Reviews - June 2013
Play: Peter and Alice
Apologies to the late Mr. Davies, but I completely disagree. For ninety minutes on May 20, 2013, I did live in a fantasy and reality was not all I had. Indeed, I was transported from the Noel Coward Theater and deposited into a 1930s London bookshop, where my heart was broken in an almost blissful manner.
Movie: Into Darkness
There's really only one word to summarize this movie, and that one word is clearly obvious: Khan.
But I'm getting ahead of myself, so let's start from the beginning.
Book: Throne of Glass
Watch out, Cinderella's the most dangerous assassin in the kingdom, and she's out to win against her competition no matter what the cost.
Throne of Glass is the first book of its series, and is a fantasy retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale. Well, at least, that was the premise a long time ago, when the draft was first placed in FictionPress as Queen of Glass. Now, after years of polishing and rewriting, Sarah J. Maas has turned the Cinderella tale into something much, much more.
