So I bought my first Bob Ong book last night while I was at Festival with the folks. I wasn’t supposed to buy because I still have a lot to read but books published in the Philippines had discounts and I wanted to use the points in my Powercard. I bought ABNKKBSNPLAKo?! for PHP60. Not bad, eh? I’m halfway through and honestly, I’m still waiting for those nuggets of wisdom that get passed around in text messages.
So far, it’s okay. But I’m not getting the whole picture about how much of a genius he is. I do find the quotes I receive witty, but I haven’t found any in ABNKKBSNPLAKo?! Maybe they’re in other books? This is my first taste so I don’t know.
I find Jessica Zafra funnier. Maybe it’s her jaded and dark sense of humor that gets me, but I still haven’t lost hope on Bob Ong. Hundreds of people can’t be wrong, right?
