    Ika NatassaAntologi RasaGramedia Pustaka Utama344 pages15 Homophobic pretentious and pompous Antologi Rasa renders the worst ualities you've often encountered in Ika Natassa's booksThe whole situation with most of Ika Natassa's books Antologi Rasa specifically is like Potemkin village Its gorgeous book cover is designed to deceive the readers to believe that its content is worth to read than it really is But this is just one part of façade Antologi Rasa is built upon intricate layer and layer of frontages the book cover; the plethora of trivia about The Rolling Stones' concert HG Wells' Time Machine F1 statistics; Keara's audacity loudness and her bad girl persona that even puts the old Awkarin the new Awkarin on the other hand rocks to a shame; the masculine points of view of Harris Ruly and Panji that are merely some dick measuring contest; pages and pages abundant with expensive and luxurious brand These frontages like it or not are there to hide something are there to hide the insecurity and fragility of the author that's subtly apparent there But on that later I used to think that books including fiction ones should be educational to their readers and that's why trivia is good the the merrier More trivia means educational And that's why you will still find some trite and unimportant trivia that's why it's called trivia in my early draft that I wrote when I was in junior high like what's the capital city of St Kitts Nevis? Boy I was wrong As I got older and by older I mean as I was in high school I realized that spewing out your knowledge just to make you look intelligent is not cool And breaking news? No one cares about your trivia In fact people don't like it unless they cram for Who Wants to be a Millionaire or Jeopardy I always wonder if Natassa's books still work without random facts or pretentious Latin phrases Well the answer is surprisingly yes It will be better probably But I also wonder if this is just her way to cover something When you really really read Antologi Rasa and if you can stand it in the first place of course you can sense how fragile and vulnerable Keara our main character is Since she is the only main female character who resonates with the author the most both are successful banker this thing keeps haunting my mind is this what the author actually feeling? Is Keara's hostility written to hide the author's vulnerability? Or do I just over psychoanalyze this? Will I get blocked after this? But in my humble opinion I think without those facts and super well to do character Antologi Rasa will be just another forgettable chicklit After all plot wise there's nothing special about the book Antologi Rasa still follows the same character and language template Can you believe that this is her third book that features female main character who works at a bank? I can because I believe that this is easier to write something close to your actual occupation This also explains why all the characters are rich and financially successful which has become Natassa's legacy in her upcoming works But I can also see why this book is popular it sells dream that only few of us can actually afford Well scratch that only few of Jakarta people can actually afford A few days back Twitter feed was filled with story about privileged people who casually say that their hard working attitude is the only recipe to their success that it's not hard to earn money and you are wrong if you earn it the hard way This tweet sent the public to an outcry but this experience opens people's mind about privilege Privileged is probably the adjective that suits the main characters of Antologi Rasa Keara Ruly and Harris They all can afford education abroad and even with their carefreeness they still can land a prestigious job at a multinational company Their perfection does not end there Keara is the example of Mary Sue trope that you beginner writers should avoid at all cost She's goddess her measurement is 36 24 36 she's beautiful she's rich she's party animal and she's allergic to cheap food as if her narration is not cringey and pompous enough I think her only weakness is just that she's prone to seasickness But the most annoying thing about Keara is how desperate Natassa to paint her as this perfect human being Her personality is inconsistent at one page she can complain about the shitty city hey it rhymes that she's stuck in at other page she suddenly became this compassionate woman The change of her character is really vomit inducing But this is just the beginning Harris' and Ruly's and Panji's point of view are unbearable to put it simply It's as if they tried to compete to see who can be a bigger dick further confirming my theory that they both actually have small dick despite Natassa's effort to convince me otherwise These guys try so hard to be masculine that it makes their transphobic and homophobic stance obvious Keara always pictures Ruly as a nice great religious man but his point of view seems to contradict her belief In a way I see Antologi Rasa as Natassa's way to fulfill her wildest dream Heck this is written to fulfill everyone's wildest dream Who doesn't want to be loved by three handsome muscular rich men? Although the story is not real this book that doesn't even pass the Bechdel test clearly a step back in this euality era confirms my theory that privileged people also cry in their Manolo Blahnik shoes and deserve to be loved under the roof of their expensive condominium in Pakubowono

    I love the cover But not a fan of the content It's a big city self centered girl's life And truth is I don't care about it

    Hookay this book is really confusing and not because it used three POVNaturally i always love Ika's books and I enjoyed it through fully but with this one i cheatedI read only the beginning until page 48 then i stopped and read it again on page 292 Why? Because reading this book was really like peeping into somebody else's mind Too many things inside it crowded with words memories rambling things and thousands of references I can not focusAnd too many italic words that made the journey reading this book a bumpy one like you can't read it smoothly for you'd always found pebble stones every here and there And not too mention too many English phrases or jokes or like I said references The language is really really REALLY gado gadoAnd there're also some parts in this book that make word 'pretentious' dancing in my headBut after all those things i can not say that i didn't like this book Even after i cheated i still like it i still adore Harris i still think Keara is one stupid bitch and Ruli is a miserable bastardAnd if Ika write any book i surely still going to buy it

