    Journo's Diary is fresh, fun and full of beans!

    For the new Weekend Star cadet reporter, Rich Hughes, daily life is a drain on his already limited supply of energy and interest. Feeling rather hopeless about a successful future, Rick approaches his new job with a less then stellar attitude and concentrates on being able to pay some bills. When a New Year's Eve fling goes awry, Rick curses his alcohol-hazed memory and hopes for the best. His life is turned upside down as he struggles with massive problems in his personal life and on the job. With a peculiar, bean-eating flatmate and his own cursed bad luck, Rick chronicles the ups and downs of his daily life in his personal journal.

    What can I say; I absolutely loved Journo's Diary!!! Written in a diary format, the story is easy to follow and fun to read. Rick Hughes is a single, rather indifferent, twenty-something guy with a dubious future. Why, you might ask? Well, life it seems, has dealt him a series of bad hands; he does not have luck with relationships, jobs or with much of anything. Drunken parties, low self esteem and a general lack of interest sets Rick up for recurring disappointment. He frequently gets himself into trouble and finds some interesting, if immature, ways to deal with the messes he makes. The storyline is full of comedic, but mostly believable moments...some of them had me laughing so hard that I had tears pouring out of my eyes and I could hardly catch my breath. I had to feel for Rick and I could not help myself from hoping that things would improve.

    Journo's Diary is truly imaginative, thoroughly enjoyable and makes everyday life seem very dull in comparison. With well developed, unique characters and a smart, creative style, Journo's Dairy is a wonderful read that will keeping you guessing and have you wondering what else could possibly go wrong. Bathroom humour, swearing and some sexuality may put some readers off though I quite enjoyed it as it lent more credibility to the plot and story development. In my opinion, the book cover doesn't do the story justice though it certainly catches the eye! Go ahead and pick up a copy of Journo's Diary; you will have a blast!

    Hilarious fast easy read, hard to put down,

    The book chronicals the life and misadventures of a cub reporter into it up to his eyeballs. He even realizes he has bittne off too much but muddles through his attempts of getting a story and to get lucky.He manages to do just that --get very unlucky at the hands of an elusive con artist. Meanwhile he muddles through his days a tolerating his sarcastic baked bean eating roomie. I found this book to be a hilarious read and very hard to put down. Kudos to Chris for taking us through Ricks life and making us see the lighter side of a nasty predicament.
