Father Solo and Other Stories for Adults Only by Isagani R. Cruz

Father Solo and Other Stories for Adults Only
This is a collection of 5 stories (Father Solo, Once Upon a Time Some Years from Now, Termination, Picked, What I Did Last Summer). This is labelled "For Adults Only" not just because of its erotic content, but also because of the ideas here that young minds may not appreciate or understand. (For example: politics, psychology, academic pursuits, etc.)

The language is lovely, the storytelling is neat and superb (although Picked here needs some getting used to), and the plots were quite unexpected for me (I had some shock to get over here and there, but that's what makes it interesting!).

This book is just a few pages, so I read it in more or less one sitting. Quick, easy, mature.

Sa kakaunting salita lamang, andaming misteryong magbabalandra sa harap mo.

Sa ‘sangdaang kwento, marami kang madadaanang klase ng panunulat. May kwento ng pag-ibig, paghahanap, pagpapas√°kit, pananaginip. May kwento ng lungkot, ligaya, takot, pantasya.

Sa ‘sandaang salita, buo na ang diwa – at mayroon ka pang mananamnam na aral habang pinapagpag ang natirang mahika sa mga salita.

PS: Dapat lang yatang basahin ang mga paunang salita mula sa mga pamamatnugot. Doon nila ipinapaliwanag ang kanilang *mga* layunin sa paggawa ng ganitong klaseng libro.

PPS: Natuwa rin ako sa maiikling biograpiya ng mga manunulat. (Mahahanap ito sa mga huling pahina.)

{100 na salita}
