Kerana Mahalnya Syurga by Imi Hafimi

November 14, 2020 5 Comments
 Assalamualaikum, good day dearest ! Happy weekend semua nya... Sempat jugak la edit post ni dalam kesibukan. Rasanya ni novel review yang terakhir daripada penulis selain Sara Aisha. Sekarang memang novel SA je yang belum sempat nak habis edit so terkandas dekat draft lagi... Anyway, here it is!


Tajuk : Kerana Mahalnya Syurga
Penulis : Imi Hafimi
Mukasurat : 750 pages
Penerbit : Penulisan Enterprise
Terbitan : September 2013
ISBN : 9789670567143
Blurb :

"Sebagaimana kau hasut abang aku untuk tukar agamanya, kau seksa mak aku sampai mak aku gila dan mati dalam keadaan yang paling mengerikan, dan sebagaimana kau menjadi punca ayah aku sakit tenat sampai ayah aku mati, kau kena ingat semua tu, Umi Zafwa! Kau kena sedar betapa dalamnya dendam aku kepada kau dan apa sahaja yang berkaitan dengan kau!"

Dendam itu. Kerana dendamnya kepada Umi Zafwa, dia merancang untuk membiarkan Umi Zafwa turut terluka. Umi Zafwa perlu disakiti dan caranya, Umi Zafwa perlu menjadi miliknya dahulu!

Umi Zafwa. Tiada seorang wanita pun yang menginginkan perkahwinan sepertinya. Perkahwinan yang hanya membuka kepada jalan penderitaan. Namun, racun yang diberi Alex, madu yang dibalasnya. Benci yang diberi, kasih yang dibalasnya.

Bukan Alex tidak pilu, bukan Alex tidak terjentik lewat pengorbanan Umi Zafwa. bahkan bergenang air matanya melihat ketenangan Umi Zafwa yang sentiasa tabah meski dilukai.

Lantas, semakin Alex terasa mula sayang, semakin keras dia menyakiti Umi Zafwa. Kemesraan di hadapan Katherina, kekasihnya sentiasa ditunjuk-tunjuk. Umi Zafwa hanya mampu memendam rasa.

Hinggalah saat apabila Umi Zafwa tegar menggantikan tempat Alex di tali gantung... Di situlah dirasakan mahalnya syurga... Dapatkah kesucian pengorbanan itu meleraikan sebuah dendam? Kerana dendam mereka bertemu, adakah kerana dendam juga mereka mampu bersatu?

"Tak ada pemandangan yang paling cantik, yang paling indah buat seorang suami selain wajah isterinya..." - ALEX

"Boleh tak kalau saya nak pulangkan semula pemandangan paling indah itu sekarang juga?" - UMI ZAFWA

"Tak ada apa-apa pun yang awak perlu pulangkan kepada saya. Awak tak ada apa-apa hutang pun kepada saya..." - ALEX
Okay, novel ni published back in 2013... Satu tempoh yang sangat lama and tahun 2013 ni aku punya minat baca suam-suam kuku aje... Anyway, back to our topic, bagi aku konsep novel ni, hmm, klise sebab hero dia cuma kahwin dengan heroin sebab dendam. Something like, hate turned love. Tapi, plotting dia okay and quite menarik. Alex berdendam sebab dia hilang keluarga dia lepas abang dia, Raymond peluk Islam. So, dia marah dengan Umi Zafwa, perempuan yang berjaya mengubah hidup Raymond.

Cumanya, ada few (should I say all?) minus point yang buat aku rasa malas nak baca novel ni. First, relationship Alex dengan Umi Zafwa ni toxic sangat. Second, watak Umi Zafwa ni terlalu naif sampaikan dia boleh terima Alex as her husband sedangkan dia tahu Alex berdendam dengan dia. Third, Alex's drastic change. Oh, yang ni aku confused sekejap. Lepas bertahun-tahun dia seksa jiwa raga Umi Zafwa, sekali dia tengok Umi berhujan tunggu dia buka pintu dia terus rasa bersalah and nak berubah? Okay, memang  dia ada perasaan bersalah masa seksa Umi tapi turning point untuk dia berubah tu agak mengecewakan. And last, oh this is the most disappointing point. nilai Islamik yang diharapkan dalam novel ni tak ditonjolkan, jadi sekadar penyedap rasa.

