wishful wednesday

Halo… Selamat Idul Fitri untuk semua teman-teman Wishful Wednesday yang merayakan, mohon maaf lahir dan batin🙂 Semoga semuanya hepi bisa kumpul sama keluarga, mudik dan pastinya makan-makan donkss😀

Tapi yang sudah masuk kantor seperti saya, jangan sedih jangan lesu, kita mimpi-mimpi aja yoook😄

Minggu ini, saya mau memasukkan buku The Interestings (Meg Wolitzer) dalam Wishful Wednesday. Buku ini sukses banget bikin saya galau, membandingkan harganya di beberapa toko online maupun offline, dan masih belum bisa memutuskan untuk beli karena harganya masih di atas budget😄

interestingsThe summer that Nixon resigns, six teenagers at a summer camp for the arts become inseparable. Decades later the bond remains powerful, but so much else has changed. In The Interestings, Wolitzer follows these characters from the height of youth through middle age, as their talents, fortunes, and degrees of satisfaction diverge.

The kind of creativity that is rewarded at age fifteen is not always enough to propel someone through life at age thirty; not everyone can sustain, in adulthood, what seemed so special in adolescence. Jules Jacobson, an aspiring comic actress, eventually resigns herself to a more practical occupation and lifestyle. Her friend Jonah, a gifted musician, stops playing the guitar and becomes an engineer. But Ethan and Ash, Jules’s now-married best friends, become shockingly successful—true to their initial artistic dreams, with the wealth and access that allow those dreams to keep expanding. The friendships endure and even prosper, but also underscore the differences in their fates, in what their talents have become and the shapes their lives have taken.

Wide in scope, ambitious, and populated by complex characters who come together and apart in a changing New York City, The Interestings explores the meaning of talent; the nature of envy; the roles of class, art, money, and power; and how all of it can shift and tilt precipitously over the course of a friendship and a life.

Selalu suka sama cerita persahabatan dan perubahan yang terjadi selama mereka beranjak dewasa. Oiya, settingnya di New York pula, menambah point buku ini buat saya😀
