The Hating Game Book Review: Joshua Templeman and Lucy Hutton are hostile to one another. not aversion. not reluctantly put up with. Hate. And since they are executive assistants to the co-CEOs of a publishing company, they have no issue acting out their emotions through a sequence of ritualistic passive hostile gestures while they sit next to one another.
The Hating Game Book Review
Lucy finds it difficult to comprehend Joshua’s dreary, rigid, and exacting approach to his work. Joshua is obviously perplexed by Lucy’s eccentric behaviour, excessively bright attire, and upbeat outlook. They are now competing for the same position, and Lucy is refusing to give in even though their latest game could lose her her dream job. However, the conflict between Lucy and Joshua has also intensified, and Lucy is starting to realise that she might not actually despise Joshua. Perhaps he doesn’t despise her either. Or perhaps this is just a game.
Book Review: The Hating Game by Sally Thorne
Sally Thorne’s novel The Hating Game centres on Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman, two executive assistants who are compelled to work together after their opposing bosses join two competing publishing companies. They argue verbally and rile each other up throughout the day. Listening to their back-and-forth, passive-aggressive conversation was just too entertaining. They immediately captivated me and had me hooked.
The attraction between the two grows stronger and more obvious as the story goes on. Even though I had always known it existed, the wait for it to take shape in the narrative was agonising. These two had a love-hate relationship that was undeniable, and I knew their eventual convergence would be dramatic.
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne is exactly what it sounds like—a book about two people who are focused on winning “The Hating Game,” a past time where they spend every free moment plotting how to sabotage one another. There’s not really much to say about the plot here, as you pretty much get the details you need from the synopsis.
Lucy and Joshua are coworkers at a publishing house that was formed by the merger of two companies run by very different CEOs. When they discover that they are competing with one another for the same promotion, they are forced to go to war with one another. As the conflict escalates, they come to the realisation that perhaps they have been wrong about one another the entire time.
The Hating Game was a scrumptious treat; the characters were larger than life, and the plot was original while still retaining some familiarity and dependability.
