Remember 5cm novel? This novel is quite phenomenal. Up till now it has been re-printed 15 times and reached 100.000 copies, wow!!!! Currently the novel is still under preparation to be adapted into a movie. 2 is the second novel written by Donny Dhirgantoro.

Just like in 5cm this novel also tells about dreams, love and faith. If in 5cm the author tells about friendship while in 2 it focuses more on family. A story about Gusni, an overweight girl who was born with genetic disorder and doctor said she won't have a long life. Despite feeling desperate, Gusni encourages herself to do something about her health. She finally chooses badminton in order to burn her fat and avoid more weight.

I love the idea of the novel but honestly I don't enjoy reading it. I even skipped many pages. There are too many useless pages. The author actually only talks about simple thing but why on earth does he always use very long sentences to express it? I know every writer has his/her own writing style, perhaps this time I am just not into the style.

@alaya: iya, sepertinya gaya bahasa & penulisan buku ini lebih pas utk anak2 SMA/kuliah bukan untuk ibu2 seperti saya... :D
