    1. "One afternoon on a weekend in March, Dewi Ayu rose from her grave after being dead for twenty-one years."- Eka Kurniawan, Beauty is a WoundThis book has one of the best, most memorable opening sentences I've ever read. And it definitely set the stage for one of the most compelling and engrossing stories I've read in a long time. Over 500 pages of prose and I enjoyed every page. Even without having any knowledge of the history of Indonesia, I loved it.Indonesia seems to have had a turbulent hist [...]


    2. Fascinating Allegorical Tale of Indonesia f/k/a Dutch East IndiesIf you like tales of political/social allegory, such as Animal Farm and One Hundred Years of Solitude, that exercise your brain, without overly challenging to the point of losing intrigue, the kind of story in which you delight in discovering (or trying to) the metaphorical meaning of actions, characters and things within, then I recommend you put this on your list of books to check out.This brilliant novel reflects and criticizes [...]


    3. Eka Kurniawan, said to be following in the giant steps of Indonesia's most famous author, Pramoedya Ananta Toer (known for his anti-colonial and social realism tetralogy, Buru Quartet), is a popular literary young blood who could be as heavily influenced by a host of literary icons. His novel Beauty is a Wound is a 20th century Indonesian historiography told in the rich folklore of her culture; in gothicism that awakens memories of Lafcadio Hearn's chilling Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strang [...]


    4. "One afternoon on a weekend in March, Dewi Ayu rose from her grave after being dead for twenty-one years."Now that's the kind of beginning that will grab my attention!If you like the magical realism of Márquez (as I do), then this could be your cup of Colombian coffee - although it's set in Indonesia (the 'Colombian coffee' bit was my play on words cup of tea, Márquez being from Colombia oh, forget it).Dewi Ayu, village prostitute and misanthrope gives birth to a hideous little baby and dies [...]


    5. “It’s true that oppressed people only have one tool of resistance: run amok. And if I have to tell you, revolution is nothing more than a collective running amok, organized by one particular party”Beauty is a Wound is one of only two (so far) works by Indonesian journalist, writer and designer, Eka Kurniawan that have been translated into English. Twelve days after she gave birth to her fourth daughter (ironically named Beauty), Dewi Ayu, even at fifty-two still the most beautiful and desi [...]


    6. Rijetko se meni dogodi da odustanem od knjige i ne pročitam je do kraja jer si već nekako znam procijeniti što bi mi se svidjelo, a što ne bi Ali, u ovom sam se slučaju grdno prevarila (događa se i najboljima ;) ) Isto tako, želja da pišem osvrt i da svima pričam o nekoj knjizi najčešće me uhvati kada me neka knjiga oduševi Ove druge eventualno spomenem, u nekoj raspravi ili, ako me netko baš upita za mišljenje o određenoj knjizi koja meni, eto, nije sjela Ali, ovaj put ću vam b [...]


    7. This falls somewhere between a 2.5 and a 3.5. When I first started it I thought I was going to love it. It had many shades of One Hundred Years of Solitude. There were many things I did really like. The historical backdrop of Indonesia was fascinating and I ended up googling lots of things to learn more about the history. A lot of this book is political satire which never really works for me. I found some of the characters to be fascinating and I loved their stories but in the end there was far [...]


    8. Beauty is a Wound is the debut novel of Eka Kurniawan, which was originally published in 2002. This is the second time for me to read a work by Kurniawan (earlier this year I read Lelaki Harimau also known as Man Tiger and it is one of my favorite books). Compared to Man Tiger, Beauty is a Wound is a grand and quite over-ambitious satire. With the historic backdrop stretching across the end of Dutch colonialism of the Indies to the end of the 20th century, Kurniawan tells the story of an Indo (m [...]


    9. a beautiful, stirring, and powerful epic of indonesian politics and family, eka kurniawan's beauty is a wound (cantik itu luka) must surely be considered as one of the year's finest works of translated fiction. sweeping across decades and generations, beauty is a wound is a violent, enchanted saga, compelling on account of both its impressive breadth and storytelling verve. kurniawan, an indonesian journalist and author, published this remarkable novel when he was 27 years old (released in engli [...]


