mari cakap pasal buku

kalau anda ada banyak masa untuk sebuah buku, sila baca buku ini.

i wont do any reviews as i hate to do so. i dont think my words well described this novel. i have so many to speak of the book until i found myself speechless. its about war, endless love, brotherhood, family, cruelty, harmony and memories. (read: tiada cintan cintun pasangan kekasih) initially, i thought it would be another boring story about war and plus its by Malaysian author. but no, i was wrong. this is one of the book that kept me awake at night and searching for it as soon as i wake up.

the story moves me and gift great affections in me, enough said.
good job, Tan Twan Eng.

and life will be understandable. That is the irony of life.
It is also the beauty of it."

Good storybooks are often character driven, not plot driven. Good storybooks should open the mind of the readers with multitude of world issues discussed within. Good storybooks contain ironies.

Storybooks written by female authors normally contain unnecessary descriptions about the characters and the world they create, only to thicken the book.
