    Considered one of the most important works in Filipino literature, Cave and Shadows is a mystery thriller that weaves together a host of contrasting elements good evil, Catholic pagan, colonial native, male female, etc around the story of the mysterious death of Nenita Coogan Nenita is already dead when the novel begins very much like Laura Palmer and I can t help wondering if Mark Frost and David Lynch didn t use this book when creating Twin Peaks, including some its high strangeness but that d [...]

    At first, I thought this is a horror novel Because of a dead girl who randomly show herself.This is about unearthing the inexplicable death of Nenita Coogan I ve a suspect in my mind, but honestly, I blamed the wrong one.

    I really really loved it It started quite slow for me, it did not connect instantly However, the book got into the good, juicy part It was a really good political and religious mystery novel You think you ll know what will happen next but everything turned out differently Nick Joaquin is always one step ahead of you It also has a bit of history which make it interesting It really got me interested in Filipino paganism not in converting but in knowing about it If you re not a conservative Chris [...]

    Strange, surreal, and idiosyncratic dark humor at the expense of zealous nationalism and Filipino nativism The characters motivations are just too ridiculous, one is inclined to believe Joaquin is pulling a long, elaborate joke a joke that most people are sure to react to with the utmost and unwelcome reverence and solemnity.

    A satisfying blend of history and detective story, Cave and Shadows investigates the death of a young woman found in a cave There was no sign of foul play She was found naked, and as if sleeping There s an inner cave within cave, secret passages, neo paganism, ritual sacrifices, cults and activists, converts and sinners I think it has a lot to offer the readers of mystery and mysticism Full review at the following link booktrek 2011 01

    I ve only read Joaquin s short stories and have gotten a feel for how he melds Philippines folklore with history This novel explores both, surprisingly within a political and religious whodunit Full review on my blog Guiltless Reading First read Dec 2014 Reread March 2015.
