As the first Filipino book I decided to read this year I had high hopes that I would end up enjoying my time with Edgar Calabia Samar’s Walong Diwata ng Pagkahulog My optimism was further bolstered by its glowing 410 rating here on Goodreads and its numerous reviews saying how much this work took them on a marvelous ride of emotions and self discoveryBut when it was my turn to read it I wasn’t captivated at all I was just or less confused There were many times when I wanted to give up but I was so desperate to give it a chance that I went on and on resulting in me getting and bewilderedThe book is about Daniel’s attempts at writing his first novel Along the way he is forced to confront childhood pains and family issues He finds inspiration from the stories of mythical creatures in his beloved hometown and from the authors and books he has encountered in his life The narrative is broken up into fragments changing perspectives without a moment’s notice Complicating it further is its time frame that jumps to the present and past with careless abandon The author’s fantasies bleed through reality until you no longer have a sense of what is real and what’s imaginedMy biggest gripe is that the author seemed too absorbed in himself I guess that is a perennial problem for stories with writers who talk about writing They tend to get too “navelgaze y” There were times when I felt like he just wanted to show off how unconventional he is and how well read he is Whatever he’s trying to say if there is one got muddled by his overeagerness to make his story “different” He talks a lot about Murakami and I’m guessing he’s inspired by him but at least Murakami knows when to obscure and when to peel off layers and present the simple truth in front of you With this book I just got endless obscurityI’m no stranger to Samar having read the first installment of his Janus Silang series I enjoyed it immensely and I know he is a talented writer Maybe this book just wasn’t for me I still look forward to reading his other works and the continuation of his YA series Transforming Students decided to read this year I had high hopes that I would end up enjoying my time with Edgar Calabia Samar’s Walong Diwata ng Pagkahulog My optimism was further bolstered by its glowing 410 rating here on Goodreads and its numerous reviews saying how much this work took them on a marvelous ride of emotions and self Sociology of Higher Education discoveryBut when it was my turn to read it I wasn’t captivated at all I was just or less confused There were many times when I wanted to give up but I was so Georg Buchner desperate to give it a chance that I went on and on resulting in me getting and bewilderedThe book is about Daniel’s attempts at writing his first novel Along the way he is forced to confront childhood pains and family issues He finds inspiration from the stories of mythical creatures in his beloved hometown and from the authors and books he has encountered in his life The narrative is broken up into fragments changing perspectives without a moment’s notice Complicating it further is its time frame that jumps to the present and past with careless abandon The author’s fantasies bleed through reality until you no longer have a sense of what is real and what’s imaginedMy biggest gripe is that the author seemed too absorbed in himself I guess that is a perennial problem for stories with writers who talk about writing They tend to get too “navelgaze y” There were times when I felt like he just wanted to show off how unconventional he is and how well read he is Whatever he’s trying to say if there is one got muddled by his overeagerness to make his story “different” He talks a lot about Murakami and I’m guessing he’s inspired by him but at least Murakami knows when to obscure and when to peel off layers and present the simple truth in front of you With this book I just got endless obscurityI’m no stranger to Samar having read the first installment of his Janus Silang series I enjoyed it immensely and I know he is a talented writer Maybe this book just wasn’t for me I still look forward to reading his other works and the continuation of his YA series

    He tries to write the perfect novel but the character's being is incomplete because the writer is incomplete He tries to uncover the root cause but it was uncovered to him He tries to find the truth but then he's unable to He went to boracay to search for the missing link Then he dies Because the friend died And his other friend dies Then the other migratedEight muses of the fall is the eight ways of dying That is my personal sentiment And really I felt irritated as I closed the book Cues WTF face

