Rahasia

Ku beri tahu satu rahasia padamu, kawan
Buah paling manis dari berani bermimpi
Adalah kejadian-kejadian menakjubkan
Dalam perjalanan menggapainya

The book that I’ve been waiting for impatiently. Finally, it’s here. Yup, it’s the fourth and the last book of Laskar Pelangi. At the time I received it, I directly read it and not able to stop it. The story is still the same. Fascinating, as always.

The story is about Ikal’s experiences when he goes back to his hometown in Belitong after finishing his master degree in France. He meets his old friends, Laskar Pelangi members and begins his journey to find his dream lady, A Ling.

As the final book, it wraps up all. All important characters from the previous books appear and take part here. A lot of hilarious stories of Belitong people are told in detail. Andrea Hirata and his magic words still fascinate me. Make me speechless and at last feel sad since I have to say farewell to this great stories. I feel like losing a good friend. That’s the magic of a great book.

One word for Andrea: Amazing!

hm.. mba,
i kinda disagree with you on this..
menurut aku buku ini is somehow surreal gimanaa gitu.
i like the part where he describes the Belitong people so perfectly funny yet innocent.
but i dont like the last part, on his journey to the islands, with the pirates and all..
i know some of those were true, but still, sounds a bit too heroic, with a mixture of magic. kaya harry potter versi melayu.. hiks..
i kinda lost him in this book..

begitulah pendapat saya.. hueheuehhehe

jeng ingkan,

memang di buku ke 4 ini banyak kejadian yg keliatannya bukan kejadian nyata, mungkin byk pesan yg mau disampaikan oleh andrea di buku ini sbg buku penutup.

tapi tetap aku kagum dg riset dia, either untuk buat perahu, sejarah bajak laut, perjalanan menempuh laut,dll, banyak hal yg aku dapet & tetep inspiring, belum pernah ketemu penulis indonesia yg kata2nya begitu full of magic (instead of Pramoedya Ananta Toer tentunya), so...aku tetep enjoy dg buku ini, but...selera orang kan beda2 ya jeng. eniwei...thx for sharing your review.
