Shot trying to stop him, Valerie inadvertently saved the life of a classmate, but was implicated in the shootings because of the list she helped create. Jennifer Brown's critically acclaimed.
Plot summary[ edit ] The novel deals with the aftermath of a school shooting. It is a first person narrative from the point of view of Valerie Leftman, whose boyfriend Nick Levil was the shooter. Interspersed through the novel are newspaper articles about the events. Valerie and Nick have compiled a Hate List, a list of people and things they hate; Valerie sees it as an inside joke between the two of them, but Nick is more serious. When he brings a gun to school and starts shooting people, Valerie puts herself in front of his next victim, Jessica Campbell, and is shot in the leg. After this, Nick kills himself. Once Valerie wakes up in the hospital to face the consequences, she soon realizes that she harbors some of the blame for the people who were killed or wounded.
But in case her mother Sonia leaves India or something happens to her, Priyanka — and not Rahul — will be the natural choice of the Congress to take up the reins. Would Priyanka think and act differently from her mother, brother, father and grandfather? Plus her husband Robert Vadra, a man who multiplied his wealth by in five years, is an albatross around her neck. Barkha Dutt. Most probably Barkha started like a young and idealistic journalist.
But the fact that she was married twice to a Kashmiri Muslim, must have influenced her mind. The power that came with NDTV, as it grew into the most sophisticated TV news channel, and her proximity to the Congress party, also went to her head. From a young journo, Barkha turned into a Hindu basher — you just have to listen to the Radia tapes to understand that. Also, woe to those who disagree with her in her interviews and programs, as she rudely interrupts them when she feels like it. There are also accusations of corruption against her and her boss Prannoy Roy.
Kancha Ilaiah. This hatred makes him irrational. Unfortunately, we gave up eating beef and our brains are not growing now. Aamir Khan. Once upon a time, Aamir Khan, benefited from the goodwill of all, Muslims as well as Hindus. His TV program on social issues, Satyamev Jayata, even raised his status to a crusader for human rights.
Then slowly the mask dropped, and one could see that he was no different from the average Muslim, when it came to Hindus, the BJP and Narendra Modi. His anti-Hindu gurus film, like PK, created too a lot of enmity. Not a friend of Hindus. Shah Rukh Khan. As Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh is also married to a Hindu, but raises his kids as Muslims, and whenever it suits him, plays the minority card Pakistan invited him many times to settle there. In fact, playing a little anti-Hindu card, pleases their Muslim fans and does no harm to their image, as Hindus anyway never retaliate, even by boycotting their films.
Amartya Sen. This one is a deadly enemy of Hindus, much more than many, because he got the Nobel Prize, teaches in Oxford and is highly respected in the West. But make no mistake about it: Amartya Sen is a true Marxist and he rode his fame on the back of his false theories about poverty in India and in the West. It is a pity that the Congress Govt gave him the Nalanda University project for which he did nothing.
He should become persona non grata in India.
Rajdeep Sardesai. He was also seen in his true light in New York, where he portrayed himself as a victim of a hard-line Hindu, whereas the video replays showed that in fact he was the aggressor.
There have been many rumours that his father, converted to Christianity late in life and that may have influenced Rajdeep, for he has definitely a Christian-Marxist view of India and Hindus.
Angana Chatterjee. In fact, Shapiro was barred from entering India in Teesta Setalvad. She has used any means to go after Hindus, particularly their leaders and specially Mr Narenda Modi.
Unfortunately, Teesta has been repeatedly exposed for having indulged in unethical acts and has cases pending against her in courts for perjury. Her anti-Hindu agenda is her source of income from foreign agencies. She has taken the courts for a ride with her perjury and her acts of influencing witnesses. She has misused the lack of education and poverty of victims to file false affidavits to further her own agenda. Aurangzeb was a monster not only to Hindus, but also to his own family: he beheaded his brother Dara Shikoh, who was the rightful heir to the throne, poisoned his own father, imprisoned his son…Yet, Romila Thapar, Harbans Mukhia and Bipan Chandra, once upon a time professors at the JNU in New Delhi, the Mecca of secularism and negationism in India, denied the Aurangzeb genocide on Hindus by replacing it instead with a conflict of classes.
What are the facts? Yet Shivaji is treated as a nobody in Indian History books and Aurangzeb like a stern but just emperor….. He and Romila Thapar ruled supreme for nearly 40 years in devising Indian school curriculum. Together they have falsified Indian History with total impunity and went after the Hindus full steam. He has written a number of books targeting Hindus and their spiritual leaders.
Unfortunately, as many of these leftist intellectuals, he is fairly popular in the West and often quoted by western correspondents based in India. Romilla Thapar.
Romila Thapar is a traitor to her own culture and society, for she is a Hindu. Ram is a fervent disciple of Marxism and communist China.
The magazine of the Hindu, Frontline, although well written, as the Hindu, perpetuates a dead ideology. Unfortunately the Hindu is still read by many in India, including westerners in the South of India. Why did CNN, a renowned western television, choose to partner someone who is against the majority community of their country? Mamta Banerjee. It is said that Mamta Banerjee is a Kali worshipper and does regular pujas when she is alone in her house. Unfortunately Mamta has realized that she can get elected as West Bengal Chief Minister on the sole strength of the Muslim vote.
She thus panders to them, turning a blind eye to the atrocities committed on the Hindus by the Bangladeshis refugees, who are given ration cards so that they can vote for Mamta. To what depths will Indian politicians sink to get votes? That is a tragedy and something should be done. Akbaruddin Owais. Proof that India is a democracy lies in the fact that people like Owais and his brother can not only rant against the Hindus and preach near secession, but also get elected.
