Title: Jodoh atau Cinta
Author: Iman Nizrina
No. of Pages: 507 pages
Publisher: Kaki Novel Enterprise

Jodoh atau Cinta is a recently published novel and when I read the synopsis of the book from the net, I was so eager to buy and read it.

Initially, I was so engrossed reading it but somehow, after 3/4 of the book, I got bored. Why? Because it's too cheesy romantic. Don't get me wrong! I'm a die hard fan of romantic but somehow I lost interest in the last few chapters of the novel. Maybe my hormones was not into that 'romantic mode' or maybe because the characters in the novel never finish fighting....

Other thing that made me bored reading this book is the sentences and the grammers. I don't know whether it's the editorial mistakes or I just don't understand Malaysian standard grammer. But I think their grammer doesn't different much from the other Malaysian novels, are they?

Well, I wouldn't say that Jodoh atau Cinta is 100% not worth reading... it is! As I said, it must be my 'unromantic mode' that made me lost it.

And despite all those fighting, arguing, it has an happy ending... which everyone wants, right?

The synopsis, you can read it from the author's blog. Just click on the author's name.

Out of 10 stars, I would give it 6.

salam Fiz,

oh no!! what did i just done? hehe. I'm writing my honest opinion.. hehe. If you don't want to buy it, borrow from someone who has this novel. Only then you can know whether it's worth buying or not.

You know what people always said, if you want something so bad, go for it and go on with your life with no regrets ;)
