Last week a couple of people recommended a new TV show to me. Its name is “13 reasons why” and it’s a Netflix show based on a book of the same name. Now I haven’t read the book before, but I’ve heard that it’s a story about the suicide of a teenage girl and how it affected everyone in her life. Sure, that story seems pretty interesting, only I remembered that the title is “13 reasons why” and I wondered… could it be that someone really wrote a suicide story and explained it with 13 reasons? Sadly I was right.
Now I’m not here to talk about that TV show. In fact, if you want to watch it, I can tell you that the acting is good and that there’s a suicide scene that may not be easy to see. But this TV show made me read a book I wanted to read for a long time (I’ve seen the movie a lot of times). The subject is similar, of course, it’s a story about teen suicides only this time there are no 13 or even a 100 reasons why… The story is much more complex than that.
