Quaranreads • A Traveller's Book List
Over the past 50 days, I've been asking myself, how does one travel without having the ability to fly? The answer is books! We can still travel through reading or listening to books. With this in mind, I just finished listening to my first audiobook, Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens!
This book tells the story of Kya, a young woman left abandoned and alone in the marsh, where she learns to survive the pros and cons of physical and human nature.
I've only briefly been to Raleigh and Wilmington, North Carolina, and I was nowhere near a marsh, so I enjoyed this book's beautiful description of the land. It makes you want to visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina! I also appreciated how it touches on the themes of loneliness and depression, which I think is very timely, considering most of us are practicing social distancing. We might have to contend with those feelings. Overall, I rate this novel 4 out of 5.
I recommend listening to the audiobook of Crawdads because the reader reads the whole novel in a Southern accent that I wouldn't have read it in if I was reading the text from the book. It's very entertaining!
Also, if you'd like to listen to further discussion of the book, check out Episode 1 of the Lit Society Podcast posted in January 2020!
Have you read or listened to Where the Crawdads Sing? What did you think? Stay tuned for more #quaranreads! My goal is to add more books to my traveller's book list!
Stay healthy and take care!!!
