Book Review | The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith a.k.a JK Rowling

Just finished my third book of the months! OMG. Haha. I never believe it myself. So, you all may know what are the reason behind all my hiatus. Of course, reading and  reading again. And there is also few courses that I need to attend well you know for improving thingy – Alhamdulillah for the hectic week. 

But yes, lets have some review.

Its hard to resist and move on from the previous series of Cormoran and Robin adventure (The Cuckoo’s Calling) , definitely this two are the best partner in investigation ever. So, I grab the second novel by putting Seruan Trilogy in que before I finish this current novel. I fall in love with both of the characters (and I hope not to be blinded by the author status) but still, I enjoyed this novel so much. Im glad I’ve picked it up from the first place. 

Private investigator Cormoran Strike returns in a new mystery from Robert Galbraith, author of the #1 international bestseller The Cuckoo’s Calling.
When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days—as he has done before—and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home.
But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine’s disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were to be published, it would ruin lives—meaning that there are a lot of people who might want him silenced.
When Quine is found brutally murdered under bizarre circumstances, it becomes a race against time to understand the motivation of a ruthless killer, a killer unlike any Strike has encountered before
Tbh, this novel are easy to predict who the real doer is, just that RG usually and habit-ly conceal the truth by letting her readers believe that they were loaded with enough information by holding the real mystery which best to be reveal at the end of the plot *this is where everything make sense-that-kind of feeling).

I’m reading this book by knowing that I know who the real killer is, but I do not have enough proof to accuse that character. That is the very reason why I need to read the book page by page, so that I does not miss anything in concluding my inference. 
Yet, it still an enjoyable reading. All the mystery stuff will only lead you to an end of satisfy results. Plus now, I’m reading the third novel of Cormoran Strike mystery adventures, and on this third book I began to notice that its all about Strike and Robin hidden personal feelings (cause I’m rooting on it). Tho when I read the third one it sound more like a romance novel instead of a mystery novel. But its always nice to know and predict who the real doer in this third novel. 

Rates : ★★★☆☆

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.

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 😂.
  • Saya tidak selalu reviu buku-buku agama kerana semuanya sangat membantu dalam meningkatkan pemahaman kepada AQ dan AS.

Buku ni lebih ringkas dan praktikal dalam memahami apa sebenarnya rezeki. Penulis membuat pilihan cerita yang tepat dalam merungkai makna yang tersirat, bahawa rezeki tidak hanya dtg dalam bentuk wang ringgit. Satu bacaan yg berharga dalam meningkatkan amal bersedekah dan menolong insan yg memerlukan. Bahkan juga dalam menolong diri sendiri yang kesempitan.
.
.
.
Ramai manusia ingin kan kebahagiaan, tapi tak semua akan merasainya dan ramai manusia takut untuk diuji tapi semua akan menghadapinya. Read Al Imran : 142
.
.
.
Ini adalah antara buku yg membantu sy memahami indahnya rezeki. Bahawa di dunia ini, rezeki kita pada akhirnya akan ada dalam tiga bentuk sahaja yakni :
⭐ Makanan yg kita makan
⭐ Pakaian yang kita pakai utk tutup aurat
⭐ Ilmu yg telah kita pelajari dan amalkan
.
.
.
Sempena bulan Ramadhan yg bakal menjelang dengan ini thehundredpages akan lebih membaca buku-buku islamik terbitan tanah air. 😉😁
.
.
.
Semoga melayuku lurus. Amiin.
P/s : oh ya selepas baca al Imran 142, baca balik ayat 139 😉
