What Are the Three Must-Read INDONESIAN Books?
Hello Kaskusers,

I am here to ask local folks about Indonesian literature. I'm glad if you could share your recommendations.
Could you name three masterpieces in Indonesian literature available in English?
I read The Rainbow Troops (Laskar Pelangi) and that was awesome. Any genre is okay. Please provide brief introduction about your favorite book with Title/Author.

Thank you for your attention.
Some works of Pramoedya Ananta Toer's, especially The Buru Quartet:
- Bumi Manusia (The Earth of Mankind)
- Anak Semua Bangsa (Child of All Nations)
- Jejak Langkah (Footsteps)
- Rumah Kaca (House of Glass)

Another popular book of his: Nyanyi Sunyi Seorang Bisu (A Mute's Soliloquy)


Thank you so much.

I just googled the biography of the author, Pramoedya Ananta Toer. I truly want to read his books.

Thank you again!
I've read them all emoticon-I Love Indonesia (S)
I think one of them is Tan Malaka's Madilog (Materialisme, Dialektika, Logika [Materialism, Dialectics, Logic]). It tells about philosophy, maths, physics, chemistry, biology, social science, and other knowledge.
