After reading Laksmi Pamuntjak's latest novel Amba, I am impatiently waiting for her next writing project. I love her poetical way in telling stories. Unfortunately Aruna & Lidahnya is not poetic at all instead it is more on pop stories.

The setting of the book is during Avian Flu outbreak in Indonesia. As an Epidemiologist (Outbreak Expert) with specialization on Avian Flu, the central character here Aruna is assigned by her office to investigate Avian flu cases in eight cities in Indonesia. Aruna is a 35-year-old-single-woman who is obssesed by food. 

While completing her assignment, Aruna asked her two best friends, Bono the Chef and Nadezhda the Food and Travel Writer, to come along with her. Thus here you will enjoy three enjoyable stuff which are food, traveling and friendship.

Since the food in the book are described in details thus all seems so tempting and delicious therefore I recommend you to full your tummy first before you start drowning in Aruna's thought. Enjoyable reading. Love it.
