Product description

Review

‘The No-Kids Club is another winner by Talli Roland! It was well-written and fast-paced, and enjoyable to the very last page.’ —The Book Chick

‘With humour and sass by the bucket load, the characters in this fantastic story swept me into their world. The No-Kids Club is Talli Roland – but Talli all grown up – and I’ve got to say, I really like it.’ —Chick Lit Love

About the Author

Talli Roland was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. By age 13, she’d finished her first novel and received very encouraging rejections from publishers. Talli put writing on hold to focus on athletics, achieving provincial records and becoming a Canadian university champion in the 4 × 400 meter relay. After getting her BA, she turned to writing again, earning a Masters in Journalism. A few years later, she left Canada behind and settled in London, where she now lives with her husband and their young son.

Talli writes bittersweet and witty contemporary women’s fiction.

Her debut novel, The Hating Game, was short-listed for Best Romantic Read at the UK's Festival of Romance, and her second, Watching Willow Watts, was selected as an Amazon Customer Favourite.

Talli’s website is www.talliroland.com, and she blogs regularly at www.talliroland.blogspot.com.

Whilst I quite enjoyed reading this, the back page information did not give s true picture of the books content. The no-kids club became focussed on the main characters surprise pregnancy. I was going, having read the back cover, that this would be an alternative to the heroine almost always having children.
Maybe a little on the back page hinting at the baby centric outcome.

I had never read any of Talli Roland’s books before, but when she contacted me via twitter asking if I would like to review her new book, I decided having read the blurb I would enjoy it.

Clare is almost forty, child free but in a relationship with Edward. Clare has no desire to want children, Edward on the other hand does, and with all her friends talking about babies and biological clocks Clare needs a break. She decides to set up The No Kids Club, for others like her, who do not want to have children.

To begin with Clare is thrilled that she has two members in her No Kids Club, however it is soon apparent they are there for different reasons than Clare. Anna is happily married, she is a housewife and children do not enter her and her husband’s lives. Poppy is a primary school teacher and has longed to have children with her husband Alistair, unfortunately they haven’t been able to conceive naturally and have just been through their fourth round of IVF.

I feel that many people will be able to relate to this book, those who haven’t wanted children and those who can’t. Regardless of reasons behind why you haven’t got children this club has bought these women together. I feel that sometimes it is a bit of a taboo for women to suggest they don’t want children, however it today’s society I think it is becoming more common. IT is nice that this has been addressed in this book and also that you shouldn’t tar a woman with the same brush for not having children, as you have no idea the reason why they don’t.

I enjoyed the style it was written in, in that each chapter we visited another character. I enjoyed reading about all the characters in the book; however I feel that Clare and Poppy were the strongest two. Their personalities came across well in the book.

The No-Kids Club is thought up by Clare when she couldn't get a decent conversation with her friends without them going on and on about children.
The first two members to join have issues with the topic of children themselves which is why they need non-kid conversations. The book then follows the lives of these three women as they find out what they really want in life.

I enjoyed reading about them avoiding kid-talk, but inevitably, as with the chick-lit canon, the more they don't talk about children, the more the topic of children comes up.

As with all of Talli Roland's books, you get a great easy to read story with reasonably happy endings, although the endings may not be what you expect from the start.

This is not my favourite of the author's books, probably because the subject matter didn't really interest me, but in saying that, I always get a great quality interesting read from this author and will always read one of her books.

It’s clear how Clare feels about having children from the intimate scene with boyfriend Edward – and with best friend Ellie 7 ½ months pregnant and attending all types of clubs for pregnant mums, the idea of the No-Kids Club takes shape at Ellie’s baby shower. She is determined to meet people without children in their lives.

Anna and Poppy are the first women to attend the meet up and for very different reasons.

Talli Roland’s writing always just flows so it was easy to become involved in our three women’s lives. Clare thinking she knows what she wants, Anna losing herself in her relationship and Poppy obsessed to such a degree that she can’t feel/see anything else.

I have to admit squirming while Clare was on live TV talking about how she feels not wanting children … dressed from wardrobe in clothes that just weren’t her and giving the wrong idea to the viewing public. It did give the No-Kids Club a high profile though!

I’ve enjoyed getting caught up in the character’s lives with the drama and conflict – wanting to shake Michael because he just might lose everything he takes for granted, tell Nicholas to own up, shout at Poppy that she’s going to lose everything with her lies and give Clare a hug while saying she is missing a vital link in how she feels.

The No-Kids Club tackles the subject of fertility/infertility and societal expectations brilliantly. Talli Roland shows us those tangles of emotions and misunderstandings through our characters with such realism and sensitivity.

Another great Talli Roland novel and I recommend for all romance readers.

I would like to thank the author for pre-approval via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I can't recommend this book enough. Of course, I say that about all of Talli's books, but the characters in this story really resonated with me. I also found it exciting to see how each character's personal dilemma was resolved by the end of the novel. There are no easy answers in any of their situations, and Talli does a great job exploring the nuances of each relationship.

Can't wait to get this one for all my friends!
