Hindi ko inaasahan na magugustuhan ko ang novelang ito, nagkaroon tuloy ako ng interes pa sa iba pang sinulat ni A. Hernandez. Pero hindi ko rin inaasahan na gayun lang ang naging sinapit ng mga buwaya ng Sampilong ang akala ko pa naman ay mas masidhi at masmarahas ang magiging katapusan nito tulad ng mga tunay na nangyayari sa usaping lupa sa ating bansa. Dito pinatunayan ni A.Hernandez na ang batas ng Tao at ng Dios ang dapat at kailangang maghari. Tama nga siya, ukol sa lahat ang lupa :)

Lahat halos ng kaibigan ko ay nagbigay ng 5 bituin dito sa librong ito. Hindi ko sila sinasalungat sa pagbibigay ng 4 na bituin lamang. Pangalawang aklat ito ni Amado "Ka Amado" na nabasa ko at para sa akin ay mas superior ang kanyang mas malawak, mas komprehensibo, mas matayog ng Mga Ibong Mandaragit (5 stars).

Isang dimensyong lamang ang ipinakita ni Ka Amado sa Luha ng Buwaya. May kiling ito sa mga magsasaka at hindi binigyan ng puwang na magpaliwanag ang milupa (pinaikling may lupa) kung baki...more

Eto ang unang nobela ni Ka Amado na nabasa ko. Hindi ko inasahan na magugustuhan ko ang istorya kaya naman sa umpisa pa lang ay hinuhulaan ko na ang magiging katapusan ng kwento. Nagkamali ako sa hula ko.

Bihira sa akin na maapektuhan sa mga binabasa ko. Hindi ko inakala na madadala ako sa bawat tagpo sa nobelang ito. Nandyan ang nakikitawa ako sa mga biruan ng magbubukid, tumangis sa pagkamatay ng asawa ni Hulyan, nagalit dahil kay Don Severo at Donya Leona, nainis kay Dislaw,kinabahan dahil ka...more

I read this book for my highschool thesis. It was actually the first Filipino novel that I have ever read (as far as I can remember). It portrays the different social standings in the Philippines and is written in a way wherein it is very easy to understand and relate to.
Among other social issues tackled in the book are rape, the abuse of land lords to their tenants and corruption (in a small scale).
Rise
From a Filipino master of Tagalog prose, the story of a teacher who led the people in his village in resisting the machinations of the rich and corrupt landowners. It prescribes social organization and unity as keys to toppling the hideous reptiles in our midst. The novel is full of revelations about character while sharing ways of overcoming the travails of Philippine postwar agrarian society.

my generation grew up with him...a classic writer with classic themes of patriotism
Marc Kevin
Defines the classic struggle among the elite and lower class of the Philippine society. Encompasses that knowledge and unity are the keys to the success of majority, the book also shows the post-colonial and post-war situation of the Filipino life.
