PLOT

My brother, my executioner is a controversial story representing the battle of a wealthy character with the many challenges in his life, even when it is against his own brother. the story deals with the 2 half brothers - Luis Asperri and Victor. Luis is the biological, but illegitimate son of Don Vicente Asperri, the wealthiest landowner in there. at a young age, Luis was taken by his father from his poor mother and his half-brother Vic (a nickname for Victor), who both lived in Sipnget, Rosales, Pangasinan. His father gave him all he needs. Luis became a writer and editor of a left-wing magazine. he returned to rosales when he found out that his father was sick. he came home together with trining, his female cousin, who studies in the convent. In order for the Asperris to preserve their wealth, Luis married trining. after sometime, she got pregnant. but in manila, Luis also had an affair with his manager's daughter - ester - which is also trining's best friend. but because they quarreled one night, ester disappeared and was found out to be dead. he then found out from his mother that his half-brother Victor became the commander of Hukbalahap (hukbong bayan laban sa mga hapon) which is against rich people and feudal landowners. Thus, the brothers had different personalities, beliefs, views and status in life. they meet again as both friends and foes. these are their misunderstandings as brothers. Luis considers himself liberal. he is against the goals of his brother which is to put down his status as a wealthy landowner for the benefit of the poor.

at the end of the story, vic warned them about the huks. he told him to leave the place. but they didnt listen. Trining got shot and died. Luis then revenged and fought for his status and for the death of his wife.

This story is a must read for everyone for it elaborates on the political structures and some aspects of the Philippine history. it is also somewhat similar to Jose Rizal's noli me tangere and el filibusterismo. reading it really requires full attention for them to be able to grasp the meaning of the story. although the theme tackles more on political life of the rural people, readers can still be caught by romance in some chapters, particularly to Luis, and his affection for 2 women, trining and ester.
