The ending? Just as shookening as the whole wild story:

#TheShooktBook indeed.

The thread got the attention of many people, of course, getting it more than a thousand likes.

Clara shared with that the main reason the thread started was to direct the attention towards Noli Me Tangere, in commemoration of the Rizal Act this August–the law which made Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo required readings in school.

“And also because it’s Buwan ng Wika,” she adds. “Noli was originally written in Spanish –and translating it to colloquial is a reminder that Filipino culture and language is alive, vibrant, and worth celebrating.”

Witty and relevant! Putting Noli Me Tangere in such a modern and pop culture perspective will really give the novel all the recognition it deserves.
