بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
It does feels good to be immersed in the fiction world. I read Fangirl written by Rainbow Rowell and it makes me fall in love with fiction writing. Okay I love reading fiction but never really good at writing it, so yeah to major in English literature probably not a good idea for me. Sometimes when you have passion in something, doesn't necessarily mean you're good at it. I once wished that I could at least write a book, but that dream long gone. I'm easily excited of something and easily bored of it too. Too bad, I hope I'm not like that with people. Otherwise, I will end up not marrying anyone. Okay why are we talking about marriage now? ... It's not we, it's me. Where were we? Oh the book.
I'm so in love with Levi (one of the characters). From the start, I never thought he likes Cath (the main character), because he's just been hanging out and studying with Cath's roommate in their dorm room and he's extremely gentleman by offering to walk Cath back from the library at night. Like, he came from their dorm room to the library just to walk Cath home (read: room). Aww I love that he try to protect Cath. He also drive Cath home that is miles away when she had family emergency. Well that actually seems more like a brother but who cares, that's what gentleman do, right?
I just don't know how to put this together but he's sweet. Go and read that book. At least if he doesn't suit your taste, he does suit mine. When he finally confessed that he likes Cath, everything makes sense from the way he acts towards Cath. I just love that he tried to win Cath's heart through manner. Manner maketh man, right? Usually, this kind of book has the guy character that try to win the girl through direct flirting, touching here and there which emm not preferable. Yeah I know they're not Islam haha but still for a Muslim who read that kind of book would find that guy as 'takleh-buat-laki' kind of guy. But Levi, yeah I would consider him to be my husband hahahahah okay just kidding.
Oh and I like that the author makes Levi as a student who cares about his study and didn't potray him as university student who loves hanging out and partying, flirting, skipping classes and get bad grades. He keep saying that his not a book person but he records and listens to the lectures. He understands the courses better by doing that, which I think that's pretty good idea. He find ways to success, not merely giving up. Noted that; whatever weaknesses you have, saying 'I don't know' or giving up are not the options. Find alternatives or you can learn. Okay aku ni dah macam bedah buku apahal?
Not to forget, the main character - Cath. Can you see how obsessed I am with Levi that I put main character in second place hahaha this is so wrong. I mean like, she's the main character you know. Okay, about Cath, I'm pretty much like her. She has twin, Wren who went to the same university. She felt betrayed when Wren choose to stay in separate room at the university after all those years before they've been spending together. (Twins can relate) Like me, I have a sister who are just a year older and we're very close. I did asked her to choose IIUM after her matriculation but too bad IIUM didn't accept students from matriculation. Cath didn't want to meet new people because she's way too obsessed with her online fanfiction friends. Disclaimer; I'm not like that. Oookayyy maybe a little bit. I love spilling out everything through writing instead of talking to someone because nobody's there to listen anywhere hahaha nobody wants to listen to somebody else's problems. Nobody. People loves to talk huh but they never want to listen. Seriously dude, you have to listen if you want people to listen to you.
Oh and the similar part, which is my favourite part is, Cath has pear-shaped body hahaha. Dear Rainbow Rowell, I love you for making me believe that people with pear-shaped body could actually be attractive to some people. Well of course, it takes the right eyes to see and what important is, the heart. Lawa tapi hati busuk buatpa? Tapi ni yang tak lawa and hati pun tak berapa nak wangi ni acano? Okay bawak diri kejap ...
I'm done, I thought this is just going to be short but apparently, it's not. Feel free not to read this, it's boring I know. I can understand and review a book, but I can barely understand what I read in Quran. I hope I could understand the Quran the way I easily understand the book. It's a shame to be good in worldly matters other than your religion. I'm trying, and let's all keep trying. I'm not even good at critical thinking but I waste my time reviewing and understanding the characters duhhh. Now this review ended up with miserable feeling ...
