I don't know why but I am not as satisfied as others experienced Andrea Hirata the author wrote it in a good descriptive way Unfortunately I get bored It talks about the education of students in remote area An education for the poor but the teachers teach that they don't have to feel shame due to their lack of financial status To be confident To stand up To express To actualizeIt is a good topic but I somehow get distracted with the way the author use the Latin names of plants I feel it isn't a smoothly moving How he associated a lot of things with certain figure which of course well known worlwide but not the common ones which makes me start to guess whether it is really a story of the people in remote areaI have been to remote area though only three districts Currently they can use television decoder to watch national and international television stations But of course the people in villages don't watch the international ones due to the language barrier And it is happening now how about or less two decades ago which is somehow be the current time of the story Thus I can't feel satisfied with this book

Lintang encounters many dangerous situations on the eighty kilometre round trip he travels by bicycle to attend school but he is determined to defend his father’s dignity and also become Belitong’s first Mathematician;