    This novel displays an elegantly underwritten narrative bereft of any pretentious attempt to use puristic Filipino language Edgar Calabia Samar brings you to a world you have always been as if you have never been there before a world of myths spirits and unexplained phenomena which we take for granted as mere urban legends handed down to us through generations since time immemorialSome people brand this novel as magic realist Granted everyone agrees it is Samar creates magical realism different from how South American writers do Unlike the archetypal magic realism where characters casually treat the unusual the most common thing imaginable the protagonist in this novel becomes ambivalent accepting his magically real world Yes some things are not normal the protagonist would think In other words the protagonist's recognition of the 'unusual' separates this novel from the rest of magic realist novelsFor instance Gabriel Garcia Maruez's novel One Hundred Years of Solitude brings us to Macondo a sanctuary for alchemy magic carpet literelly travelling blood levitating priest the almost invincible Colonel Aureliano Buendia and many other supernatural phenomena Another of Maruez's work A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings whose central character is described exactly as what the title suggests shows us a world where no bizarre creature deserves the village's awe fear and confusion Curiosity is the village's only reaction to the old man with enormous wingsOn the other hand Samar's novel cares nothing about the unusual's discovery nor it uses magic as an integral part of the plot's progress Rather the novel's magic remains as it should be a mystery Daniel's abduction by a tiyanak a native baby like monster arouses no curiosity nor it creates a conflict that he has to solve The novel's magical element becomes a part if not the subject matter of a metanarrative a story within a story Daniel's only problem is how to write his first novel or if he can write one at all He cares nothing about the truth behind anything unusual His bizarre experience even becomes something of an advantage In the end the innovative aspect of this novel is worth recognizing for the amalgamation of magic realism with the metanarrative The novel is magical if not itself magic This novel reuires multiple reading literally Everytime you read it you certainly will find something new It rather raises uestions than discoveries something that the author is successful with to make this novel wonderfully enigmatic It is rather Samar's successful attempt at creating his own world of magic realism

    I love this book Read it twice already It was a Murakami in Filipino language Well the narrator did say he like Murakami and reads them However this book will only remind you of Murakami but it has its own uniue and haunting voice It has lots of puzzles mysterious scenes strange parts and all things that makes it very appealing to me Very postmodern indeed I love the table with all the cute images This author is very imaginative and he certainly holds a great future ahead of him Exuisite I will be waiting for new works by this writer hungrily

    As the first Filipino book I decided to read this year I had high hopes that I would end up enjoying my time with Edgar Calabia Samar’s Walong Diwata ng Pagkahulog My optimism was further bolstered by its glowing 410 rating here on Goodreads and its numerous reviews saying how much this work took them on a marvelous ride of emotions and self discoveryBut when it was my turn to read it I wasn’t captivated at all I was just or less confused There were many times when I wanted to give up but I was so desperate to give it a chance that I went on and on resulting in me getting and bewilderedThe book is about Daniel’s attempts at writing his first novel Along the way he is forced to confront childhood pains and family issues He finds inspiration from the stories of mythical creatures in his beloved hometown and from the authors and books he has encountered in his life The narrative is broken up into fragments changing perspectives without a moment’s notice Complicating it further is its time frame that jumps to the present and past with careless abandon The author’s fantasies bleed through reality until you no longer have a sense of what is real and what’s imaginedMy biggest gripe is that the author seemed too absorbed in himself I guess that is a perennial problem for stories with writers who talk about writing They tend to get too “navelgaze y” There were times when I felt like he just wanted to show off how unconventional he is and how well read he is Whatever he’s trying to say if there is one got muddled by his overeagerness to make his story “different” He talks a lot about Murakami and I’m guessing he’s inspired by him but at least Murakami knows when to obscure and when to peel off layers and present the simple truth in front of you With this book I just got endless obscurityI’m no stranger to Samar having read the first installment of his Janus Silang series I enjoyed it immensely and I know he is a talented writer Maybe this book just wasn’t for me I still look forward to reading his other works and the continuation of his YA series

    I would have gotten the original Filipino version but this novel in English already does so well for me And if there is something significant about it is the fact that we are brought to the grey areas where imagination and senses reality and fantasy are brought together It's not as thorough as the Janus Silang series but it's also difficult to let go of the novel
