Meet the Author

Martin and Weinke debuted with 2008’s “the dominant hand,” which The Tulsa World predicted to be the “cult classic of our generation.”


Despite rumors that the team were splitting up after only one book, the pair have committed to three books in three years starting with 2010’s “Edward and the Island.”


The dark comedy set in heaven follows the struggles of a group of children trying to adapt to an Island created as an experiment for a new universe.

    I just didn't get it...

    i'm not sure if I liked the book or not. I was intrigued and couldn't wait for the twist at the end that would glorify God and his creation and make some moral sense of the island...but it never came. I know it is fiction, but I didn't appreciate how God was blasphemed (in my opinion) in this story. For some reason, I thought that there would be a reason why Martin had chosen to portray God the way he did, maybe to teach us something about the relationship with our creator, but if he did...i missed it completely. The only other Charles Martin that I have read is "When Crickets Cry", and I loved it. Wish I could say that I loved this one.
