Our Darkest Hours Since this book is my first English book I'm uite tigilan na nga ito mag Filipino na lang Dahil nga ito ang kauna unahan kong aklat na Ingles na mga sanaysay parang isang sugal ang pagbili ko dito Nakabasa na rin ako ng mga Ingles na aklat pero kailangan ko at kahit ang mga nakatatanda ng diksyunaryo upang manamnam ng tama ang bawat salita Nakatutuwa dahil dahil sa aklat na ito hindi na ako matatakot na magbasa ng English works ng mga Pinoy Authors Magaling G ArguellesSa aklat While I'm reading Filipino na lang ulit Ayos Walong lugar ang napuntahan ko Maraming tauhan ngunit hindi ito balakid upang magulo ang pagkakasalaysay ng kuwento Magaan ang paggamit ng mga salita Isa na ito sa mga paborito kong aklat Sa awtor I am looking forward for your future works Sir Agad agad at walang ano ano bibilhin ko agad Pádayon riveting seems like a skilled writer although some of the stories seemed cliche and predictable Poorly written It surprises me when it switches between Filipino English and American English The writing is not consistent with the personalities and backgrounds of the characters And there are so many many many similes and random metaphors This book is okay based on the title and synopsis I expected intensity from the stories and characters It has its fair share of intense moments but I just think it lacks overall I still enjoyed reading it it just didn't give me the feels I'm looking for as it lacks intensity for me Still a good read Personally I absolutely adored the stories While not always being a fan of Noir fiction a key factor to why I enjoyed it was the wit and grace found in every page It painted accurate portraits reflecting little bits and pieces of culture found in the Philippines I managed to relate uite easily due to the homage to my country and oftentimes I found myself in mixtures of emotion From despair to peace of mind to full on raging at the characters this book somehow managed to sueeze it all in It was uite a fast read but definitely worth every page The Perfect Season short story is on my faves The eight stories in this collection grapple with the different ways by which humans handle frustration They may be ugly they may be ruthless but they remain dark mirrors of the world that we live in And who best to show us these hidden and darker selves than the men and women who have nothing left to lose who are trapped in their darkest hours and unable to wait for the coming of the dawn I've not read a lot of noir literature so this was uite a refreshing read that compelled me to adjust to the tone language and style No One Else But Us was especially interesting because it was one of the few stories where I felt the impending doom and the cold rush of fear the characters felt I'm disappointed though that this book wasn't proofread well enough to avoid the typos and grammar problems I personally like noir literature so I liked these stories well Also it being set in my home country is a big bonus and to an extent makes it relatableThe author was successfully able to incorporate urban legends ancient folklore a post apocalyptic setting and modern day problems in his stories proving his skill and talent Great read overall
