It’s been a while since I posted in Books category. Well, it’s not meant that I didn’t read books lately, but my reading list wasn’t something I would recommend to others. And also I usually read free historical romance e-book (hey, it was easy and lovely to read, must -always- ended with happy ever after). One day, when I was listened one of my fave broadcast in H*rdRock FM(Provocative Proactive), the host, amazing Panji Pragiwaksono (click here to visit his web), mention his free e-book. The title made me tingle. Nasional.Is.Me.
Then I decided I must read those e-book. Though it took me few days to make it happen (just to download it) and a few more days to finally read it. Basically, the book is story about the author story itself, how he felt about Indonesia, his/my/our lovely country. Well, in short, I felt a thousand feeling inside of me when I read it. There’s a cry, ashamed, proud, laugh, and another complicated emotion.
In one of the chapter, he told us about some amazing city and place in Indonesia. And I was proud that time, because I also had opportunity visited some amazing places (though it wasn’t same places that he mention). In that short time of my adventure (sometime in remote area), I met extraordinary people, from the weird one to the greatest one, from the very nicest stranger people to the wicked and malicious one. Those adventure made me realize that Indonesia is wonderful or I would like quote someone line (forgot who said it, just read the book, he mention about it) that Indonesia is “Dangerously Beautiful”
It get into my head that I really love my country, my homeland, my motherland. I love this country more after a short period adventure in neighbor country one year ago (Well, my first going abroad journey was when I was nothing but just a silly teenager who never mind to think about nationalism).
So guys, whoever read this blog, particularly this post please spent a few hours to read it. Just click the book and download it. Hope U would enjoy it like I do. Btw, the book written in Indonesian.
