A penny for my thought (Thirteen Reasons Why)

 

 

   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 Baker—his classmate and crush—who 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.

Two weeks ago I heard of this book on WWW Wednesday an weekly event by MizB from Should Be Reading. I found it really interesting so I went to the library and they didn’t have it, the library in my neighborhood never have the books I’m looking for. So I went to the mall and bought the book, this was Sunday afternoon and by Monday I finish read the book.

I can say this book was hauntingly beautiful, well written which is true and who have read the book knows this and who haven’t know you know. But I’m going to talk about how I felt reading the book.

While reading I found myself very upset mad, and irritated I can’t say which part of the book I felt this way. I had to put the book down and walk around my room to calm down – I’m very dramatic – I was made at the author Jay Asher. How dare he writes a book about a girl committing suicide and blaming people for it. But by the end of the book I realized, that it’s more that a book about suicide, it’s about bullying, snowball effects, speaking up, opening up and taking chances or not taking chances.

I did cry while reading the book, but I didn’t know I was crying I just felt the tears running down my face. I do remember the part I cried – NO SPOILERS – when Hanna gave up. It made me remember the times when I thought about giving up, I had people who want the best for me. It made me thought what would have happened or what would I have done if I didn’t them cheering for me.

 Yes, I thought about what would happen if I die, not if I commit suicide but I have thought about that too. Haven’t we all? There’s a line in the book that explains this: “Sometimes we have thoughts that even we don’t understand. Thoughts that aren’t even true – that aren’t really how we feel – but they’re running through our heads anyway because they’re interesting to think about.”

Everyone teenager should read this book, it will make you think about the things you do and say. Everything we do and say have a snowball effect and you don’t want to be a contributing factor to someone sadness.

Have you read the book, what did you think of it and how did it affect you?

Here are my answers:

What are you currently reading?
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. I read a review that its going to be next big thing so I had to read it, I haven’t gotten that far but so far I like it. Also I’m rereading The Maze Runner by James Dashner.

What do you recently finish reading?
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.  Set over the course of one school year, the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. I’m a sucker for a love story and Eleanor and Park had me in tears.

What do you think you are going to read next?
The Giver by Lois Lowry I still haven’t read it as yet, I also want to read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and Dark Places Gillian Flynn. I’ll read the first one I get my hand on.
