This time, I am going to promote a young Indonesian novelist who has published 3 novels that inspiring me and some friends who had read the novels. His name is Andrea Hirata and his novels are based on his own life.
The novel is about the efforts of children who tried to pursue their dreams in acquiring education. The story line is simple but the way he made the story is really cool. There will be a time to smile at the children's innocent, laugh at their silly actions, but there will also be another time to cry on their hard efforts to get education, feel sad of all their limitation and feel lucky because my life is luckier than them. Andrea wrote all the journey of his life ironically and touchable
I can't stop reading the novel until i finish it. the story and the way Andrea wrote the story is really good. Furthermore, it is based on true story. After reading the novel, I am sure that the readers will learn a lot of moral messages, teased by all the ironics, and burn with all the spirits.
It is tetralogy, but Andrea has published 3 of them, LASKAR PELANGI, SANG PEMIMPI and EDENSOR.
No doubt, the novels are must read novels. Don't wait until they are sold out.........
