Ombak Rindu - The Novel

I'm one of those people who watched the film first and read the book later. I rarely read Malay novels, or any kind of novel for that matter these days, so this is something totally out of the norm for me. It's not that I don't like to read, it's just that I never find the time to do so anymore. I somehow prefer to read short stories from the Reader's Digest instead. I used to read a lot when I was younger.....story books I mean......thanks to my parents who love to collect story books and of course read them as well hahahaha, they don't just collect them ok......especially my late father.....he read a lot!! A LOT I tell ya!!! :D

But all for the love of Ombak Rindu, I borrowed this book from my aunt and started reading it if I'm not mistaken about 1 or 2 weeks after I watched the film. And I'm only at chapter 7 now! LOL!! I wonder when I'll finish reading this. It's not that it's not an interesting read but, I'm always so busy with work. Excuses, excuses! I must finish reading this book this month!! :D

Well, if you must know.......film vs novel........so far, I kinda like novel better. I like the way the author tells the story too. She has a way of telling the story that makes you want to keep on continuing reading it. My aunt told me that she only took 2 days to finish reading the book. Ha! Can't beat her now. I'm a slow reader. Reading at snail pace. Haha! :D

Hi there,
I'm one of those who rarely read Malay novels as well. But I can say there some exceptions, just like this one...ombak rindu since I have received a lot of 'encouragements' from friends to try it out.I've got nothing to loose...so, why not???It turned out that I love the story and I continue reading Malay novels (just a few which received a lot of recommendations like this one).The other one is bicara hati, and the first episode was aired last night.Hmm...1st epi. looked good.Lets just wait for another few episodes before saying anything.Of course, it's pretty impossible to hope for 'exact' story line.Happy reading!

Thank you so much. I look forward to finishing up the book. Will search for Bicara Hati one day :). I'm not following the series though. Missed it.
