Blurb

Saw this English translation of a local novel at a bookstore:


Picked it up. Couldn't browse as it was wrapped, which I always find irritating. So I only had the blurb on the back cover to read. And this is what it said (I am not altering a single letter):

He is not the one who blaze all this thing happened. He only defend his family dignity who were brutally murdered by somebody. Hence, does he find guilty because of killing his aims, just return the vengeance?

The book is published by Creative Enterprise, one of the most successful publishing houses in our fair nation.

Looks like Matahari's gotta raise the standards if it wants to go up against the big boys! :D

Ted, don't tell anyone but ... the second edition of 'Malaysian Politicians Say the Darndest Things,' the one that's in the bookshops, has a typo!

Hi Amir,

If the blurb is any indicator, the content would be hazardous.

Maybe that's why the books are wrapped. :D
