Noli Me Tangere (Touch Me Not) - 'Jose Rizal',  'Jose Rizal'
Reading and studying this novel by our National Hero is part of the curriculum in high school and sometimes also in college. Required or not, I actually liked this novel. It somewhat opened my eyes on the reality and gravity of the cruelty of the Spaniards and their cultural contributions during their colonial period here in the Philippines (333 years).
