REVIEW – Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

This is a very hyped book that fell flat for me. The writing is beautiful, don’t get me wrong.

But I must be too much of a cynic, not enough of a romantic, someone who reads too many “twisty” books for this one to affect me.

I just didn’t find the storyline realistic – I know it’s fiction, but I felt that it was intended to be a “real” story and it just wasn’t believable. And I couldn’t connect with the romantic plot(s).

I didn’t think the “murder mystery” part of the story was really necessary, either. The rest of the book would have worked without it.
