A flood of emotions rushes into me. Pain and anger. Sadness and pity. But most surprising of all, hope.
ABOUT THE BOOK: I think you must have gotten to know a lot about the book after seeing the trailer. Just in case you haven’t seen the trailer yet, this book is about a new girl in town named Hannah. In the start, everything seemed cool but eventually she faces a lot of troubles. She commits suicide and records tapes telling why she committed suicide. These tapes are sent to 13 people who were the reasons of Hannah’s death, and they are supposed to read it and give it to the next person in the list. Through the tapes we get to know more about Hannah Baker and the 13 Reasons why she committed suicide.
My Views: I read this book 2 years ago and was obsessed with it for a long long time and was really happy when I realised that it is turning into a Netflix Show. I had loved the book. It was so unique and heart touching. The writing was modest and the storyline seemed so real and nice. The author kept the pace in check and every single chapter of the book had left me awestruck. I had felt so many nuances of emotions and feelings while reading this book. And most of all, this book taught me so many things. I mean, the real life learnings, which we sometimes in our arrogance or ignorance forget and how much are actions can impact others life. I really liked this book. I’ll give it 4/5. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
About the Show: The show is amazing and I don’t actually think I have ever said that for a book adaptation. I hate movies and shows based on books, they spoil everything. But, this particular show is an exception. It was wonderfully directed by Tom McCarthy and I loved it. Selena Gomez is one of the executive producers along with Michael Sugar, the producer of the film Collateral Beauty. The cast includes Dylan Minnette as Clay Jenson and Katherine Langford as Hannah. This show was truly amazing and I recommend it to you all.
