The Blair Book Project

Hello! I'm Janus. I am a 3D Graphics Artist by profession, and a proud Book Addict - i mean Enthusiast, and Blogger. I'm very much into Young Adult and Fantasy genre but I open myself to reading other genres from time to time. I run a blog launched as The Blair Book Project on Blogger, where I post entries such as my book reviews and other book related articles. I obviously got the name of this blog for the movie "The Blair Witch Project," why the name you may ask? I have no idea! I just thought it had a good ring to it. Ha! Ha! I post reviews twice a week and I regularly participate in book memes and features that readers and blogger all over the globe share their book interests (i.e. In My Malibox, Top Ten Tuesdays, etc). I have 230 GFC Followers. My blog has over 37,000 pageviews history and have roughly 200 page views per day. I have written over 267 reviews since my span of blogging. I am also an avid Instagram user, with over 350 followers, where I post pictures mostly of books I'm currently reading, books I got for review, galleys, purchased from bookstores, etc. (Statistics as of March 2013). My book reviews are not exactly "reviews" in a sense because I simply just type down what I feel about the book. What I write is solely my opinion and should not be taken as a definite basis of how the book is to be judged entirely. We all have different likes and dislikes so please do understand that although I'm very optimistic about the books I read, there will be negative comments towards those that I don't find suiting for my taste.

Kapitan Sino

Kapitan Sino - Bob Ong I’ve always been curious to see what Bob Ong would be offering his readers, so of course, as soon as I heard about Kapitan Sino, I anticipated its release.The waiting was certainly worth it. The first few parts where slow to begin with but as you flip through page after page, things do get interesting; as long as you have the patience to give the book a chance. As I closed this book after reading the end of it, I was downhearted. It’s sad. Sad to see how the truth really sucks! The book may’ve been fiction but everything, aside from the super power and monster-fighting thing, was reality! The poverty people experience; the lack of provisions, equipment and manpower for government facilities; the injustice and blame; the lack of proper judgment; the loss of loved ones; the desperation of a parent to do anything to keep his child alive, even if it meant to kill someone for it; the stupid sugarcoating and illusory acts of charity by politicians; the longing for change; everything! It smacks you in the face if you haven’t even realized it, but if you’ve known all along, it turns you unhappy, it did to me at least. Kapitan Sino is a great eye-opener and teaches us a valuable lesson. To sum up what I think of this book, it’s very good to read. The writing is very much passable and can be easily understood. Characters are well placed and relatable. It’s respectable and heeds out a very important message.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
