    1. This is a story of a heartless selfish father whose life is examined through the eyes of his 18-y/o only child, the unnamed narrator. It covers the time when the narrator is still a young boy up to the time that he is a college student and he has to come back to his hometown to bury his father. The homecoming triggers the flurry of memories involving the people in his town, e.g his father, uncles, aunts, cousins, teachers, servants, tenants and even his first love. In the center of the town is a [...]

    2. "You are going to die," I told him."But I will die decently," he said, pausing. "Isn't that what we should live for?" His question had a quality of coldness, of challenge.Reading the first book, PO-ON, of the Rosales series last year by prolific Filipino writer and living legend F. Sionil Jose was a gruellingly reflective experience that awoken a dormant passion of the nationalistic sense within me that I never thought I ever had to begin with. I would go as far as to say that this should have b [...]

    3. Death---Tree is the 2nd novel of F. Sionil Jose's most epic work commonly known as the Rosales Saga. Five novels that spans 100 years that depicts Philippine History and portraying Filipino lives. The book tells a story of a young boy who grew up in a Hacienda up north with his father, relatives, servants and other people below his social class. His father was an "encargador" to a wealthy haciendero, Don Vicente. His father's task as an encargador is to manage and overview Don Vicente's land. As [...]

    4. The second part of the Rosales novels is a surprising departure in tone from the previous. In Tree, F. Sionil José allows the voice of a young first person narrator to do the telling. It is a narrative strategy that pays off with its intimate look at the early 20th century rural life in the Philippines under American rule. The narrator, an heir to a powerful landowner, reminisces about his childhood and his relations with the characters (his family's servants, laborers, and farm workers, all be [...]

    5. Tree by F. Sionil José is a very short (only 135 pages) book and yet its story is complex. Told in the point of view of an unnamed boy, this story tells of how his life was growing up in a small town surrounded by peasants who had become part of his life one way or the other.At a glance, this seemed to be a very simple story. But the truth is that it tells the readers just how ignorant most of our people are. And because they are ignorant, they are easily brainwashed, easily taken advantage of. [...]

    6. Like with so many of his stories, you have to wonder what part of Filipino history Jose would change if he could. He writes with such guilt. It's not a confession, though. He's done nothing wrong, other than to be born as one a bit more privileged than the rest. What does this get you? You're not welcome by either the hierarchy or the lower classes. You're stuck in the middle with no one but yourself, and from here there is no escape.

    7. Book #16 for 2014: This is the second book of the Rosales Saga. This is also my second Jose. In contrast to Po-On, I had a hard time reading this book because I was greatly disturbed by the amount of cruelty inflicted by one of the main characters to his fellow Filipino. I had a hard time reading about a master being cruel to his servants. The idea of having servants also distressed me since in our house, we don’t have household help. In our house, we do our own chores, prepare our own food, w [...]

    8. The first half of the book is strangely fragmented, more like a collection of short stories that often end very suddenly with a dramatic event. Maybe I just lack the background to really understand this book. I often felt like the stories confuse me more than show me anything new. I found the second half of the book much more interesting and liked the social criticism.

    9. I haven't read Po-on (#1 of the Rosales Saga) but still managed to appreciate this book. The book is written in English but for the most part retains a Filipino-ness that I can relate to. Except for the odd phrase "Man. There's a man" (at pages 130, 131 --I wonder if it translates something like the Tagalog greeting "Tao po"), the narrative flows naturally, comfortably and (to my delight) transported me to another place and time. I like how each chapter is a short story yet each contributes a pi [...]

    10. It is obvious that F. Sionil Jose's "Tree" is all about social injustice through the perspective of the young narrator (the son of a powerful land caretaker) who didn't do anything to remedy such injustices. We can get insights from that book regarding the irreconcilable contradictions between the rich and powerful on one hand, and the poor, the marginalized, and the weak on the other.

    11. 4.5A book that will definitely get a re-read from me. I think perhaps the first coming-of-age novel I've read that truly captures the feeling of seeing your privilege for the first time, or realizing how your comforts are taken from others. Looking forward to reading more of the Rosales Saga!

    12. bahwa agama dijadikan dalih untuk melakukan kekerasan, itu sudah sering terdengar. tapi yang jarang terdengar adalah bagaimana cara masyarakat asli merespon baik agama maupun kekerasan itu. sangat menarik membaca pergulatan batin sang tokoh yang awalnya berharap untuk menjadi pemimpin agama, namun takdir berkata lain. takdir yang membawanya untuk melihat agama yang selama ini dianutnya dalam sudut pandang yang berbeda. agama yang dikatakan sebagai pembawa damai, pada akhirnya justru -oknum- agam [...]

    13. What I like most about reading the Rosales Saga (so far at least) is the rawness of the dilemma presented. How the rich, the middleclass and the poor are all victims of their fate. There is a human side to every story and even then it is not enough to understand what keeps us protecting the system that strangles us to deathG Bingo Card 2016: Second book in a Series - 2/25

    14. To be honest, I would have liked the story more if it wasn't for that part where every other chapter endings, most, the character had to die for some reasons. I think it really depicts life but it would be better if it hadn't focus too much on that. Other than that, I liked how each setting is narrated. ^_^

    15. This novel was written 40 (?) years ago but why do we still see some of the characters today? This is an excellent work, every story left me with a heavy heart. *sighs*Looking forward to read other works of promising Filipino authors.
