It is a seven-chapter book which is divided into non-fiction and fiction parts. The book highlights the seven deadly sins, namely, envy, anger, pride, covetousness, lust, gluttony and sloth. Like a typical Bob Ong book, Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas was written in an informal way which generates humor and contains some logical and philosophical instances. The book also features Filipino culture and truth about the religious faith of the Filipinos. It was then followed by the first chapter that tackles about the first deadly sin, the Envy. Before a chapter ends, the conversation of the two continues.

Sep 11, May rated it did not like it Shelves: philippine-literature. Dropped the book halfway I know, I know You're now asking "WHY? A brief background: This is the first and still the only Bob Ong book I had read And unfortunately, unlike many people, I didn't find it a fun read At the risk of sounding defensive, I believe I have a sense of humor.
In fact, I easily get amused. Okay, so there were some amusing parts in there, too Maybe, I just didn't get Bob Ong's acerbic wit?
Perhaps, Bob Ong's s Dropped the book halfway Perhaps, Bob Ong's style is not just my cup of tea. No, I have no problem with his informal style of writing. Yes, I have an idea of what he's talking about, especially with regards to our today's society. No, I didn't find this particular work as philosophical and "intellectually-stimulating" as many seem to think.
Well basically, almost everything he had written, you can already see, feel, taste, hear, experience, and think about first hand. I mean, do we really need someone else to spell it all out for us? And NO, I don't find our society's condition something to joke about anymore. Sorry if I sound way too serious, but I've long became tired of all this "joking" around just to "escape" and to lighten up the harsh realities of our country's condition.
I mean, our society's already in a "terminal" state, and we still find it amusing? I think I'm talking big right now - way bigger than myself. But hey, maybe it was just disappointment talking? For how could I not be? Before I started reading the book, the glass was half-full thanks again to the MANY positive feedbacks about it , but I came out of it with a cracked glass OR maybe, it's just me? Which is which?

Bob Ong is my favorite Filipino writer. He's also the only Pinoy writer I've read. His writing style especially in this book is very tangental in a good way. While there is a story--consisting entirely of dialogue--that goes through the novel, most of the piece is made up of humorous rants on pretty serious subjects.
Ong does an incredible job of looking at Filipino culture fairly and unflinchingly. He doesn't try to make bad things seem better, nor does he throw a pity party for all of the Bob Ong is my favorite Filipino writer.
He doesn't try to make bad things seem better, nor does he throw a pity party for all of the injustice in the Philippines. Furthermore, he sees humor in everything, which for me is the strongest aspect of his writing. Sa palagay ko, dapat itong basahin ng bawat Filipino. Sana nga lang, may translated edition para sa mga kabansa ko Americans para mas maintindihan ng mga kano yung Pilipinas.

No book has ever made me laugh so much until I read this. I enjoyed it so much that I just kept turning the pages even if my teacher was already discussing Yes, I read it secretly in school--whether it be during classes or breaks.
I even kept reading on my way home. He wrote his hilarious misadventures with so much wit to capture his audience. What more would you expect from the genius that is Bob Ong?
Definitely a must-read. Nov 17, Janus the Erudite Artist rated it it was amazing Shelves: owned-paperback , filipino-reads.

It is a deep understanding and complete trust in a thing or person. We are given freedom to believe in a religion and freedom to act in accordance with such belief. It's up to us who and what to believe even to those that is not based in proof.

When I first read the few pages of the book, I then realize that all chapters are divided based on the seven capital sins.
I thought that Bob Ong was only using Latin words or different terms but they are actually scrambled letters that need to rearrange to form words such as Envy, Anger, Pride, Covetousness, Lust, Gluttony and Sloth. I really don't understand what Bob Ong wants to tell in the beginning but when I come to know the titles of each chapter as I go on with the book, I learned that its contents have something to do with the title.
If only I don't get this, I probably end not liking the book which on the other hand, didn't happen. The book is completely different from other Bob Ong's books though some part of it is derived from his previous books as mentioned. Here, he talks about religious faith about God—his purpose and his creation and Christ; unlike in his other books that I'd read that talk about school, society and politics.
He also shares some stories about his journeys in life relevant to the capital sins.
Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas by Bob Ong
Also known as the The Black Book for the few. The story begins with a conversation between a two person who is unknown. The setting also is not clarify but I like the conversation because as Bob Ong writes, full of humor but at some point it will become serious. It will also question your faith in God. How deep you believe in Him and why do you believe in Him. Aside from the conversations, the book is also divided into seven parts that showcase the seven deadly sins. The envy, anger, pride, covetousness, slut, gluttony and lastly sloth.

I'll admit that the writing is funny, especially if you understand the type of language and sarcasm that's prevalent throughout the book. I have to say that I did get tired of it though, because I missed having a plot although I can't really imagine this book with a plot, really , and the humor felt a little redundant and tedious at times. It's an okay read in my opinion.

Review for Ang Paboritong Libro Ni Hudas by Bob Ong
It was his third published work and the first book where he first introduces fiction to his readers. The book is also divided into two different types—first is fiction ; the conversation scenes between the man who committed suicide and the other one, that he didn't recognize if it is God he was talking to, or if it is just Lucifer tricking him. The other one is nonfiction , in which the narration of the author's point of view. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Bob Ong. Bakit Baligtad Magbasa ng Libro ang mga Pilipino?
