Kung gusto mong maging manunulat,
Stainless Longganisa, the fifth book in Bob Ong’s collection, is by far my personal favorite.
First printed in December 2005, Bob Ong relates to his readers the very first time he holds a pencil, his writing influences and the process of writing his four previous books. He also tells us how he chose to become a writer, whether it was decided to be his destiny or just by sheer accident, it’s up to you to find out!
The “White Book“, in my opinion, is the closest to ABNKKBSNPLAko?!. (Arguably, the best in his series yet.) It has the same wit, humor, and cohesiveness as his very first work/masterpiece; but written mostly for aspiring writers.
Hari ka ng mundo habang nagsusulat. Akala mo nakasalalay sa mga isinusulat mo ang ikot ng mga planeta.
Don’t despair, for this book is written for anyone who aspires to be something and not just exclusively for writers. By reading this book, you could finally see his insights, share his experiences, and humanity. You can also learn a lot about the books he has written, with some random facts and explanations.
Highly recommended for everyone dreaming of being somebody and certainly a must-read for all Bob Ong fans. I don’t recommend this to be the first book you read in the series since you’ll probably get confused what he’s talking about most of the time. On the other hand though, it just might strike your curiousity to read all of his books as well! Now that’s what I call a Win-Win situation. ^_^
