Susuk by Nizam Zakaria


Mamarazzi haven't touched a Malay Novel for donkey years already. That is until we went to BookXcess the other day.

She caught sight of this "Susuk"(Nothing to do with SUSU) and remembered that there was something on the television regarding this "Susuk". Cham liao...horror story ah?



I no eyes see. Sunday night, she read this book. Finished it in 2 hours straight. Betul betul siau

.

Story about an innocent girl, Soraya, that come to KL to engaged in a career of nursing. She was training to be a nurse and have a loving boyfriend.

She also dream of being a successful Singer one of these days . There seems to be not much hope of her achieving this dream of hers until she was befriends by a famous Singer, Rozana. Rozana told her the secret of stardom is Susuk. Susuk is something that makes a person look more beautiful. It's an ancient magic. Something like botox

This Rozana introduced Soraya to a bomoh named Effendi whom later planted Susuk on her request. Since the day the susuk was planted, Soraya's personality started to change. From an open and jovial person to a quiet person. At the peak, she even broke off with her boyfriend.

Meantime, there was a century old battle going on at the background. There was one undead Master of All Bomoh called, Dewangga. He was the man that manipulated and controlled various great leaders of the ancient Majapahit civilisation thru their wives or mistress whose susuk planted by him

This Dewangga have stored and hidden his "soul" somewhere thus nobody can kill him. And he survived this long is thru his black magic. He needed to be "latch on" to someone who will "suck" the energy from people around them.

Thirty seven years ago, Dewangga was going to perform the greatest susuk of all, Susuk Keramat on his mistress. But his adopted son, Effendi love his adopted mother very much and begged Dewangga to call the thing off coz he know the person whom Dewangga performed Susuk Keramat on will not have a good ending.

Effendi reason with Dewangga that all the planets will be in alignment again for him to perform Susuk Keramat in 37 years. Somehow, Dewangga agreed to defer but extracted a promised from Effendi. Effendi is to be his slave from then on.

Now, it's 37 years later. Dewangga seems to appear in Soraya's life. His intention does not seems to be noble. Effendi though is a good Bomoh, but his is a slave to Dewangga.

The ending...well..let just say Mamarazzi felt disappointed.


Can take off my hood liao. Not a scary story book. No ghost suddenly pop up. Nevertheless, Mamarazzi was rather happy and impressed that the standard of this novel is high. How to say ah...some how realistic without turning into a long winded sob story.

Was attracted to this book coz the advertisement on the TV previously.

Surprisingly the standard of the book is good.

smallkucing June 1, 2010 at 3:33 PM

No ending as in open ended ending. A lot of English novel and movies also have these type of ending. Maybe the author want to write a sequel gua

smallkucing June 1, 2010 at 3:34 PM  

claire

smallkucing June 1, 2010 at 3:36 PM

Mamarazzi come from Kebangsaan School where Malay is the main medium. So Malay books are "sap sap sui" to read.

After many years didnt read Malay books, was real surprise to see the standard had rise tremendously

ChloeRuoyi June 1, 2010 at 8:54 PM  

Cutenya smallkucing with that wizard hat :) Wah, can finish reading within 2 hours, it must be quite a page-turner lah. I think most of us kinda underestimate Malay novels. Some are actually very good.

smallkucing June 2, 2010 at 12:35 PM  

Mummy Gwen

Yes, the movie based on this book. Thought would be a scary book. Was 15,16, whether to read or not after pyurchase. End up reading. Not scary
