Books have already been a part of life, or for some, it is their life. Since almost everyone stays at home because of the pandemic that the world is experiencing, many people search for the perfect book to read. The one book that comes in a package is a great story, perfect plot twist, loveable characters, and a unique writing style. We look for that next book that will take us to a whole new world, make us believe in love, and drive our hearts to beat—the kind of book that will bring us to light and hope amid

the chaos.

There are a bunch of good books out there, but there are just a few great books. If you are searching for the best book to read while on quarantine, you must start reading Calum Cumming's Beat.

Usually, screenplays are written and created for theater performances. Sometimes, when we watch theater, we think to ourselves, if there is any chance that we will be able to read the script and screenplay of that theater act. And this what makes Beat an extraordinary book. It is not just a book; it is a screenplay.








According to Calum Cumming, Beat is a screenplay about the love between a young married couple, Louise Lisa, an American, and Jim, a Scotsman. The story is set at Christmas Time on the West Coast of America. It traces existential journeys from the Old World in Scotland as far as Mexico.











The central characters in this play have fallen in love with the Beat Counter Culture Generation's mythology and lifestyle, a literary movement started by a group of authors whose work explored and influenced American culture and politics in the post-war era. The bulk of their work was published and popularized throughout the 1950s.



The screenplay's mobility is paired with the home's needed stability, explored by an American writer like Saul Bellow. The play examines the need for some spiritual belief, social security, and materialism.

The beatnik backdrop of the piece is explored via mental and physical health. A strong motif for this is examined with the nobility and stigma attached to the USA's pre-ordained natural inheritance, the Native American.

As you turn each page of this book, you will surely fall in love not only with the characters but with the book itself. You will be able to feel all sorts of emotions. In the end, the only thing that you will feel is amazement. You will think to yourself how great of a writer Calum Cumming is because of this screenplay.

Just by reading his book, somehow, you will be able to get to know the author. It is like sharing his heart with his readers, revealing himself as a man of greatness with creative imagination and a beautiful soul.

So, what are you waiting for? Make your heart beat again with Cumming's Beat and feel again – beating the tediousness brought by the pandemic.
