Inhaltsangabe

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.

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!

Great book, amazed by it, just very good.

Loved it, the story, the performance, loved it all. Surprised me, and I'm very glad I gave it a chance. If you are looking for a book that hooks you in and doesn't let go until the end, this is it.
