    I'm one of the very few people who strongly disliked Thirteen Reasons Why, so maybe I should explain to you why. I hate Thirteen Reasons Why. And here?s why. Most of all, it glamorises suicide. I'm putting this at the top because I can't believe I missed it in my original re...

    ?When you mess with one part of a person?s life, you?re messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything.? Sometimes it's hard to see why other people might dislike a book you enjoy, but with Thirteen Reasons Why, I can understand it perfectly. It is tol...

    WARNING: I did not like this book. If you did, and would hate it if someone (me) ranted and bitched about it, then DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW. REVIEW: I don't know why this book is so popular. And I honestly don't know what all the rave is about. I heard so many great things about this...

    I figured this deserved a real review. I'm a bipolar chick. I'm a girl who has struggled with suicidal thoughts since she was nine years old at the very latest. And I just do not buy 13RW's representation of a suicidal girl. The very premise of the book is flawed to me; you don't ki...

    EDIT AND UPDATE, 2017: I read this book back in 2014 when I was a teen and I hated it. I still hate it. My review is getting a lot of traffic atm so I'm just going to do a little update and leave you some links to better reviews that tell how problematic the story is: Tweet thread...

    I REALLY REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK. I had heard very mixed things for some time and it seemed a lot of readers were very divided on this book, but I personally really loved it. I do want to say I don't think this is 100% the best book in the world for depression/suicide, but I do belie...

    Thirteen Reasons Why This Book Sucks: 13. Poorly Sketched Supporting Characters: Hannah, the girl who killed herself, and Clay, the boy she sent her "suicide note" tapes to, were fairly believable and well-drawn individuals. But everyone else in the story seems interchangeable, with...

    eta 2: this is also the perfect book to listen to on audiotape. usually i am annoyed with audiobooks, but i enjoyed listening to this one almost as much as reading it, because i was hearing hannah while driving in my car, much the same way clay was. still love this book and it's boldne...

    I absolutely loved this book. What an eye opener. In Thirteen Reasons Why we listen to audio tapes that was sent to 13 people by Hannah who committed suicide, to explain her reasons why. First I want to mention that to all the reviewers who say that her reasons weren't "good enough"...

    I bought "Thirteen Reasons Why" after hearing so much about it on the internet - and from my 3 sons - and I just knew I had to find out what the hype was all about for myself. Actually I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and found it very compelling so I'm a little apprehensive ab...

    This book was very engrossing and suspenseful, but in the end it just pissed me off. I don't know how to put this in more delicate terms, so if I make my case rather bluntly or insensitively, I do so only because I don't want to tiptoe around what I really feel. Basically, I underst...

    Thirteen Reasons Why This Book Sucks: 13. Poorly Sketched Supporting Characters: Hannah, the girl who killed herself, and Clay, the boy she sent her "suicide note" tapes to, were fairly believable and well-drawn individuals. But everyone else in the story seems interchangeable, with...

    Update 7/10/15: A Conversation From Yesterday... Co-Worker: "My kid just read this book and loved it. You are a reader, right? If you haven't read it, you should read it." Me: "What's it called." CW: "'Thirteen Reasons' or something. It's about suicide." Me: Hmmmm, yeah...

    eta 2: this is also the perfect book to listen to on audiotape. usually i am annoyed with audiobooks, but i enjoyed listening to this one almost as much as reading it, because i was hearing hannah while driving in my car, much the same way clay was. still love this book and it's boldne...

    I absolutely loved this book. What an eye opener. In Thirteen Reasons Why we listen to audio tapes that was sent to 13 people by Hannah who committed suicide, to explain her reasons why. First I want to mention that to all the reviewers who say that her reasons weren't "good enough"...

    When I tried to structure my thoughts to write this review, I discovered that it?s actually very hard to write something about a book I liked but didn?t love. I definitely have no hard feelings towards Thirteen Reasons Why but I also don?t really have anything to rave about. Whic...

    WARNING: I did not like this book. If you did, and would hate it if someone (me) ranted and bitched about it, then DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW. REVIEW: I don't know why this book is so popular. And I honestly don't know what all the rave is about. I heard so many great things about this...

    I figured this deserved a real review. I'm a bipolar chick. I'm a girl who has struggled with suicidal thoughts since she was nine years old at the very latest. And I just do not buy 13RW's representation of a suicidal girl. The very premise of the book is flawed to me; you don't ki...

    EDIT AND UPDATE, 2017: I read this book back in 2014 when I was a teen and I hated it. I still hate it. My review is getting a lot of traffic atm so I'm just going to do a little update and leave you some links to better reviews that tell how problematic the story is: Tweet thread...

    I REALLY REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK. I had heard very mixed things for some time and it seemed a lot of readers were very divided on this book, but I personally really loved it. I do want to say I don't think this is 100% the best book in the world for depression/suicide, but I do belie...

    Lord. This was even worse than I thought it would be. Hannah, I know you've been treated unfairly and you wanted to get back at the people who wronged you. But I was totally dumbfounded by this roundabout way of doing so which actually includes you losing your own life in the proces...

    High school junior (?) Hannah downs a bottle of pills shocking her classmates. Post-mordem a box of cassette tapes is sent around to 13 of peers, all of whom played a part in her ultimate suicide. The summary of this story is just as shitty and ridiculous as the book. There is no discu...

