Hallo, ich muss für ein Schulprojekt (Book in a Box) eine Zusammenfassung des Buches und ein Kommentar dazu schreiben. Wäre dankbar, wenn sich jemand den Text auf Fehler durchlesen könnte. Vielleicht interessierts ja auch jemand:) Danke schonmal!
13 reasons why
The novel “13 reasons why” by Jay Asher is about the high school student Hannah Baker, who recorded 13 reasons why she wants to end her life on 7 audiotapes, before she finally committed suicide. On each side of a tape she recorded one reason or to be precise one person, who contributed to Hannah’s suicide.
When Clay Jensen, a shy high school student, returns home from school one day, he finds a shoebox-sized package at his front door, which is addressed to him. As he opens the box he discovers 7 audiotapes.
Using the old stereo of his dad he starts listening the first tape and gets frightened by hearing Hannah’s voice saying “Hello boys and girls. Hannah Baker here. Live and in stereo”. On the first tape Hannah explains that she wants everyone on the tapes to listen them exactly in the right order and when they finished them, they should pass it on to the next person on the tapes. As soon as he has finished side A of cassette 1, confused and a bit scared he heads over to Tony, someone he has known from school, because he owns an old Walkman. And because he doesn’t know how to explain it to Tony, he just steals the Walkman as Tony doesn’t notices it.
Within 24 hours Clay listens to all of the 13 audiotapes about the 11 students and one teacher (Justin, the first one, is also on the 10th tape). The first one, Justin Foley, is according to Hannah the beginning of everything. Hannah and Justin kissed in the park once, after she developed a crush on him. Despite this, Justin betrayed her by telling his friends that more had happened in the park than a kiss, earning Hannah the reputation of slut at school. And all the persons on the tape contributed to distribute this bad reputation by either just making it worse or even raping her.
