Binasa ko ito para tulungan ang anak ko sa kanyang final exam sa Filipino. Bukas yon. Nabasa na raw naman niya ito subali't nakalimutan na. Basahin ko raw at ikuwento sa kanya para maala-ala nya.

Ito ay nobela tungkol sa dalawang pangunahing tauhan: Si Nyora Tentay, ang usuherang nagpapa-five six at umaangkin sa lupang di niya pagaari; at si Caridad, ang tunay na may-ari ng lupa na minana pa nya sa kanyang mga magulang. Ang lupang ito ay nasa dulo ng isang kalye sa Maynila, ang Canal de la Reina.

I read this a long time ago for my Filipino project so I don't quite remember the story. But during those times, I think it was a good read. Maybe. Just as I said, I don't quite remember of it. Maybe it's time to read those books again.. and this one should be one of them.

I was too young to comprehend this book. I still don't understand anything from this book up to now despite the fact that we read this in class.

Kapit sa patalim, mga katagang naglalarawan sa mga taong nakatira sa Canal De La Reina. Dahil na rin sa kahirapan ng buhay kung kaya naman marami ngayon ang handang gawin ang lahat mabuhay lamang sa pangaraw-araw. Ang akda ay sumasalamin sa tunay na kalagayan ng lipunan malayo sa inaakala nating malafairytale na mundo. Natutunan ko dito na maraming tao ang mapagsamantala sa kalagayan ng mga mahihirap. Ang mga mayayaman ay lalong yumayaman, samantalang an

I actually finished this weeks ago. I only read this because it was our home reading assignment for school. The plot was pretty predictable, but it was an enjoyable read. It was fine, I guess. Junior was probably my favourite character, I don't even know why.

HRA.

This was actually really good. It was easy to read when I got really into it and I always asked my parents for the definition of the words I couldn't understand whenever they were around.
