Book Review: Where the Crawdads Sing
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When I finished reading Where the Crawdads Sing last week, and I immediately missed the story’s protagonist, Kya.
Beautifully, succinctly penned book. Delia Owens made me fall in love with the North Carolina marsh and wildlife. I love how she weaved her scientific knowledge of environment, creatures-especially birds, and flora into the story in such a way that it breathed life into it.
The marsh and wildlife became part of Kya. It was her home and truly took on its own role throughout the story. I grew fond of the other characters too. Jumpin had my heart.
Kept wishing for Kya to move in and live with Jumpin and Mabel. Though I accept that Delia Owens could not write this compelling story with the outcome of her solitude.
I highly recommend this book! I’d let you borrow mine, but I’ve already loaned my copy. Where the Crawdads Sing is a GREAT read!
If you prefer audio, I can attest that the unabridged audio version of Where the Crawdads Sing is excellent!
