Reviews - What do our customers think?
Powerful read  Feb 26, 2007
In a world of books that are predictable and lack true depth, The Dead Don't Dance stands alone-far above the rest. Charles Martin's language is phenominal and the story flows so easily across the pages. Few books evoke such wrenching emotions as this. Dylan speaks with such raw honesty that the reader's heart cannot be left behind as he muddles through and often seems to suffocate in the midst of agony. And yet, the so true-to-life events that surround him on a daily basis lead him and the reader along the healing path that none could dismiss as simply "fiction". A wonderfully insightful and poignant read.
 
Where have you been all my life!??  Feb 25, 2007
I positively loved this book! A great story all the way through. There is just nothing bad to say about this writer. I liked it so well that I bought all that he had out which was 4 at this time. I'm anxiously waiting the next one! I generally get my books from the library but this one is one to share with all my friends and relatives and then keep.
 
Don't miss this one!  Feb 1, 2007
Superior Contemporary Inspirational Novel!

The Dead Don't Dance is one of those books that has beautiful prose, great plotting and heartfelt emotional scenes that aren't sappy and whiny like many inspirational novels. With a deft hand, Charles Martin has crafted a story that is heart-wrenching, funny, and memorable. He's a wonderful writer and deserves much more recognition that he's received from both inspirational readers and anyone who loves a well-written book with a great story. I look forward to reading more of Mr. Martin's books.
 
Wonderful story  Jan 23, 2007
Dylan Styles is very content with his life as a farmer, living with his wife Maggie in the house his grandfather built. When Maggie becomes pregnant, he is overjoyed and can't wait to be a father. Maggie goes into labor and Dylan's life is changed forever when his son is still-born and Maggie goes into a coma. Dylan hates going on without his wife, but is forced to go on living as his friend Amos gets him a job teaching writing at a local junior college to supplement his meager income from the farm. His class is made up of students who have failed writing once and don't seem to have much chance of passing his class either. His students range from cocky football players to sweet Amanda, the daughter of a local pastor. Each of them has something to teach Dylan about living, even when he doesn't want to learn any more than they do. Charles Martin does a wonderful job of creating quirky characters such as Bryce, the bagpipe-playing millionaire alcoholic who spends most of his time at a deserted drive-in movie. He also makes the South Carolina countryside very real to the reader, and evokes strong emotions when he describes the deep love between Dylan and Maggie. This book is a real winner!
 
What a debut!  Nov 13, 2006
The Dead Don't Dance was Charles Martin's debut novel and it clearly stamped Charles as an author to watch. Charles' books have become a "must read" for this reviewer!

The Dead Don't Dance weaves the heartrending tale of Dylan and Maggie Styles, a young couple seeking to make ends meet on their South Carolina farm, while eagerly anticipating the birth of their first child. Their joy is stripped away with the stillbirth of their son, the physical and emotional trauma leaving Maggie in a coma, and Dylan distraught and self-destructive. As the doctors hold out little hope for Maggie's recovery, Dylan stumbles blindly through his grief and commences a journey which will bring him to his knees before he discovers hope in the wilderness of his despair.

Charles Martin's prose is simply a joy to read. He has an uncanny ability with the written word, conjuring pictures in his readers' minds and expressing emotions with painful clarity. Written in the first person, Dylan's tender love for Maggie is transparent and touching, his grief palpable and confronting. The minor characters are well developed and add humour, substance and believability to a novel that is not to be missed.
