I’ve been reading Bob Ong’s books since college, ever since a friend brought her copy of his first book, A B N K K B S N P L A Ko (That reads as Aba Nakakabasa Na Pala Ako – literal translation: Wow, I Can Read Now).I found that it wasn’t much different from the voices of his other characters from his previous books but there’s this distinct Bob Ong feel to it that is familiar.The trailer is in Filipino, but you don’t really need to understand it to figure out that this book is horror, especially when you get to the last part of the trailer.I’ve read almost all of his books ever since then, always looking forward to his funny words of wisdom that pokes and reflects on modern Filipino culture.While I enjoyed reading it because of Bob Ong,...

Ong seemingly, inadvertently doesn’t classify the standby reader-listener and upholds the manipulation of writer intentions on reader audiences and reader thought.Unintended words, voices and readers are therefore not fictionalized because they are simply not defined according the assertions made by Bartholomae and Ong.Where Bartholomae and Ong put the reader/writer (in front of the text/work), Foucault suggests that author is merely a product of the text.With this analogy, I find confluence in central arguments made by Ong, Bartholomae and Foucault that are worth mentioning.However, for now, I am suggesting that a reader doesn’t “have to play the role in which the author has cast him” (Ong 60), but that there is more to it.
