Muhammad Ilham Khudzafi, alumnus of Udayana University and chairman of Book Lovers Community explained that this book review discusses “the study of youth love”, with the aim to explore the essence of the story experienced by the youth, so as not to get caught up in a destructive love game.
This book review discusses about the contents of the book entitled "Halaqah Cinta" by Arif Rahman Lubis presented by Ustadz Muhammad Sahlan, S.Pt who is also an alumnus of Udayana University. There is reason for the selection of book and theme were chosen to be a discussion. The days of being a student is a time when youth begins to know love. It seems that this study is quite interestin. Participants were also present from the youth, especially Udayana University students who are members of several intra campus and inter campus organizations such as UKKI FPMI, IMA Medicine, HMI and KAMMI.
"If we usually review a book on scientific studies, but this time we want to present a slightly different form of discussion related to youth that is already familiar," said Ilham.
Besides, Ilham also explained about the contents of "Halaqah Cinta" which discussed the essence of love, which is actually constructive to the development of the youth soul. Love is not the fanciful romance that has been imagined by the grandiose young man that will only end up with the feeling of ‘must have’ against the couple. In addition, it also delivered tips on finding the right partner.
