    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING PHENOMENON—NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE!
    More than 15 million copies sold worldwide
    A Reese’s Book Club Pick
    A Business Insider Defining Book of the Decade

    “I can't even express how much I love this book! I didn't want this story to end!”—Reese Witherspoon

    “Painfully beautiful.”—The New York Times Book Review

    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.

    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.

    ©2018 Delia Owens (P)2018 Penguin Audio

    Commentaires

    "Narrator Cassandra Campbell serves up a bushel of Carolina accents in this debut novel by nature writer Delia Owens. Campbell's accents give the mix of classes and regions in the story the same realistic detail Owens provides for the marsh.... Prepare to be enchanted and haunted." (AudioFile)

    "A lush debut; Owens delivers her mystery wrapped in gorgeous, lyrical prose." (Alexandra Fuller, author of Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight)  

    “A painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative and a celebration of nature.... Owens here surveys the desolate marshlands of the North Carolina coast through the eyes of an abandoned child. And in her isolation that child makes us open our own eyes to the secret wonders - and dangers - of her private world.” (The New York Times Book Review)

    “Steeped in the rhythms and shadows of the coastal marshes of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, this fierce and hauntingly beautiful novel centers on.... Kya’s heartbreaking story of learning to trust human connections, intertwine[d] with a gripping murder mystery, revealing savage truths. An astonishing debut.” (People)

    Excellent!

    Excellent. Probably one of the best books I ever read! I highly recommend it. A completely different style, which deserves lots of awards. Good idea for a gift too, everyone will like it! Just enjoy it, it is a great "page turner" - but there is also a lot to think about if you want to, about nature, society and many, many other engrossing themes. Surprising from the first to the last page! Well done also to the great performance by Cassandra Campbell.

    Transporting, touching, beautiful

    The best book I’ve listened to for a long time. I just couldn’t stop listening and I’m heading to my local bookstore to buy the real book too.

    Une belle réussite

    Le talent de la narratrice met merveilleusement en valeur ce très beau roman. Hymne à la nature à travers un personnage très attachant.

    Excellent

    I originally started reading the book on my Kindle but gave up after a few pages. I couldn't understand why everyone was praising it. Then it came up in my Audible suggestions and I thought I'd give it another go. The performance was excellent and i really got into it. It is original, poetic and has unexpected twists. I highly recommend it.

    Sing with the marshgirl

    Delia Owens describes the marsh so well and this story of the marsh girl is so realistic you may think it's a true story. All characters are real, living people you may end breathing with them.

    Don't listen to the negative reviews.

    First off, I'm a 29 year old low key nerdy male who watches NBA, NFL, shoots guns, plays basketball, races turbo cars and crotch rockets and loves zombie stuff and horror.

    This is the first book like this I have read since high school. I hate anything romance, this is a subtle romance book.

    All the reviews were what led me to this and they did not disappoint. Anyone who has anything negative to say is probably too close minded to accept the sheer brilliance and beauty of this book. The narrator and her accents add so much to the story.

    The way the author depicts the south makes you feel like you had grown up there and everything is spot on. I guess I could see why someone wouldn't particularly love this but I would just assume they weren't intellectual or philosophical enough to appreciate it, Anyone who likes to step outside their comfort zone and see things from another perspective will like this.

    Wonderful novel

    First a few words on narration. Cassandra Campbell has such a great range as a narrator going from the Jana DeLeon's Miss Fortune comedic novels to to this novel. She is simply terrific. I'm very late getting to WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING. It is a wonderful novel in every way. I'm fascinated by the negative reviews which dominate the top reviews here at Audible. Pay no attention to those because they are unreasonable and unfair. The average of over 150,000 ratings is 4.8 stars which is richly deserved. Kya (swamp girl) is as compelling a protagonist as any in fiction. The novel covers her life from age 6 to her death six decades later

    If you like far-fetched YA novels this is for you.

    If you can be swept away by a story where a girl grows up to be ravishingly beautiful despite living alone in a swamp since the age of 8 with no nutrition and no health care, and so brilliant that she writes multiple text books that revolutionize the study of ornithology despite never having any kind of formal education, then this is the book for you. Call me a literary snob, but I couldn't stop rolling my eyes and thinking, "Really...really??" The most interesting and believable character in this sappy mess is the swamp itself. No amount of clever narration could have saved this ridiculous story...

