Book Review: Inteligensi Embun Pagi

Title: Inteligensi Embun Pagi
Author: Dee Lestari
Publisher: Penerbit Bentang
February 2016
710 pages

I grew up with Supernova series since it was launched back in 2001. Dee Lestarias the author, took 15 years to end these series. All big fans of Supernova would impatiently wait for this 6th book, Inteligensi Embun Pagi. I was also curious about the ending and what would happen to all characters of the series. 

Well…I have finished the book couple days ago and now I got a mixed feeling. I found something went wrong in this latest book. It's just too thick with many pages that simply could be skipped   because I didn't get the point of the writing either. Moreover too many new characters, no deep description of existing characters, lots of 'technical' terms and WHY oh WHY this book turned into a teenager-science-fiction with a mission to save the world? HUGE disappointment. 

I guess not only the readers but also the author grew with these series. If we compare each book of Supernova series, we will find differences for each of them, such as the characters, the plot, and others. Every written story will definitely be influenced by author's feeling, surrounding, inspiration, and many more. I don't know whether Dee wrote this latest book in a hurry (since her fans kept asking her to finish this book) or she just wanted to surprise her readers with this unexpected yet disappointing ending.

me too, mbak ... a little disappointed .. bingung .. tapi gak tega ngasih cuma 2 bintang ... :D gak ngerti kenapa tiba2, jadi cerita superhero begitu .... i don't mind with a little bit romance ... aku kaya'nya jadi lebih suka, kalo cerita tokoh2 supernova itu berdiri sendiri ... gak tau tiba2 tokoh yang kaya'nya 'biasa-biasa' aja, macam si Mpret ... eh.. koq ya bagian dari 'peretas' or something itu ...

dan .. entah aku yang gak nyambung atau gimana .. masih belum 'connect' aja, kenapa sesuatu yang harusnya karangan Dimas dan Reuben.. koq ya, tiba2 jadi beneran ...

duh.. jadi panjang deh comment di sini ...:D

hiks…hiks...….samaan ya fer? aku sampai skip banyak banget halaman karena ga ngerti apa sih maunya buku ini? iya…usul bagus, harusnya memang tokoh2 di buku ini dibiarkan hidup di alamnya sendiri aja, ga usah 'dipaksa' untuk ketemu, akhirnya malah menghancurkan cerita yang kita puja2 selama 15 tahun :( #bingung antara sedih & emosi… #baper
