How shall I start this novel's review?
Okay! Have you ever experience chasing after a train or a bus? Well, as fo me, I had chased MRT and buses before, so I know how it would feel.

And that's how would I say about this novel. It has the good storyline but in my opinion the author is in a rush to finish her 'masterpiece' so everything is just so straight forward.

Natasya and Hana are half-siblings; they share the same father but different mothers. And their characters are totally opposite from each other. Natasya is the 'good' one while Hana is the 'evil' one.. haha! Reminds me of Cinderella or in novel-wise, more or less like Siti Rosmizah's Lafazkan Kalimah Cintamu.

Ashraf, a lawyer is supposed to be Hana's boyfriend but when Hana managed to catch a bigger fish than Ashraf, Ashraf was crushed. Revengeful, he made sure he marries the sister, Natasya. Their father, Datuk Hasnol was furious when he found out Natasya is having a relationship with just a mere lawyer - due to an understanding created by Hana and taken advantage by Ashraf. So, Natasya married Ashraf and Datuk Hasnol no longer welcomes Natasya to his family.

As they move on with their lives, Natasya fell in love with Ashraf, knowing that Ashraf still love Hana. Ashraf, on the other hand couldn't explain his own feelings until one day, he told Natasya of his true feelings. They are living happily. When Datuk Hasnol's company was sued, Ashraf comes to the rescue and Datuk Hasnol in the end accepted Natasya and Ashraf back into his family. Hana eventually comes to her senses and as always, it comes to a happy ending for everyone.

But as I said, everything is so straight forward. It makes me wonder if life could be ever that smooth... oh well! It's worth the read, I guess.

My rating: 5/10
