This, again, is a short from a different angle. Written as a screenplay I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about it. I was nervous but I think my drama club script reading kicked in and the whole thing was perfect and played beautifully in my mind. Like a script to an episode of emotional struggles from various people in different situations. I found myself reading the parts and acting like the characters. Trying to put myself there emotionally and it was amazing! Kind of sparked a fire in me that hadn't been there for a long time.
The story itself is very beautiful and I love how Zack includes a worldly conflict in almost all his reads. One that people may not feel comfortable talking about but when you read his stories you find yourself wanting to and realizing that these problems exist in society. Central Park Song is not an exception to this.
Touching and inspirational!

Book Flirts by Jessi
Zack Love has such an amazing way of putting words down on paper and creating a story and image in your mind. His intelligent way of writing allow the scenes to flow, immersing you in a world of skyscrapers and run down buildings, taking you right along with the characters on their journey.
I clearly pictured Rodney and his adventures....I sensed his despair when he felt helpless and heartbroken, as well as his happiness when he did good for others. I also saw Melinda and her sense of justice. The way she struggled with what her heart told her to do and what society expected from her. All these scenes were clearly expressed and I could picture them like images on a television screen.
The relationship between the characters, especially Rodney and Melinda, prove that regardless of where or how you live, love can be found anywhere. As stated in the story, "When you look for beauty, you usually end up finding it." This is a story of two people finding each other by chance and helping one another on their path to self discovery.
Don't let the idea of a different format deter you from picking up a copy. You will not regret reading this story.
This is a screenplay and the first I have ever read. It was a little different reading but still interesting and entertaining. As I read I was able to picture in my head a movie screen showing what was happening.
I thought the story would be lost with all the other information in the screenplay (i.e. where people are, how they are looking, age information, etc) but it wasn't. I was able to put myself there at every scene. I had emotions just like with a normal book. I wanted to yell, smack some people in the head and cry. I was amazed that I could enjoy this type of read.
Rodney and Melinda are each amazing people but from two different backgrounds. A chance encounter brings about feelings Melinda didn't expect. However, she is concerned about the background issues and as a result loses out on love.....however, sometimes time shows the heart what really matters. It isn't about race, color, religion, money or looks...it's about the soul reaching out to another soul.
Read this screenplay. Give it a shot. As you read put yourself in a theatre and watching the big screen. See these words come to life.
One of my favorite quotes (among many) from Central Park Song: "I think the love completes the soul. Just like knowledge completes the mind"
It is a chance encounter that brings the young, brilliant, but homeless Rodney and the beautiful Melinda -- a successful lawyer from an affluent family -- together.
Albeit coming from entirely different backgrounds, the two form an immediate connection and inadvertently fall in love.
But, as Shakespeare would say, "The course of true love never did run smooth". The protagonists are forced to confront and overcome their innermost fears, face social antagonism and stand up for their love before being rewarded with their "happily ever after" at the end of the script.
Following the principles of storytelling, the screenplay is vibrant, deeply romantic and engaging. The pace is brisk, the dialogue witty and memorable, the characters relatable, compelling, driven by passion and ambition. In addition, there are some superb supporting characters.
"When ideals are but rotting phantoms of youth, and love is
an empty echo of solitary illusion, and every breath lingers
into a heavy, gray pain, then eternal sleep is the last sweet
mercy I ask for." -- Rodney
