From my previous post, I promised you to write about The Catcher in The Rye, right after I finished the book. I’m not an expert on English literature, but I’ll share my opinions about this phenomenal book.
I started reading the book yesterday and it already killed me. I very like the way the story is written. It’s just so natural and flowing like you’re having conversation with the person in the book, this Holden Caulfield. Everytime I paused the reading, I started to thinking about describe anything around me with this kind of words. Unaware, I criticized the people, place, or situation that shown in front of my very eyes. And I’m not this kind of people before.
Anyway, I was thinking, maybe I should write this way sometime. So free and careless, it’s like there’s nothing to fear about. But still, I’ll refrain myself not to speak profane as in the book. That’s the end of this short brainwash. As soon as I finished reading this book, I’ll write another post about the book.
Have you read the book? Give me your feeling about it.
At the early 1976, two young boys created a prototype of a computer in their garage. The computer, at that time, could sell like “a star in the tight world of computer freaks.”. A year after that, an investor came to them and they started to build a company. These two boys are Steve Jobs and Steve “Woz” Wozniak. And the company is Apple Computer, Inc.
The story of the company begun. Their next product, called Apple II, was intended for personal use and sold like a candy. This product brought the company to its peak.
In the early 1976, two young men started to build a computer prototype in their garage. Computer at that time still limited both in hardware and in software. Among computer freaks, this prototype is considered as a jewel and sold good. A year after that, Mike Markkula, an investor, came to plant money on their new company. These two people are Steve Jobs and Steve “Woz” Wozniak. And the company is Apple Computer, Inc. Continue reading →
Title: Maryamah Karpov: Mimpi-Mimpi Lintang (Maryamah Karpov: Dreams of Lintang)
Author: Andrea Hirata
Publisher: Bentang Pustaka
This book was the last piece of Laskar Pelangi tetralogy. It was my most awaited book on 2008, and finally it has been published at the end of year. So when one of the biggest book store in Indonesia gave discounts for it, I bought it without thinking.
The story of Ikal from the third piece, Edensor, continued. He already passed his thesis examination and went home to Belitong. Here, he caught up with some interesting events like the first-to-come doctor from Jakarta (a dentist one), his meeting with old mates from Laskar Pelangi, and his search for A Ling (Ikal’s first love). The last event has the most portion in this book. That’s what we’ve been waiting for, right? Ikal’s search led to an amazing voyage.
As Andrea said in an interview with local television, he found his spirit like when he wrote the first piece, Laskar Pelangi. But I still think that Laskar Pelangi was better than this. Anyway, this book still one of the best book I ever read. By the way, what is Mimpi-Mimpi Lintang? Read the book and you’ll find out. As usual, you are welcome to comment.
