And Now the News

Hello once again from your Chronic Chronicler. I hope you are all doing well and that you are enjoying my reviews. I thought I’d just put this up to give you all a bit of notice of things that are coming up for the blog and see whether or not you’d like a voice in how this blog progresses.

Firstly, my next review will be about the phenomenally successful How to Train Your Dragon 2. I know pretty much everyone else has reviewed it, and in all probability my review will just echo their sentiments, but I think it’s worthy of a review and I hope you will enjoy it. The review will be out by the 31st at the latest so I hope you all keep a lookout for it.

The Greatest Game Ever Played – In A Really Boring Sport

517b589wJsLFor any and all golf fanatics that read my reviews, I guess this review is for you. Why do I say this? Well, if you have not noticed, in Britain there was this thing called The Open Championship where lots of highly paid men got to thwack a ball around a course while people applaud for their ability to hit a tiny ball into a hole many yards away and a Northern Irishman won. I think you may be able to tell I’m not keen on the sport, or at least the watching of the sport in lieu of actually playing it.

But golf seems to capture the imagination of some so I might as well get down to the spirit of things, reach for the TV remote and turn over from the golf to a film… about golf. Well there’s no time like the present – to the obligatory overview!

Ratchet and Clank – It’s Qwarktastic!

RatcehtandclankeuropeI apologise for being gone for a while, what with work, the World Cup and so on. You know all the usual excuses. But I’ve got a day off so I’m taking the time to write this review I’ve been meaning to do since January.

Thanks to The Otaku Judge’s wonderful suggestion, a blog you really should check out if you love all that is anime, I shall be reviewing all my Ratchet & Clank games. This may take a while but I hope you stick with me because Ratchet & Clank are worth it! OK, not let’s get to that ever present obligatory overview of the very first Ratchet & Clank game.

The Bell Jar – Finding the Point of Getting Up in the Morning

belljar_lSo I’m back again with another book review and this one is one quite dear to me. I bought it purely because I had heard about it vaguely, I knew it was Sylvia Plath’s only novel and that it was very well reviewed by one  friend and harshly criticised by another. It caught my interest and made me part with my money. And now I’m here telling you what I thought about it. Cue the obligatory overview!

Esther Greenwood is a young woman from the Boston suburbs who has won a summer internship with a magazine in New York which, rather than invigorating her makes disorients her, affecting her deeply. After a tumultuous time in New York, Esther returns home increasingly depressed. This depression is only further increased by her lack of identification outside of doing well academically.
