Jakarta Book Club (http://jakartabookclub.com/) is celebrating its 5th anniversary!

“Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else.” ― George Orwell, 1984 (http://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/153313)

It's not even a month since our last meetup (http://www.meetup.com/Hang-out-with-Jakarta-Book-Club/events/224458507/), but we are too excited to keep this month's theme from you! Science fiction is surely something we often see in movies, like the epic trilogy of "The Lord of the Rings" or the dystopian trilogy of "Hunger Games". Now we want to chat about the novels, which usually contain futuristic settings, space travel, time travel, parallel universe, extraterrestrial life, etc.

Ladies, don't fret! This theme is also digestible for you, especially because we will have at least two female reviewers and moderators. Surely we want to hear perspectives from both sexes equally.

Expect to hear reviews on books like "1984" written by George Orwell, "Brave New World" written by Aldous Huxley, "Timeline" written by Michael Crichton, "A Scanner Darkly" written by Philip K. Dick, "Fahrenheit 451" by Ray radbury, "Slan" by A.E. van Vogt, and more (to be updated).

AGENDA OF EVENT:

• book reviews & discussion
• book swap (bring your old book and expect to bring home a "new" one)
• special: Introducing Ubud Writers & Readers Festival (http://www.ubudwritersfestival.com/)

We would like to thank all of your participation and support throughout this amazing year. Our hope is to keep nurturing this community and encourage more people to read and enhance their knowledge.

The discussion will be conducted in Bahasa Indonesia and English. This FREE event is kindly supported by GEPI (http://www.gepi.co/) and Kutukutubuku.com (http://kutukutubuku.com/).
