READ KINDLE ì Critical Eleven ð Dalam dunia penerbangan, dikenal istilah critical eleven, sebelas menit paling kritis di dalam pesawat tiga menit setelah take off dan delapan menit sebelum landing karena secara statistik delapan puluh persen kecelakaan pesawat umumnya terjadi dalam rentang waktu sebelas menit itu It s when the aircraft is most vulnerable to any dangerIn a way, it s kinda the same with meeting people Tiga menit pertama kritis sifatnya karena saat itulah kesan pertama terbentuk, lalu ada delapan menit sebelum berpisah delapan menit ketika senyum, tindak tanduk, dan ekspresi wajah orang tersebut jelas bercerita apakah itu akan jadi awal sesuatu ataukah justru menjadi perpisahanAle dan Anya pertama kali bertemu dalam penerbangan Jakarta Sydney Tiga menit pertama Anya terpikat, tujuh jam berikutnya mereka duduk bersebelahan dan saling mengenal lewat percakapan serta tawa, dan delapan menit sebelum berpisah Ale yakin dia menginginkan AnyaKini, lima tahun setelah perkenalan itu, Ale dan Anya dihadapkan pada satu tragedi besar yang membuat mereka mempertanyakan pilihan pilihan yang mereka ambil, termasuk keputusan pada sebelas menit paling penting dalam pertemuan pertama merekaDiceritakan bergantian dari sudut pandang Ale dan Anya, setiap babnya merupakan kepingan puzzle yang membuat kita jatuh cinta atau benci kepada karakter karakternya, atau justru keduanya I can t say how many times I rolled my eyes reading the lines, or cringe at the description of the lead female character s feeling, up to the point I nearly throw this book out of the

description of the lead female character s feeling, up to the point I nearly throw this book out of the window.I m sorry, Tanya Laetitia Baskoro Risjad, but to me you re just another self righteous, egotistical drama queen.You said your husband hates you, but not once you let him verbally say he s sorry for what he said You even managed to stop him cold from his many efforts to show how he realized he made a very big mistake to you You gave him blank, cold stare You didn t respond when he talked to you You brushed him off every time, for six months But then, as a reader I have to endure reading hundreds of pages filled with your own judgmental thoughts, and how you keep crying your heart out over losing your stillborn son All this culminated with that scene where you accused your husband not caring enough about your son, simply because he grieved differently than you.Anyone who has ever lost someone unexpectedly, in a sudden tragedy, should have known that everyone has their own way to show grief Not everyone cries to sleep, every night, the way you do So when you mis judged Aldebaran Risjad for being a stone cold hearted, uncaring father because he didn t cry over the loss of Aidan Atthailah Risjad in front of you, that s when I decided you deserve a place in that category of the most annoying fictional lead characters ever written in Indonesian novels , alongside

played Dark Souls 2 with my cousin, and after moving around the jungle for hours, we gave up and decided to go back to where we started That s exactly what I feel when I read Critical Eleven Putting Sold 1,111 copies in 11 minutes label on the plastic wrap well is a gallant thing to do as it makes readers wonder why people buy this book Back when Critical Eleven was still in pre order era, I asked the same question myself Selling that amount of books in Indonesia is honestly such an unbeatable feat, and I can t remember whether there is any other Indonesian book that is sold that fast or not I am impressed, to say the least, and I make a note to myself to buy this book when it came out to understand what this fuss is really about I have read A Very Yuppy Wedding before, and I have prepared myself to face that tremendous amount of English sentences, a high class lifestyle, and godly characters I know I will encounter those things in Critical Eleven, but I never expect I will find this book quite uhm messy I heave a sigh relief after reading this book Reading Critical Eleven is very exhausting when you have to cringe and roll your eyes all the time, trying to point the mistakes here and there First of all, that pretentious style of writing I have read A Very Yuppy Wedding when I was in junior high if I recall correctly, and I don t mind with that kind of style However, as I grow up and older, I begin to realize that the most important thing for me from reading a book is how the author relays his or her message by using words and sentences as effective as possible Using those obscure words ubiquitously, for me, doesn t relay the message quite well, especially if it doesn t have any connection with the plot If I were the editor, I will leave out those unnecessary film scenes, quotes, footnotes, and Critical Eleven probably will be much shorter Even if I find the conversation between the characters flowing and good, my other complaint is the conversation between Harris and Ale which is really cringeworthy, with that bro thing and it feels really forced and trying hard to sound masculine I know Ika Natassa has tried her best to write a male point of view, and I salute her since Ale s point of view is quite masculine, but yeah, we re not bro ing everything that moves and always talking about girls So, yeah, flashnews we re not