Book Review: Gantung


Salam all. Hi.
I hope you're doing well.

So today's post I wanna do a review of Gantung by Nadia Khan.

This novel is published in December 2013 and this is my second time reading it. Yes, I can re-read this book even 10 times. lol.

I feel like reading the past and present at the same time, it was a lil bit confusing at first - so when you read this book you really need to catch the whole thing from the first or you will re-read it again to capture the whole thing when you just know what is actually happened.

The superb plot twists are so mind blowing! I don't know but I just like it.

Basically the story is about friendship and this is not a love story. They are four of them, Gibbs, Ray, Kj and Troll who are best friends. They have a promise/code: no one for all, just all for one. and yes they treat girls like object. They can't have an exclusive relationship with a girl, they must share the girl till one of them breaks the code then strange things start to take place.

This book is for matured audience I guess because it is a lil bit adult-y, I'm not saying your brain will turns to blue or green or any colours - it is not that extreme tho, but just parents, be careful on what your kids should read.

It is absolutely satisfying but you know I'm kinda frustrated by the ending, because of this one character - it almost made me cry cause I like Gibbs to be real somehow, and Kj, he is a cool guy. So I would like to give 4.5 out of 5.

I really really like this book a lot, and it is one of my favourite malay books - I just read fixi books. hehe.

Well I don't want to spoil but just trust me it is a worth reading if you're looking for something different.

Leave me a comment what do you think about this book if you have read and maybe some suggestions of fixi books?

Till then, keep well.
Ciao.

Eh samala kita! Saya pun suka baca Gantung ni and character yg meninggalkan kesan kepada saya adalah Ray sebab dia mcm misteri hahaha. Gantung akan keluar novel yang second Gantung 2. But I'm not sure bila keluar. Another fixi book yg saya rasa best Gelap by Ariff Adly. Serious best! Selamat membaca.
