Review in English:

Hi! So today I want to talk to you about a more easy novel, in the genre of romantic.

This is an Indonesian novel, and if you’re looking for the ones in English, try to look for Anthology of Feelings. Ika Natassa is one of my favourite authors in this genre, since she is always brilliantly describe the feelings and relating it to daily life in a smooth way.

Anyhow, Anthology of Feelings is a cute novel, consisting of more than one main character, and focusing on their feelings, based on each point of view. So it’s really fascinating, to see the interaction of each character while knowing all the things going on inside their head.

This book is a very good book to help you relax after a busy day at work, or maybe after finishing exams. A kind of book that is suitable to be bring along while you are in a coffee shop or during flight. It’s easy to read and sweet. Anyhow, here’s a little preview:

Keara, Harris, Ruly, and Denise. Four friends that have been together for so long. But does each of them know what’s the other thinking? What’s the other keep secret from them?

Keara: “I want you so bad I’ll go back on the things I believe”

Harris: “If you make a girl laugh, she likes you. But if you make her cry, she loves you. Tonight, I just want to be the man that makes you stop crying”

Ruly: “What I didn’t tell her is the warmth in my chest when the nurse woke me up this morning, telling me my wife is awake. I have zero intention of correcting her.”

Empat bersahabat: Keara, Harris, Ruly, dan Denise, sudah saling mengenal sejak lama. Namun apakah masing-masing tahu dan mengerti perasaan yang lain? Adakah mereka menyadari rahasia yang disimpan oleh masing-masingnya?

Keara: “Harus ada cara melupakan fakta bahwa dia adalah satu-satunya laki-laki yang kuinginkan yang tidak bisa kutaklukkan.”

Harris: “…lagu-lagu cinta Celine Dion dan Mariah Carey yang mengiringi ratapan gue. The fucking soundtrack of my pathetic life. Pengiring tawa para malaikat karena seorang PK seperti gue akhirnya merasakan juga perihnya disakiti perempuan.”

Ruly: “…elo terlalu baik buat dia. Elo juga terlalu baik buat gue, tapi gue akan berusaha membuat elo mengerti apa rasanya dicintai sepenuh hati. But I’m much too coward anyway. Orang yang menyayangi elo ini, adalah laki-laki paling pengecut sedunia.”
