Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas
Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas is the third installment in Bob Ong‘s book series. This time, the controversial author known for writing in conversational Filipino is back in his form and this was much better than his previous one.
The Black Book (again, according to his fans) is more cohesive (writing-wise) and more enjoyable. Written in a conversation type style, the whole book looks like a really, really long script between him and <._.> !
It was career suicide, according to his fifth book Stainless Longganisa. Covering topics about politics, showbiz,history and everyday life, which, according to him, should never be uttered in casual conversation. (How much more in printed book form!)
Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas is enjoyable at first and gets tiresome towards the end. (The opposite with Bakit Baligtad Magbasa ng Libro ang mga Pilipino.) The script type form was obviously a mistake but that’s how the author “obviously” wants us to see.
Nevertheless, this book is a must-have for any Bob Ong fanatic but definitely a weird one for a first-timer. (Which happened to me three Christmases ago!) Read it at your own risk…
