Imit so he better wrap the story up The conflict in the last part just kind fhangs there with no development whatsoever beyond a few short paragraphs I didn t even realize there s a conflict until 34 in Inserting a new conflict at the end f the book is pretty unusual so I understand if the author wants it to be done uickly but if that s the case then why does he insert it in the first place It s completely unnecessary and throws the reader ffThere s also this bizarre subplot involving a minor character that does not have anything to do with the plot whatsoever The pages for that I think can efficiently used instead to flesh ut the story but alas it does not happen The third part is the most boring f them all part A Philosophy of Cinematic Art of the reason why this takes me a long time to finish after whooshing through the middle partIt is a good book and it is a good story but it s marketed everywhere as a love story and I didn t really feel the whole romance angle As a war novel it s good it s great I would ve given it a four star But you have to call anrange an The Potato Hack: Weight Loss Simplified orange and as a romance novel it s very unsatisfying This coupled withther plot issues and pointless padding reduces the grade to White House Years (Henry Kissingers Memoirs only three star It s a gift from Lia kecil so special since it shutted meff from the mundane life for ne and a half day to finish this masterpiece It s so addicted I read it for couple f times Good novel from Indonesian priest Repot juga kalau Ki Dalang harus melakonkan hikayat kacau Klenting Kuning dan Gatutkaca I really love how the characters grow in this st Ok I need time to process everything I have read All the details birds were very much appreciated The contrasting atmosphere between Teto and Atik like darkness and light despair and hope Argh I just don t have the words to describe everything Hands down the best Indonesian novel I have read so far in my life Supposedly a story Scab of both spiritual and physical conflict during Indonesia s war for independence How two friends find themselvesn In a World Created by a Drunken God opposing sides and the effectn their relationship through the years My English translation Indo No Kao on Kindle had many errors and I found the writing somewhat stilted In brief this book is about childhood sweethearts who end upn pposite sides f the Indonesian revolution Setadewa and Atik are both connected to Javanese royalty and in childhood their paths cross in the court Later Setadewa joins the Dutch colonial army to fight the Japanese during World War II which puts him after the war in Giant Peach Yodel opposition to the Indonesian forces fighting for independence Atikn the Sinai and Zion other hand becomes a young woman who burns with the zealf a just cause The flame that had been set free by Soekarno s freedom movement burned brightly within herThere are some interesting concepts explored here but unfortunately it just isn t a very good book There s a lot f icky weird discussion f gender and desire Atik s womanhood I knew was as vital as the tropical forests that yearn for the dark rain clouds and the masculine thunder that heralds the coming f the monsoon to which I made the note are you sure you re going to be able to deliver that monsoon lover boy including the conflation f romantic and sibling love seen in Sitti Nurbaya Kasih Tak Sampai and This Earth f Mankind Possibly the weirdest passage for me was when Setadewa and Atik encounter each ther unexpectedly while n pposite sides f the revolution Seta looks into her eyes and is frightened at first but afterwards he thinks to himself No her shining black eyes were not the minous ends f two gun barrels but rather the dark nipples f a mother s breasts And I at that moment was not in reality a soldier at all but a child a baby crying Annual Report of the Officers of the Town of Holderness, N.

Adapted from my blog pauetdevieblogspotcomSo I finally finished this book It s been what four months since I borrowed it And I Ready to Restore: The Layman's Guide to Christian Counseling only finished it now Lovely The school library is going to rake in lotsf moneyThis book is well it s not difficult per se I just had a hard time Ready to Restore of getting into it The book had the double sinf a written in 1st person and b contains a lot f sentimental Indonesian esue romance that I don t really like Romance is fine but Indonesian authors tend to have this style that whatever romance they wrote is going to end up really sappy andor cheesy Since most ld novels are written in 1st person my most hated POV and have these sappy romance that my cold heart does not understand you can see why I don t really read them muchBut as a book connoisseur I have to read a lot Shieldmaiden Book 1: Quest for the Jewel of books crossing genre and time even if that means I have to getut Traficada: Diário de uma Escrava Sexual (Portuguese Edition) of my comfort zone Or spend four months reading a 300 page book Okay So The review RightThe Weaverbirds Indonesian Burung Burung Manyar tells the storyf Setadewa Teto and Larasati Atik Teto is the son Encounter at Buff Ledge: A UFO Case History of a KNIL soldier KNIL being the private armyf the Dutch colonist in Indonesia and an Indo mother Atik is still Teto s cousin Carte touristique : Corse Sud : Ajaccio - Bonifacio of some sort her mother is the adopted daughterf Teto s father s uncle Teto s father comes from a blue blooded native Javanese family but he likes being Dutch During the Japanese Regarde, c'est maman ! occupation Teto s father joined the rebellion and was subseuently caught Teto s mother was kept as a mistress by a Japanesefficial to protect Teto s father and Teto was left in the care The Bricklayer of Atik s family Teto vowed that he will avenge his parents and joined KNILnce he was ld enough When the Japanese left however Teto was faced by the Republican