Ethic, science, and religion combined. Peter James carved this thriller as tortuous as the DNA double helix. Remarkable piece, seriously.
This is what I craved for in a novel! You should try reading this book :]
I, once Google-ed the author’s name and it was stated that he wrote a lot on thriller stories. Thriller? Well, I’m not a big fan? Why people keep mentioning his name? What’s so special?
Bought this book way back on April 2013, just wish to have a read, someday.
Then, I started to sink beyond the book about a month ago and today, I’ve finished it! Haha, I know a month is just too long to finish up a novel.
Big fan of history I am. This novel touched a lot about history (with some modification). About things that people would say “impossible”,”crazy” and I silently thought what if it was happened for real? Thumbs up for the author, what a beautiful epic! I love it. It make my fever-day.
Behind every major histories that were reported, I believed that there must be something that weren’t. Some of them maybe were nothing more than a myth. Nobody knows the real situation of the pasts. Nobody knows if the Hang Tuah really killed Jebat or why he was too worship Sultan? Did he was really too kind to ignore his love, just for Sultan? Nothing else than scared of tulah?
And what if another hero was really existed, just like Laksamana Sunan?
I have to say that the novel is intelligently written. Now I’m a big fan of Ramlee Awang Murshid, and Laksamana Sunan, too :]
I know I’m so much behind reading this. It was published on 2005 by the way. But nothing is too late to read, isn’t?
Pramoedya Ananta Toer
Okay, I was quite behind. Why I never heard of this name before?
He is an Indonesian writer, his book had been translated into more than 30 languages. and this time I don’t want to read the English version. I wonder where I could get a copy of his book. Is it still being published? I wanna read in its original language, or in simple Indonesian language.
Happened to read a quote from “Anak Semua Bangsa” written by him, and it keep staining.He must be a great writer! Is he is an Indonesian’s Hemingway? I wonder.
On my way of reading Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams. My first incarnation-theme novel which is somehow tally with a korean drama of Rooftop Prince. The novel is quite advance in language which forces me to spend quite a long time to finish it. But, insyaAllah, will finish it proud.
It seems like I started to love unusual and weird things,huh?
I just love to be out of this noisy planet and by reading those type of genre really made me.Not to mention that I hope I can write some novels and story like that too! Pray for me 🙂
This week is really a red-letter week. Knowing that my short story had been published on a website two months ago really make me in huge gratitude. Alhamdulillah.All praise to Allah. I just write to fulfill the “fire” inside me and not expect to receive that good news.
After all, it’s really a good beginning.
Until then, continue living and do something outstanding!
