    I have to agree with Kuya Patrick's review: this book indeed is very short for its very heartfelt content. I've cried only once over a book, and that was for Louis de Bernieres' Corelli's Mandolin, and I was not prepared to shed tears for another time for another book. And this, Sir Wigley's book of memoirs, is one of those only two books which reduced me to sobbing. I seldom buy books that would cost me over a hundred and fifty pesos so when I bought this (on a sale, but still over a 150 pesos) I I have to agree with Kuya Patrick's review: this book indeed is very short for its very heartfelt content. I've cried only once over a book, and that was for Louis de Bernieres' Corelli's Mandolin, and I was not prepared to shed tears for another time for another book. And this, Sir Wigley's book of memoirs, is one of those only two books which reduced me to sobbing. I seldom buy books that would cost me over a hundred and fifty pesos so when I bought this (on a sale, but still over a 150 pesos) I have to make the most out of my money's worth. I did not read it on one sitting. Instead, I'd pick it up the shelf in a very erratic interval: once a day, once a week, twice a week, twice a day; and I was so disappointed with myself because despite all those measures to keep the book from being read I still found myself closing the book after reading its final chapters. It's that good. When you're reading a certain chapter, you're not really reading it but you're LIVING in it. With a prose free from any ambitious literary gimmick (which I do love too), one could not help but identify with the narrator. The last two chapters especially were the ones I was deeply saddened and enlightened with. Funny, sad, and enlightening, this book is perfect for all those who love, loved, and finds a reason to love their existence (and who wouldn't mind thirsting for more of Sir Wigley's narratives).

    I have to say: as entertaining as this book is, it's still too short. I wish it was longer. I have to say: as entertaining as this book is, it's still too short. I wish it was longer.
