In this novel, the conflict was started when Wicak sent a bouquet flower to Lintang that he sent without his name (anonymous sender). The effect of the event, they were busy with their self. Although, all boy in Aagaban, except Gari were angry to him. Finaly, Wicak was apologize to all friends in Aagaban and they was graduated from their university.
The conflict came again when Lintang came to Gari’s apartment. Lintang saw Gari was romantic hugging by a man, she shocked because she thought Gari is gay. Then, she rang her friends (Wicak, Daus, and Banjar). At least, Gari admitted his self. He is Gay.
Before this story was end, they tripped to some of places in
Europe. They had fun with their trip. They went to interesting place. Sometimes, Lintang lost from them. Then, Lintang was found by Wicak. In the end of this story, Lintang married with Wicak. Although, first time I read this book I predicted Gari is her husband but it’s wrong.
After I read this book, I think, this book is interesting book because the book is completed by very many tips, such as when we will survive in Netherlands, how to hold the party in Netherlands; the book is also tell about national celebration of Netherlands.
However, this book had shortage of books. For example, we couldn’t imagine the city was told in this story, we need a map or drawing about that. Overall, this book is interesting book, doesn’t make boring feel.
