    I'm still trying to make sense of what I just read Atheis obviously means atheist in English by Achdiat K Mihardja is considered an Indonesian classic from 1949 the year when Indonesia was officially recognized as an independent nationHasan the protagonist of the story is born into a devout Muslim family He grows up respecting his parents and following strict Islamic rituals which gives him peace of mind One day he encounters a childhood friend Rusli and his female friend Kartini Hasan is fascinated by them; Rusli is well traveled and elouent while Kartini is a very modern free and beautiful woman He visits them a lot and soon finds out that they are atheists Initially Hasan tries to convert them back to Islam but he soon fails and discovers himself being influenced by their Marxist Leninist ideas On top of that he meets a friend of Rusli called Anwar Anwar is an artist and a very convinced atheist Anwar accuses Hasan of being double faced hypocrite Under Anwar's influence Hasan's life takes a turn for the worse He becomes estranged from his parents and sister upon their discovery that he has become an atheist He marries Kartini knowing that Anwar has an eye for her too and becomes a very jealous angry and wife beating husband His mind is confused and chaotic and he contracts tuberculosis At this point I was like whoa? Is this a book advocating for religion? But then I remembered the foreword and how the novel should reflect Indonesia's transition from a colonial to an independent state how people are torn between tradition and modern influences of globalization Religion doesn't seem to be the main focus but one can easily interpret it that way Thus why I removed a star from what could've been a 4 star book In my opinion the strength of this book lies in the realist depiction of human flaws We really get to see Hasan at his weakest how he falls deeply in love with Kartini because she simply resembles his first love how he is easily influenced by the viewpoints of his peers and how easily he adopts their views as his own and finally how he allows jealousy to destroy his relationship with Kartini Maybe the author is trying to tell me But I can't seem to figure it out

    This book is an ambitious project which tries to discuss multiple ideologieslife perspectivespoints of view but in the end fails to reach its potential premise leaving some ideas hanging unsatisfactorily and having its most important message obscured by the tragedy of its unfinished protagonistThe book writer excels at offering the readers with different perspectives on how people should value life through different characters in the story Through the main protagonist Hasan and his parents we see those who see that life is about religion and religion wholly encompasses life In these people's belief there's nothing else to life but practicing religious rituals to obtain heavenly rewards and to avoid hell's eternal torture Related to this spiritual mindset there are several minor characters that represent those who believe in mystical world of ghosts and spirits Through Hasan's friends we are introduced to different schools of thoughts There's Rusli—the liberal radical and revolutionary—who argues that life should focus on what we are now dealing with—about resolving social political and economical issues of our days Therefore he dismantles the irrational worship of God and redefines the meaning of God's presence as the weak and suffering men's escape Then there's Anwar—the anarchist—who contends that man should be the focus of everything should be beyond any rules and formalities Lastly there's also Kartini—the feminist—who's supposed to represent the empowered group of womenI humbly think that to say that the author doesn't offer his own stance is rather misguided Since the author himself shows that he's a character in the book the second narrator he himself actually offers which line of thought he sides with More in line with Rusli but minus his attitude toward Godreligion the author proposes a rational and logical attitude that keeps uestioning things and searching for answers by ourselves Thus I would argue that this is the actual main message that the author would love to send across to the readers we should not blindly nor irrationally follow somethingsomeone not even the notion of Godreligion but instead we should be rationalHowever this bookthe author fails to emphasize that point by making Hasan as the main character Firstly this makes the other perspectives offered by the other characters seem as if they are just the side ideas less important Secondly since the story continues by following Hasan those people and the ideas associated with them are also left behind later on in the story Rusli and Kartini who actually represent brilliant ideas just stop existing later on Worse Kartini who's supposed to be a forward thinking strong woman ends up becoming a powerless abused wife Thirdly I think the tragedies in Hasan's life I won't discuss these here to avoid spoiler would actually shift the readers' attention making them think that this whole book is about the negative conseuences of becoming an atheist Worst comes to the worst I can see people use this book as an examplea warning that those who dare to uestion thingsto think liberallyto think rationallyto be critical toward religion will face the same tragedies that Hasan has facedAll in all this book is still worth reading but it's best read with an open critical mind Read with a cemented dogmatic fanatic mindset this book might become nothing but a further justification for despising those being an atheist or to be precise being rational and critical

