Touch Me Not/The Untouchables

Postby Aurelia Combeferre » Sun Feb 21, 2010 3:26 pm

Also known as Noli Me Tangere by Jose Rizal.

Some say that this novel is inspired by Les Misérables. Apart from there being a few bourgeoisie-type characters, a suffering mother, more than one orphaned son, a beautiful woman who is loved by an idealistic young man, and a revolutionary figure (of a different, more proletarian background though), I am not so sure how true this is. And I've studied that novel since my high school days.

Has anyone read this book too? Care to share any thoughts?

Not yet but it sounds interesting, especially drama around the idealized heroine Maria Clara and villainous young Father Salvi...
