Review: Thirteen Reasons Why

Thirteen Reasons Why Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! Just as funny as I thought. To quote Bart Simpson "Making teenagers depressed is like shooting fish in a barrel.". Had this on my list TBR, for some time, but bought it the day I read that it is in development as a TV-series - with Selena Gomez as the dead MC. Hope it will be made, this is still not sure.
Also own the Audible Audio book (rather cheap if you bought ebook at Amazon, Audible being owned by Amazon).
Early on the format of sending 13 tapes as chain-packet-letter-like to 13 persons is said to be anachronistic, as no-one uses tapes anymore and some have problems finding a tape-player, but in this context for this story it is just perfect.
Some things that happen may disturb you, bullying is happening, but that is not the worst, you have been warned, but I will not go into details, as not to spoil the fun of reading this.

Highly recommended book about not growing up due to the usual reasons (suicide, fatal illness, getting killed etc.).
