I was thrilled to pick up a stand alone. I have heard that this is going to be a movie. I've read a lot of books over the years but this was my first book about an actual suicide. Attempted suicides in books yes I believe so but not a successful suicide. Since that is a heavy topic this might not be a book for everyone. It is really unique because there are videos on Youtube that bring the tapes to life.
Before Hannah Baker commits suicide she makes tapes that are passed to a group of people. Clay is one of these people. So you're getting her take on things before her death along with Clay as he listens to the tapes. I will admit that I get what that commentor said about the person speaking as Hannah reminding them of Sasha from Pretty Little Liars. She did have an Aliosity about her even though it was clear to me that it wasn't her speaking just like the randomness of people saying it wasn't Mona's voice heard when she was in Radley after being unmasked as A. I just heard Janel speaking.
I'm just glad I had cookies handy after I read this book. I think I'm having a book hangover which is probably my first. I'm fuzzy on the details on what a book hangover is but I'm thinking I'm having one. It doesn't help that I also have a bit of a stupid headache and don't even get me started on my hands. I did enjoy the book and it made me want to reread The Bell Jar and Girl, Interrupted. Now I'm going to try to figure out what the hell I'm going to do today. Until next time read on my friends read on. Also if you have any stand alone selections please tell me. Since avoiding series completely is impossible I'm going to try to stick with trilogies since that might be the closest I can get to stand alone.
