This book was so amazing, and I am guessing that the audiobook format definitely helped me to better appreciate the story. Why? Because the book is about a girl, Hannah Baker, who killed herself — but not before recording herself explain the 13 reasons why. She records the reasons on 7 cassettes and makes sure to create a copy so that the people she talks about will (1) have a chance to listen to said cassettes and (2) pass them on to the other people on the list. If they don’t, the second set of tapes will be leaked to the general public, and no on on the tapes would want that!
There were two voice actors for this audiobook. One for Hannah (of course), and one for Clay Jenson. Clay was, perhaps, one of the nicest people who ever knew Hannah, so he cannot understand why he would be getting the tapes. Did he really do something that pushed her closer to committing suicide? And who else was on the tapes? What did everyone do? And why was there time enough to record these tapes without Hannah changing her mind?
If you think you’re strong enough not to be haunted, or if you just don’t care that you may be, I highly recommend this audiobook. (I suppose I can recommend the actual book too, but I think the audiobook is definitely most appropriate in this case.)
