Description

A number one New York Times best seller and a Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine book club pick.

For years, rumors of the 'Marsh Girl' have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life - until the unthinkable happens. 

Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Celeste Ng, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.

Great story, annoying narrative

Really heart warming story, that kept me hooked, but the voices the narrator's put on were really grating

Beautiful story but a bit tiresome towards the end

The descriptions of nature and wildlife and the experience of social isolation is wonderful but towards the end I found the character less believable. What I mean is that it's hard to believe ANYBODY could be like her in real life. And the lack of change or the absence of development on her part gets monotonous repetitive and annoying.

Beautifully written and narrated story

I’m so sad to finish this book as it really transported me to a different place. Cassandra Campbell’s voice is perfect for this story with her Southern inflections and perfect switches between characters. I highly recommend this book!

A truly remarkable story

Seldom can I give a book 5 stars. This seems underrated for Where the Crawdads Sing. I couldn't put it down and felt every emotion conveyed by the narrator Cassandra Campbell (my favorite woman narrator). She brought the characters to life. The author, Delia Owens, kept me captivated from start to finish and I was very sad to finish such a brilliantly written book.
I hope to be able to read more from the same author on Audible.

Heartbreakingly good

An amazing story about perseverance in the face of impossibly sad circumstances. The loneliness is palpable. So well written. This will stay with me for a long, long time.

Good for dialect - nice life story

I have bought this book in order to improve my abilities to understand spoken English as well as to work on my fluency. The book covers the life story of a girl growing up in the marsh of North Carolina. It is a kind of a biography including a courtroom drama, love story, description of wildlife and land. Often, direct speech is being read in dialect, although I could not say how accurate it is. Well, I enjoyed it.

Beautiful!

The author takes us to the deep South, to places only someone who knows the soul of the land can. From start to finish, the book is one riveting listen,, touching and intriguing, the language as beautiful as the story! The reader is to be commended for her extremely good portrayal of characters. I loved it!
