Three Weddings and Jane Austen Free read ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Tak ada yang lebih membahagiakan seorang ibu daripada melihat anak gadisnya menikah dengan pria baik yang dicintainyaSeperti memiliki pajangan kristal yang indah dan sangat mahal memiliki anak gadis dewasa yang belum menikah rasanya selalu dalam kebimbangan Kalau dipajang takut dicuri orang Tapi kalau hanya disimpan takut tak ada yang tahu Dan jangan sampai pecah atau hilang karena kebahag. The importance of being married julukan sang penulis tentang novel perdananya Saat membaca halaman Tentang Pengarang saya kebetulan sudah melewati beberapa bab dan julukan itu seolah memandu saya untuk memahami ide sang penulisSampai segitunya Yaa terus terang saya tertarik pada novel ini karena judulnya Kepingin tahu apa hubungan antara ketiga pernikahan itu dan Jane Austen Terus terang lagi saya nggak pernah kuat baca buku Jane Austen sampai selesai Rasanya begitu laaama dan paaanjang untuk menceritakan sebuah adegan saja Dan itulah yang saya temui dalam novel ini Dialog dialog panjang yang membuat saya kagum pada penulisnya karena begitu sabar merangkainya Napas Jane Austen memang sangat terasa di sini dalam dialog dialog yang bercerita Baik dialog dengan diri sendiri maupun dengan orang lain Dan yang membuat saya sempat kaget penulisnya ternyata laki laki Tapi tidak terasa kecanggungan saat penulis bercerita dari sudut pandang perempuan Dan bukan cuma satu perempuan melainkan empat Empat perempuan berbeda usia berbeda karakter SalutSaya yang sempat skeptis di awal karena membaca Jane Austen pun tidak pernah selesai ternyata bisa menikmati novel ini Saya betah mengikuti dialog dialog panjang yang mengalir lancar dan luwes Paling paling saya sempat mengernyit saat bertemu dialog seperti ini yang terjadi saat Meri diajak makan di lesehan Jogja Lagi pula kalo di Jakarta mana ada tempat lesehan di pinggir jalan Hmmbanyak sih Mas saya sering banget ngeleseh di angkringan Fatmawati persis di pinggir jalan heheheJadi bercerita tentang apa novel ini Seperti halnya novel novel Jane Austen Three Weddings and Jane Austen tentunya berkisah tentang perjalanan dan perjuangan perempuan mencari jodoh dan memasuki gerbang pernikahan yang bahagia Dalam hal ini kakak beradik Emma Meri dan Lisa dibantu oleh ibu mereka Ibu Sri yang bertindak sebagai mak comblang teman sekaligus penasihat paling terpercaya Sementara Jane Austen bertindak sebagai perantara karena setiap kali putri putrinya menemui masalah Ibu Sri selalu mengacu pada pemikiran tokoh tokoh dalam novel Jane Austen Ada satu dialog yang pas banget menjelaskan alasan kesibukan Ibu Sri mendorong anak anaknya menikahLantas kenapa Mama suka maksa aku menikahNanti ya Em kalo kamu punya anak gadis kamu bakal ngerti banget rasanya Saya langsung teringat almarhumah ibu saya yang walaupun sangat pengertian tapi kadang kadang keceplosan juga mengutarakan harapannya ingin melihat saya segera menikah Saya juga suka renungan Emma yang saya rasa mungkin menjadi renungan banyak perempuanSelama ini aku selalu membayangkan diriku menikah punya anak punya rumah dan kendaraan dan berbahagia di dalamnya Tak ada yang salah dengan cita cita ideal itu Hanya saja saat idealisme dalam berkeluarga dihubungkan dengan batasan usia bagi seorang perempuan untuk menikah kesenangan mencari cinta lambat laun berubah menjadi bebanSeperti novel novel Jane Austen dalam pandangan saya kisah ini juga berjalan lurus tanpa kelokan atau tanjakan yang mengharu biru Namun twist di bagian akhir membuat nilai novel ini meningkat di mata saya karena beberapa kejadian yang dialami tokoh tokohnya yang begitu kental dengan nuansa kebetulan ternyata memiliki alasan bukan terjadi begitu saja Dan setelah membaca dengan adem ayem sepanjang novel setebal 457 halaman ini akhirnya saya berkaca kaca juga waktu Ibu Sri membisikkan nasihat kepada putri putrinya saat acara sungkeman di akad nikah merekaBagi yang sinis dengan pernikahan atau sinis dengan kegalauan orang orang yang menanti jodoh atau sinis dengan kekhawatiran orangtua yang ingin anaknya segera menikah mungkin novel ini juga akan dipandang dengan sinis Karena ya itu tadi novel ini memang berkisah tentang pentingnya menikah seperti kata penulisnya sendiri Meri pun menuturkannya dengan lugas kepada Lisa si bungsu yang kerap meragukan pernikahanTapi semua orang menikah Lis Berarti seberat apa pun pernikahan itu buat kehidupan seharusnya masih bisa kita jalani Kalaupun ada yang berhasil dan ada yang nggak ya seperti kehidupan kita pada umumnya mungkin faktor keberuntungan ikut menunjangAtau seperti kata Jane AustenHappiness in a marriage is entirely a matter of chance Pride and Prejudice PS Kalau saya jadi anak anak Ibu Sri mungkin agak bete juga ya setiap kali ngadu atau curhat mengenai masalah kehidupan malah disuruh baca Jane Austen hehehe

