This Was an Unexpected Pleasure
Where the Crawdads Sing - Delia Owens

What an adventure that was. The narration was so good I easily got lost in this audiobook's world. The story was so simple and yet so complex. The characters were amazing, by the end of the book I felt like. they were family. Seriously how many books leave you feeling that way ? 
We follow a young girl, a swamp girl who from a very young age is abandoned by her parents to live alone in the swamp. She suffers, but never quits, at 7 she figures out how to get the basics. The adults in town thing she's a dirty marsh thing and want nothing to do with her. She spends one horrible day at school before running back to the swamp where noting hates her. Years pass, she's alone except for one boy and an older couple outcasts in a different way. The boy teaches her to read and sets her life on fire. She takes that lesson and feeds it. Her life and her love of the swamp are such bitterly beautiful. I loved this story, and don't think I'll ever forget the Marsh girl. There was so much pain, love, suffering, happiness, and beauty.

Web London is working out who kill his team
Last Man Standing - David Baldacci

Web is HRT, hostage rescue team. His team was setup and were killed. 

 

That lead him to find help with a friend and a psychiatrist.

 

The plot twit is good. And it is interesting on finding out who is really the bad guys. 

 

There are few key players. 

 

One group is the HRT and FBI who supposed to be the good guys. 

 

One group is the drug lord Big F. He got a son who is at the scene of the setup and now missing. 

 

One group is the one behind the setup. 

 

One group is a cult called Free Society. Who has killed a school boy years ago. 

 

All the players are in and Web has no friend with exception Romano and Claire. 

 

Billy and Gwen were the parents of the dead boy and they were under threat too. A few persons who were involved are now dead. 

 

Enjoyable read.

Reading progress update: I've read 445 out of 656 pages.
Last Man Standing - David Baldacci

The story started with Web froze and his team got killed.

 

Now Web was an outcast and he wanted to know who killed his team.

 

More people get killed and now they think either related to drug lord or a cult. 

 

The clue is there and we discovered clue as Web discovered them himself. 

 

Romano and Cove and one psychiatrist Claire is still on his side.
