Namaku Raib, usiaku 15 tahun, kelas sepuluh. Aku anak perempuan seperti kalian, adik-adik kalian, tetangga kalian. Aku punya dua kucing, namanya si Putih dan si Hitam. Mama dan papaku menyenangkan. Guru-guru di sekolahku seru. Teman-temanku baik dan kompak.

Aku sama seperti remaja kebanyakan, kecuali satu hal. Sesuatu yang kusimpan sendiri sejak kecil. Sesuatu yang menakjub

3.5 Stars

The review is in English because I expressed my thoughts better this way. :)

3.5 stars because I'm not fully impressed with the writing and several other things. Maybe because I read the Malay translation instead of the original one, I was not really impressed with the writing. I'm old school, I love deep writing in Malay; flowery words that makes the sentences sound smooth and beautiful, this book doesn't have that. I wonder if it will be different if I read the original writing by Tere

Some of the characters are two-dimensional. I don't really care about any of them, really, except when it comes to the action part.....oh, and Ali, lmao I am rooting for him

I very rarely DNF-ed a book if it isn’t THAT bad. But honestly, I can’t stand this book anymore. I saw so many cringe worthy stuff in this boo that I really deem unbearable. There was just too many things I have seen in stories before like The Dark Tower and Harry Potter as a beginning. I wanted to love this book since I loved Hujan very much. Apparently, this series was just not for me

Hi, fellow bookworms! I'm back after such a super long hiatus! I can guarantee you I'm not dead. It's just that it was kinda hard to get back on track on my reading ever since my parents banned me from buying any novels months leading up to my high school graduation and college entrance exams. However, I'm gonna try to post regularly now that I've bought so many novels!

Okay, on to the review.

BUT, before I start my review, I'm gonna be honest with you, guys. The reason I just bought this book rec

My first DNF book for 2018.

On the first read, I think this book is way too boring. During the second time, I feel annoyed. That’s it!

Although I really want to know what happens to Raib, Seli and Ali but I can’t stand “Lelaki Kurus Tinggi”. How can he act like that? His character is really outrageous!!! 🤬🤬

This is literally the first novel books i have ever read and i am very lucky that this is the first book that caught my eye when i go to the bookstore. I promised myself that i will force myself to read it regardless if it's bad or not and thank god the book wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. The story in this book is really not that hard to understand and very easy to follow if you're a beginner like me and just started reading. The pacing of the story is a little bit slow but it pays off ...more

This book is about the adventure of 3 high school students that stuck in an unknown dimension. IN that dimension, they were being chased by an owner of strength that wanted to destroy all of the dimensions in this universe.

The book itself have a very interesting and unguessed plot, and that makes the book fun to read. SO this is very recommended for the sci-fi fiction or adventure book lovers.

I'm a big fan of fantasy stories, and for the first time I saw this book was so eye catching with it's green animated cover. I read its' synopsis at its back cover and I was like "I definitely have to buy this book!"

I read the book in Malay version. I think the plot would be better to be written in English. Anyway, the book is good and I'm looking forward to read more book from Tere Liye.

Not bad. I finished it in 2 days. The story somehow interesting even though it's not that unusual for a fantasy-fiction type. Thumbs up!
