Author : Dwitasari
Publisher : PlotPoint Publishing
Pages : 217
Everyone has their own way to love ; choose to be quiet,watch from a distance,or pray quietly. Everyone has their own way to fall in love without sharing it with the person they love. Everyone also has their own way of sharing laughter and hiding their own tears.
After the success of the Giants From Jogja, Dwitasari has now collected 14 of these stories. The story of the happiness of love and pain harbored love. The story of people who keep a name in their hearts. The story that will make us ask: what are the obstacles to expressing love?
The way he tells stories with an easy-to-understand vocabulary, with sweet quotes or poetic inserts can bring the reader into feeling.
The turmoil of a person who harbored love reads very clearly, how the emotional processing of characters, how to solve problems that are written in a short but astonishing at the end of a sentence, even how the difference in perspective in a short story.
Many social issues such as love but with different religions, I love him but he loves other men, wrong relationships, I see his figure in you, the past that comes back, friends or what ?, Misunderstanding, first meeting, love triangle, love in cyberspace.
The weakness of this novel is in the story which is sometimes easy to guess with just one clue. As in the short story “Seeing You” which takes the theme of the wrong association. But still, the way he tells is able to make it still enjoyable for readers.
