Nakahantad ang katotohanan sa harapan nating lahat. Marami bang mga mata ang nakakakita ng taas, luwang, at lalim ng mga bagay-bagay para maging totoo ang mga ito? Marami bang utak ang nakakatkat para busisiin ang mga bagay bagay at maunawaan ang lalim nito?

Nang mabasa ko ang screenplay (ng Bulaklak sa City Jail) ni Lualhati ay naglaro agad sa aking imahinasyon ang mga tau

This book has strong points but they are just enough to offset its weak points. In other words, I found some pages peppered with brilliantly written scenes but there were also those parts that made me sigh with boredom.

Not that Bautista wrote anything less skillfully than in her earlier books that I recently read and liked, e.g., Desaparesidos (4 stars) or Gapo (4 stars), but her approach in presenting Bulaklak ng sa City Jail seems, to me, like a rehash of the two. In this book, there is just a

Gustong gusto ko talaga ang mga nobela ni Lualhati Bautista. Hindi bumababa sa tatlong bituin (three stars) ang ratings ko sa kanyang mga libro kahit pa masasabing iisa ang estilong ginagamit niya sa kanyang mga kuwento dahil palaging bida ang babae, at kadalasan ay tumatalakay ito sa isang makabuluhan at napapanahong isyu.

Hindi na iba ang Bulaklak Sa City Jail sa mga obra ni Lualhati Bautista. Tulad ng kuwento ng isang inang si Amanda at ng kanyang pamilya sa panahon ng Martial Law sa Dekada '

It's like the movie "Miracle in Cell No. 7," but in an semi-opposite way.

“Wala akong maibibigay sa kanya," malungkot na sabi ni Angela. "Wala talaga. Ang alam ko lang ay mahal ko siya. Sabi n'yo'y hindi sapat 'yon? Pero matay ko mang pag-isipan, do'n mismo nag-uumpisa ang lahat ng relasyon. Ng babae sa lalaki, halimbawa. Ng kapatid sa kapatid. Ina sa anak.” 0 likes
