Sebelas Patriot

"Jika ada hal lain yang sangat menakjubkan di dunia ini
selain cinta, adalah sepakbola."

--Andrea Hirata

The 7th novel of Andrea Hirata. A story about football. A love among a son, a father and football and how they interact with each other. Still telling about Ikal, this time he tells about his father and just found out that his father was actually a great football player when he was young. Inspiring by his father's story, Ikal finally tries his best to follow his dream in becoming a football player.

Just a very thin novel only 101 pages but completed with 3 songs about football. I finished it within one hour. My suggestion is if you want to enjoy this book, do not compare it to Laskar Pelangi tetralogy. This one is just a simple book about something that the author love most. The football.