THREE WEDDINGS AND JANE AUSTENAn Indonesian Novel A Self Review by Prima Santika Nothing can produce a better feeling for a mother than to see her daughter being married with a good man she loves This is the tagline of my book It is written as the very first sentence in my book And if you re a real Jane Austen fan you should know that I m trying to have the same legendary most memorable tagline of all Jane Austen s work The very first sentence in Pride and Prejudice says it all It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a Wife Of course in my book the sentence is written in Indonesian language not in English And therefore one can not merely put the original Indonesian sentence into Google Translate and hoping to have the same effect while reading it in English It must be properly translated And maybe just maybe it is the reason why Jane Austen books have never been translated into Indonesian in a complete version There is one book though just produced few years ago that translates the full version of Pride and Prejudice into Indonesian language I admit I haven t read it I knew about it only after I released my book I just hope it has a good translation to the original version so that it could be marked as the pioneer in introducing Jane Austen s books to Indonesian people With the same spirit of introducing Jane Austen in Indonesia I then wrote this book Of course I m a big fan of Jane Austen I ve read all her six major novels and seen almost all the moviesminiseries about the adaptations of her works or the stories of her life This novel I wrote called THREE WEDDINGS AND JANE AUSTEN is my first mass produced novel published by Gramedia one of the biggest oldest most respectable publishers in IndonesiaThe other reason to write this book for me is to urge single people into marriage Now when I say people here I do mean it for men and women But I also realize that 90% of my book is talking about women s feelings and thoughts so I guess this book is mostly for women However if men would read this book all the way through I do hope that they could take advantage of knowing what women want and then lead them on into marriage Shortly I want this book to be useful for everybodyWhen I started to write this book in early 2008 in order to relate the most of Jane Austen s point of view with Indonesian way of life I had no other option but to put it into a good family perspective I could see a close relation in terms of manners and how to regard love and marriage in an ordinary modern well managed good moral Indonesian family with the ones in Jane Austen time Combining both similar values in one storyline seemed to be a wonderful idea for me to explore at that time And now voila My book is finally done and published in 12 January 2012 with a genuine hope from me the author that this book can reflect the perfect combination of the two And the other hope is to be a best seller book of courseABOUT THE BOOKThe book is in 464 pages with the dimension of 135x20 cm It contains one Prolog two Parts nine Chapters and one Epilog Some of the Chapters contain 2 to 4 Sub Chapters The story is told always by first person There are four main characters the mother called Ibu Sri IbuMrs and her three daughters named Emma Meri and Lisa Each character gets her own Chapter or Sub Chapter in telling her own stories In helping the readers to memorize in which character they are currently reading the book provides header in every page informing the Chapter s title and the character s nameTelling a story in first person while some characters sometimes fall into one same scene produces some retelling here and there However not all scenes need to be retold it s only for the important ones where the particular scene takes different impacts on each character By doing this we can explore into deeper feelings and thoughts by the characters in every meaningful scene For me personally as a starting writer I find this situation very interesting and challenging at the same time And the fact that the big publisher got it and then put it into a mass production gave me an utmost relief and a wishful thinking that people might enjoy this idea as wellTHE STORYLINEIbu Sri has three daughters Emma is 35 years old Meri is 30 and Lisa is 29 They live in Jakarta the metropolitan capital city of Indonesia The three daughters are all not yet to be married anytime soon and that makes Ibu Sri a little bit worry IBU SRIIbu Sri is a real fan of Jane Austen She has all the six novels and read it over and over again since high school Her high school period was in London and before it s over she has to move back to Jakarta where she lives ever since Her husband is a doctor in a particular hospital This father character doesn t appear at all in this novel He still lives with Ibu Sri and their three daughters but his presence is never told Both the Prolog and Epilog contains a letter written by Ibu Sri to her husband when she at last has a chance of visiting London again with their daughters after they re all married In those letters she tells him how much she loves and misses him The Prolog tells a brief summary about Jane Austen and her books In her letter to her husband she s reminiscing about how important those books are She even names her daughters after the characters in Jane Austen books Emma from Emma Woodhouse in Emma Meri from Marianne Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility and Lisa from Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice Although they re named after certain characters their stories are not necessarily similar to the related characters Ibu Sri uses Jane Austen books to give advises to her daughters on how to deal with love since their high school time until present days It s like a holy book of romance for her and she makes sure that her daughters will inherit all the wisdoms Jane Austen ever told in her books