Watak Umi Zafwa ni memang aku tak gemar. Tak salah nak jadi baik tapi jangan sampai orang gunakan kita. Tak salah nak husnudzon tapi jangan sampai mendera diri sendiri. Haih, berapa kali dia terima Alex sedangkan Alex yang cabul maruah dia, seksa dia macam binatang, gunakan dia untuk kepentingan sendiri. Allahu, sepanjang baca novel ni memang aku geram dengan Umi ni. Sampaikan dia sanggup masuk penjara, menggantikan Alex dan mengharapkan Alex jaga anak dia? Lagi buat aku geram. Dia takde assurance pun yang Alex akan jaga and tunaikan janji untuk rawat anak dia. Padahal waktu dia pregnant pun Alex sanggup halau dia keluar dari rumah and harap anak dia mati, apatah lagi bila dia takde. Aku takkan sanggup tinggalkan anak aku dengan orang yang macam tu. Maybe aku tak sebaik Umi. Watak Umi ni bagi aku adalah selemah-lemah perempuan. Sikit pun takde penulis ketengahkan Umi untuk melawan Alex demi diri sendiri. 

Alex punya perubahan lepas Umi Zafwa keluar penjara pun disappointing. Aku ingatkan lepas Umi bebas (big question mark jugak macam mana dia boleh bebas) dia memang dah sedar salah dia but noooo he still abused her. Turning point Alex memang aku tak faham. Sesenang Umi berhujan dia berubah? Terus ubah panggilan, kelakuan semua ? I mean, kalau dah habit bertahun beraku-kau takkan semudah itu bertukar abang-Umi? Sepanjang hidup tak pernah terima Allah sebagai tuhan yang satu bahkan menghina agama Islam, tiba-tiba terus sebut nama-Nya? Bukan aku meragui orang yang nak berubah tapi bukan dengan cara yang drastik macam Alex ni. Adeh, kiciwa kita.

Nilai Islam yang ditunjukkan hanya pada permulaan novel dimana Raymond jumpa cahaya Islam masa dengar Umi mengaji. Ujian yang dia kena hadap lepas peluk Islam, but that's it. Yang aku geram, even after tahu ayah dia sakit, Raymond ni boleh hijrah ke Indonesia untuk belajar Islam. Bukankah berbakti kepada ibubapa itu lebih diterapkan dalam Islam? Memang tak salah dia nak mendalami Islam tapi hm di Malaysia pun banyak kelas-kelas agama. Oh, disappointing sungguh. Paling kecewa bila penulis tekankan ketaatan Umi kepada Alex. Taat Umi membinasakan diri. Aku sangat sangat tak setuju.

Belum cerita bab Umi masuk penjara ganti Alex. Macam manalah pihak polis boleh terima Umi punya pengakuan sahaja tanpa bukti, sedangkan Alex dibebaskan sebab CCTV (bukti) and Umi dipenjarakan semata-mata pengakuan? Aku tak rasa undang-undang Malaysia ni semudah itu. Lagi menjadi tanda tanya bila Umi dibebaskan. How? Okay, aku faham kalau nak kata Allah bantu orang yang teraniaya tapi dengan cara apa? Sedangkan pembunuh sebenar pun ditahan lepas setahun (ke dua) Umi dibebaskan. Nampak... Tak logik. Tambah pulak dengan watak on, off yang kejap ada pastu hilang. Contohnya, Jason (kawan baik Umi), Raymond (dah jadi punca masalah lepas tu what menghilang?), mak ayah Umi (entah hidup lagi ke tidak lepas Umi ajak pindah masuk rumah Alex).

