30 Days Book Challenge: Day 9

– A Book You Thought You Wouldn’t Like But Ended Up Loving –

Well, this is rather hard question. If I don’t think I wouldn’t like it why I waste my time while there are so many other books? There are books I thought I wouldn’t like, but ended up thinking it was okay instead of loving it. One of it is Twilight, but only the first book. Then D.I.A (and Indonesian novel), and then Icylandar, and then…. Wait a minute, there is a book that I thought I wouldn’t like but ended up loving it!! Laskar Pelangi!! I forget that I was not that eager to read the book. The book is my sister’s, so it is not me wanted to reading it, it just there and I don’t have enough resource to get my own book yet. So, that is, Laskar Pelangi.

– Most Overrated Book –

Twilight, of course. Most of the fan have a very biased opinion. They just haven’t read many books. I read the first book, it was okay, and I tried to read the second. I was wondering why I was able to complete that, oh yeah, I was in hospital and have nothing to do. The second book it too forced. It doesn’t need to be a main story but it made as a main story. Okay, I might be also have a biased opinion, but yeah, peoples should read more books before telling me twilight is a good story.

Another overrated is Harry Potter. No, it isn’t bad. It was good, really. It is just overrated. After you read a better book, you can’t idolize Harry Potter as before, and  pity who can’t move on. The book is good, really, but don’t make the idolizing made your opinion biased so you would not think there will be no other books better. I would like to say Harry Potter is a beginner’s book. Books to welcome people to the written world of the fantasy.

– Most Underrated Book –

Hmm. I don’t know. I only read fantasy, and almost every books I read whether already famous, or famous after I read (it does happen with Golden Compass). I would like to answer with Mistborn, but it is going to have a movie and a games, I wouldn’t say that underrated. I think I will answer with Indonesian Fantasy Fiction (fanfic). Such as Ther Melian, Icylandar, and many other (I have only read that two though). They have potential, and Indonesian fanfic will keep improving, I think.