that shallow Which makes me remember another complaints that I have Even though it s only a work of fiction, and it doesn t represent what the author thinks, there are several stuffs that are against my personal belief At that time, I just really want to throw out the book, just like what Pat Solitano, Jr Bradley Cooper did in Silver Linings Playbook Beware, you will find many artist and film references like this on the book First, I don t agree with the women objectification I don t think that objectification is the proper word, but when you compare woman with a coffee bean, no matter how good the comparison or the parable is, it s such an inhumane thing to do I know I sound like sweating small stuffs, but I believe that human being cannot be compared to an inanimate objects Secondly, I don t quite agree with the gender stereotyping that is used either Several reviewers have stated that there are templates in Ika Natassa s characters, and this template is like giving a false illusion of what men are supposed to be or do and what women are supposed to be or do Gender is not like public toilet where you can easily split it into male or female Gender islike color spectrum And that s why I believe that you cannot equalize one condition to all people My major disappointment, is though, when Anya said that men who love Lady Gaga are gay I was like, Wtf I don t believe that Ika Natassa can be really that shallow since that bold statement is not even true That s really stereotyping, and I find that offensive I don t even love Lady Gaga I m not even gay I m really sorry, but I just can t agree with this even if it s just only a fiction And just like what I have explained before, reading this book is like walking through the misty jungle in Dark Souls 2 With those flashbacks, the plot keeps going around and then I find myself from the start again.I guess it s unfair to complain everything about the book, so I will give one thing that I really like about this book If you ignore the useless and confusing flashbacks, I find its plot refreshing It is different than any metropop that I have ever read, and I am actually glad that Ika Natassa writes about dealing with grief from different perspective The conflict is quite believable, and trust me, I can really feel what Anya felt at that time, and she s not exaggerating how she s hurt, how traumatic she can be The conflict itself is worth 4 stars, but reading a novel is supposed to be entertaining and fun I think reading Critical Eleven is entertaining, but it s not a fun read And that s why that four stars are divided to compensate the lack of fun If only Ika Natassa humbles her sentences a little bit to reachpeople in different class, I m sure I will this give book at least four stars If this is what I will get from Ika Natassa s next works, I m really sorry I won t pick up them next time However, I believe she can write different stories with different andmodest characters, and that s when I will try again After all, Ika Natassa has a flair in writing engaging story, and I have to admit that I m engaged with her writing The review can also be read here Finally finished my first Ika Natassa which also happen to be my comeback to Indonesia literary after such long years Last time 5 Cm I don t know what is it that is so wrong about me reading an Ika Natassa s book, but lot of my friends stared at me in such confusion reaction varied from you read Ika Natassa to I got a headache seeing you reading her work Probably because I projected myself as someone who islikely into literary heavyweight such as Calvino, or Dostoevsky surp Finally finished my first Ika Natassa which also happen to be my comeback to Indonesia literary after such long years Last time 5 Cm I don t know what is it that is so wrong about me reading an Ika Natassa s book, but lot of my friends stared at me in such confusion reaction varied from you read Ika Natassa to I got a headache seeing you reading her work Probably because I projected myself as someone who islikely into literary heavyweight such as Calvino, or Dostoevsky surprise, I can t even finish The Brothers Karamazov Who knows But then again, I am a man who put Armageddon and 8 1 2 side by side on my movies collection.Evensurprising is the fact that should her works are all like this, and with lot of reviews that said this book is quite similar with her previous work, then I assume they are she s good True, her writing is less literary andblog , but the important thing is that her writing are enjoyable, and it flows easily Just by reading her words, I can know that she has a lot of street smart read references that makes her become a capable though by that less literary andblog hinder her for becoming a nobel worthy one storyteller.If there s one thing that I mostly dislikewho about the book is the deus ex machina that was being used It s like she s giving us an intriguing math problem that piqued our interests on how she s gonna solve it, only to screams fuck it, here s a calculator in the end But the rest was good I finished it in less than a week and might pick her other book after this I m debating whether I should give 2 stars or 2.5 stars.The characters are pretty exciting but the story is not I can t even bring myself to read page by page.I feel bad I m sorry.
