I don't know how anyone who hasn't read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series feels, but comparing it to the books, I think this movie was awful. It's like the directer didn't like the plot, so he came up with an entirely different one! I think that if you believe you have to change something this much to get people to like it, then you shouldn't make it into a movie! (Don't get me wrong -- it was an awesome book, but the movie is just WAY different)
I started reading this book because my friend was reading it. The story revolves around a high school aged girl named Hannah Baker who had committed suicide. Before she swallowed the handful of pills to end her life, though, she recorded her voice explaining the 13 reasons why she made the final decision to kill herself. But there was a catch--only the people who played a big role in the 13 reasons would hear them...unless one of the people were to not pass the tapes on. As long as the tapes were passed along, their secrets would stay within their small circle. I recommend it to anyone who likes suspense, though there are multiple parts that may be inappropriate for some readers.
