“But what if I should offer you my aid?”

Basilio shook his head and remained pensive. “All the tardy vindications of justice, all the revenge in the world, will not restore a single hair of my mother’s head, or recall a smile to my brother’s lips. Let them rest in peace—what should I gain now by avenging them?”

“Prevent others from suffering what you have suffered, that in the future there be no brothers murdered or mothers driven to madness. Resignation is not always a virtue; it is a crime when it encourages tyrants: there are no despots where there are no slaves! Man is in his own nature so wicked that he always abuses complaisance. I thought as [66] you do, and you know what my fate was. Those who caused your misfortunes are watching you day and night, they suspect that you are only biding your time, they take your eagerness to le. . . Read More

El Filibusterismo, is the second novel written by Philippine national hero José Rizal. It also serves as the sequel to his novel Noli Me Tangere. El Fili as it is popularly called, is a darker and more evolved novel compared to Noli. It's a book about revenge, manipulation, deception and greed to...more

The sequel to Rizal's masterpiece it stands as the most subversive work of them all!!!

El Fibusterismo (The Subversive) is the sequel to Noli Me Tangere (Touch me not). You have to give it to Rizal, he sure knew how to title his books! For me, book titles are as good as its cover. Aside from book cover, the title of the book is the very first thing that caught readers' attention. I...more

"In the meantime, while the Filipino people may not have sufficient energy to proclaim, with head high and chest bared, their rights to social life, and to guarantee it with their sacrifice, with their own blood; while we see our own countrymen in private life feeling shame within themselves, to...more

My third time to read this book, El Filibusterismo but my first time to read it in English. My edition of this book (translated by Soledad Lacson-Locsin) won the 1996 NBDB National Book Award for Translation. I think the book deserves that award because Lacson-Locsin spoke and wrote in both langu...more

El Filibusterismo (The Filibustering) is the sequel of Noli Me Tangere. These were the two published novels by Dr. Jose Rizal, the national hero of my country, the Philippines. Noli and Fili, along with his other writings, caused his death by firing squad on December 30, 1898 or around 2 years be...more

Maaaring may mga spoiler at kung anu-anu pang mga bagay na walang kinalaman sa libro o sayo.

Dati kung tatanungin ako, alin ang mas magandang akda ni Rizal, lagi kong sagot Noli, kahit hindi ko naman majustify ang sagot ko. Pero ngayon, ngayon nabasa ko na uli ang El Fili, El Fili na ako forever....more

Not for me to criticize a piece of work that is not just a national treasure, but contributed to the execution of a man. In addition to providing a wonderfully detailed snapshot of those times, El Filibusterismo is a vehicle for a myriad of ideas and solutions for the Filipino people during the S...more

No reading is ever the same. When I first read this book as a requirement for high school, it was nothing to me as a lame, boring story of the past misfortunes by Dr. Rizal's brilliant mind. It was yet another Noli Me Tangere. But when I read it again before the start of last semester, there were...more