    Extremely boring

    So confused how people think this is anything but boring? I read it because it has been on the best seller list for a while and it was painful to get to the end. I was waiting for it to pick up or there to be a shocking twist but there was none of that. Do not wait waste 12 hours and 12 minutes on a bleh story.

    I KNEW from the title that this book wasn't for me

    ...but I wasted a credit on it anyway because it was a choice for Reese Witherspoon's book club and the preponderance of 5-star ratings, which I just don't understand. The premise strains belief; Kya's family abandons her as a child - her father, mother, older sisters and older brother leave her to her own devices in a decrepit shack in the marsh. But somehow, without help, she manages. Her relationship with Chase also doesn't ring true, but that's a necessary part of the story. The writing is pat and cliched.
    The narration of dialog was awful - very exaggerated and I would say lower class speech, even for the judge and lawyers, who would have been educated and speak with a more scholarly dialect, but the narrator doesn't seem to know the difference. She must not be from these parts or she would know better. Her delivery of the narrative parts of the book was fine and unaccented. Kya's voice never develops any grown-up confidence, even after she becomes a mostly self-educated author of scientific books and and an authority on marsh wildlife; it remains shy and child-like.

    So. Bad.

    I can’t even. This book is incredibly boring, made even more so by the excruciatingly slow narration and the idiotic voice of the main character. I am listening to it on 2x speed and I can’t even finish it. Credits are too valuable to spend on this book. Returning!

    Not sure how this book has such high ratings

    I was so bored listening to this book to the point of almost not finishing it. I also had a very hard time with the narrator's voices she chose for the characters. I found it very distracting and really couldn't stand Kya's voice.

    There was way too much dialogue, slow moving storyline, uninteresting characters, and anticlimactic twist at the end. I know I'm in the minority here, but I just couldn't get into it.

    Ridiculous

    I’ve rarely disliked a book more. The plot defies my best efforts at suspending my disbelief. The characters are so inconsistent, and there is this Disney-like view of nature and the innocent child on her own. The depiction of Jumpin’ was beyond ridiculous. I cannot understand the hype around this book.

    Im sorry I wasted a credit on this book

    The narrator made this story so hard to listen to. In trying to make the characters sound ignorant, she made them sound like they all had speech impediments. She was slow and drawn out. Her performance really ruined the story for me.

    Mehr davon, bitte!!!!

    Dieser Roman ist einfach nur großartig und ich kann nur hoffen, dass die deutsche Übersetzung genauso wunderbar geschrieben ist, wie das amerikanische Original. Beim Hörbuch hat mich ein bisschen die Stimme der Protagonisten geärgert. Die Sprecherin gibt jedem Charakter im Buch eine eigene Stimme. Die der Protagonisten wirkte auf mich wie ein naives Mädchen, was der Protagonistin meiner Meinung nach nicht gerecht wird. Sehr gut hat mir der Südstaaten-Slang gefallen; das amerikanische Hörbuch ist nicht für Anfänger.

    4 1/2 Sterne

    Ich habe das Buch gerade zu Ende gehört und kann nicht leugnen dass es einen ziemlichen Nachhall hat.
    Die Geschichte ist wunderbar geschrieben, die Charaktere sind sehr gut gezeichnet und es ist sehr spannend.
    Warum dann 4 1/2 Sterne? Weil ich das Buch nicht nochmal hören oder lesen würde. Irgendwie hat mich die Geschichte, die Erzählweise und auch die Art wie sie gelesen wurde niedergeschlagen.

    I really enjoyed hearing it!

    I needed some time to but towards the end I could not stop hearing it. I loved the wild, strong and unique female main character. The love story is beautiful, but no too plain. The story touches upon some crucial social issues (prejudices, racism, superficiality etc.).
    The speaker did a good job interpreting the characters.
    I'd most definitely recommend it!

    A wonderful and touching book!

    Excellenty written, it was really hard to put down.

    The reader, while not excelling with male voices, compensates with her dreamy and misty voice that is perfect for this setting, and does such a (mighty) fine job at conveying emotion, that has brought me to tears several times throughout the book...

    Highly recommended!

    Ich habe jede Minute geliebt! Es war eine fantastische Reise in die Sumpflandschaft in North Carolina, wo mich Kya und die wundervolle Beschreibung der Natur komplett in ihren Bann gezogen hat.
