Everyone hates Tally, I'm pretty sure.  Isn't it amazing how we can all hate a protagonist yet love a book so much?
Because of Shay, and the amazing writing!!!

Shay I like. I think she would have been a better protagonist with Tally being the antagonist that she is.

A little off topic, but does anyone else think the weird men in Extras look like Nosferatu?

I really like Tally.

I guess, she's very real and yes, sometimes that may come off as annoying or whiny. But she's human and a teenager. She's allowed to have emotions.

I don't quite get why everyone hates her so much. I just like her and I can definitely relate with her.

I agree with you, but I think people hate her because the heroine of a book usually is, y'know, all kick-butt and brave and determined, but she's... not. She's normal.

well, yea, she's normal.

But I think she do kick ass in her own ways. (especially when she is cornered and had enough of the shit that world is giving or forcing her to take)

Like, she cured herself from the lesions. See, that isn't something everyone can do. And just for that, I think she kick ass.

But I guess, it's a matter of perspective and preference.

True. There are other female heroines that are more kick ass. And I guess, it do suck that Scott-la did not write her in that way but that's life. sighs.

But I guess, I still like her. So yea. lol.  ;D
