I enjoyed how she narrated part of her life to pursue her dream as a published author with English as her second language. She made her simple life interesting and remembered every detail in her life. She could blend the story of the past, present and her dream for the future well in her novel. She told her stories in bold frankness, sprinkled with her cultural upbringing and native Bahasa Indonesia language, making her novel unique and one of a kind. She valued family, relatives and friends and they became part of this novel.

Enthusiasm is an interesting novel to read. This novel will be a source of inspiration and encouragement for women seeking to move forward in their life. It can be good resources for everybody who wants to be a writer. She shared her brilliant ideas and marketing efforts, used her blog as a marketing tool to connect with people as many as possible, learned from the great writers, and valued people’s feedbacks.

Anyone who has dreams of becoming a writer or anyone who are simply looking for an inspiration in their life to pursue a goal or a dream should read this book. (Theivanai, Malaysia)

Enthusiasm enlightens any aspiring writer to follow his or her dream of writing a book. Her novel is a testament to how she never gave up despite a myriad of obstacles. She didn't let language barriers, family responsiblities or critics deter her from her dream. Her passion, tenacity and "enthusiasm" are worthy of admiration and emulation. ~ B.B.
