Review about Blind Date
Aliazalea second novel, first novel "Miss Pessimistic", entitled "Blind
Date" tells the love story of a 27-year-old girl named Titania. Titania is an
Indonesian girl who lives in the U.S.. Cultural differences are encapsulated in

Setting of the novel that takes an area in North Carolina, America, is
well described by the author so that the reader can imagine the situation
there. Once Titania was heartbroken because of her love affair with Brandon,

The first meeting of unintended continued to other meetings that
make Titania felt something in her heart. Not allegedly also turned Rilley is
one of the list of the men who organized the matchmaking. The stories of
romance was continued after they realized about it. The depiction of
American men on Asian girl becomes the topic that I love from the whole
