Loved DEXTER and AMERICAN PSYCHO? Then you'll love A GOOD MAN.

A Good Man is a screenplay about Louis Caron, an elderly vegetarian Vampire and is currently in preproduction with Radowski Films. From the first page I was amazed at how easily I could vision each scene and had such a strong connection to Louis, even with there is less description that a typical book. I loved this screen play from the start, it was humorous throughout yet was deadly serious when

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

After checking out the cover and the synopsis, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. While I’m not a frequent play reader, I do enjoy a good story in any format.

This play did not disappoint.

It took me a little bit to get used to reading a play when I’m so used to reading descriptive novels, but once my imagination laid the scene out before me, I was hooked. The story is captivating, thought provoking, and it makes you wonder if we r

Let's start with saying that I have never red a screen play before other than the classics. Really that means that I have read plays but not anything designed for tv production. It was a little weird to read at first because I am so used to reading novels. That being said, I can definitely see this as a tv series. I don;t know if it has enough content to be a movie, but the events in Louis's life could definitely be spread into a series. It needs a lot more fleshing out though if that is the cas ...more

I received a copy of A Good Man in exchange for a review and as soon as I read the synopsis for this story I couldn't wait to start reading it.

I must admit it took a bit of getting used to reading it in screenplay format but once I got the hang of it I could easily visualise each scene and the people in it and managed to get into the flow of the story.

A Good Man is definitely a thought provoking read as the reader is challenged to either like or loathe Louis and the things he does. Even though L

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

I wasn't really driven to read this script. For one the formatting was all wrong for me each line being far too short. This though says nothing about the actual story. Sadly the author use of the main character vomiting every time he fed on humans was a problem for me. Yes I get that this was supposed to show the revulsion Louis feels for this side of his being. I just feel that this could be done in a different way. Maybe through his vampire help group which we are introduced to briefly. The po ...more

I received an advanced copy of A Good Man by Vanessa Morgan and from the very first page I was transformed into the theatre watching the play unfold.

I found the screenplay to be very captivating as Vanessa brings to life all the characters. And with just enough mundane every day movements of mortals to keep you interested, Vanessa then throws in the violence and suggested violence which keeps you hooked waiting to see what will happen next.
