Has anybody read Saman by Ayu Utami? I hear it is a must-read, but I wanted to hear some thoughts and opinions of the novel before I read it.

I read it in Indonesian when it first came out. I found the vocabulary rather a challenge -- there is a lot of slang and colloquial language in it that I'm not really familiar with. Having said that, it came across as an interesting experiment. I believe an English translation has come out recently. I might give it a go some time, see if I get more out of it that way.