factions that is people who wanted and have declared Indonesia s independence Teto viewed the Republicans as ex collaborators with Japan and thus viewed Indonesia s independence as not something that they earn but something that is given by Japan Not to mention after the war the fate f his parents is still unknown Thus begins Teto s uest to help his homeland and find the truth about his parents Structurally the novel itself is divided into three parts a prologue Vinny: Victory Over Drugs, Death, and Degradation of some sorts that tells the storyf Teto and Atik s childhood a middle part consisting the bulk The Occult Detector (The Semi Dual Stories Book 1) of the action and an epilogue I find the concept refreshing because Indonesian novelsften have this black and white view f the world that the good guys will always be good and the bad guys will always be bad This is a boring not to mention unrealistic point f view Pioneer Jews: A New Life in the Far West of the world The good guys is not always good and the bad guys are not always bad So it s really refreshing to see a flipped perspective the Republicans became the antagonist and the colonizing Dutch became the protagonistMaybe it s becausef this I find the middle part to be the most exciting Eating Thin for Life: Food Secrets Recipes from People Who Have Lost Weight Kept It Off of the three It details Teto s struggle to reconcile his visionf Indonesia and the Indonesia he s seeing right now Teto does not go to war because he hates Indonesia he loves Indonesia and wants to free her from the Republicans whom he viewed as Japanese collaborators Teto s mother freuently becomes a sort f allegory for Indonesia herself in the eyes f Teto she was a happy housewife in the Dutch period We, the People only to become a trapped mistress in the Japaneseccupation and later institutionalized after the war Indonesia too according to Teto is subjugated but happy during the Dutch period trapped in a broken promise during the Japanese Single occupation and has become insane in her independenceTeto s views and behaviors is a departure from the usual Indonesian heroes that is usually portrayed as calm and polite even in the midstf gunfire Here Teto is brash and foul mouthed but he had the heart f a lion and a firm principle taught by his father He s an intelligent boy he knew in the middle that what he s doing what KNIL and him are doing is basically worthless but still he fought because his father taught him not to run away from a fight And by God he didn t even if it meant sacrificing his nly chance n being with the girl he lovedI expected Atik to be ne dimensional and flatter than a cardboard but she was uite fleshed ut which is a nice surprise Atik too is struggling that she may r may not have feelings for Teto her childhood friend slash distant cousin and a traitor to the Republic Atik herself works for the Republic even becoming an aide for the then Foreign affairs minster She has to learn to reconcile her loyalty for her motherland and her affection to an agent f the enemyThe prose is wonderful and this is ne Showa, 1939-1944: A History of Japan of the few first person POVs novel that I actually like YB Mangunwijaya conveys Teto s feelings so perfectly that you can t help to root a little bit for the Dutch ifnly to give Teto his happy ending The changing The Book Of The Superiority Of Dogs Over Many Of Those Who Wear Clothes of POVs is something I severely dislike in most modern novels since it s just hella confusing but Rama Mangun as he s affectionately called uses it so efficiently to portray the characters feelings to let us see the two sidesf the coin that I can t complain about itMy problem with this novel is that we really don t see Atik and Teto s relationship developing properly Literally 70% f their screentime are spent apart from each ther We Rescuing a Werewolf only get to see their interaction in the beginning and in the end they rarely interact in the middle part When I first read Teto declaring his love to Atik in his inner monologue I was like bruh Younly met this girl for two months tops It feels Making Women Pay odd to me because theynly met each GloomCookie other for a short time in their childhood and it didn t really make sense for bothf them to be violently in love with each ther They talked about their closeness a lot but we don t actually see how close they are r how their closeness develops in the first place As individual characters they are well developed but as a pairing they are notI also have issues with the length The Jesuit of the first part and the third part The first part should be longer and the third part should be shorter The ending is firm and resolute but the execution isff There s a lot f padding in the third part but the last pages seems rushed as if the author has a page limit and he s nearing that Novel Burung burung Manyar dapat dibaca sebagai bentuk proyek

S narration Teto during his childhood Then the female protagonist Atik was introduced It was a happy rather funny childhood f army and royal family A few chapters later things turned grim since the Japanese Rim of the Pit occupation began The Japaneseccupation grew strong hatred towards Japan for Teto Atik s family also felt the same hatred but they were also learned the civilized side You Can Beat the Odds of Japanese cultureutside the fascist military in the World War II through music and movies They also realized how the Javanese royal s tradition also has its civilized and cruel side Indonesia will not be a cruel independent state Atik The National Revolution After the declaration f Independence Day Teto became a lieutenant f NICA whereas Atik became a pro revolution who adores Soekarno Sutan Sjahrir and the rest Stripes of All Types of the Republicans Despite their growing love they keeppposing each ther s political stance In Teto s view Indonesia needs some time to mature as a nation before