First read for this year 2015, DONE!
Since this book was written in Tagalog, my language, my review will also be in that language...
Sa wakas. Natapos ko rin ang Moymoy Lulumboy! Marami ako'ng katanungan. Kahilingan. Kagaya ng sana nagkita silang mag-ina kahit sa dulo. Na sana kahit isang araw lang pagbigyan siya na makita si Moymoy at makasama at makayakap man lang. That's the least you can do for a hero. Yung bigyan mo man lang ng kahit maliit na reward.
Yung storya, maganda naman. Medyo minadali nga lang. Sana ginawa na lang series kasi mukhang mas okay pag series eh. Ala Harry Potter ba. Pero Pinoy version. Kasi yung parang nangyari sa libro, halos kalahati nong book eh nagpapakilala ng mga characters. Sabay sa almost ending, bam! Digmaan na. :/
At saka... Ang nagpababa ng rating ko eh yung... As far as I know Children's book to. Sa title pa lang Moymoy Lulumboy, ang Batang Aswang. Oo, may matatandang characters but still, majority of the readers are kids who are between 8 and up. Or 10 and up. Oo rin na masyadong advance ang utak ng mga bata ngayon. Pero ewan ko. Sa akin kasi once na sinabing Children's book, walang curses.
Walang mura. Kasi bata ang readers mo eh. It's like you're saying it's okay to swear. Na okay lang magmura. Ganon. Pero siguro ako lang yon. Hindi din naman laganap ang mura dito sa book mga twice or thrice lang naman. Still. *shrugs*
I still recommend it. Basta kids, wag kayong magmumura. Hindi maganda yun. Okay? :)
It's a really good one and I enjoyed reading it! :)