    10. Indonesian History as Fact and Fable"One afternoon on a weekend in March, Dewi Ayu rose from her grave after being dead for twenty-one years." Not your usual opening for a novel, is it? Dewi Ayu, formerly the most sought-after prostitute in the district of Halimunda, walks back to her house, takes a bath, and is reunited with her daughter Beauty, who she had prayed would be born ugly—as indeed she most certainly was. After a few dozen pages, the action slips back in time to Dewi Ayu's childhoo [...]


    11. DNF @ 40%This is a very rapey book and I really don't want to continue any further, specifically after a scene where a woman, after being gang raped on multiple occasions, is then consumed by lust for her "rescuer". No. Just no. I get that this book is satirical and allegorical and symbolic, but still. The author doesn't graphically describe the rape scenes but there are just so many and I am really not convinced that they are necessary to the plot. It's a shame, because I really liked the begin [...]


    12. This was an unexpectedly good book. Interesting, riveting, surprising, and by the end, all consuming. I listened to this on audible because at this time of the year, reading time is a premium. Simply put, I loved it and Jonathan Davis did a very fine job at narration. Not sure what I was anticipating, but this book took hold of me and would not let go. I would go so far as to call it epic. Part folklore, part Indonesian history, part magical realism, part allegory, part (fictional) memoir, it wa [...]


    13. 1.5 stars - I didn't like it.After an incredible opening paragraph, this one has begun to just disappoint and bore. DNF'ing around 75 pages / 15% in. I have had my fill of rape, incest and bestiality and am choosing to move on to another book on my never-ending TBR list. This one's just not for me. -------------------------------------------First Sentence: One afternoon on a weekend in March, Dewi Ayu rose from her grave after being dead for twenty-one years.


    14. dài kinh :'( đồ sộ kiểu sử thi bao trùm lịch sử Indo qua lịch sử gia đình âm hưởng nữ quyền rần rần xong lại còn ma mị huyền ảo cứ như trăm năm cô đơn nhưng mà cái kiểu kể tồng tộc đọc nhiều khi chán.nói chung là khủng khiếp, toàn hiếp là hiếp :'(


    15. There is so much rape in this book. I'm not necessarily averse to that but I have questions about how and why sexual violence functions as both plot point and constantly revisited method of characterization, as nearly all of the women in this novel - both primary and secondary- are defined and characterized by their brutal and repetitive violations. The novel was often beautiful and really well written. I can understand why it has drawn so many glowing comparisons to One Hundred Years of Solitud [...]


    16. An excellent and original tale. Lots of history, a bit of magical realism and fascinating characters.


    17. I have NO choice but to give it a 5. There is probably less than 3% of pages where I rush through my reading, but 97% of the plot and its characters intrigues me. The plot is ridiculous to the point that I have to close my book many, many times for me to take a breather, to take it all in before continuing with my reading. You really need to understand the mysticism of the culture and to be open to all possibilities before you read this. Otherwise you might not be able to accept what the writer [...]


    18. In 100 years this book will (still) be considered an important piece in our literary history. This is epic, compelling, hard, beautiful. It deserves the same recognition as A Hundred years of solitude by GG Marquez & Voltaire's Zadig. Top!


    19. Sama mbuletnya kayak novel 100 tahun kesunyian. Sama suramnya. Sama memusingkannya.------------------------Ini kisah yang rumit. Sudah lama saya mendengar nama Eka Kurniawan ketika sedang mengobrol dengan teman teman blogger buku atau sekadar melihat buku barunya di timeline. Terlebih setelah bukunya memenangkan anugerah sastra dan banyak review positif mengenainya.Ketika masih dalam tahap mencoba aplikasi IJak, saya langsung meminjam buku ini. Penasaran tingkat dewa. Kesan saya? Ouch, buku ini [...]


