The Atlanta Journal-Constitution: A beautifully executed tale
The title of Delia Owens’ debut novel, ‘Where the Crawdads Sing,’ refers to a place ‘far in the bush where critters are wild, still behaving like critters.’ Indeed, the untamed North Carolina marshland setting is not merely a backdrop for the remarkable story that unfolds, but it shares center stage with the unforgettable protagonist, Kya.

The beautifully executed tale offers a reminder that despite all of society’s material trappings, humans ultimately mimic the survivalist and carnal behavior of animals. Owens paints such a vivid picture of life on the periphery of civilization’s reach that the reader will undoubtedly gain a newfound appreciation for the marsh, an environment ‘where grass grows in water, and water flows into the sky.’
Becca J. G. Godwin, “‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ pits natural beauty vs. human ugliness in a Carolina marsh living,” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, September 29, 2018.
