Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

This novel is well written. Of a pleasant invoice, it is advisable of a logic based on returns on the past whenever that is necessary without so much to weigh down the text.

The story is unique and allows the author to eliminate it here and there and in a safe way can no longer a lot of information on animal behavior. The characters are for some endearing for others, repulsive, but all have a confusing, strong and rough course just like the decoration so brilliantly described, located in the marsh of Barkley Cove a small city of North Carolina.

The intrigue, the investigation and the end point build up the pressure quietly, but surely. The reader does not want to let go of a furious desire to protect, to prevent, to strike, to rebel or to understand, but he is there in the heart of the marsh in “shade on the stump of the oak or in the sun on the beach ‘surrounded by wild geese, cranes, insects and shells.

“Miles of withered herbs, having dispersed their seeds, tilted their heads in defeat. The wind was unleashed, and agitated the dry stems in a deafening din. And the author, who understands nature, invests it and we offer a case to deal with freedom, abandonment, separation and above all rumor. The rumor that swells over the pages, which splashes leading to the passage of terrible consequences, stubborn injuries and missed acts.

A great time to read. An unusual encounter with nature in its grandest, with wildlife in its most extravagant and with characters that for my part I had never met.

A very good novel.
