Title: Baju Pengantin Mak Andam Author: Areila Sahimi Publisher: Kaki Novel No. of Pages: 524 pages
Before typing in this entry, I was thinking (very hard) what was the last malay novel I read before and honestly, I couldn't remember (still thinking very hard!).
Baju Pengantin Mak Andam (BPMA) - it is the novel I just bought yesterday and today, while babysitting my grandma, I managed to finish it. Yup! I basically stayed at home and read 1 whole novel in a day.
I couldn't remember when was the last time I enjoy reading a book without crying. I mean, mostly malay novels are too emotional and most of them make me cry but with BPMA, I cried because it was soo funny! I have to salute the author. This book is one book that is a combination of funny + a nice story to go with and I enjoy reading it so very much.
The synopsis of this story?? Hmmm... I think I lost touch writing synopsis - for this book anyway. Don't get me wrong. The story is not that complicated (trust me! I had read some complicated novels) but somehow, my synopsis won't do any justice to the novel.
However, I can give to links if you interested to read some of the chapters of the book, here it goes...
A daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a cousin, an avid reader who is petite, loud, teaser, cute, sweet, moody, kind, sarcastic, humorous, humble, adventurous, ! Yea! I got it all but bear in mind, not all of these qualities you will see at the same time! =P
