I just bought this Lite/Light Novel at Gramedia.
It cost me 50K IDR, kinda pricy. But, it was worth the money.

Japan Light Novel are rarely translated here, last time I saw a Light Novel, it was not worth the money because the printing quality is suck.

When I was at Gramedia yesterday, I saw this book. And almost popping my eyes out because the price is 5x higher than Manga in here.

But then, there’s a sample that already opened. Surprisingly, this book is using Dust Jacket. I like it!

Bookmark bonus, good to keep track on your reading progress

And after I saw the printing quality, I decided to buy it because this kind of book might not appear anymore when it sold out.

If you like to read a novel but with simple and less narration/explanation heavy text, this book is good for you because Light Novel is a dialog driven story. And this is the reason why Light Novel is easy to adapt into an Anime because the script writer task is less burdened :D

      Sorry for my late reply. I just got back from my birth village for some family matter.

      The story is good. Not the best, but good enough for people who love to read a story from different perspective/point of view.
      If you are hoping great mystery or great story telling, you will disappointed. Because the author does not even trying to throw a bait for the reader’s curiosity.
