Errr… don’t know what to say…

I don’t know how to classified it either!

Untuk buku anak-anak, saya kaget melihat beberapa aspek tentang kematian terasa begitu mudah di sini. Paman Montgomery meninggal. It shit but it’s told as an easy thing! Somehow, it reminds me of Edgar & Ellen dan The Addams Family. Tapi dibanding kedua terakhir itu, yang ini berhasil membuat saya bergidik. Saya membayangkan gimana anak-anak kecil yang membaca buku ini mendengarkan seksama tentang kelakuan Count Olaf dengan alat-alat tajamnya, dan tentang bagaimana ia dengan mudahnya membunuh Paman Monty, dan bagaimana mereka dengan mudahnya melakukan all the stuff sementara mayat paman mereka terbaring kaku di mobil dokter?! Call me weird, but it’s make me feel worst. Childs should not read this.

Tapi untuk buku remaja-dewasa, yeah, it back to the plot bunnies. It’s not well organized, but maybe that’s the way the writer want to told. Tapi saya suka banget halaman 145-146 di mana ada kata ‘sangat sangat sangat sangat sangat sangat …………….” hingga sepanjang satu halaman. It’s really catch the focus. I want to write something like that somehow in somewhere story.

So?

I said I don’t know what to say!
I don’t know how I rate it either!
First time I feel so blank.

Yeah, rate it yourself.
