THE DEAD DON’T DANCE by Charles Martin February 2, 2015 – Posted in: Blog, Thoughts
What an incredible read, before I realised it I was on page 100 and not speed reading like I often do, but every word, because I didn’t want to miss out on the depth of his thoughts.
Every character he uses is original in thought, poignant in description and powerful in personality, at some you will laugh.
In this book the main character’s oh so hill billy friend, Bryce Kai Mac Gregor, probably the richest man in South Carolina, lives alone with his beer, his bagpipes, a drive-in movie theatre and a dog. He is an heir to a father who had left him millions, of which he is so totally oblivious.
While it is a story of loss that is unfathomable at times, and so real. The author focuses on life’s unquestionable ability of hope and finding one’s way back. It is an absorbing read, for fans of faith-based fiction. I can’t wait to read the sequel, Maggie.