And lastly (last la sebab banyak sangat dah aku taip ni), penulisan novel ni okay, cuma aku tak selesa sebab penulis punya pengolahan ayat a bit dramatic ? And dalam satu perenggan tu panjang sangat sampaikan aku malas nak baca semua. Kalau sekali selak novel ni memang dalam satu page tu ada around four to five perenggan aje. Sakit mata wehhh. Definitely not my cup of tea.

p/s: aku taklah Islamic mana, banyak juga dosa, kesalahan yang aku buat dan sebab itulah aku membaca, explore apa yang aku tak tahu. andai kata aku tersalah informasi/tanggapan/pemikiran dalam reviu ni, please do inform me so that i can improve myself.

365 : Repeat The Year

November 06, 2020 20 Comments
Assalamualaikum, good day dearest! It's been a hectic week for me. I was able to squeeze in to edit and schedule this review and I think my weekly k-drama review will be hold off for now. I need to do a lot catching up for studies so yeah.



Title : 365 : Repeat The Year / 365 : One Year Against Destiny
Episodes : 24 episodes (35 minutes per episode)
Genre : Fantasy, Crime, Mystery
Director : Kim Kyung Hee
Writer : Kurumi Inui,Lee Seo Yoon, Lee Soo Kyung
Network : MBC
Cast : Lee Joon Hyuk, Nam Ji Hyun, Kim Ji Soo
Plot : 

Ji Hyung Joo is a detective. One day, he lost his senior partner when one of the ex-convict killed him. After that day, he spent his day in sorrow and regret. One day, he receives a called from a stranger saying that there will be a train accident the next day. The next day, after confirming that the news was true, she called him back and invite him to Zian Clinic on the next weekend to answer his question. When the day came, ten other people was gathered in a room. They then learnt from Lee Shin, the woman who called them, that they could repeat the year and enjoy their lives again. After the process called reset, Ji Hyung Joo found out that one by one people from the reset died. He then works together with Shin Ga Hyun, a webtoon artist that he admired to uncover the mystery.

This drama is an adaptation to a 2004 Japanese novel by Kurumi Inui entitled 'Repeat'. There was also a Japanese drama based on the same novel released in 2018. The title was 'Wheel Of Fortune'.

SPOILER ALERT

First off, this drama had a crazy plot twist and I freaking love it! As per synopsis, Ji Hyun Joo lost his partner, Park Sun Ho and became lifeless ever since. He then discovered that he could go back a year and decided to save him. After that, he became acquaintance with Shin Ga Hyun, a webtoon artist. They became close after Hyung Joo told her that he is his fan, they became close. After the death of Seo Yoon Soo, one of the people who went through reset, Ga Hyun became the prime suspect because of the CCTV recording of them arguing. Hyun Joo was the detective in charge. When her charges was cleared, they begun to investigate the mystery behind the death of the resetters (people who repeat their year).

There was so much mystery to this drama and it honestly frustrated me so much. I enjoy the mystery behind the death of the resetters because they all died differently and there was no sign of killing. After watching so much crime dramas I think this is the first time I watched clueless of the death. It really had no sign of serial killer, at all. I only realized that it was serial killing when one important item of the victim was missing and there was one scene where one mysterious man went out of a room filled with display case and few of them contain the missing item. I'm blown. 

Another thing is, Lee Shin. She was so mysterious and everything that she said to the resetters after the reset wasn't the whole truth. There will always be part of it were lies. And that honestly, messed up my mind to the point that I refused to guess her deal. The farther the story goes, the more mysterious it became. And then she keep talking on the phone to some professor, which was only revealed at the end of the drama. 

Even tho it was filled with mysteries, there were also some humorous scene that keep me entertained. It was good to have a laugh once in awhile. Another thing that I love was the romance between Hyung Joo and Ga Hyun. Their chemistry was so boom!  Even though they never confess or act on their feelings but it was evident that they were into one another. Oh, young loveeee. 

