I read the book cover to cover, hoping that there would be some redeeming factor, but what little story there was appeared to be merely an excuse to loosely link pages and pages of wrongs. By and large, it is at the cost of the family that a woman is conditioned to subdue her desires and fit into the socio-cultural framework.


Sampai kapankah idealisme itu mampu tetap dipertahankannya sebagai prinsip hidup? Everybody who believes in humanity and is against religious extremism and fanaticism, should definitely read Lajja.
