Read: Where the Crawdads Sing

4 Comments

I am a total sucker for any book that details life in the swamp or marsh. Any book or any movie. Heck, I’ve seen the modern remake of Great Expectations about a hundred times just because of the scenes from the gulf. Same for Pelican Brief. This book wasn’t what I expected but I did enjoy reading it. My wife read it first and sobbed her eyes out which was odd because I didn’t find it THAT sad. Yes, the main character goes through A LOT but she is so overwhelmingly awesome I never once felt like it was over for her. Again, it’s about marshland. There is nothing cooler than this ecosystem.

But this book is about more than a marsh. Race, history, crime, science, and history. Culture clash, stereotypes, and the power of someone possessed by a love of the natural world. Delia Owens makes contact with Where the Crawdads Sing. Only a matter of time before this hits the big screen. Get it, read it.

  1. So I’m thinking this Milnor guy must have a huge library. HUGE. Been listening to audio books while on the treadmill trying to slim down my old fat body.

  2. And you see who’s book club it is, and I bet her production company as well making the film as we speak.