The actors was so great especially both main actors, Nam Ji Hyun and Ji Hyung Joo. Their chemistry, as I was was really great and I really hope to see them together in another work. Kim Ji Soo (who portray Lee Shin) was also a great actor! She really seems like a crazy woman who enjoy people's suffering. I love her expression, she really did study her character well. Especially when she faked surprise or concern, I could tell that she was faking it and she did them to piss the person she spoke to. 

The ending, despite it was a  happy ending, I kind of feel bitter of it. The reason simply because Hyung Joo had to go through reset again and this time to save Ga Hyun. Aghhhh, why can't she saty alive on the last reset. Somehow, it kills my mood. But then, it was for the best because Hyung Joo was able to apprehended the killer before he begun his killing. He also able to apprehend 'the professor' behind Lee Shin. The minus point was when Ga Hyun doesn't remember the time they spent together and they had to go back to the beginning despite him remember her. Ahhhh, my heart really!

When Sun Meets Moon

October 31, 2020 19 Comments
Assalamualaikum, good day dearest! Happy weekend~ Here is another review for you and this time it is a Hong Kong movie!





Title : When Sun Meets Moon
Runtime : 95 minutes
Genre : Youth, Romance
Country / Language : Hong Kong / Cantonese
Released year : 2018
Director : Benny Lau
Writer : Benny Lau, Pui Yin Wong
Cast : Daichi Harashima, Kathy Yuen
Plot : 

A heavy rainstorm in 1992 has caused a massive power outage in Hong Kong. During the night, two teenagers sneaked out of their house and went stargazing. Moon(Kathy Yuen) and Sun(Daichi Harashima) soon became familiar with each other and slowly fall in love. Sun was sent to a boarding school for a year before he leave to America, just like his father's plan. Just like the moon and the sun, they hardly see one another especially when Moon's mother was against their relationship. Time passed and it was time for Sun to move.
SPOILER ALERT

A light binge watch for the weekend. It's been so long since I last watch a youth movie and this really had me hooked. The overall plot can be seen as two teenagers trying to work on their relationship despite their parents oppositions. 

I really love their cute little communication when Sun was sent to the boarding school. With only weekend for his free time, they can't see each other like always, especially when the school was a little far from their tiny town. At first, they didn't have a form of communication but when Moon went to the school to see him, they begin to wrote letters to each other, even though it is against the school rule. I love how Moon had Uncle Ming (a bookstore owner where Moon works at) to cover for her and Sun had his homeroom teacher and also the garderner, Ghost to help him.

Another challenge to them was when it comes to Sun's move to America. Moon was ghosted by her mother that he will leave and forget about her once he moved and she would suffers alone. Even the supportive Uncle Ming would constantly reminded her that he would leave and their long distance relationship wouldn't work. Despite that, she put faith on him and took the chance.

I love how there will be constant mention of the stars even though it was not really informative. It kind of became their things together. Sun even bought a star and named it 'Sun Moon Star' (or was it Moon Sun Star?) in respect of their name. 

Overall, this is a great little movie for relaxing and even though it seems a little boring at first but the pace pick up gradually.

The Target

October 30, 2020 6 Comments
Assalamualaikum, good day dearest! I am back with another movie review and this is another South Korean movie, tho, a remake from French movie.


Title : The Target
Runtime : 98 minutes
Genre : Crime, Action, Thriller
Country / Language : South Korea / Korean
Released year : 2014
Director : Chang
Writer : Jun Chul Hong
Cast : Ryu Seung Ryong, Lee Jin Wook
Plot : 

Yeo Hoon is an ex-soldier. One night, while getting pay for his brother, Sung Hoon, he encounter a murder scene. He went on run when the murderer tried to kill him. Yeo Hoon then met a car accident while trying to get away. He was sent to a hospital where Tae Joon worked. After a long hours, Tae Joon came home and was knocked out. He receives a phone call who demanded him to bring Yeo Hoon out of hospital if he wanted his wife safe and alive.
This film is a remake to a French film, 'Point Blank' directed by Fred Cavaye.

