The main character, Musalodi or Salo, is interesting to get to know but I would have liked more details about the rest of his traveling group. However, this book was really drawn out with so much detail for just over about 90% of the book. Then the remainder had so many things happen and felt rushed before ending like some summer blockbuster movie that has a sequel coming next summer. Not enough happened in the first 90% of this book to warrant needing a second when an editor could have chopped it in half to easily fit two books into a reasonable-length single book. With this book being such a slog to get through, I cannot imagine myself taking the time to read the second.

I started reading The Hating Game because the movie recently came out and reviews suggested reading the book first. The movie has a lot to live up to as The Hating Game in book form kept my attention for long stretches and earned lots of smiles and a few laughs along the way.
I think this is my first time reading a "rom-com" novel. I'm probably not hooked on the genre but I did enjoyed reading this book.
