Sasya’s WIshful Wednesday {5}


Setelah hampir satu bulan sekarat di atas kasur, akhirnya saya kembali dengan Wishful Wednesday! Yeay!

Jadi, kabar buruk yang sudah berlalu.. Selama hampir satu bulan kemarin saya jadi pelanggan tetap puskesmas Jagir. Bagiamana tidak, satu bulan saja sudah hampir lima kali saya ke dokter, kalo ditambah dengan bulan desember kembarin satu bulan saya sudah mengeluarkan uang satu juta kali hanya untuk berobat yang lebih dari tujuh kali. Ckckck.

Mari kita move on dari cerita yang sudah berlalu itu dan fokus ke WW saya kali ini.

Jadi, kemarin hari Selasa sempat blog walking dan nyasar ke suatu random blog (saya lupa blognya apa, sungguh) tapi saya ingat sekali reviewan bukunya. Dan, berita baiknya.. saya tergiur dengan bukunya 😀

Un Lun Dun by China Miéville

Un Lun Dun

is the story of Deeba, whose friendship with her schoolmate Zanna takes her life in a wholly unexpected direction when Zanna learns, though a series of bizarre hints and occurrences, that she is “The Shwazzy”—or, in the mixed-up language of the world she’s intended to save, The Chosen One. Although Deeba is bewildered and frightened by the odd turn her friend’s life is taking, she bravely accompanies her, even as the girls’ other friends abandon them. Deeba’s loyalty keeps her at Zanna’s side on a midnight adventure which takes the girls from their London housing project into a mysterious and bizarre alternate world: Un Lun Dun, or UnLondon. As they make their way through the treacherous streets of the abcity, where things that are discarded, lost or forgotten in London find new life, Zanna is hailed as the long-prophesied “Shwazzy” by locals desperate to escape the Smog, an evil entity which is waging war on the inhabitants of the city. Although Zanna is overwhelmed by her new importance at first, she eventually begins to embrace her role as UnLondon’s savior—until the Smog strikes back, rendering her help-less. Along with the city’s residents, Deeba reels with the shock of this turn of events; unlike them, however, Deeba is able to think and act outside the dictates of the so-called prophecy. With her friends in danger, she rises to the challenge of out-thinking the Smog and its confederates and her ultimate triumph is, therefore, the result of courage and common sense, not fate or prophecy. With lives both in London and UnLondon hanging in the balance, Deeba’s ingenuity and sense of personal responsibility make her a truly unique heroine.

And All I could say was.. WOW! ITS FANTASY AGAIN! And I really can’t wait for this book to finally come to my hands.

It’s London and all. Hehe…

Tapi saya research kayaknya gak banyak yang tertarik dengan buku ini, menilai dari sedikitnya review indo di google. Ah, sudahlah yang penting saya pengen baca 😀

 Anyway, bagi yang pingin ikutan wishful wednesday, bisa berkunjung di sini [perpus kecil]

Salam sehat!–Walau sakit
