Okay please don't judge me please....

I really think that the book was okay, it was not really that heart wrenching and gripping like his other book For One More Day by Mitch Albom which I actually really loved and cried my heart into. But this book is really flat, boring, cliche, preachy and it really didn't struck any emotions at me at all. It's like I just read the sentences and it was just that. I really don't feel anything, I was being apathetic the whole time reading it. I don't know maybe it was just me being heartless and apathetic at the moment but Idk I really didn't enjoy the book as I was expecting that I would enjoy it since I already watch the movie version of this one and actually like it. But this one uhhm sorry Mitch Albom but I have to say that this is like Naaaaaddddaaaaa and Blaaaaah!

Okay sorry if I'm going to sound a little bit harsh this time but really who the shit put wrong tagalog words in the book? Considering that I'm Filipino and I really find it annoying that they got the words wrong and to think that the book was published with this misinformation crap. I mean come on...!!! Next time Mitch Albom next time research man, you're an effin writer and its really is your responsibility!

*Okay edit, edit*

Soldier= Sundalo in tagalog not Sundalong--"incorrect spelling/word used"
Mothers= mga ina not inas--"gramatically incorrect"

Yeah the book was OKAY and the movie was better than the book.

Teehee^^

Joyzi yeah don't read this one, better read For One More Day I love that one I bawled like crazy


Leah Interesting review - I think the book was manipulative and not in a good way.

Never apologize for having an honest opinion!


Joyzi Thanks Leah, that made me somewhat happy^^
