    I have put off writing a review of this book mostly because it has a lot of relevance to what's happening in the country today. I feel like I need to do it justice (lol). Another equally intimidating reason is that this is its first review here, so I'm just going to put this out there: if you're a Filipino and you weren't alive during the martial law, you HAVE to read this. You don't even need to read the entire book.

You don't even need to read the entire book. A couple of pages are enough to raise your, as the author puts it, political awareness. Okay now that I got that out there, some thoughts about the book: When I bought this I initially thought that it's a diary written similarly to my own diary (i.e. full of daily trivialities with the occasional life epiphany), but I got more than I what I expected. One of the most interesting things about it is that it's written by a former AFP member. In a way, he's giving us an inside look at the shit going down in the AFP. On the other hand, the writer is prone to extreme (and redundant) statements that are borderline pretentious. It's like he's trying to write something that is similar to the books he has read. This is especially obvious when he tries to 'predict' the people power. It makes one wonder whether the diary entries are authentic. In spite of all this, the book proves to be an eye-opener. I hope it finds its way to our high school curriculum.