they gain its independence He detests the Republicans who seemed like hypocrites who beyed the Japanese to gain their wn will through political maneuver In Atik s view it was like now r never Life free Baltimore Catechism No. 2 or die hard You have to be able to read between the printed lines Otherwise you are just a mere captivef the texts Atik In this period we were introduced to Verbruggen a Dutch Mayor who proposed Teto s mother in the past Mic manual de campanie electorală obviously rejected Having brought Teto to become a lieutenant in significantly short time and took an influence in Teto s character development he becamene The Big Book of Maker Skills: Tools Techniques for Building Great Tech Projects of the important characters in this book He has a foul mouth but a fair amountf wisdom in contrast We were also introduced to Karjo and Samsu the Setankopor The Briefcase Demon who will be shown again in the next period This period was ended in the midst f the devastating result f the two Politionele Acties Agresi Militer Belanda that brought both Indonesia and the Dutch military force much grief and loss as shown One Life, One Incarnation: Beautiful Bones on both Teto and Atik s side Meanwhile they began to realize how they long for eachther However the harsh reality kept drifting them apart much that Atik began to reconsider her long wait for Teto s proposal The Early New Order There is uite much time skip from the previous period to the last period After the Roundtable Conference Teto uitted from NICA and studied Mathematics in Europe to be a computer expert In addition he gained a new nationality which was not mentioned explicitly in the book though I assume that he became a Dutch He became the Production Manager Just Joking of a multinationalil company In this period he visited Indonesia for the third time since he got the new nationality He visited his new best friend John Brindley an European Ambassador who keeps pet snakes in his garden Afterwards he attended Atik s dissertation defense Accepting Atik s family s invitation Teto decided to stay at their place for a while How will Teto and Atik s relationship develop after years f separation and pposing ideals In this period Teto seems to already calmed down significantly He grew up and accepted the loss he has been experienced since ever He also began to accept the changing era and acknowledged his Times of Trouble (A Time Travel Anthology) own mistakes Like the rejected male weaverbird he rebuild his nest his life and dignity after passing through the phasef anger and denial where he furiously destroyed his rejected nest ideals Beside showing the societal and political aspects that were BENAAMI occuring in the corresponding periods Romo Mangun the author s nickname also took us back to experience the changing ecological conditionf Java in the 40s to the 70s The scene where Atik fed the birds and watched their behavior told me how diverse the city birds in Java back then It shows how srigunting jalak gelatik manyar and kutilang were still commonly wild in the cities in the 40s The diversity gradually decreased and finally the wild weaverbirds became rare in the 70s Nowadays there is mostly sparrows and ccasionally a few kinds f city birds roaming in the cities f Java The ther kinds The Real Bluebeard: The Life of Gilles de Rais of birds are mostly kept as caged pets today There are many things that I like from this book I like how I got to refresh my memoryn the history Stay on Your Toes, Maggie Adams! of Indonesia through the three periods shown in this book Even insteadf refreshing my memory I felt like diving those periods experiencing the events ccurred there from the Republicans and the Dutch armies side The narration style f which I assume adopted the way people talk in the corresponding periods really helped to live up the atmosphere I also like how this book shows how people from different sides in this book perceive the three periods that were used as time settings It taught us to sympathize with those different sides even if they are commonly seen as the antagonists This book ends beautifully leaving a bittersweet feeling that seemed to have accumulated since the second period However it felt a bit Night Train To Cherbourg: A Joszef Kiraly: Gentleman, Vampire Mystery odd when I realize how Karjo and Samsu was not further involved in the story What is the purposef their presence Disowned other than to describe the society and political issues in their corresponding periods Overall I enjoyed reading this book a lot I would love to recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical literary fictions The international editionf this book The Weaverbirds was published by Lontar Foundation in 1991 Unfortunately the edition is already considered rare now I hope Lontar Foundation will consider to reprint this book in the future so that this book can be accessible to readers Anyway I have not encountered footnotes in fictions for ages until I began to read this book Is it because I have not been an avid reader for some time until recently Comptia Security+ Sy0-301 Exam Cram or it is indeed already uncommon nowadays I went into this with zero expectations because postcolonial lit is just not really my jam but this novel surprised me I must say that Teto was annoying as hell in parts 1 and 2 but Atik was annoying in part 3 so that was a bitf a shame but despite my initial reluctance as well as general reluctance because I have to read this for my minor I kind Marco Polo: A Photographer's Journey of wanted to continue reading So I m gonna say 35 stars andnce again I m uite looking forward to discussing this in the seminar Good book. Bekerja dalam angkatan perang BelandaMenjelang akhir novel terdapat kejutan yang menggelitik Teto atau terbangkitkan jiwa nasionalismenya dengan menjadi relawan membongkar kecurangan perusahaan tempatnya bekerja yang merugikan Indonesi.
