  • I loved this book, I didn’t want it to end. Well written and I couldn’t put it down!! The book was perfection in every way!!!

  • I'm reading this now and it is just one of those novels you just snuggle up with and just immerse yourself in.

    So sweet!!!

    For me she is Kya!
    You can still see the youth in her face!
    I just finished the book and just wanted to know who D. O. Is

    Now the book is more completed after seeing her.

    Thank you!

    Beautiful lady!!!

    Don t make notices in the night, speak voicemails.
    And you will all understand 😉🙃

    Love that Book! When Kya died I really lost a few tears!!!

  • Just finished the book. Best book I ever read. I only read it in one day… As much as I love Harry Potter it took me 3 days to read Harry Potter this book totally captivated me. I fell so in love with kaya that I too am a poet and I wrote a poem about her. I'm so excited about the movie but I was really wishing that Reese Witherspoon was going to be acting in the role of kya. This book will have you laughing, crying, getting mad, and just plain wanting to beat someone up but you will definitely agree that this book is definitely worth reading.

    A decade to write it 🥺💓

  • Most unputdownable book I've read in a long while.
    Beautifully written and touches the heart and soul.
    Hopefully there is more to come Kia seemed so real and am still feel sad thinking of her plus twist at end of story.💘💘

    Finished the book in 2 days, couldn’t put it down! Only one thing about it I did not like or understand … the cover picture, supposedly Kya in a boat but the wrong kind of boat, there was never a reference to her paddling a canoe (left handed) always a small boat with a motor, why then?? Why not take the time to be accurate??

  • I have a copy of the book can't wait to read it

  • Bubba DadarMay 1, 2022Reply

    They’re shooting the movie right now as I’m typing. Omg I can’t wait!!

  • Well written,telling a compelling story.

  • I almost have no words to praise this book…it will remain with ma always…has no book has ever done…thank you Delia Owens!

  • Is there a movie???

  • I use to hate reading I am dyslexic and I’m half way reading this book and because of it I love reading I love how it’s written and the story line

  • Poosy WoosyMay 1, 2022Reply

    Lmao, I just applied to be an extra for this.

    I have not read the book yet. Personally, I unintentionally ended up isolated and spent years trying to get back to the active life I had before my first husband. Sometimes my life was normal and other times it did not as I hoped. Needless to say, I am interested on her take on life.

    I enjoyed and recommend "Where the Crawdads Sing." I had to take breaks from it, my reactions were strong.

  • I thought her name sounded familiar, now I know why. I read a couple of the books she and her Ex wrote and I had seen them on National Geographic programs.

  • I loved this book.

  • Definitely the best audio book ever…. Listened to it multiple times….
    Wonderful story!! 😀

  • Thank you for such a great novel.

  • Very good book

  • Truly one of best books ever written!!! I am avid reader and this one has never left my soul!! One word—- EPIC☺️🙏

  • I hadn’t made the connection with the African Delia Owens, I don’t know why. Now it makes sense.

  • I am late to the party when it comes to singing my praises of
    'Where the Crawdads Sing'
    At once an uncomfortable examination of human loneliness and cruel abandonment, then next a beautiful reminder of the human soul's ability to heal in the arms of Mother Nature.
