Ayahku (Bukan) Pembohong

Review in English:

Good morning! How are you today? How’s the family?

Some daughters are closer with their moms, but some with their fathers. Every child always has particular memories or things they shared with their parents, something they carry as they grow up. As a girl and a daughter, my bond with my father is special.

Sometimes, it’s as simple as fairytales. Just like the story in this book, Ayahku (Bukan) Pembohong. A son named Dam, carries his father advises while growing up, guidance that the father delivered through stories, often came from his own experiences…or so he said. Dam grows up with high moral values, planted by his father, making him his role model with incredible adventures and experiences, but as he grew up, he started to question the truth behind all those stories…

This is a story about love. The love of a father to his son, and the love of a son to his father that will never match his. Reading this will definitely make you miss your father, or probably your mother. It takes you back to your childhood, when you were in bed at night, listening to the stories they told before bed. I guaranteed you will be able to relate to Dam’s exact feeling. However, by the end of the book, a new light might shine upon you, about how deep a parent’s love is.

Resensi dalam Bahasa:

Seberapa dekat kamu dengan ayahmu?

Dalam keluarga-keluarga pada umumnya, sosok Ayah sangat berbeda dengan sosok Ibu. Ayah menanamkan dan mendidik nilai-nilai moral hidup dengan caranya sendiri, dan tidak selalu dengan kedekatan intesif seperti Ibu. Setiap anak pasti memiliki kenangan-kenangan tertentu yang menguatkan ikatan dengan orang tuanya, termasuk dengan Ayah.

Dalam cerita ini, ikatan Ayah dan Anak dibangun oleh cerita-cerita dongeng. Cerita-cerita penuh nilai moral yang didasarkan dari pengalaman dan pengetahuan Sang Ayah, memotivasi Dam, putranya, untuk mencontoh ayahnya dan mengaplikasikan nilai-nilai yang diajarkan ayahnya melalui cerita-cerita tsb.

Namun seiring berjalannya waktu dan Dam tumbuh besar, pertanyaan mulai timbul. Apakah cerita-cerita itu benar adanya? Ataukah hanya sekedar cerita untuk menemani tidur Dam di masa kecil? Apakah Dam bisa menerima kenyataan, ataukah ia membenci ayahnya atas apa yang tidak ia percayai?

Cerita ini mengembalikan ingatanmu ke masa kecil. Mengenang Ayah dan kasih sayangnya, yang mungkin tidak selalu sama dan mudah dimengerti. Sebuah cerita yang dijamin membuatmu ingin berlari pulang dan memeluk Ayah, memutar ulang waktu dan mengucapkan terima kasih atas yang pernah ia berikan.
