The Funniest Book

The funniest book I have read is none other than Bob Ong’s “ABNKKBSNPLAKo?!” It is meant to be read phonetically as “Aba, nakakabasa na pala ako” (Wow, I can read now). I was rolling with laughter alone while reading this book.

“ABNKKBSNPLAKo?!” is a straightforward intra-narration of the writer’s journey himself from the grade school days up to his adolescent era. I can picture myself while reading this and cannot help from saying “It happened to me too”, which made it even funnier. I can relate to trumpo, sipa, Game and Watch, etc. Since then, Bob Ong became my favorite Filipino author. Based on his narrations, I guess we are of the same age. If you want to laugh, then you must read this book. It will surely give you a heartfelt laugh.
