I was sure I would like this bookand actually finished it I grew irritated with each page by the last half I grew up in coastal North Carolina and was born in the 40s so would be the same age as the main characters It was clear that the author did not do her research about the area and about what would be plausible at the time of the story When she mentioned real towns she should have known Asheville would not be the destination city from the coast especially in the 60s Ma s old cardboard suitcase that had been in the closet in the marsh for 19 years would be covered in mildew Fireflies would have been called lightening bugs No boy in a small town in NC would have been named either Tate or Chase in 40s recent popular names I could go on and on The inconsistencies in the dialect was grating and many parts of the story were just not believable to me I am amazed that so many people loved the book and the poetry

FREE DOWNLOAD Where the Crawdads Sing Delia Owens ´ 8 READ READ ✓ Where the Crawdads Sing St 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 becom. I know Oh boy there are a lot of readers who will COMPLETELY disagree with this rating Many of my friends loved this book Let s begin with what I liked about this novel the main character s connection to nature and the scientific facts presented throughout the storyNow for the novel s downfallsSPOILER ALERTThis story is just too improbable From Kya raising herself beginning at a very young age to EVERYONE leaving her to her killing someone it was all too much for me Kya never got sick or badly injured needed a doctor dentist This strong character goes to school for one day and is bullied away She had a wonderful relationship with her brother Jody who then leaves her and never contacts her again for years He left her to live in a dilapidated shack with an abusive irresponsible neglectful father That is not something this character would have done Next Tate befriends her and presumably loves her He knows everyone has left her and he does also How could you do that to someone you love Neither character has a reasonable excuse for not contacting her in any way for yearsOverall the author used too much drama to develop the character she was trying to create Owens needs to show that she believes in the intelligence of her readers and not author splain constantly Yikes I did not like this one
