Edgar Calabia Samar: Si Janus Sílang at ang Labanáng Manananggal Mambabarang



And myths So if you are one of those students bored with studying Philippine literature you might brush up on it again Cool Even I id take a fancy for it I have learned the lessons I had never learned by heart in schoolOn the other hand since it is now my book two I have pretty noticed Mr Samar s styles of settings and conflicts and resolution The pace of the story goes from the part that there is a mixture of suspense thrill and awe to the heart breaking part where the characters which he must have predicted that his audience will be attached to should sacrifice to A Guide to Americas Sex Laws dieThe impact It happened to me I was totallyevastated and annoyed at the author then I peevishly muttered under my breath why he always intends to o so Likewise although I can guess some inconspicuous inconsistencies he may have intended to make the supporting character of Mang Joey the leading bagani appear to be foolish A bagani who is expected to be omnipotent turns out to be a pipsueak Well as a rule this kind of character is banal in novels Thus I cannot blot out of my mind the idea that Mr Samar may have come to the point that he ran out of ideas unknowing how to get off the hook Just I am analyzing and I am now paralyzed as what the cliche goes The good thing is that the story is a very complicated case Dude how id Mr Samar connect all the scenarios from the book one with the book two The book one on the one hand is the revelation that there are mythical Philippine creatures beyond our imagination creatures I had never heard of unless you know a lot of Philippine literature So some words are so nakakadugo ng ilong The book two on the other hand is like opening a Pandora s box where the other covey of mythical creatures clambers out until they are on the loose The upshot of it is that you had better find a safe hideout protected with sanyang Gee otherwise it is going to be like a walking ead scene Besides it is a challenge for a writer to create anothre scenarios which should be relevant to the book one In this case Mr Samar is indeed creative and genius Ikaw naOne of the things I had not been able to o as a voracious reader is reading a book series just the like of Harry Potter by JK Rowling and Lord of the Ring by J L Tolkien During that time I still was not active on Goodreads Besides if I like to read them although I appear to be a late reader I still cannot afford them they can still percolate my purses Yay Nevertheless there is one thing I will for sure follow up with Si Janus Silang a very Filipino fiction created by our very own writer Edgar Calabia Samar Good luck Mr Samar I am now your avid fan so I am planning to read your other works. In nina Manong Joey Ipinagtapat naman ni Renzo kay Janus ang matagal na palang sinusundan ni Manong Isyo bumalik sa mapa ng utak ng alawang manong ang brain imprint ng Papa ni Janus at maaaring buhay pa pala ito.

M plausible new interpretations and turning everything on its head If you loved the first book PAKSHET ANO PA ANG INAANTAY N YO I could not put it Battleground Chicago down is probably the most cliched review someone could give but what can youo when it s true and that s the most Albert Camus direct way you could to say it I enjoyed it very much I was reading this while commuting because I was itching to find out what will happen and no matter how much I thought I knew what was going to happen I honestlyid not predict that ending The thing I noticed with both books in this series is that it was written like a one long narrative so the ending basically leaves the readers hanging and looking forward to the next book But my gripe with it being written this way was that the book feels like it wouldn t stand on its own and you Bitter Choices d need to read the first to fully appreciate the story it looks like its just one segment in this long narrative But that s just me Things I loved about this book 1 Miro the friend who happens to be gay was a refreshing addition just because I rarely see a gay character in a novel that is not an outright LGBT work 2 The expanded world the new characters the back back back that was intentional stories which proves again na Ang taba ng utak ng Author na ito 3 How Janus actually played TALA and now its not just some abstract idea of a gameOf course this goes without saying I m looking forward to the next Edgar Calabia Samar won the 34th Philippine National Book Awards in 2015 for his book one Si Janus Silang at ang Tiyanak ng Tabon as Best Fiction which I lavished with 5 stars the highest rating on Goodreads If he is given another chance to be nominated for this year I am pretty sure that he will gain the back to back victory Ang taray If I had a reputed name in the Philippine literature I would beat therum for him Or if I were one of the judges I would campaign or lobby my fellow judges above board for him to win Just it is magically and terrifically beautiful Mr Samar is incredible Believe you me I Bill Veecks Crosstown Classic did not expect this book two to be better than the book one It iseeper stuffier and creative the abnormally mitosis product of his wild imagination Besides he galvanized all the neurons inside my body I have found in this one how skilled in writing such a story Mr Samar is Marvelous First he mixes his story with the contemporary issues which every young adult can relate to like the super typhoon Yolanda that killed thousands of people Timely and relevantThat is why he mentions on the first pages of his book that some situations were based on real life Second as usual his trademark for using some characters based on Philippine folklore. Mula ng Christmas break nang mawasak ang proteksiyon ng mansiyon laban sa Tiyanak at sa mga kampon nito Matinding barang ba ito Nawawala rin si Mira ang isa sa kambal na baganing kasing edad ni Janus at inampon
