Supernova - Ksatria

Review in English:

Indonesia once had a book that is being waited fanatically by its readers, just like Harry Potter books did. This was the book. You can find the translated-to-English one called ‘Supernova: The Knight, The Princess, and The Falling Star’.

 This is a very complicated and amazing book, that will reorganize your thought on how we see the world, what is the real meaning of controversy and paradoxical cases. The first 2 chapter in the book is pretty hard to follow, as Dewi Lestari (common known as Dee), talked about physics and philosophy, both intertwined and left us confused. I read it twice to fully comprehend just what were they talking about in the couple first chapters.

 However, I guarantee you would get an epiphany just by reading this book. Dee explains a lot about the meaning of human existence through various main characters here, and they are all so complicated and smart it inspires you in so many levels. In addition, the ambience of the novel is mysterious and will leave you crave for more of it! One of the must-to-read book, and not even that thick if you scared it’ll bore you!

 Here’s a lil bit preview:

Dimas and Reuben have been together for 10 years, and they have been both partner and lover to each other. This time, they want to collaborate and create a fusion project of their area of expertise. Dimas with his big romance and literature in his head, and Reuben with all the science. They created a story of a knight, a princess, and a falling star. But, the thing is, is it really just a story?

 Resensi dalam Bahasa:

Sampai tahun 2016, ada salah satu novel seri Indonesia begitu aku tunggu-tunggu, bahkan hampir sama dengan menunggu Harry Potter. Inilah novel pertama dari seri Supernova, dengan tajuk Ksatria, Putri, dan Bintang Jatuh.

Buku ini merombak dan mengingatkan pembacanya tentang cara memandang dunia, apa yang sedang berlangsung dan bagaimana cara memahami kontroversi dan sesuatu yang paradoks. Dua bab pertama dari buku ini cukup sulit dicerna karena banyak mengungkit teori fisika kuantum dan filosofi, namun sangat, sangat, sangat menarik.

Dee memberikan pencerahan dan membuka pikiran para pembacanya melalui buku ini, mempertanyakan kembali eksistensi manusia melalui berbagai kejadian dan karakter. Namun harap diingat, buku ini tetaplah ber-gender fiksi, namun juga mengandung romantika dan filosofi. Nuansa yang Dee tonjolkan adalah misteri mengenai masing-masing karakternya, dan hal ini lah yang membuat pembaca terus dibuat penasaran!

Berikut cuplikannya:

Dimas dan Reuben sudah bersama selama 10 tahun, hidup berdampingan sebagai pasangan dan rekan kerja. Kali ini, mereka ingin melakukan kolaborasi. Kolaborasi yang akan meng-integrasi dua bidang yang mereka dalami. Dimas dengan dunia sastranya yang romantis, dan Reuben dengan ilmu filosofi dan fisikanya. Mereka merumuskan suatu cerita, tentang seorang ksatria, putri, dan bintang jatuh. Namun, apakah itu benar hanya sebuah cerita?
