This book is a hot mess.

First, "zadul" is annoying, and its unnecessary repeat appearance is enough to make me want to lob this book at someone else's head, preferably a grammar nazi. Hell to old men's proper and correct Indonesian spelling's need to correct things that don't need correction. (If I have to write 'correct' one more time, I'll eat my shoes.) Second, all the Japanese stuff. So much, and yet so wrong. Third, SDD and Shrek and WA and Javanism and other yadda yadda bs form the unholy

Here's my favorite part on this novel:

I sent you a few words
ones that are now rare –
if they reach you one day,
hide them, there’s no way to understand me
the space that exists within a word
is like our home:
there are pictures, sounds, and gestures in it –
and yet we are forbidden to decipher it
for those who still believe in words:
silent is their surging core, pitch-dark is their heart of fire –
but when will we ever understand the sea?
and the eternal fire?

This is a collection of 102 poems, written between 1959 to 1989. The first edition was published in 1994 by grasindo but I got Gramedia version first published in 2013.
First reason I bought this book because once I knew a poet writing about a mother who did hunger strike looking for justice for her son (he refused to write about Love in particular).
Second reason is that I know 2 poems in this book, “aku ingin” and “Hujan Bulan Juni” , that were sources of inspiration of many today’s popular arti

Written beautifully in SDD's style of figurative language. I enjoy the poems, marvelous as always. However, I find it a little difficult to follow the story. Some similes are just not for me, many terms are not familiar (to me) I don't know what he's talking about. The story? It was just good, not very special. A little frustrating when I have run miles throughout the book only to find stumbled on a rock and went blackout. What's nextt?!!?

I always appreciate SDD, he is the one of many my favorite author of Indonesia. I love every words in this book, but I only can give 3 stars because I thought the story is too clise.

The novel is too vague. I thought there was something in me that I couldnt comprehend what really is about the novel. Then I read the second book and still, too vague. Literally nothing.

I choose this book because it was written by Sapardi. I knew some of her poet, and though I did not really enjoy poetry, I love some of Sapardi's poet. I have a good expectation when first I decide to read this book, but, well, umh... to be honest, I did not really enjoy it. This book was below my expectation. The plot is too "naive", the story itself did not really interesting (well, what I expect to read a story of young couple fallen in love - as usual?). I have strong feeling Sapardi tried t ...more

I surprisingly like this one, the type of narrative that I could easily absorb myself into: peek-my-mind book, one kind of 'ngobrol' book. If you look for a chronological plot, a complicated problem and twisted ending, be prepared for a disappointment. Hujan Bulan Juni the Novel(la) is a character-driven one, a story that could go on and on and all we (I) need to see is 'what's next', not 'where's the end'. The last page of the book is not necessarily the last chapter of the characters' life pha ...more

Sarwono berusaha keras utk tdk menjalani hidup nasib-nasiban, tetapi tdk begitu yakin apakah ada hidup yg takdir-takdiran. -Hujan Bulan Juni, SDD-

I'm in love with this novel! The author was known as one of Indonesia's greatest poet. He was known with his 'everday' word in writing his poetry, nonetheless his poetry could penetrate the deepest of your heart.
This novel is very light, it only took 2 hours for me to finish it. It's very witty. And in the end, it tugs something in my heart. Light yet

Shelves: drama, romance
The book lacks of soul. It tried to be a romance but it does not give sufficient motive or that giddy-giddy feeling to the main characters until you left to not care to them. I think putting tribe differences as a source of conflict feel doesn't really well put if one of the main character is mixed. So many conflicts feel to be forced and the lack of chemistry make it worse.

Maybe I expect too much from him. He is probably one of the greatest poet / author that Indonesia has, also the honorary professor at my alma mater, UI, but this time, quite bland. The conflict's too simple, the characters aren't strong. I try to savor every word of it, though. He is still one of the best legacy for Indonesian literature

Sapardi Djoko Damono is a legend of Indonesian literature. His masterpieces are always amazing. Particularly to this book, I rate 4 instead of 5 because its story is ordinary, nothing special, even though the way he writes is adorable as always. You will find the best part of this novel in page 44, based on my view point of course.

i remember reading one of SDD's poems back then when i was still a middle-schooler and fell totally in love with it. i started reading this book with that memory in mind but i don't think this novel lives up to my expectations.

It's brilliant. I'm drawn to the story like I'm witnessing their life right before my eyes. All the scenes are just too vivid.

I wanna read some more of this kind of genre.