SPOILER ALERT

This movie is insane! I am not sure how the French (original) version works but this version was very thrilling and filled with action scenes much to my delight. Even the beginning was so surprising seeing Yeo Hoon chased by unknown man for unknown reason. 

I think it was a bit direct plot. It was expected that Yeo Hoon was framed to be the murderer for the building owner. Maybe a little twist with the Tae Joon's wife kidnapper. At first, I thought the people who wanted to kill Yeo Hoon was the one who kidnapped Tae Joon's wife but it wasn't. Yeo Hoon's younger brother was the one who kidnap her and asked Tae Joon to bring his brother out of hospital.

I was really curious of the killer identity and motives because it was rarely mentioned. When the truth came out, I was really shocked, especially when they finally had the female detective on their side only to lose it again. The truth was so crazy to even think about. How can they be so cruel and use their title for a disgusting benefit? 

Besides the craziness of the actions and tensions, there were some scenes that made me a little emotional. I can't believe that they( the killers) really kill Yeo Hoon's brother and left him like a trash. What a cruel human being. Oh, they don't even qualified to be called human. And that time when the truth came out, the female detective was shot to death with no mercy, and no warning. Everything happened so fast that I am stunned!

The ending was good and I am really glad that Yeo Hoon had a new family to turn to. Even if he lost his brother, he gained a new family with Tae Joon. The 98 minutes feels so fast with this movie.

The Legend Of The Blue Sea

October 30, 2020 10 Comments
Assalamualaikum, good day dearest! Last week was a bit hectic for me and I got no time to finish the drama and wrote the review. Hence, here it is now.


Title : The Legend Of The Blue Sea
Episodes : 20
Genre : Fantasy, Romance, Drama
Director : Jin Hyuk
Writer : Park Ji Eun
Network : SBS
Cast : Lee Min Ho, Jeon Ji Hyun
Plot : 

Heo Jun Jae is a conman. He works with Jo Nam Doo and Tae Oh. After a big success of another project, he took a rest and went abroad and stay at an oceanside resort. Due to a big tidal wave, a nameless mermaid was stuck at the resort where Jun Jae stayed at. She then broke into his resort and eat his food. Realizing this situation, Jun Jae called the local police station and have her captured. However, her jade bracelet caught his attention. Upon knowing the value of the bracelet, he went to police station and released her. After spending a day together, he took the bracelet and leave her in a mall. Feeling guilty for not saying goodbye, he went for her and took her in for a day. Getting caught by the people he conned, they escape to the ocean where then they came to the end of cliff. The mermaid then pulled Jun Jae to the ocean and erased his memory. Jun Jae went back to Seoul with no memory of her while the mermaid swam for three months to Seoul to meet Jun Jae again.

SPOILER ALERT

2016 was such a win for k-drama lovers because there was so many good dramas! This drama was no exception. This drama was so balanced between the light-ness and heavy-ness. There was comical scenes at the beginning because of how unfamiliar all things is to the mermaid who then named as Sim Cheong. 

The plot was so flow-y and well directed. I especially love the relation with the past lives of the present character. It was so sad to think that every ill-fated past will haunted them to the present. Sung Dong Il was given a villain character, Ma Dae Yong in this drama and he was so good at it. Even though there wasn't a scene of him being cruel, but he make it up with his expression and tone. It was a struggle for Jun Jae for not letting the history to repeat itself.

Heo Jun Jae's family conflict definitely an added spice to this drama. Especially when his step-mother is related to Ma Dae Yong. I was confused of Heo Chi Hyun's real side. He seems nice but then he turned a blind eye for his mother. He is just another sick character. I was so frustrated whenever Jun Jae almost met his mother. It really irked me whenever they just passed one another without knowing. She was closer than he thought.

