Book Review: Perahu Kertas

It’s another love story; that is how I will describe this book.

Meet Kugy, a cute messy little girl who loves to write fairy tales; and Keenan, a painter who is also an excellent student (I wonder where Dee got these names from). When fate makes them meet, they are actually attracted to each other, and eventually ‘related’ to each other. The problem is, their relationship has to deal with lots of difficulties. And the book tells how they deal with them.

This novel, unlike Dee’s previous novels, is surprisingly very light, pop, simple, and, in some extends, smells like a teenlit to me. In Perahu Kertas, Dee’s writing style is quite different from what we are familiar with, yet it flows beautifully and is still enjoyable.

After all, this novel surely will serve you with a well composed prose which is very easy to be digested. But if you are a man/boy who does not like a girlie teenage love story, I suggest you to buy this book, wrap it, and hand it over to your girlfriend as a gift :)


Considering the theme, the plot, and Dee’s touch on the overall story, I give Perahu Kertas 7 out of 10 scores ^_^

(It was actually 6,5; but I love the cover very much, hence a give extra 0,5 to the artist who designed it ^_^)
