Clay Jensen a shy high school student, returns home from school one day to find he has received a mysterious package in the mail. It contained seven cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, a classmate who recently committed suicide by slitting her wrist in the bathtub.
The series was emotionally draining. Even though it’s a high school setup as I watched the series I could feel the hurt and pain at the hands of the people with whom I share my DNA. The show makes you think how you treat other people cause you do not understand what’s going on in someone else’s life even if their life seems perfect.
Not to mention the awesome soundtrack the series has. The best two are below :
- The Night We Met – Lord Huron : This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. This song is so perfect for the series I can’t get it out of my mind. So poignant.
2) Only You – Selena Gomez : The perception of this song is different for everyone. Some may see it as a break up song while some may play it at their wedding and I think that Is the beauty of this song they have the ability of taking us back to that point in our lives when we felt heartache or joy.
I had my own ’13 reasons’ as I was having deep dark feelings. Turned out I only had ten reasons, eventually I tore up the list. How many ever reasons you have, taking your life shouldn’t be a choice or an option;
