I recently completed the novel Thirteen Reasons Why? and of course, loved it! I loved all but the ending chapters. The voice of Clay made me wish there was a Clay in my life. Someone with strong ideals and not afraid to not kiss a girl. I waited with anticipation to see what Hannah would say about him, hoping that he wouldn't ruin her life like the others.
Now, the ending chapters.... I'm not sure why the author felt like he had to justify Hannah's suicide with the rape and death of another student. To me, those two "shockers" could have been left out and the novel would have been complete. I mean, she was empty and willing to give up before those two events, so why have them? To add shock value?
What do you think?
