RandyEhrlerNaperville, Il4 Stars Out Of 5Wally Lamb plus FaithApril 24, 2012RandyEhrlerNaperville, IlIf you have read and enjoyed books by Wally Lamb, you will love The Dead Don't Dance. It reminded me very much of both I Know This Much is True and The Hour I First Believed. It follows Dylan Stiles, the main character, as his life spirals as a result of tragedy and his struggle to understand why bad things happen to good people. Most importantly, he does this through the lens of faith in God, without which we are all lost. Excellent read.

Pamela5 Stars Out Of 5September 14, 2005PamelaBooks are air to me - I can't go a day without breathing one. I bought this book as an afterthought and found a favorite author the moment I began reading it last night. I read all night -- laughing and crying -- sure it was written about my husband and me in the beginning. This afternoon I began reading it to my husband and he (still learning the joy of reading) insisted I finish reading it to him tonight. What a beautiful, heart gripping novel. It lifted us up, beat us up, broke us, renewed us ... and we still have a few chapters left. Thank you for the sweet pain of the story and the truth of the characters. They are people I know and love whose story I wanted told. This book is a joy to read.
