    1. Look. Listen. I have read heaps of books in Philippine Literature, and by far, this is indubitably the best 'perfect book' I've ever read. After reading this delicate masterpiece, I regained a soft hum of pride for Philippine Literature, an electrifying surge of valiance, a respite from all the mediocre books I've numbly read and a gob of sympathy for the history of my country.It was brilliant--everything was slotted perfectly. Sure, it was a cliche novel of World War II in the Philippines but t [...]


    2. this book is set on the world war 2 years in my hometown so i must read it the author is kinda overly detailing his descriptions.ch a long novel and hard to readbut is historically significant.


    3. I missed this book! it's been 16 years since I last read it. And it is good to have a flashback of our history. heart-felt book. =)


    4. a surprising read. i never expected it. it was assigned reading but it tugged my heart as i went along the pages. in the end, i couldn'nt put it down and read it in one sitting.


    5. This beautiful novel of fine storyline, crafted in such a way that elicits mixed and profound feelings while one could almost always without a hitch relate to the utmost struggles of every Filipino during the tragic Japanese occupation of the Philippines, World War II. I got stirred up to tears. Read on and you'll know what I mean!


    6. This is one of the best books I have read when I was studying. It led me to appreciate and love the Filipiniana section of the library and gave me a sense of pride on our Philippine lit.Until now, I can feel the simplicity of life, the tragedy of war and the hope in love.


    7. A BOOK REPORT ON “WITHOUT SEEING THE DAWN”by Stevan JavellanaWithout Seeing the Dawn is a story of a young man and his village. It is the story of the simple life of the people close to the soil in a certain “barrio” in the Panay Island where one can see the sweats of the farmers and their sons, diligently tilling the land with their carabaos, a place where one can hear the laughters of the children, the songs of serenades by the young men, and a place where one can feel the love and con [...]



    8. This was a requirement at school. I'll be honest-- I really thought at first that I would find this slow and not interesting. But I was SO wrong! As time went by (as well as the days counting towards the deadline), the action built up and immediately took my attention. I really felt the emotions coming from this novel. The fear and danger you face during the tragic times of war. The hardships of life and the pain of losing the people you love. The writing style is much too descriptive for me, bu [...]


    9. Powerful novel first published in 1947 about life in a Visayan village -- where there is turmoil (because of love affairs, illness, bandits and family feuds) even before the Japanese invasion. But author Stevan Javellara's depiction of the brutal occupation of the Philippines is one of the most frightening portrayals of WWII in the Pacific that I have ever read. We follow it through the eyes of Carding as he grows from a young swain tending his caribou and wooing his sweetheart, to a war-hardene [...]


    10. This was a requirement way back in college which started quite slow and ended with a bang.It tells a story of Carding, an Ilonggo, his ups and downs, and his village's fall amongst Japanese soldiers during WWII.Moving Amazing
