Are you logical and respectful enough to post an argument about the book and not on the reviewer? Are you a Troll?
Siguro ganito na lang gagawin ko This was so disappointing parang gusto ko sumigaw ng Sayang, sayang talaga Sana binili ko na lang ng Krushers o kaya Twister fries nag-enjoy pa ako. Tae talaga.
Di ako natutuwa. Sayang yung papel na pinagprintan nung book! Sayang sa puno! Sayang sa ink ng printer! Wala sayang talaga! Cons: 1. Unang una ang pangit ng pagkakasulat. Yung format na ginamit e journal type, puro narration, kaunti lang ang dialogues at nakakainis pa yung ibang journal entry at parang mga siningit lang basta may mailagay lang tulad nito: Wednesday, Oct. Last day ng klase, pero noong Monday pa irregular, at marami nang absent.
Na-submit na namin lahat ng requirements, pasado naman lahat ng exam ko kahit yung iba pasang-awa lang, at napapapirmahan ko na rin lahat ng clearance. Nakatambay kami dito ngayon sa canteen, nagpapatay ng oras kakahintay kina Roy, manlilibre kasi yun ng sine dahil pasado raw sya sa Algebra.
Marami pa pong ganyan mga walang kakwenta-kwentang entries, tinamad na lang po magtype ang reviewer. Napakacorny ng jokes, ni isang joke dito hindi ako natawa. Corny din mismo ang horror story, hindi nakakatakot, mababanas ka lang. Wala akong pakialam kahit kanino sa characters dito. Napaka-boring as in define boring ang book na 'to!
Sa sobrang boring di ko namalayan na nakatulog na 'ko, daig pa nito ang Valium. Bob Ong please lang po di para sa'yo ang Horror balik ka na sa Comedy. Don't take this too seriously I am just being playful and childish when I made this one. F or the bloody second time in my opinion the book was overrated, boring, nonsense, lacks s u bstantial plot, c haracters, conflict and horribly written.
If you probably gave me this boo k without telling me that it was written by Bob Ong I probabl y w ou ld not r ecognize that he authored the book. I do believe that everyone has different taste in books as well as in f ood, fashion, movies etc. Or p erhaps because i t was a best seller? Or just because it was popular and the fa c t that Bob Ong wrote it?
Because I bloody respect other opinions and I was simply amaze by the fact that people have different views and that makes us more interesting and that makes reading more interesting! Or Amazed! As much as I wanted to say that we should exercise freedom of speech. This is my thread! And every hate comments I can bloody read it dumbass!
If you disagree with me post your own review, do something else and stop trolling on my review or maybe you can just coded message instead! XOXO, Joyzi View all comments. Dec 06, Janus the Erudite Artist rated it really liked it Shelves: owned-paperback , filipino-reads.
I was skimming through the bookshelves at National Bookstore when I saw this book upfront near the cashier. When I saw Bob Ong's name, I just immediately grabbed a copy and went straight to pay for it. So when I started out reading the book, I had no idea what it was about. Also, I've already stopped trying to figure out what Bob Ong's books were really about not until I've read it up to the last page.
I didn't compare it with his other books because, let's face it, he's one of the most unpredict I was skimming through the bookshelves at National Bookstore when I saw this book upfront near the cashier. I didn't compare it with his other books because, let's face it, he's one of the most unpredictable writers in our country.
One book cannot be compared with the other since they are all stand-alone. But then again, that's how it is for now. I can't say if he might think of creating a sequel Will he??? Anyway, as I was reading the first few parts, I was confused There are a lot of things left unanswered, like who's the girl Galo is talking about, what happened to Niko? What exactly had Galo been hiding?
But I can see the point in some of that, the book was written in a first person view. Galo's journal could be compared to anyone else's in real life. Halfway through the book, it started to creep me out I don't know if it's because of the book or because I get easily scared I'll probably go with the latter.. A few pages left I was beginning to close and open the book. I was debating between stopping to take a breath or the urge of finding out what would happen next this instant!
I shut the book hard when Bob suddenly scared the reader of being the spirit's next choice to possess. Although it scared me a bit, I don't think it was written simply intending to scare the reader.
Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan by Bob Ong
The theme of this book Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan, is more of a horror and adventure type of story. It showcased its horror genre especially from the middle to the last part of the story when Galo went to the house of his grandmother in their province. The weird beliefs and rituals wherein they always recite Latin prayers manifest the creepiness of the story. Thus, in terms of the linguistic approach or the language, the book manifests the time in which we have the knowledge on reciting prayers using the Latin language because it is the vernacular of the predominant religion in the Philippines which is the Roman Catholic. The book is not just a simple horror or adventure type of a storyline.
LOOK: Joshua Garcia joins cast of Bob Ong’s ‘Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan’
Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan  transl. The story revolves around Gilberto "Galo" P. Manansala, a college student in an unnamed university in Manila , and his journal entries that he writes for one of his college instructors. In the entries he describes how his everyday situations turn into scary situations, how he uncovers various mysteries and horrors, and how he gets deeply involved in these mysteries and horrors and, in the end, cannot escape them. Most characters in Galo's journal are people he encounters every day, and some are not described other than having their name mentioned. It can be concluded that these people, of whom little is known, are the people that Galo cannot understand very well, and that his thoughts stray away from them because of personal issues.
