    "Worthy Writing...."

    Charles Martin is a a gifted writer, however his stories are sometimes hard to take, much like life, so if you listen to books to escape the difficulties of life, well, be aware. My favorite so far is Chasing Fireflies. This is a really good read but it makes you look at raw pain. I love the interaction between these true friends. It makes you aware of the impact we have on one another. Charles Martin's books feed us in a way I cannot define. It is like a light he shelters and his stories stir that in me.

    Story
    "How good it feels to read a really good book."

    This story held me every minute right with the authors words and the very excellent narration. I liked the different kinds of love and caring that small community had
    I didn't dislike any part of the story except the coon hunt, which was a little too real and the thought of snuggling pink... Yuck. But I will search out every book Charles Martin has written because" his words touch my soul.

    "Robin L Warren"

    This is one of my favorite books by Charles Martin. I've listened to it probably 5 times. The writing is excellent, the story compelling, and the humor is so enjoyable. It has inspired me as a writer.

    Story
    "Cant get enough Charles Martin"
    If you could sum up The Dead Don't Dance in three words, what would they be?

    Feels so good!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dead Don't Dance?

    I think mentioning what is the most memorable moment to someone reading this review would ruin the story. Each person had to experience it for themselves.


    What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The emotion that is brought to life by the reader makes the story all the more compelling.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me cry with compassion for the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must listen book.
