The series follows teenager Clay Jensen, in his quest to uncover the story behind his classmate and crush, Hannah, and her decision to end her life.
The series from Netflix is based on the young adult novel by Jay Asher 13 reasons why. Before committing suicide Hannah (Katherine Langford) recorded 13 cassettes, each involving a class mate that was somehow responsible to end her life. The tapes are to be listened to in its entirety and then passed along to the next person on the tapes until everyone has heard them. The series focuses on Clay (Dylan Minnette), one of the people on the tapes and how is he going to react to it after hear them.
Here is a series for young adolescent but the adult can watch it as well. It is quit addictive. It has a bit of realism into it like the realities of teenage insecurities and the power people’s words and actions have over others. But the thing it is unlikely that a teenager will do that and leave tapes for everyone to hear. It is a fictional story here. Clay doesn’t listen to all the tapes in one night it does in 13 days one at the time and try to figure out why she ended her life. He is playing detective a bit, and the thing is you want to get to the 13 episodes to see why gives. The series is design well here to keep you interested until the last episode 13. Terrific series here on Netflix. Do not miss it.