    20. I first learned of this novel from the BTBA (Best Translated Book Award) Fiction long list for 2016. I bought it because it is a fictional account of Indonesian history and because I liked the title. It was the last book I read in 2016. Filled with wild and crazy characters, featuring colonial oppression and the rape of natural resources and as well as a mixed race descendant of a Dutch East India Company trader, it covers war, communism, slaughter, rape, unstable politics, indigenous customs, a [...]


    21. This book was epic. It was full of violence, rape, mass murder, incest, bestiality and brutality. The narrative spans over many generations of the one family and isn't always linear. I loved this about the book - the complex family trees, the magic realism, the twists and surprises in the plot right from the very first line I was sucked in to what is essentially a ghost story:"One afternoon on a weekend in March, Dewi Ayu rose from her grave after being dead for twenty-one years." The combinatio [...]


    22. Let me get this straight: Beauty is a wound, because it fosters ill-will and causes chaos among men? Because men are such animals? What I don’t want to do is look at this story with the eyes of a haughty modernist, because this is meant to be an epic, and anyway its universe is not set in the rules of logic. But mannnnnnnnn, what is with all the zoophilia and raping and all the ‘making love’ and all those lol-worthy ghosts, and I cannot even be done with listing all the depravities in this [...]


    23. I've got to say that I don't usually read books that could be described as this one is in the "Description"! That is, one with as much violence--murders, massacres, rapes, etc. BUT, as hackneyed as it sounds, I could not put it down. I can't totally explain why, except to say that the writing is so amazing you don't want to miss any of it. And my burgeoning interest in translated fiction in general is part of it too. The fact that it won the major translation award recently supports my gut feel [...]


    24. (sebenarnya 2.8)kekuatannya ada di kandungan sejarah membaur dengan cerita sisanya, ini bukan buku untuk manusia lugu macam saya (heran, ngomongin seks melulu) dan keknya buku ini seharusnya bisa lebih tipis :D


    25. **Content advisory for discussion of multiple rapes.**My enjoyment of this book followed a kind of reverse bell curve, with a really weak back end. :( I started out really digging it--a magic realist family fable about a Dewi Ayu, a Dutch-Indo woman who comes back to life twenty-one years after she died (and after she gave birth to her fourth daughter, a monstrously ugly girl she named Beauty.) The prose felt solid and the voice was coming from an interesting, unusual place--the story had the fe [...]


    26. 3.5 stars. Impressively ambitious in its scope, especially considering Kurniawan was just 26 when this was originally published (in early 2002). By comparison, Isabel Allende and Gabriel Garcia Marquez were both 40 when their generation-spanning fabulist masterpieces first appeared on shelves.I bring up Garcia Marquez and Allende not arbitrarily but because magical realism (whatever that means anymore!) is unquestionably the main influence on Kurniawan's 470pp charmer (as you no doubt realized f [...]




    27. Ah, setelah berhari-hari berusaha menamatkan buku ini akhirnya 498 halaman berhasil juga kuselesaikan. Bukan karena buku ini tidak bagus, tetapi saking bagusnya aku perlu meresapi kata demi kata cerita ini. Jujur aku takjub dengan begitu banyaknya tokoh dalam kisah ini, tidak hanya membahas mengenai "Si Cantik" saja, tetapi kurasa hampir semua orang dalam kampung si Cantik ada dalam buku ini. Dan itu semua tidak sia-sia, penulis mampu membuatku terhipnotis untuk terus membaca dan membaca. Kurasa [...]


    28. I found this a real slog - I'm not a massive fan of the sprawling Marquez-esque approach to story-telling, and this is firmly in that vein, complete with ghosts, bullet proof men and more from the magic-realism playbook. An interconnected web of characters in an Indonesian city live, marry and die with 20th Century Indonesian history as a backdrop. I also found myself exhausted by the abuse of the (always young and beautiful) women in the story by the (always old and tough) men - there are innum [...]
