In goodreads.com, Matthew Lopez wrote the following review after reading the book –
To be honest, the book is a difficult read. It is raw and uncensored, and you are thinking this cannot be real. But sadly, this is true narration of one of the darkest chapters in modern Philippine history and the excesses of the Martial Law regime. This is a mandatory read in schools, colleges and should be distributed in other countries.
Matthew had also tweeted to me the following message earlier:
On the day the dictator’s corpse was secretly buried in Libingan ng mga Bayani (Heroes’ Cemetery), Matthew tweeted that he had rushed to the People Power Monument clutching two books instead of a placard:
Neil Perez explained why he chose not to go that night to the Edsa Monument.
Meanwhile, in the south, Marion, with Tweeter handle @AirForceOnce, said that when he went Christmas shopping, he ended up buying our book as his Christmas presents.
There are so many more readers who have tweeted to tell me that they have bought, read, or can’t find the book. My deep thanks to all of them for caring about the future of our county.
When Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach asked Jason on Twitter what he was reading, he replied:
As a writer, I have always accepted that writing is a lonely craft.
But I never expected that once a book is released to the world it takes on a life of its own. The book Marcos Martial Law: Never Again is now in thousands of book shelves all over the country.
For that I am so grateful and so very touched.
I will soon have a book signing at National Book Store. I will post when and where.
