    Not really a lousy book Especially at the start, I thought that the Garcia spent a lot of time doing the right things, e.g., showing not telling, almost consistent POV, interesting build up of characters, etc So, I thought that I would somehow like this children s or YA horror book.But I did not The author did not do anything for me to dislike her book I just did not feel anything after finishing finishing this yesterday It felt like a mediocre book or maybe it was not written for me Ang Li Not really a lousy book Especially at the start, I thought that the Garcia spent a lot of time doing the right things, e.g., showing not telling, almost consistent POV, interesting build up of characters, etc So, I thought that I would somehow like this children s or YA horror book.But I did not The author did not do anything for me to dislike her book I just did not feel anything after finishing finishing this yesterday It felt like a mediocre book or maybe it was not written for me Ang Lihim ng San Esteban tells the story of an 12 y o boy, Jacobo who spends his summer school break in his father s hometown in San Esteban in Ilocos Being an imaginative boy, he is very interested to stay there because of the many stories his parents told him about the town when he was still very young There he befriend Emil who is the most intelligent boy Together, they discover the secrets about the old haunted house located just beside Jacobo s room in his grandmother s house.Recommended to all young city kids who dream of visiting their parents hometowns

    I read this as it is a required reading for Grade 5 students It was a quick and easy read FIlipino novel I actually had fun reading it The experience reminded me of reading a children s lit I wouldn t say it is bad It has merits on its own and the author is worth receiving some credit for the effort, the imagination, and the adroitness with the language.

    I will admit that my review is a little biased Since Filipino is not my first language, it isdifficult for me to understand books written in that language In fact, the reason I read this was solely so I could complete the Buwan ng Wika Readathon So, if the books I had given a five star rating to were written in Tagalog, I would probably only give them a three or a four.Now, with that aside, here s what I think Objectively, the book isn t really that bad I just thought the plot was ove I will admit that my review is a little biased Since Filipino is not my first language, it isdifficult for me to understand books written in that language In fact, the reason I read this was solely so I could complete the Buwan ng Wika Readathon So, if the books I had given a five star rating to were written in Tagalog, I would probably only give them a three or a four.Now, with that aside, here s what I think Objectively, the book isn t really that bad I just thought the plot was overly simplistic and predictable I m sure children would appreciate thisthan I did, but I don t think they would fall in love with the book either It s kind of like the short stories they re required to read for Filipino class easy and light, but not really memorable It doesn t have characters that you could get attached to either.Normally I would give books with simplistic plots a three star rating So why did I give this 2 5 That s where the language part comes in.For someone whose first language is Filipino, the vocabulary would be fairly simple And it was, actually It just took me a while to process it That s why it feltlike a chore than something I would do for pleasure The story was only a hundred pages, but to me, it seemed to drag on for 500 It s not because the pacing is slow in fact, it s really quick, if you ask me It s just that it sdifficult for me to understand when it s written in Tagalog.Even if this book was written in English though, I would probably still give it a maximum of three stars The plot isn t unique and the story lacked substance If you re looking for good books to introduce Filipino children to reading, I would not suggest this one Maybe kids would enjoy books by Xi ZuqThey re also in Filipino, in case you re wondering I don t know, honestly But I know this isn t the best place to start Kids want stories that have relatable characters and interesting plots, and this book had neither So while children might not necessarily hate this, it s unlikely that this would become a favorite

    For a kid s book, it got me.You d expect an attempt of a horror story aimed for children Well, it kinda did in a way It tried to imply supernatural horror though, but the latter half paved way of another form of horror A refreshing read in these times.

    Forgot what it was about Totally not that memorable.

    Hindi ko namalayang isa itong kuwentong pambata, subalit masaya itong basahin lalo na t tungkol ito sa mga alaalang lumilipas at sa mga bagay na mahahalaga t nararapat lamang matira.
