Peksman (mamatay ka man) Nagsisinungaling ako (At iba pang kuwentong kasinungalingan na di dapat paniwalaan) by Eros Atalia

I think it took me two months to finish this book.174 pages yet I was not so fond of it.

My boyfriend told me about its author. I think Eros Atalia became my bf’s professor back in college. He tells me how good Sir Eros.

For Cinemalaya 2011, his writing Ligo na U, Lapit na me became an entry to the said  Film fest. We wanted to watch it but because it was commercialized (as what my bf said), it was sold out in its CCP (Cultural Center of the Philippines) show during Cinemalaya week. After awhile, it was rumored to have a mainstream show. We grabbed that opportunity to watch it. It was about Love, life, sex and friendship.

I was somehow fascinated by the film. So I decided why not try to read one of Eros Atalia’s work. Peksman (mamatay ka man) Nagsisinungaling ako (At iba pang kuwentong kasinungalingan na di dapat paniwalaan) was what I purchased in the bookstore. A friend read parts of Ligo na U Lapit na me and told me that her head hurts because of too much info overload. I can’t seem to understand her that time. After reading a few chapters of Peksman, I understood my friend. Peksman was written in Filipino but I thought that eventhough words weren’t that hard, it will give you time to read it once more until you understand what the Narrator’s talking about.


My bf tells me that Eros would like to  bring to the mass theories and facts that the specialists or bright people point out. It is really hard to understand, but I got his point.

In totality, I neither liked nor disliked Peksman. I just think that it’s out of my league.

Peksman (mamatay ka man) Nagsisinungaling ako (At iba pang kuwentong kasinungalingan na di dapat paniwalaan): *I don’t want to give thumbs up here because I neither like nor dislike it.
