Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

A Strange, and Not Pleasant, Read: A Good Man by Vanessa Morgan

A Good Man by Vanessa Morgan


I'm not quite sure what I was expecting with this.  It sounded interesting enough:  a vampire who is a vegetarian.  Hmmm.  How's that going to work?

The problem is, I didn't really find out.  The screenplay didn't really focus on the vegetarianism aspect of the main character.  Except he threw up every time he drank someone's blood.  While I normally read novels and knew there wouldn't be a lot of explanation involved, some type of dialogue would have been nice for the reader, or viewer, to know why he was so grossed out by his nature.  The main crux of the play really seemed to be the main character's betrayal of his best friends.  If the writer had stuck to that, it would have been a much better read.

If this were to be performed as an actual play, don't bother taking your coat off.  It couldn't last more than 15 minutes.  A strange, and not pleasant, read