    Dear Ika NatassaWhy in the world I give 2 stars?Well kelebihan cerita ini adalah diksinya yang membuat cerita ini terasa personal seolah kita mengenal dekat tokoh tokoh yang ada Sarkasme dan uote yang disertakan cukup bagus dan saya menyukainya Cerita ini juga mengajarkan kita bahwa it’s not always good to stereotyping everyone Prejudice lead us to a complicated and unnescessary missunderstandingNamun saya ilfil karena Ika menghabiskan beratus ratus halaman untuk memberi pesan yang sama “Oh I’m stuck in this unreuited love” “Oh I know I should get out from this misery but I can’t I just can’t” “Oh don’t ask me why I do this why I do that ‘cause I’m fcking screwed up” And I’m like “What seriously?”Keempat tokohnya sudah bekerja di perusahaan internasional bagaimana mungkin mereka tidak peka pada perasaan satu sama lain? Minimal ada satu atau dua yang bisa membaca situasi dong Dan dua womanizer takluk pada tokoh utama? Too much coincidence don’t you think?Saya juga bingung saat membaca sebuah halaman di novel ini yang setengahnya berisi daftar lagu yang dinyanyikan John Mayer di konser Manila I know how much the main character love John Mayer but if I want to download top songs of John Mayer I can Google it darling You don’t have to write the whole lists At first I was so interested of John Mayer because the main character praises his songs but then Ika keep repeating about it all over again Cut it out will ya?Have I mention about the ending? It’s the worstI can’t sympathize the characters Instead I pity them In a negative way I’m annoyed by their stupidity It’s boring And the only reason I read this story until the end is because I hate stopping in the middle of something not because this book is worth to readWell Ika’s fans might hate me for this I’m sorry if my words hurt anybody and yes there’s a uote saying ‘If you have nothing nice to say don’t say anything’ But if you truly know me you know that my intention is not to mock the writer Just because I dislike the story doesn’t mean I dislike the author too I simply trying to be honestTruly yoursdistressedbutterfly

    Weekend readI liked Divortiare so I did look forward to the release of this book Story wise despite flawed and sometimes self centered characters I find the story to be uite engaging In fact that's the author's best trait; she can always engage the readers in even the most mundane topic and make it feel personal and easy to relate toA few things I'd like to comment on the three main characters Keara Harris and Ruly are distinct enough for readers to be able to differentiate them through different narratives but most of them are too similar to the characters from the author's previous books Perhaps it's because they have the same job lifestyle and preferences but I wish I'd seen a different side and personality Reading the book also sometimes feels like seeing things through the perspective of the writer which is where the line between a character and the writer's voice blursAnother thing is with the length of the story which drags at some point and makes me skip a couple of pages Some chapters serve the same function and deliver similar results and I personally think if they were cut the plot could've been tighter and the pace would've been fasterThat being said it's an interesting book with a nice concept and execution

    Finally done with this book and I feel so warmMetropop banget tapi buku ini berhasil bikin sudut pandang dari masing masing tokoh terasa nyata Ceritanya asyik walaupun pas baca rasanya dibuat kayak sprint dan susah buat berhenti Permainan konflik batin yang hidup yang buat buku ini makin menarik Endingnya cukup manis but yeah it didn't same with what I was thinking aboutThis is the first time I read Ika Natassa's book and eventhough I don't really like metropop novel I enjoy this book So much

    3 years of waiting is over Antologi Rasa finally released 3 years of expecting from Ika Natassa out of the 2 thumbs up Divortiare Somewhat I could smell this book could be a blast starting from last year while Ika keep tweeting about making a new book In the meanwhile she did also tweeting that she only wrote if not tweeting LoLAnd my guess is trueThis book is hell of a book Ika is putting the reader through point of few of each main characters which is something new to me lead me only deep diving into one's character I enjoyed being the swiftful Keara being the dumb Ruly being the dumber Harris even being the womanizer PanjiTwisted plot twisted end becomes surreal yet so clear Because while reading it it was not Keara whose vomiting and lay head to Ruly's chest It was me It was not Harris whose being slapped by Kiara after returned from Toasted Box It was me Too bad Ika didn't describe the f scene between Harris and Keara from Harris'es point of view D Oke yang pengen scene ini dibuat 1 chapter khusus make a line behind me PReading Antologi Rasa could really make me jump into the scene Somewhat I could hear the roaring engines out of F1 race I could see ocean of crowds waving to John Mayer even I could even smell the hustle bustle in Pasar Sukowati Perhaps because except John Mayer's concert I did also travel to those places But I also think this because she cleverly put those scenes into wordsWitty languages somewhat make this novel fun to be read Far from boring Very Ika Natassa This novel made my eyebrows raised Made me put sulky sly smile out of my face Made me even laugh hardly Apart from the novel's main character is a bankers just like Ika's two previous novels well to be concluded 2 thumbs is not enough I give 4 instead A must read book for those who love metropop novels Bravo Ika

    I once loved this book so much I read it when I was in high school and you know if i was here that time I would give this book 4 or even 5 stars for this book But people change and I've changed After re reading it again after a few years my feelings and ratings toward this book starts to change tooI decided to re reading this book because it's going to be a movie soon I just forget things that happen on this book So yeah I end up picking up this book once again You know what? Surprisingly I don't like it as much as I did back then in high school There are so many part of the book that annoyed me so much First the jokes that the main guy character Harris tells people around him about His jokes are totally sexiest he is a jerk he love sleeping around and treating girls like shit He is cliche bad boy character that yeah probably he would change himself for you No honey People don't change over night Although he was my character crush when I was a high school But he isn't that attractive any for me now Second the main girl character named Keara Ohkay ohkay I do not understand her I don't know what happened to her and why she did some idk impulsive stuffs that make herself in trouble Is loving someone could be this stupid? That was the first thing that pop up on my mind while I was reading this book and anything she did in the storyAfter all it is a good story and you can just enjoy it on your Sunday morning But it's lack of character development that make readers understand what the characters did and why they did
