The Crying Bird wasn't at all what I expected, not that I can actually put into words what it was that I was expecting. This book is about a woman whose husband and young daughter died so, of course, it had very sad parts. However, there where times when I literally laughed out loud!
At one point while we were in the car, my husband driving, I was reading. I read the section where 'Limpy' was giving her the snail and I busted out laughing! I had to reread it to the carload of people! That was a great part :)
There were a few things that I didn't love but overall this was a good book. It kind of ended abruptly, it was almost too simple, but I still enjoyed it. Glad that this book was sent my way!
