A Very Yuppy Wedding by Ika Natassa


The first reason I bought dis book is the 'Wedding' word in d title. The second reason is d story is 'bout a bussines banker or account manager in comercial banking or exactly d same wiv my job now!! Hohohoo..


Why wedding? Like I said in my last posting, my wedding is less than a month to go!!! *dagdigdug* So, book about 'a life of banking account manager prepare her weeding day' sounds good to read..


Paragraf pertama pada belakang buku ini adalah:
The life of a business bankir is 24/7 , dan bagi Andrea, bankir muda yang tengah meniti karier di salah satu bank terbesar di Indonesia, rasanya ada 8 hari dalam seminggu. Power lunch, designer suit, golf di Bintan, dinner dengan nasabah, kunjungan ke proyek debitur, sampai dengan tumpukan analisis feasibility calon nasabah, she eat them all...

Guess what, those all really seems familiar for me. One of my boss even mention a lot about 'The life of a business bankir is 24/7'. Hehehe..

In my subjective opinion, reading dis book is much fun.. Sebagian besar yang diceritakan dibuku ini memang 'gw banggeedd'. Lagi d kantor tiba2 ditelponin orang undangan, cincin, dll... Job n wedding preparation, those two have to run well! Cerita pada buku ini yang awalnya fun berubah agak sedikit konflik ketika persiapan pernikahan tokoh utama Andrea mendekati hari H, banyak cobaan n godaan dlm hubungannya dengan sang calon suami. Cukup untuk membuat berkaca-kaca saat membacanya. *sambil teringat my big fighting with him just few day before the proposal day aka lamaran* Reading dis book feel like have friends to share..

In my objective opinion, buku ini sebenarnya hampir sama dengan buku-buku seri metropop lainnya (bahasa halus untuk "ceritanya biasa aja"). Ceritanya pun tidak begitu banyak menawarkan hal-hal yang membuat buku ini much more special. Tetapi berhubung cerita yang diangkat adalah tentang kehidupan sehari-hari, jadi memang cukup ringan dan selalu menyenangkan untuk dibaca di waktu senggang...

When I finished reading dis book, I start wondering, is it the Author's true story? The story seems too real. The author is Ika Natassa, who is a real comercial banking relationship manager, an interesting banker. Here is her blog if u wanna know her more.. The disappoint thing is, I dunno whether she has married or not, just like d story in dis book..  Entah kenapa, kalau dia married bukunya jadi lebih deep *lho?* hehehe...
