“Clay Jensen doesn’t want anything to do with the tapes Hannah Baker made. Hannah is dead. her secrets should be buried with her. Then Hannah’s voice tells Clay that his name is one her tapes- and that he is, in some way, responsible for her death.
All through the night, Clay keeps listening. He follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his small town …
… and what he discovers changes his life forever”.
We follow Clay Jensen during the book as soon as he takes Hannah’s tapes and listen to them. Hannah had already committed suicide and at first he didn’t get why he has to listen to them. The tapes contained every single thing that has affected Hannah in her life that led in the end to her suicide. Every person that touched Hannah’s in a negative way is in a way responsible and his story is recorded on the tapes and when they finish listening they pass them to the next person.
This book is the debut novel of Jay Asher. I think he did a great in his writing. Suicide is not an easy subject to talk about and Asher did a good job in portraying it and sending the message to people. The book will let you think that every action you’re making can affect your life or people’s life in a way you can’t think of. You can think that this thing will not affect but nobody can know what the other is thinking.
Suicide is definitely not an excuse to end the life. People should stop criticizing other people’s life and starting to help them in their struggle ,,, Life is not easy and it has its ups and downs all the time but at the end of the day we should be surrounded by people that are willing to help us at any moment and that will be there for us. We can try to be attentive and see if anybody needs a hand or something; true, we can’t be psychic but at least if we do a little act of charity and help we could be saving someone’s life without even knowing.
