Bits of Heaven | A Book Review

Assalamualaikum wbt,

It was never my intention buying this book, I guess how I manage to buy and red this book is a miracle itself. I reckon spending an hour in Popular only to realize that I didn’t even brought anything, another hours later I went back to the same bookshop and manage to get this one unintentionally. What a coincidence isn’t it?
So, Bits of Heaven, I must say, I’ve been looking for a book like this which are not only beautifully written but also relies on how to deliver the facts itself. Make it live able and accepted in reality. That kind of injecting life into a book (err?).

“How do you value truth, Akeed?”“It’s part of virtues which I value more than everything else.”“Including your own life?” I sat mute.“We are now running against the clock. We’ve got to move fast, got to get everything cleared out.”I was confused.“Don’t be easily distracted. The truth is not simply visible to the naked eyes, not anymore. When people believe so much in media reports, history itself may conceal the truth. Only the chosen ones can see.”
Akeed Yahya is a PhD student at the Ohio University, United States of America. His objective in life is to discover the authentic essence of virtues through his involvement in watchdog journalism. Having faced great ordeals during this journey, like being shot in the city of Fallujah in the Iraqi al-Anbar province, there are two traits he cannot simply brush aside – tender solicitude and persistent inquisitive nature. These traits have driven him to travel to the Middle East to contend with some hard-truths about Egypt’s conflict and the aftermath of the Iraq War.
Akeed’s dauntless journey explores every aspect of journalism, philosophy and religion. The book is an interesting read for those who yearn for something with a different twist.

A serious matters deliver in a form of fiction book was a brilliant idea ever. I never thought that I can digest facts easily rather than having a headache reading some newspaper writing. Upss.
I must say people nowadays are not really conscious about valuing the truth of a person/event happen, some of them blinded by what the social media babbling about, tho it was not report truthfully. This book discuss this matter with broad minded without affecting the actual virtues quality of a person.
The main character are bold and strong (I’m impress!), sometimes just too good to be true, until the end of the stories where writer want us to know every people experience difficulties in their own journey and it always depends on our perspective whether the road we all taken worth the hereafter or not.
I love how faith value written in this book. Its just simply wonderful and amazing, it change my perspective a bit, in a good way I supposed. I felt its just a Hlovate-style of writing strikes my soul and mind again. Kudos sis Aisyah!
Rating : 4.5/5
I’m totally happy with this book. Thanks sis Aisyah.

Dah baca 180 pages and I love it! Okay sy cuba berlaku adil dengan buku-buku yg sy pernah bca sebelum ni. But this one, was one of its kind. Susunan ayat, installing the character personalities semuanya menjangkaui telahan yang saya telah fikirkan berkenaan novel-novel melayu 😂.
.
.
.
Daebak! Hanya satu ayat menunjukkan betapa saya kagum akan novel ini. But I need to dig more sebab tak selalu buku melayu membuatkan semangat membaca saya membara 😉. Tahniah penulis atas penulisan setengah novel yang begitu dramatik dan intimate.
  • QOTD : What book make you cringe to do something after reading it?
.

Last week I've been indulge myself in gaming assuming an assassin role mentioned in #projekathena. The mutual connection between the role both in the book also in ML make me cringe to know what its like to be an assassin. Eventually I fall in love with her. So my next move is climbing up the local rank for that particular heroes 😂. I blame @syeraho for this. .
.
.
Back to this book, its been a tearful journey, it was a long reading but a worthy one. I bet one can finish it in one sit as the words uses is simple and understandable.
.
.
.
Not to mentioned it was my first book from HF. Honestly its hard to rate this kind of book, where islamic lifestyle and fiction were blend together. For my version of rating, I tend to give high rate to the book which has intimate, personal connection to the reader (me), so for that reason I'll give 4⭐. Even after catching a headache resulting from tears streaming last night 😣. .
.
.
This book recommend for a light reading, bedtimes stories also to those who keen to seek assuring words of His Promises. No particular reader, I think its just suit for everyone. Also a nice book to read it Ramadan!

The book synopsis gonna be in the comment below :
  • Alhamdulillah done reading a malay science fiction about Projek Athena : Manusia Ciptaan (trans : Athena's Projeck : Human Building). Thank you to @imanpublication for providing me a physical copy of this book in exchange with honest review.

And it was a fun reading towards the end. And syabas @syeraho for your first novel! .
.
.
This book recommend to those who love actions because Syeraho write a beautiful chereofighting, well mostly in words - and that something to praise with!

I'm currently constructing in depth review for this book and will update it soon on Goodreads - read on GR cause  i'm hiding all the spoilers and leave you with all the good parts, lols 😜.

Rating : 3/5 🌠. Sorry there are pro and cons so I'll settle with this first 😉 and also dont judge by my rating cause im just a very stinky person 😅. .

Setiap buku harus punya awal niatnya yg tersendiri (Eyqa, 2019).
  • QOTD : What book do you bought only because of its cover?
.
.
.
First time encounter buku published by @katapilarbooks ialah masa baca Syif Tengah Malam. Rupanya this is penerbit yg penulis dia dikalangan doktor, misi also yang bertugas di hospital.
.
.
.
One of many reason I like about them is their cover yg lain dari yang lain. Mcm this one.
.
.
.
Jadi izinkan saya post pasal book cover mendahului book review dulu ya. 😂
.
.
.
Okay sekian. Saja nak bagitau cover dia cantik. 😉
  • Big thanks to @prologmed cos hosting a GA for this book last year 💖.

Akhirnya dapat juga habiskan buku ni. Dalam buku ni ada enam cerpen yang bertemakan time travel. Buat yg mendambakan peluang kedua dalam waktu yang terbatas, pembaca diajak untuk menilai semula sekiranya kita bisa merentas masa untuk mengubah sejarah, adakah kita akan lebih bahagia dari sekarang? Or worse? Or dlm erti kata lain kena baca dlu buku ni baru tahu 😂.
.
.
.
Dalam enam cerpen aku paling terkesan dengan yang ada love story with bit of plot twist. Yang ada karakter yang kuat dan background cerita yang baik. Sometimes rasa geram but another time rasa bahagia tgk kebahagiaan character biarpun fiksi semata.Tak nak bagi spoiler jadi ckp secara am sejalah yer.
.
.
.
Overall it was a good book. Kalau fans tentang Hermione with Time Turner, Harry Potter and The Cursed Child boleh lah try baca buku ni, setiap kisah ada teladan masing-masing. Yang tak akan dapat dinilai melainkan dengan cara membacanya sendiri. Hahh suspen takk? .
.
.
⭐⭐⭐⭐/5 cause I want more. The book alone tak cukup 😂.