    The Atheist is the February choice for our Indonesian bookgroup First published in 1949 this novel is recognised as a masterpiece of modern Indonesian literature and was included in the UNESCO Collection of Representative Works before that translation project 1948 2005 was defunded by the UN Interesting too — considering its subject matter and the Indonesian hostility to atheism because of its association with Communism — is that the novel received an award from the Indonesian government in 1969 not long after the Indonesian Communist Purge of 1965 66 with an estimated death toll of between 500000 to one million deaths Perhaps given his membership of the Socialist Party of Indonesia it was just as well that in 1961 Achdiat Mihardja took up work as a lecturer in Indonesian Language and Literature at the ANU and Canberra remained his adopted home until his death in 2010 aged 99It’s interesting to me that this book remains in print and well known if the pages and pages of reviews at Goodreads are anything to go year The significance of this book is that in 1948 9 with the possibility of the creation of a new independent nation clearly in sight an Indonesian intellectual was imagining what kind of society the Dutch East Indies might become ifwhen it became free of the colonial masters who had ruled it for centuries Indonesia had declared its independence in 1945 two days after the Japanese surrender and it was fighting a bitter war with the Dutch who were determined to hang onto their colonial possession Mihardja knew that independence was inevitable and he knew that decisions made about a constitution and government would be critical to its futureSo The Atheist explores the ethics and conseuences of a capitalist or a socialist future; and through its main character ponders the possibility of an Islamic or a secular society By contrast books exploring Australia’s possible post colonial future have lapsed into obscurity In 2018 I went to a Rare Books Week event here in Melbourne presented by scholar Zachary Kendall it was called ’19th Century Visions of Australia’s Future’ Zachary showcased a collection of books written here in Australia at the turn of the 19th century and how in the leadup to Federation in utopias and dystopias writers were contemplating what kind of society we might have The themes that Zachary identified in his collection were Socialism Federation and independence Foreign invasion Women’s rights Secularism Christianity and Spiritualism Unsurprisingly these themes are also present in The Atheist To read the rest of my review please visit Be warned it's uite long because it's such a fascinating book

    Sorry I've been writing paragraphs on paragraphs these past two weeks so my English isn't the best right now I enjoyed this bookWidely regarded as one of the most innovative novels in Indonesian literature as the first book to use three points of view it's a refreshing and a much easier read as Mihardja wrote this in an instructional manner It guides the reader toward one specific interpretation of the novel the main idea that pieces everything together I feel like that's saying something for a relatively heavy theme I think this gives it a substantial reason to you know beI like how its meant to be treated realistically like real life people but just with fake names and fabricated backstories inspired by true ones as opposed to being a symbolic text that challenges philosophies and religion Instead it's merely a reflection of how things were at this particular period which I do admire Mihardja's writing is excellent and at times humorous Good book Read read read

    In attempt to read Indo books I stumbled upon this one An Indo classic published in 1949 Turned out to be different than I thought it was going to be I personally think it wasn’t about atheism the title and religion at all rather it was a historical piece that focuses on a young man’s Hasan who is raised as a conservative muslim journey in finding his own truth confronted with the developing thoughts at the time from his peers on marxism lennism anarcho nihilism Interesting and fun read felt like I was part of the book discussing worldly matters with all the characters while having a coffee and a smoke Also loved the cute little love story between Hasan and Kartini which didn’t turn out to be cute at all towards the end This book was probably taught in Indo schools but as an Indonesian myself who never went to an Indo highschool I find historical fiction like these very intriguing Definitely an important read😁

    Lovely Old syllables and termas are here and there Give you an uniue experience on being Indonesian in the first decade of the RepublicThe plot? I'm sure it was one of the most modern in its age of writing The characters development were intense That the inner battling mind of Hasan was beautifully flayed by Abah KartaBonuses is when you find Prophet Muhammad Marx Engels Sartre Freud Garbo Chaplin Gable Leigh in a complex discourses within an ambivalence mind of a man

    I first read Atheist during middle school and I liked it I'm twice that age now and I still found this book fascinating; re reading Atheist was a treat for me It means that God like opium is a source of comfort for people living in misery and hardship a source for forgetting the sadness and suffering of an imperfect world We mustn't forget as I explained to you the other day that religion and God are the products of an imperfect society and are clearly the creations of man in a state of utter despair Rusli page 79 An atheist as depicted in this book with the character Rusli or Anwar is a great speaker; they like debate they deify their knowledge as a God and they seem to know a lot of things and above all they are not afraid of seemingly everything They have great confidence and as portrayed with the character Rusli are wise men While our main character Hasan is a cocky coward who is easily influenced by his surrounding and just follow things that pleases him He doesn't have firm standing on his belief; that is why he is constantly swayed with emotions and that finally destroys his life he doesn't even try to survive In the end I would say that Hasan portrays most of the Muslim in Indonesia We don't usually have firm standing on our belief but unfortunately we think we have one Well maybe it just me?

    I was in Bali when I finished my book Now what? I looked for a bookstore and found that there was one not too far away so I went to take a look None of the many western second hand books available really caught my attention but then I noticed this section with Indonesian books I grabbed this one and decided to buy it after reading the coverTurned out to be a great choice For a western person used to a society with a lot of values that differ a lot from the ones in a Muslim society this book provides insights into what it most likely would be like if by chance you were born in another part of the world The book tells the story of a man born in a devout Muslim family who grows up feeling the importance of a connection to God and the values that are inculcated to him by his religion But he ends up meeting an old school friend who presents him a very different way of thinking His friend is a Marxist and thus rejects religion and the existence of God The main character ends up finding doubts in himself and faces an intellectual and spiritual crisis I think the book paints a nice picture of how ideas religious or not ultimately shape the actions of people and how in the end the abandonment of religion may not be as easy as a western secular mind would suppose
