NO.
Please.
Do not let me relive those goosebumps I've had on that ship bound for Mindoro as I was reading this book.
Perhaps the smell of crude oil made me dizzier than I though the book had?

NO.
The book was crazy.
All the while you were laughing your butt off at characters who displayed the typical way stories crop up.
Families fighting.
College.
Province trips.
Yes.
Typical, I say.
Too typical to be even accused of a bad twist.
Perhaps it was just the wind that was spinetingling?

NO.
The book was creepy.
I could have never imagined myself going to a place where eyes drop off practically anywhere.
Ooooooooooooooh.
There went my chills again.
It's been a year since I've last laid my eyes on that book and the thoughts of it still bring the horror a Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan is about a college student, Galo, who decides to go back to the province to take care of his Grandma.
It turns out, his Grandma, and the old town his Grandma lives in, is stranger than it used to be.


If the book’s cover doesn’t give it away already, Mama Susan is a horror story.
Wikipedia says it’s a “mystery novel” but Mama Susan is really a shitinyourpantsat3am horror story.
Or maybe I’m just a scaredy cat and I shouldn’t have read it during the wee hours of the morning.


It’s written in diary form so of course, the story telling is limited and the reader is aware that the narrator is sitting down somewhere, writing in his notebook.

Reading it was like an editorial article full of facts but funny, intended not only for young but also old adults .
Besides, I sensed his hidden blaze of nationalism.
Amused, I borrowed original post at One More Page

Note: I wanted to write this review in Filipino, but since it's crossposted in my blog, I had to write it in English.
^^

I've been reading Bob Ong's books since college, ever since a friend brought her copy of his first book, A B N K K B S N P L A Ko (That reads as Aba Nakakabasa Na Pala Akoliteral translation: Wow, I Can read Now).
Bob Ong is one of the popular Filipino writers, who, until now, I am not sure if he is really one person or many contributing to one book.
I've read almost all of his books ever since then, always looking forward to his funny words of wisdom that pokes and reflects on modern Filipino culture.
I remember resorting to his books whenever I needed a pickmeup, and since then, he's become one of those authors that I spent a good portion of my time laughing real hard after I finished the latest addition to Bob Ong's viral books, Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan.
Again, Bob Ong never fails to amuse his/her (I'm not aware of the author's real gender, nobody knows, I think) readers by his amazing prowess in choosing and stringing the right set of words from the often complicated bowl of Filipino Vocabulary.


I laughed real hard cause I was scared when I was on the last page.
I was paralyzed when I read that weird chant.
God.


Below par with ABNKKBSNPL Ako, but it's definitely a satisfying read, a perfect tool to kill the time.
Ô Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan Ú Dear Diary Readers,

This book is epic.
Actually only the ending was really epic.
The whole book is like a replicate of a diary which was supposed to be the owner's school journal, since his old one got lost.
Anyways, the first few entries in the diary were mostly plotless, but midway, the book gets exciting.
The story begins to be scary only several entries before the final one (for me at least), but the ending was absolutely mindblowing.


P.
S.
Huwag mong bibigkasin ang hindi naiintindihan.





Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan by Bob Ong is a journal of a 16 year old guy named Gilberto P.
Manansala also known as Galo.
An engineering student who just broke up with his girlfriend.
Just like a typical student, house, school and mall are the settings for his daily life.


Through this diary he narrated his experience for the past few months.
Because it’s a requirement to Ms.
Lao, his professor in college, Galo wrote his own journal and became his hobby.
He lived in Manila for the sake of studying in a good school, with his Aunt Auring and Uncle Dindo, together with his cousins Julius, Ariel and Jeng.
By living with them, he witnessed how spoiled and tamper are his cousins, and how stubborn and formidable are his aunt and uncle.
He felt that he is not part of the family because of their approach to him.
His day starts and ends with their dog named Clinton.


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 unpredictable writers in our country.
One book cannot be compared with the other since they are all standalone.
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.
.
.
actually.
.
.
up until finishing it I'm still confused.
I was trying to review this in English but I failed.
hehe

Okay naman siya.
Di ko masyado nagustuhan.
Parang nagattempt si Bob Ong ng horror pero di masyadong patok.
Sana mas nakakatakot pa! Umaga ko siya tinapos sakaling matakot ako o hindi ako makatulog sa gabi! hehe Hindi ako natakot, konti lang.
Pero natetempt ako itranslate yung mga Latin dun sa book.
Try ko nga! :p

Eto yung sa last page:

tu una cum vitiis tuis es locus pugnae inter bonum ac malum certamen universum eo modo decernetur quo daemones tuos superabis.
noli finem omnium in terra malorum optare dum in pugnis mecum cottidianis superaris.
mene cognovisti, lector? me luminibus nocte exstinctis omnino videbis.
tibi soli semper adero.
nos una in aeternum coniuncti erimus

Google Translate:

you together with your vices are located in the same way the whole of
