Reviews about How Sweet The Mango, No?: The Journey of a Hispanic Amerasian (5):

This book is very well-written. There was never a lull. It was riveting. I wanted to know what happened next: to his family, the vast property they owned and more importantly, how they survived the hand of fate. I have known Bube and some of his siblings during my college days. I have visited some of the places depicted in this book, including his family's home. Not only does he give us a first-hand slice of history during the Marcos era and thereafter but he also gives us a glimpse of a life filled with adventure in some small corner of the world. His story could be someone else's as well, including his triumphs and his struggles and eventually his journey to a brand new life. God always provides. Every bit of his adventure was in preparation for the bigger things in life. Clearly, he was being shown the way. I highly recommend this to anyone who has ever lived in the Philippines, either by birth, by marriage or by happenstance.

I heard about the book from my cousin Charlie. Upon his recommendation, I ordered it online from Amazon. It was compelling reading right from the start...and I just could not put it down either. Intrique, humour, love, sadness, honour, courage, loyalty, patriotism...and more are depicted in this marvelous story. I sincerely hope that Bube will continue to write as he is one heck of a story teller!

Mikey, I just finished reading Bube’s book. It’s beautifully written and with so much heart and soul! I didn’t know all the challenges your family went through for his ancestral properties. But I agree that it was good for you to finally migrate and settle and retire in the US. He should continue to write, even fiction! He’s a great story teller. He would have aced our creative writing class in St. Scho! Beautiful imagery and use of the language!

I have just finished the book and enjoyed it ... couldn't put it down.
As someone who once lived in the Philippines I was pleasantly reminded of my birth country and felt quite "nostalgic". My parents were born there of Spanish parents and my mom was familiar with Bubes extended family (Aboitiz) as she had grown up in Cebu.
I enjoyed his adventures growing up with a very special grandfather and his adventures as a young lad, I felt joy hearing about his wife Mikey (we were once very close friends until I left Manila), and was saddened to hear about his struggles with the changing face of the country- living during the difficult late Marcos era (martial law). His losses- grandfathers land; friends and his new beginning.
Again Bube--- good job!
Ferne
Waste of time. I will never get these hours back.
