- Dude (Fiersa besari)
Acting as “me” is the main character in this novel
- Prem (Anisa Andini)
Acting as a girl friend, friend who participated in a trip around Indonesia, she is a great woman who is able to go up Sibayak Mountain, and has high spirits.
Men from the offer of plum friends who like diving once, even in a baduy story can only be seen at night. In the afternoon he just plunged into the sea to meet with fish.
- And there are many more characters who are told, they are new friends who help in every city visited by dude, plum, and Baduy.
In this novel, dude tells the flow back and forth, because writing and sharing stories why he got broken hearted, then determined to go around Indonesia.
The mandate contained in this novel is, we are becoming more aware that Indonesia is very, very beautiful, moreover than can be seen from television screens. The author even conveyed moral values in diversity, equal social values, respect for each other, helping one another and the spirit of introducing the motherland.
There are various photos taken by Bung, Plum, and Baduy that make the reader also can enjoy the nature of Indonesia
This book is also very interesting in each chapter is given a title that can increase knowledge such as:
(a) Relating to the past or characterizing old, old.
(n) wrong beliefs or thoughts because they conflict with the real world and are built on elements that are not based on logic; thought; suspicious
There is a bit of a sentence wrong, and the story is bear. Either there will indeed be a second step direction (I hope) at the end of the story very, very responsibility, we as readers are very curious to continue the story.
In my personal opinion, this book is very very doctrinal for its readers to get out of the house then wander, there are so many lessons for outdoor activities, and also a lot of moral and social messages that can be, we know and can appreciate so much diversity on this Indonesian earth.
