Review of "Where the Crawdads Sing"

Review of audio book by 

This is a strong character-driven story that delves deep into the psyche of the 'Marsh Girl' told from her perspective. Kya is a young girl left to her own devices to survive the environment and the hostility encountered from abuse at home and the local townspeople. (mostly told in her POV).
There were a few places in the story when other character's mindsets were explored. Unfortunately a few spots of head-hopping mishaps as well, but overall I listened to this novel and was impressed with the subtle plot development and the authentic characterizations of all.
The narrator performed superbly, true voices for each of the characters and a very enjoyable tone throughout. The ending was a surprise, the very end, and worth the wait. I recommend this book for those who enjoy heartfelt stories about people overcoming obstacles and personally thriving.
