'The Diary' Entices People to Open It and Face Their...
Taking the reader into a reality removed from their own, the story takes place on desecrated land, in an undisclosed location somewhere in London at the turn of the millennium. Predominately, The Diary centers on good versus evil, dealing with the subconscious, showing that dreams are as real as ones mind allows them to be, except that they can become deadly.
Danny Russell, the present victim of The Diary, is the 19-year-old great-great-grandson of a previous victim. Due to the curious nature of his friend Peter, he is forced to endure his deepest fears over a 12-month period. He needs to find the Diary and denounce its existence in order to survive saving his future daughter Rosina along the way. As the months continue to pass, the danger element grows culminating in an explosive and emotional ending.
Although being a fictional story, the plots and subplots within the adventure deal with realism, subjects many people consider taboo because they walk the boards of life blindfolded instead of opening their eyes to what lives around them on a daily basis, Beer states. I do not shy away from images that society accepts yet denies within the same sentence.
