Who bought it: Me
What is it: A boy left by his own parents during the height of the World War II is harrowing enough. Hmm. This sounds like a devastating novel.
When: September 16, 2011
Where: Book Sale – Makati Square
Why: Listed in Time’s Top 100 books. By the way, I think the list that Time Magazine compiled is the best one. It may not be as comprehensive as other lists, with a glaring absence of classics, but as Time stressed, the books included in the list are the ones published during the magazine’s life time.
How much: Php 20.00