With a cameo by big names such as Jo Jung Suk, Jung Yoo Mi, Krystal, Cha Tae Hyun and Ahn Jae Hong really made this drama stood out. I love those episode with Jo Jung Suk. He was a merman who's with a limited time after his love married to someone else. He taught Sim Cheong how to live in the land and all. 

Another reason why this drama was so successful was the OSTs. I really can't chose a favorite with this drama. The one sung by Yoon Mirae was good and so is the sung by Lyn and Sung Si Kyung. And like I said, 2016 is a win for k-drama lovers. Great dramas, great OSTs, what else could we asked for.

Thoughtless Thursday #033

October 29, 2020 8 Comments

 Assalamualaikum, good day dearest! It's been long since my last entry of this segment. Wow, I feel a little embarrassed with all the ranting in the last #TT. It took me a little over one week to get over that rejection and now I am fine. I've been wanting to share this news ever since the last week but things got a little hectic so, yeah.

On 19th Oct, the result for UPU second phase was out. Being real, I don't even expecting anything and I actually don't even remember that day. But then, one of my friend contact me, asking did I get through or not. Being confused, I asked him what was he talking of then he explained that it was the day for the UPU result. When I checked, I was so shocked to even believe my eyes. I even doubt that there was some technical issues so I keep the result to myself. When I checked it again later that night, I was really got in!

I got in IIUM for the session 2020/2021 and I have successfully online registered myself, last week. Oh, as the university requirement, I sat for my English Placement Test (EPT) and Arabic Placement Test (APT) last week and this Monday respectively. One thing that I can conclude is, online test is a headache. I'm praying to get through this semester just fine. Oh the result are expected to be out tomorrow.

At this opportunity, I wanted to give a massive thanks to those who reached out to me during my rant and breakdown. Thank you for the kind words you guys gave me, they really comfort me. Thank you so much! I hope this situation would eventually get better so that we can all get back to the lives we used to. Let's take care of ourselves and stay safe everyone! Oh, Salam maulidurasul semua!

Kecubung by Rosa Nur

October 27, 2020 6 Comments
Assalamualaikum, good day dearest ! Aku sendiri tak faham kenapa aku setkan schedule post untuk draft yang dah siap ditaip... Anyway, ni dia review novel melayu.


Tajuk : Kecubung
Penulis : Rosa Nur
Mukasurat : 595 pages
Penerbit : Karyaseni
Terbitan : Disember 2019
ISBN : 9789674691509
Blurb : 

Wajahnya cantik tetapi seperti pokok kecubung yang indah bunganya, dia memabukkan serta beracun. Di dalam dirinya mengalir dendam yang sarat dan perlu dibalas. Dia tidak akan puas selagi orang-oarang yang memperkotak-katikkan maruah dan menghitamkan kehidupannya masih lepas bebas di luar sana.

"Kurang ajar! Kau orang ingat aku barang yang kau pecahkan kat pasar raya ke, yang dapat kau tebus dengan membayar ganti rugi?!"

Siapakah sebenarnya perempuan yang sarat dengan dendam itu? Dan kenapakah dia menjadi seorang pendendam?
Sementara itu, peristiwa 5 tahun lepas...

"Siapa nama kau, hah? Kau cantiklah!" - EDDY HAKIMI
"Memang cantiklah perempuan ni, Eddy. Anugerah dari Tuhan untuk kita berempat kut?" - FARHAN
Kejar perempuan tu. Jangan bagi dia lepas!" - EDDY HAKIMI

Bencana menanti 4 jahanam yang tega menghancurkan hidup seorang gadis yang menghidap penyakit kemurungan. Dalam diam, dia dan sekutunya mula mengatur strategi. Siapakah sekutu gadis sarat dendam ini?

