Bob Ong is one of my favortie author, not only because he writes about the real filipino but also because he's really funny..

For all those people who doesn't know Bob Ong (nakakahiya kayo, pilipino pa naman kayo, hehehe, joke!!!)


"Bob Ong is the pseudonym of a Filipino contemporary author. His real name is Roberto Ong. He has written six books as of 2007. The names of these books are ABNKKBSNPLAko?!(aba nakakabasa na pala ako "wow, i can really read now"), Bakit Baliktad Magbasa ng Libro Ang Mga Pilipino?(why do filipinos read books in reverse?), Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas(Judas' favorite book), Alamat ng Gubat(Fable of the forest), Stainless Longganisa(Stainless Sausage), and Macarthur. Sales of these books have surpassed a quarter of a million copies. It has been suggested that the poet, Paolo Manalo, is Bob Ong, but he has denied this. The books of Bob Ong are often humorous can produce feelings of nostalgia for the reader. Bob Ong also created a website (now currently down) called bobong-pinoy.com. It received a People’s Choice Philippine Web Award for Weird/Humor in 1998." (wikipedia)

so to everyone who have read his books and is a fan of him, what is your favorite book?

Personally i love his MacArthur, the issue that was presented was about drug addiction, what i love about it is that it approaches a different view. most drug addiction issues are based from the third person view, but this one, it really comes from the view of the drug addict himself. It's different because not only that it tells what effects drug addiction can do but it also tells the readers the cause of drug addiction and telling people that hey drug addicts are humans too.. And it's different from his other books, most of his books are written on first person view, but this is one is a real story.


A List Of Bob Ong's Book:

ABNKKBSNPLAko?!

Bakit Baliktad Magbasa ng Libro Ang Mga Pilipino?


Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas

Alamat ng Gubat

Stainless Longganisa

Macarthur


P.S.
didn't make this a poll so that everyone including those who doesn't know him can comment..



"According to De Vera, Bob Ong is “a publishing phenomenon whose blockbuster book sales are equaled only by the anonymity he maintains”. Apparently, the author hides behind the name Bob Ong and no one knows who is really is. His publisher protects his identity, although Ong says some of his fans have met him. This lends an air of mystery and people become more intrigued and curious. Those who read his work say that his writings are both humorous and insightful, has wisdom, humor and a flair that appeals to our Filipino way of thinking. Ong started a website called Bobong Pinoy that even received a People’s Choice Philippine Web Award for Weird/Humor in 1998. The success led him to publish his writings, thus the books, and all five together massed a quarter million copies sold. Not bad for someone “unknown”.

Just Additional Info On Bob Ong..

yes, bob ong is just his pen name. when you put bob ong together, it will be bobong, which is the name of the website he created, bobongpinoy.com. Quite a few times he mentioned on his book about his name as Roberto but even this is not confirmed. There are a lot of speculation who he is but i think he doesn't want to reveal himself yet.
