Indonesian's Most Powerful Book

Laskar Pelangi
Laskar Pelangi adalah novel pertama karya Andrea Hirata yang diterbitkan oleh Bentang Pustaka pada tahun 2005. Novel ini bercerita tentang kehidupan 10 anak dari keluarga miskin yang bersekolah (SD dan SMP) di sebuah sekolah Muhammadiyah di pulau Belitong yang penuh dengan keterbatasan.

Mereka bersekolah dan belajar pada kelas yang sama dari kelas 1 SD sampai kelas 3 SMP, dan menyebut diri mereka sebagai Laskar Pelangi. Pada bagian-bagian akhir cerita, anggota Laskar Pelangi bertambah satu anak perempuan yang bernama Flo, seorang murid pindahan. Keterbatasan yang ada bukan membuat mereka putus asa, tetapi malah membuat mereka terpacu untuk dapat melakukan sesuatu yang lebih baik.


"Sebuah novel yang sangat menggugah. Siapa pun yang membacanya akan termotivasi dan merasa berdosa jika tidak mensyukuri hidup" - Andy F.Noya, Host acara dialog Kick Andy

"Cerita Laskar Pelangi sangat inspiratif. Andrea menulis sebah novel yang akan mengobarkan semangat mereka yang selalu dirundung kesulitan dalam menempuh pendidikan" - Arwin Rasyid, Dirut Telkom dan dosen FE-UI

Note : I come from a very poor family. During my childhood, My father always told me that he don't have anything to give me ACCEPT sending me to school. He always advised me to study hard coz Education is an Asset and he will do everything to pay my education fee. Alhamdulillah education has change our family economic status. Thank you father and mother. Laskar Pelangi will always touch deep of my heart and remind my those days. I'm really hope that our poor communities will change their perception on education.