My dear Husband I don t know whether you felt it or not but the periods of searching for love and finding a husband were a very fragile phase for our daughters And I had promised myself never to miss those moments At that point I felt like being obligated to understand and to give guidance to our daughters as they re growing up Turned out I needed guidance myself Something to look up to something modern Religion was the most important value and it s mandatory for us to put it into their education Tradition norm and moral in living within the family and as part of society in Indonesia were also implemented in our daily lives But I needed something There were some values applicable in nature and related to romance in a girl s life as she s becoming a grown up that needed a comprehensive guidance to conduct Fortunately I found it not very far from my own all time amusement The Jane Austen novels And since the Prolog has revealed the ending of the story that all the daughters are finally married the heartbeat of this novel depends mainly in the journeys And the journeys in this novel are defined as wrong turns regrets lessons learned and letting go As the writer I just hope that these kind of journeys will keep the readers turning pages until the very end of the book And in the last chapter told by Ibu Sri there s a soft surprise on how the ending can be made possible EMMAEmma is the first daughter she s 35 years old with a boutiue business she owns She s the wisest of the three Patient controlled never to enter any conflict and always put on a happy face Inside she s just another girl with opinions criticisms and heartbreaks In the age 25 she s nearly married with a boy named Adit who s just as simple as she was in regarding love The wedding was off due to Adit s obligation to his family s economic problem He was to marry his far cousin to help his parents taking care of his little brothers and sisters As brokenhearted as she was Emma had no problem with letting go Her enormous patience let her think that Adit has done the right thing and she sincerely wished him and his wife a good marriage However Emma has never had a serious boyfriend ever since She has no problem in starting a new relationship with boys but unfortunately boys never took a second date with her Emma never complained about love or marriage and enjoyed herself being alone But Ibu Sri was of course concerned and doing anything she could to match her with any doctor in her husband s hospitalNow Ibu Sri has another doctor for Emma named Doctor Dian He s a good man with a warm sense of humor only a year older than Emma They attracted right away to each other and go on weekly regular meetings Not dates Emma is an Indonesian girl who s not allowed to speak her attraction to a man out loud She can only follow Doctor Dian s endless meetings without any assurance in getting any progressive affection from him Emma guards her heart for not falling deeper into this attraction just in case he d leave her without a causeDuring the period there s one occasion where the whole family of Ibu Sri s made a one week trip to Yogyakarta an artistic city in the middle of Java island of Indonesia attending a family wedding Here Emma was introduced to Krisna a widower ten years older than Emma with two little kids on a business purpose of Batik trading Batik is a fabric with Javanese motif Krisna is attracted to Emma for her beauty and her kindness to his little daughters As the business continues from Jakarta to Yogyakarta back and forth his feelings for her has developed without Emma ever knowing And to Emma s surprise he suddenly asks her to marry him Emma of course rejects the proposal by writing a letter to soften the news Not because Krisna being a bad character instead she highly respects him for being a good business partner but because she recently finds a progress in Doctor Dian s feeling towards her Unfortunately not too long after Doctor Dian makes a clear statement to end their friendship He s moving to a very far city and planning to live there for good without asking Emma to follow him as in a marriage Emma is of course devastated The story then moves to another city called Surabaya when the whole family once again takes a trip attending a funeral of a close relative Ibu Sri spots the gloomy air in Emma and then suggesting her to read Jane Austen novel called Sense and Sensibility Ibu Sri believes that this novel is contemplative in terms of letting go and acceptance and that Emma can relate herself to one of the character in this novel named Elinor Dashwood Emma then reads the novel finds peace in her heart and ready to open herself again into any relationship offered to her MERIMeri is the lovable one She s now 30 years old works at a bank and

regretMeri s sadness was seen very clearly by Ibu Sri And although she can t relate to any Jane Austen s character since none of them ever conduct an afair she offers Meri a Jane Austen book called Persuasion This book is suitable for Meri because of forgiveness and moving on content within Meri feels much at ease after reading the book and then dare herself to write a letter to Bimo asking for forgiveness telling him she loves him and sending him the Persuasion book Unfortunately Bimo never replies On the family trip to Surabaya Meri feels the need to move on and looking for a new love life
