My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

Book Review: Hadirnya Cinta

Submitted by on August 25, 2010 – 16:33No Comment

This is one unbelievable fiction! I remember when I was in high school, the teacher always tell me, “When you write a story, make sure the characters are believable.” It’s the exactly same thing I would like to tell writer Pitteriah Abdullah.I’m sorry, I just don’t believe in your characters.

Hadirnya Cinta is a romance story between Yasmin Nadilla and Daniel Ezairy. She is an adventurous girl who is on her last adventure before marrying the guy of her dreams while he is the playboy that graces the front page of newspapers almost every other day. When fate put them together on an island with danger at hand, Daniel finds himself falling in love for the very first time to a girl nothing like the way he imagined her to be. Yasmin is a little too contemporary and conservative compared to his dream choice. But he is in love and there is nothing he could do with it.

In this story, you will read how Daniel turns from a playboy to a gentleman overnight; How he who once slept with many girls and didn’t pay attention to religion suddenly changed to the total opposite in less than 24 hours. And then you will say to yourself, “That man doesn’t exist.” Because no matter how hard love strikes, changes don’t happen in a wink. It takes time. It absorbs energy. It requires cultivation.

The same goes to Yasmin. She doesn’t like Daniel. In fact, in the first few chapters, she detests him. Yet when she is forced to marry someone just to please her friend, she marries him. It’s at this part of the story that my mind was like… “What? Where is the realistic element in this chapter?”

In short, Hadirnya Cinta is too fiction to be true. I would rather pick up another book if I have only knew.
