After 5 minutes on my seat yester noon, I knew I wouldn't be able to make a review about the movie. Instead of one being woven in my head, I had recollections of what it was like knowing the story a year ago. The same emotions were coming back as if I was holding the book in my hands while getting inside the head of the person whose name reminds me of the fraternité.
Perhaps it was the reason I had second thoughts about reading the novel again. I've read the first book twice. Somewhere in my head, kept hidden by my subconscious, was the knowledge that doing so will trigger sentiments that will turn on my coping mechanism. I am not being emo here for I am definitely not one.
Emotional emotions are something I hardly relate to. Another reason why I am so fond of the saga. "Empathy is a gift," Chin Chin Gutierrez said in an interview, but she didn't mention that it comes with a price. And it's not something you can delay to pay.
When I read the book, I was quick to understand the human, the leech, and the shape-shifter. Besides the entertainment brought by fiction, I was able to understand some things and see some situations better and clearer than before. I was relieved.
