Talli Roland is that rare writer who presents the reader with imperfect characters–good guys and bad guys, alike–then drives them into terrible situations (something like my life and, possibly, yours), adds malice, dishonesty and greed until we don’t know whom to boo or to applaud. Certainly, the action doesn’t let up until the back cover.
Warts and all, her characters weave their flaws into plots and sub-plots fraught with surprise. At times, I noticed I was holding my breath and glad I wasn’t out on that limb.
It is so easy to imagine THE HATING GAME as a film or made-for-TV movie; it would definitely be a “Girls night out” film, but guys would enjoy seeing women as they/we really can be.
Loved it and can’t wait for the next one. One day soon, we are all going to be able to say, “I knew Talli Roland when … “ She’s that good.