    Lord. This was even worse than I thought it would be. Hannah, I know you've been treated unfairly and you wanted to get back at the people who wronged you. But I was totally dumbfounded by this roundabout way of doing so which actually includes you losing your own life in the proces...

    I want to start off by saying that I'll be talking about both the book and season 1 of the tv show in this review. I also want to state that I watched the show before I read the book. This review will contain unmarked spoilers, but they're pretty minor. I will not be mentioning season ...

    I have seen a lot of mixed reviews on this book. The subject matter - suicide - is controversial. The show they made of this book is controversial. Because of that, I am going to avoid too much commentary on the subject matter and just say that the content of this book is serious and d...

    ?You can't stop the future You can't rewind the past The only way to learn the secret ...is to press play.? Thirteen Reasons Why is a book I?ve been meaning to read for about 5 years. My sister read it and told me I?d love it. I do love books that make me cry and sinc...

    I'm one of the very few people who strongly disliked Thirteen Reasons Why, so maybe I should explain to you why. I hate Thirteen Reasons Why. And here?s why. Most of all, it glamorises suicide. I'm putting this at the top because I can't believe I missed it in my original re...

    THIRTEEN REASONS WHY I HATE THIS BOOK. Note, 6/10/17: Tape #11 has been updated. https://emmareadstoomuch.wordpress.co... Alright. I really thought I wasn't going to review this book. But a status sharing certain anti-anti 13 Reasons Why sentiments (did that make sense?) just...

    oh god, somebody buy this girl some perspective! oh wait, you can't because she's dead. and i, for one, am glad of it because this character would have grown up to be a rotten judgmental schoolmarmy horrorshow of an adult. just horrible. and people love this book like cookies! ba...

    ?When you mess with one part of a person?s life, you?re messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything.? Sometimes it's hard to see why other people might dislike a book you enjoy, but with Thirteen Reasons Why, I can understand it perfectly. It is tol...

    WARNING: I did not like this book. If you did, and would hate it if someone (me) ranted and bitched about it, then DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW. REVIEW: I don't know why this book is so popular. And I honestly don't know what all the rave is about. I heard so many great things about this...

    I figured this deserved a real review. I'm a bipolar chick. I'm a girl who has struggled with suicidal thoughts since she was nine years old at the very latest. And I just do not buy 13RW's representation of a suicidal girl. The very premise of the book is flawed to me; you don't ki...

    EDIT AND UPDATE, 2017: I read this book back in 2014 when I was a teen and I hated it. I still hate it. My review is getting a lot of traffic atm so I'm just going to do a little update and leave you some links to better reviews that tell how problematic the story is: Tweet thread...

    I REALLY REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK. I had heard very mixed things for some time and it seemed a lot of readers were very divided on this book, but I personally really loved it. I do want to say I don't think this is 100% the best book in the world for depression/suicide, but I do belie...

    Thirteen Reasons Why This Book Sucks: 13. Poorly Sketched Supporting Characters: Hannah, the girl who killed herself, and Clay, the boy she sent her "suicide note" tapes to, were fairly believable and well-drawn individuals. But everyone else in the story seems interchangeable, with...

    Update 7/10/15: A Conversation From Yesterday... Co-Worker: "My kid just read this book and loved it. You are a reader, right? If you haven't read it, you should read it." Me: "What's it called." CW: "'Thirteen Reasons' or something. It's about suicide." Me: Hmmmm, yeah...

    eta 2: this is also the perfect book to listen to on audiotape. usually i am annoyed with audiobooks, but i enjoyed listening to this one almost as much as reading it, because i was hearing hannah while driving in my car, much the same way clay was. still love this book and it's boldne...

    I absolutely loved this book. What an eye opener. In Thirteen Reasons Why we listen to audio tapes that was sent to 13 people by Hannah who committed suicide, to explain her reasons why. First I want to mention that to all the reviewers who say that her reasons weren't "good enough"...

    When I tried to structure my thoughts to write this review, I discovered that it?s actually very hard to write something about a book I liked but didn?t love. I definitely have no hard feelings towards Thirteen Reasons Why but I also don?t really have anything to rave about. Whic...

    ******* (edited on 8/15/17 to add:) My face, when everyone keeps coming on my review to tell me that my feelings about this book are "wrong." A review is simply my opinion. I'm entitled to mine and you're entitled to yours and they don't affect one another in any way. ***...

    I bought "Thirteen Reasons Why" after hearing so much about it on the internet - and from my 3 sons - and I just knew I had to find out what the hype was all about for myself. Actually I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and found it very compelling so I'm a little apprehensive ab...

    Things that happened to make Hannah Baker kill herself: 1.) Someone made up a rumour that she let a boy put his hands under her shirt in a park. REPUTATION RUINED. 2.) Someone was taking pictures of her through her bedroom window and she reacted by posing with a friend as though th...

    This book was very engrossing and suspenseful, but in the end it just pissed me off. I don't know how to put this in more delicate terms, so if I make my case rather bluntly or insensitively, I do so only because I don't want to tiptoe around what I really feel. Basically, I underst...
