh. This book kind of drove me nuts. Now let me say this, the story did have a good message, in the way that it really makes you think of how you treat others and the choices you make that will effect others. I understand that people who commit suicide are usually set in their mind on doing it, but in this book the girl that the story is about was rather annoying. She just wanted so badly for someone to help her, and there were people who wanted to help her but she shut them out. So, I guess I don't feel so sorry for her. Does that make me a mean person??? I don't think anyone really knows the mindset of a person who is going to commit suicide, but this girl just doesn't want her "poor me" to rest. She was so miserable that everyone that hurt her needs to live miserably the rest of their lives. Will she be happy when one of the people on her list commits suicide because they felt bad about driving her to suicide??? I think people should read this book, especially high school kids because it might help them to not be so mean. However, I know high school can be hard for some, I'm not saying I didn't have some hard times in school, but there is life after high school. And, life does get better.

Interesting. I haven't read it, but the mindset you describe definitely sounds like someone suicidal. Even when people are really trying to help them, they don't respond. Anyway, I'm glad I'm not in high school anymore!!!!!!!!! Sounds like you need to read something light and fluffy now.

It sounds like an interesting book I'm putting it on my list of to-reads.
