  • An absorbing story

    Beginning in 1952, "Where the Crawdads Sing" tells the story of Catherine Danielle Clark, known as "Kya" or the "Marsh Girl". Living in poverty with her family in the marshes of rural North Carolina, Kya is 6 years old when the story begins. Her father was abusive, and as a result her mother and her siblings left their lives behind. Several years later, when her father deserts her, Kya is left to fend for herself. With no formal education, Kya scrounges to support herself, isolated from others and with few personal relationships. She develops friendships with two local boys, Tate (who taught her to read) and Chase. In 1969, when Kya is 23 years old, Chase is found dead, and Kya is accused of killing him. Beautifully written, "Where the Crawdads Sing" is a story of loneliness, strength, and endurance which will stay with the reader for a long time. A great read!

  • Excellent

    This book touches your soul deeply. As a woman who grew from a shy lonely girl I could truly relate to Kya’s aching outsider loneliness. When one person reaches out for connection it’s remarkable what can happen. If that person ends up hurting you, you’re heart hardens a little each time. Life reminds you to focus on the good and surround yourself with people who are true.

  • Where The Crawdads Sing

    Outstanding and deserving of more than 5 stars. Such a rich, addictive story with the perfect amount of detail and an ending that doesn't leave you hanging. The Marsh Girl is my favourite character I've read so far this year. If you haven't read it already, add this to your to-read list immediately.

  • where the crawdads sing

    This book was recommended by a friend. Didn't think I would like it. I was so wrong. Probably one of the best books I have ever read! Powerful, thought provoking,emotional.

  • Unlikely

    A truly improbable plot. The writing is fine and so is the characterization, but an enormous amount of "suspension of disbelief" is needed when you read this novel.
