Sang Pemimpi (The Dreamer) is a second book of Laskar Pelangi tetralogy (The Rainbow Troops). The novel is written by adored Indonesian author, Andrea Hirata.

It tells a story about Ikal (Andrea Hirata himself), Arai, and Jimbron. Ikal, a smart and popular student in the school, befriended kind-hearted Jimbron and his cousin Arai. Arai is the main protagonist of the novel, the dreamer, the visionary, who always think for others first before himself.

After finishing secondary school, the trio went

"Dream on, then God will embrace your dreams." - Andrea Hirata

'Sang Pemimpi' by Andrea Hirata is a tetralogy of the novel 'Laskar Pelangi' which tells about Ikal and Arai who have dreams of being able to continue their studies at the Univesite de Paris, Sorbonne, France. In the beginning, that sibling (from another parent) were motivated by their teacher in high school, Mr. Belia, who told about the university in France. The poverty suffered by the two brothers didn't prevent them from sticking

As written on the title, this is “novel yang menggugah semangat” (a novel that sparks hope, or is generally inspiring). This novel portrays hope and dreams, at the intersection of poverty and social issues. As Ikal said, “What’s the point of me studying a binomial theory to count infinite numbers, while what’s infinite for me is the impossibility to continue my study beyond high school?” he added, “Tell God about your dream, so that He will laugh at it!” (page 145) 💰

Moreover, Andrea successfull

Great continuation of the Rainbow Troops/Laskar Pelangi. The struggles of the characters continue, however, this book focuses on the Indonesian dream. Again, Hirata succeeds in accurately depicting Indonesian life.

So motivating. I feel so much more grateful about the little things in life like my privilege of going to school, comfort of being at my home and so on. It thought me not to stop dreaming and keep on working hard. I love this book. Definitely my all time favourite.

usually write a review of Indonesian's books in Bahasa Indonesia, but in this case, I really want THE WHOLE WORLD to know this novel.
Despite the fact that I havent read Laskar Pelangi yet, which is the first novel written by Andrea Hirata (this one is his 2nd), but I didnt have a hard time understanding the plot. This book tells a story of the writer when he was still a High School student in Belitong. With a strong Melayu influence, Andrea tells his story unlike any other.

I think this book is very unusual and good.
It is because in this book tells about how a student had a dream and strive to realize the dream of Ikal and Arai. They never relentless and unyielding.Despite the many hurdles that must be passed but they remain optimistic. They are true friends who help each other. They also came from a modest family. But Ikal have a dream to go to paris.

Never say never, never stop to believe, never stop to dream is a major theme of this second book of Laskar Pelangi Tetralogi.

If "Laskar Pelangi" has made me wept, this has made me amused. You guys must find Jimbron here, which you might sympathize with but at the same time you would laugh as well. Arai was crazy, but Ikal, the author, certainly the most.

This is true story! I read this novel as if all those written were happened, but I couldn’t bring myself to say so. This is also fiction, after all. Andrea Hirata brightly wrote his imago-experiences and turned out them became wise everyday philosophies. Success story

The way he wrote is still very good as I always enjoy reading it, if unable to stop. This is the high school times for him, continuing his primary school in Laskar Pelangi. It talks a lot about friendships, and dreams, and what to do to get them. So it is still an inspirational story, with funny moments spread everywhere.
I cried once, when the story tells about how his father was still smile although he disappointed him.

This is a good novel. From this book, I can learn that we must keep our friendship. If there is friend that need our help, we must help them. Also, we must respect our parents that love us, we must make them proud of us. Don't make them sad because of our bad attitude.

I can learn also, that to reach our dream we must have dream first. Never give up to reach our dreams. We must believe that we can reach our dreams by our struggles.

And never stop to study and study. We must study throughout our li

It is an inspirational book if the author could be objective. Unfortunately, he hates evolutionary biology very much without trying to understand it first, instead he chose the wrong teacher to learn biology: Harun Yahya, an art graduate who attack evolutionary biology to defend religion. It makes this book looks stupid and dangerous, because it denies the most important theory and facts in natural science.

Another 2 thumbs up for my favorite writer Andrea Hirata!
The power of dream, may God always keep your dreams and make your dreams come true someday. He has His own time, the best time to make all that you've been dreaming of just right on your hands.
Andrea in this book shares to us, never be afraid to dream, as high as you can dream. Never think that your dream is too good to be true. We never know right?

I recommend anyone that has lack in confidence about the future and what he/she can or cannot do, read this book. Andrea is successful in proving that we need a dream, a goal in life.

I often tell my friends that if you reach for the skyscraper, you might only reach the roof of you house; if you reach higher to the sky, you might get to the highest end of the skyscraper; so you have to reach for the stars, so you would at least reach the sky. Dream... and live up to it.