Orang-orang yang tidak bersalah telah dijadikan umpan untuk memerangkap 4 jahanam. Adilkah begitu? Setelah 5 tahun berlalu dan masing-masing mempunyai kehidupannya sendiri...

"5 tahun lepas, apakah dosa dan kejahatan yang pernah Ray lakukan?" - DARLINA

"Apa jenis soalan yang Darling tanya ni? Ada ke orang dalam dunia ni yang nak mengaku dosa-dosa yang dia dah lakukan? Kita mengaku dengan Tuhan aje tau segala dosa yang kita buat, bukannya mengaku depan orang lain. Itu umpama membuka aib sendiri!" - RAYKAL REDZA

Siapakah Darlina? Siapakah gadis yang berdendam itu? Dan siapakah Raykal Redza di dalam novel ini? Apakah dosa dan kejahatan yang telah dilakukan sehingga si gadis sanggup membunuh? Hayatilah jalan cerita yang penuh konflik dan saspens di dalam novel KECUBUNG karya ROSA NUR.
Okay, I personally think that this one is better than Psiko. Plot dia memang menarik perhatian betul. Masih lagi dalam topik dendam, macam plot novel Psiko, tapi yang ni aku faham lebih sikit. Cuma, watak Amna ni ada depression so dia punya tindakan tu tak macam orang yang menghidap depression. Or maybe I am wrong for stereotyping. Cuma itula, sekutu Amna ni pun kenapa tak buat report sebab first, depa sihat and paling penting ada saksi kot. Aduhai geram pulak bila fikir depa boleh setuju gitu aje dengan rancangan Amna.

Permulaan novel agak confusing sebab banyak sangat watak yang diperkenalkan sekali gus. My brain kenot handle that. Lepas tu, banyak kali berlaku perubahan masa dan tempat yang aku tak sedar. Baca punya baca eh rupanya kisah silam. Baca lagi jauh, oh dah back to present time. Poning den. Kisah silam tu necessary lah untuk diceritakan tapi macam tak de warning langsung. So yeah, very confusing at first.

Plot memang saspen lagi-lagi bila watak Darlina ni suspicious. Dari gaya dia melayan si Ray, macam dia suka lepas tu dok main tarik tali bagai tapi bila ada masa dia seolah-olah benci sangat dengan Ray. Tambah pula bila Darlina ni ada abang membuatkan aku terfikir yang sebenarnya Darlina is Amna yang menyamar. But girl, it wasn't as simple as that !

Watak yang menjadi target ada empat orang, and that still ada aura 'Psiko' lagi-lagi dengan gaya nama watak. Dua orang ada dua patah nama and the other two got one. Belum ada kepelbagaian pada nama mangsa. Agak tak seronok bila cerita banyak fokus pada Ray, Eddy dengan Azam je. Watak Farhan tak banyak diceritakan melainkan dia ada tunang dan akan kahwin hujung tahun. Babak dia dengan tunang pun sekali dua aje dimention. Watak paling menyampah? Ray la. Dasar lelaki tak reti setia. Hish menyampah kita.

Menarik bila penulis kaitkan tajuk novel dengan cara Amna nak hapuskan orang yang dia berdendam. Kecubung, pokok beracun. Sifat pokok ni pun boleh juga kalau kita kaitkan dengan Darlina, perempuan yang cantik tapi bahaya. Sama jugak dengan Amna. Cantik, tapi beracun membunuh!

Ending dia, memang aku tak sangka. At least, dalam ramai-ramai sekutu, ada jugalah yang masih ada kesedaran. Walaupun ada nyawa yang terkorban, tetap ada justice untuk mereka. Watak Ray pun terima padah. Paling puas kot apa yang dia terima tu. Padan muka. Tapi satu yang aku persoalkan, kenapa Darlina tiba-tiba jadi macam tu? Hm. Sebab dia terlalu sedih ? Ke apa. Walhal dia patut gembira. Hm, ke tak? Takpelah, taknak fikir.
