K.D. Absolutely
Ang Tundo Man May Langit Din literally means "Tondo Has Heaven Too." It was written by Andres Cristobal Cruz who was born in the early 1930's and was a teenager when World War II came to Manila. He was in the city during that time and he and his family survived by planting "talinum" (a kind of herb) that they pushed by cart and sold at Quiapo. If he is still alive, he must be as old as my parents.

At Liwayway Publishing, he was junior to Liwayway A. Arceo, contemporary of Benjamin Pascual and Bie

2nd year college ako nung binasa ko 'to. Isang proyekto sa subject na Filipino na kailangan magsulat ng reaksyon patungkol sa binasang librong panitikan o Filipino related books.

Hindi ko aakalain na magugustuhan kong basahin 'to. 2011 ko pa nabasa pero tandang-tanda (medyo na lang :P) ang istorya ng librong ito. Ang dami kong natutunan na aral sa librong ito na hindi dapat maging hadlang ang pamumuhay ng isang indbidwal, hindi rin dapat maging basehan ito kung pwede ka bang umibig o mabuhay. B

This is one of those required readings for Filipino subjects in high school that I actually liked. With its plot's bones carefully molded at the joints to strongly deliver the meat that is the philosophy of the story, this is a good medley of social and political commentaries (Marxism?), a coming-of-age tale backdropped by the modern portrait of poverty and violence, and a touching romantic epiphany. It struck a chord with me when I first read it, partially because I felt the setting's descripti ...more

most intriguing yung part na nag-"open relationship" si Tonyo at ang "original wife" nito when the latter knew about Tonyo's affair with Flor. Poly-amory in a 1986 Pinoy novel? Mej wow.

Bilang isang taong laki sa Tundo, pamilyar sa akin ang mga lugar at mga araw-araw na pangyayaring nabanggit. Bagama't marami-rami na rin ang ipinagbago ng Tundo ng may-akda sa Tundong kinalakihan ko. Mahusay ang pagkakasulat. Sa totoo lang, hindi ako mahilig sa mga love story pero nagustuhan ko ito. Ang mga komentaryong panlipunan na nakapaloob ay nakatugma pa rin sa kasalukuyang panahon.

Boring. Same, repetitive issues/concerns throughout the book. Development of some characters towards the end was a bit abrupt.

Ang bawat isa sa atin ay may Tundo kahit ano pa ang iyong estado sa buhay. Ang iba'y umaalpas, ang iba'y pinanghihinaan ng loob at pinipili na manatili sakanilang nakasanayan.

Nu'ng mabasa ko ang isang chapter nito sa textbook nu'ng fourth year high school, ang una kong naisip ay "Wattpad." Dahil kumpara sa iba pang kuwentong pinag-aaralan namin, ito lang ang love story.

Karamihan sa mga kuwentong pinag-aaralan namin noon ay tungkol sa mga social issues; at ang ilan ay may elemento rin naman ng pag-ibig. Iba ang Tundo; kuwento ito ng pag-ibig na tumatalakay din sa iba't ibang isyung panlipunan, gaya ng problema sa akademya, pulitika, kapaligiran, atbp.

I wonder if it would be okay to review this in tagalog. Well, technically because it was written in our native language. Here goes...

Noong una ko mabasa ang aklat na nobela na ito ay noong fourth year high school ako. Sa huling taon ng aking Filipino Class, nabasa ko ang isang bahagi nito at napaisip sa mga susunod na pangyayari. Natuwa ako kung paano inilahad ni Andres Cristobal Cruz ang pag-ibig na nagsimula sa simpleng pakikipag kaibigan na unti-unting nagbunga ng isang tunay na pag-ibig. Hin

The first one that got me interested in Filipino novels. A feel-good novel that tackles issues in real life in such a way that does not bore its reader. One of the few novels that I have and can read countless of times.

I'm not into romance stories, but when someone asked me to read this novel because it might change the way I think about romance novels, I immediately grabbed a copy, and it didn't disappoint me!