There has to be some limits to preaching hatred and separatism. How can the Indian Government allow these separatists to openly visit the Pakistani embassy in Delhi or travel to Pakistan to take instructions from their masters? No country tolerates that kind of open separatism, be it France with Corsica, or even England with the faraway Falkland Islands, which geographically belong to Argentina.
How to forget too that the Muslims chased out of the Valley of Kashmir Zakir Naik. Zakir Naik tried to hurt religious sentiments of Hindus by denigrating Shri Ganesh; that too, during the Ganesh Festival.
By making such comments Naik has hurt religious sentiments of billions of Hindus. Naik also went after Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in the famous debate. Christophe Jaffrelot. Funnily, he regularly comes to India to release the English translations of his books and is feted by the Press corps and gets all kind of laudatory reviews.
I know for a fact that in France, it has an influence on the top bureaucrats and the politicians, as every time something important happens in India — elections, catastrophes, riots, etc, their slanted opinions are sought by newspapers radios and televisions. It is nowadays fashionable in India to always highlight the downtrodden condition of Indian women and their underprivileged place in Indian society. But no country in the world has granted such an important place to women in its spirituality and social ethos.
Karunanidhi and before him his mentor, Anna, exploited to the hilt he Dravidian theory. According to this theory, which was actually devised in the 18th and 19th century by British linguists and archaeologists, who had a vested interest to prove the supremacy of their culture over the one of the subcontinent, the first inhabitants of India were good-natured, peaceful, dark-skinned shepherds, called the Dravidians.
Then, around B. Karunanidhi also exploits this theory and he and Anna have made life for Tamil Brahmins so miserable that many left Tamil Nadu for Delhi or even the US.
Wendy Doniger. Rama banishes Sita as Dasharatha has banished Rama. Significantly, the moment when Rama kicks Sita out for the second time comes directly after a long passage in which Rama makes love to Sita passionately, drinking wine with her, for many days on end; the banishment comes as a direct reaction against the sensual indulgence. Akbar is one of the goody-goodies in Indian History books, like Ashoka because he was a Buddhist, that Marxist historians like to glorify.
No doubt, Akbar was one of the better Mughal emperors, but did you know that when he captured Chittor on February 25, , he ordered that the thirty thousand civil population be butchered, including women and children who has taken shelter in the fort?
Michael Witzel, Professor of Sanskrit at Harvard, Witzel must be one of the worst enemies of Hindus in the USA, as shown recently when he tried to prevent the removal of references to India, Hinduism in the curriculum followed by schools in California which parents of Indian origin found to be inadequate, inaccurate or just outright insensitive.
His proximity to Left historians in India is no secret. Amnesty International, which has a large number of Pakistanis in its staff, has always been hostile to Hindus. I remember showing an exhibition on Kashmir in London at the prestigious Commonwealth Club.
What did the Kashmiri Hindus do that Amnesty considers them untouchable? And how come that the Muslims of the Valley who chased them by terror and made them flee their ancestral lands and homes are not condemned by Amnesty? There are many questions asked today about the role of P Chidambaram when he was in power during the ten years of the Congress. Did Chidambaram, with the knowledge of Sonia Gandhi close his eyes on an assassination plot on the person of Mr Narendra Modi? As the Home Minister of India, it would be a crime.
Sitaram Yechury. Yechury is an intelligent man and a brilliant speaker — but he is an enemy of Hindus. Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa is still the worst publicity for India. No doubt, she did saintly work. This said, one may wonder: What did Mother Teresa really stand for? Was caring for the dying and orphaned children her only goal?
Mother Teresa never attempted to counterbalance this negative image of India, of whom she was the vector, by a more positive one. She could have said for instance that she was worshipped in a country of million Hindus. Karan Thapar. Does that explain why Karan, though a decent man, is known for his anti-Hindu bias? Once he invited me on a program about the painter M. By Dierdra McGillHate list will be a difficult book for some and a refreshing one for others. For me it was a refreshing and easy read.
I devoured it in two days and would have been one if I had not made myself take breaks because of my eyes hurting. Valerie and Nick are dating and outcast in their high school. As most people can attest to high school can be rough and hard to get through. There is often bullying, social anxiety, and an array of other problems children often face.
Valerie, trying to get rid of some frustrations starts a list of things that she hates, this list also includes names of people she hates.
Valerie and Nick relish in this list but Nick takes it one step farther when he starts shooting kids at their high school. Hate List deals with a lot of issues, school shootings, hate, bullying, cliques, family dynamic, and how hard peer-pressure can often be.
For that reason I really found this book a great and easy read. There was nothing so graphic that it made it hard to read and would be suitable for any teen to read. I would actually recommend every teen possible read this! A well written book that tells a story that is not talked about enough! Well worth the money and time to read this. PowerfulBy Britt R. As someone in Colorado at the time of Columbine, and can remember that day and the ones that followed, this was a book I felt very compelled to read.
Valerie's boyfriend went on a shooting spree through the school. His victims were ones that he and Valerie had put on a "hate list. So when the truth comes out after the shooting, it's hard to not blame Valerie for at least part of it.
Even though she was the one that got in the way and stopped Nick from hurting more people. Valerie makes the brave decision to go back to the high school for her senior year. She's faced with the uncertainty of acceptance and having to face all those people that knew they were on the list. The school has been changed and soon, one of the girls that had been on the list reaches out to her, and helps her find some acceptance within the school and with herself.
I was moved to tears at the end of this book. It was one of the most emotional ending I have ever read, and I applaud Brown for tackling this subject with grace and respect and writing one of the best books I have ever read.
She doesn't expect her boyfriend Nick to use that list for targets in a school shooting.
