Before you read this book, consider these plot points:

1. A blind woman (Ligaya) is raped.
2. The rapist (the protagonist) is excused of his crime because he shows remorse and he was drunk at the time.
3. Ligaya falls in love with her rapist because he helps her.
4. Said help would not have been needed if he hadn't raped her in the first place.

If the above offends you, don't read this book. Because that's what it's all about.

There is also the fact that there is a slut-virgin dichotomy within th

Lalaki sa Dilim (A Man in the Dark) tells the story of Rafael an eye specialist who one day had a drink too much that he was not able to control his libido when he saw a beautiful 19-y/o girl. The girl was Ligaya and she was sleeping alone inside her family's shanty. Because Rafael was drunk, he used his left hand to cover the girl's mouth while the other hand unzipped his zipper and forcefully removed the girl's panties.

The way he narrate it was perfect and the story do really thrilled me. I can remember that I was happy and excited when the truth was being reveal x)

Also, the two main character suit well together. I'm happy that th

Medyo nakakapanibago kasi bihira n lamang ako magbasa ng mga librong medyo naluma na ng panahon, ngunit hindi maitatatwa ang kahusayan at kabagsikAN. Nabigyang hustisya ang nangyari kay ligaya dahil hindi rin naman naging maganda ang naging buhay ni raf kay margie. Matagal na nga talagAng may mga liberated na babae sa pinas,napatunayan iyon sa tauhang si margie. Hanggang dito nlng dahil ang hirap mag type sa touch screen. Napakalaki ba nman kasi ng hinlalaki ko.

Masyado ngang maselang usapin ang Gahasa, at akala ko din magiging maselan ang bawat tagpo kapag binasa ko na, pero hindi naman pala. Maepektibong nailahad ni Benjamin P. Pascual ang bawat pangyayari at daloy ng kwento. Pagtataksil, kapangahasan, pagiging makasarili, makamundong bagay at Pagpapatawad.


---- kauna-unahang nobela na nabasa ko na nakalathala sa wikang Filipino.
kailangan ko pa siguro tong basahin ng Tatlo pang beses para masuring mabuti gamit ang Limang Dimensyon sa Pagbasa, (Project
