El Filibusterismo - Penguin Classics

Picking up the story of Noli Me Tangere thirteen years later, El Filibusterismo presents a gripping tale of obsession and revenge. Gone are the Moli's themes of innocent love, its hero, Ibarra, a man of great integrity and vision, replaced by the mysterious jeweler Simoun and a venal–and reprehensible–cast of characters. The result of Rizal's growth as a writer and influenced by his exposure to international events, El Filibusterismo is a riveting and suspenseful account of Filipino resistance to colonial rule that still resonates today.
