I always loved history but this book showed another side of history. Other side of heroes whom we believe as superhumans. Ocampo showed their human side. Suddenly the became real, like us. I can imagine being friends with Quezon, helping him in courting women. I can imagine hating the Luna brothers. I also enjoy the Spanish lessons, very enlightening. Every Filipinos should read this. This is the juicy part of Philippine history not taught in the classroom. I would definitely read more Ambeth Ocampo books!
