    Description

    Remarkably Bright Creatures is a beautiful examination of how loneliness can be transformed, cracked open, with the slightest touch from another living thing.”—Kevin Wilson, author of Nothing to See Here

    For fans of A Man Called Ove, a charming, witty and compulsively enjoyable exploration of friendship, reckoning, and hope that traces a widow's unlikely connection with a giant Pacific octopus

    After Tova Sullivan’s husband died, she began working the night shift at the Sowell Bay Aquarium, mopping floors and tidying up. Keeping busy has always helped her cope, which she’s been doing since her eighteen-year-old son, Erik, mysteriously vanished on a boat in Puget Sound over thirty years ago.

    Tova becomes acquainted with curmudgeonly Marcellus, a giant Pacific octopus living at the aquarium. Marcellus knows more than anyone can imagine but wouldn’t dream of lifting one of his eight arms for his human captors—until he forms a remarkable friendship with Tova.

    Ever the detective, Marcellus deduces what happened the night Tova’s son disappeared. And now Marcellus must use every trick his old invertebrate body can muster to unearth the truth for her before it’s too late. 

    Shelby Van Pelt’s debut novel is a gentle reminder that sometimes taking a hard look at the past can help uncover a future that once felt impossible.

    Commentaires

    "This fantastical debut audiobook will enchant listeners. Gifted vocal artist Marin Ireland portrays Tova, a 70-year-old widow with a heart of gold whose teenage son died under mysterious circumstances 30 years earlier. Ireland's encouraging tones suit Tova, whose compassion touches everyone, and every creature, in her small Washington town.... A fanciful and enjoyable listening experience." (AudioFile)

    Hidden gem, incredible narration!

    So yup, I searched for Marin Ireland narration (because I'd listen to the dictionary if she were reading it) and found this great little story. I never would have found this book, or likely given it a chance if not for my loyalty to Marin. I LOVED this quirky, story where someone finally gives octopi the respect the deserve for their intelligence. Michael Urie made his character come alive with wit and personality which is saying something. Give this a shot... This book was wonderful.

    A Most Enjoyable Book

    Remarkably Bright Creatures is one of the most enjoy books I’ve listened to in a long, long time. Terrific story, thoroughly engaging characters, and two of the best narrators I’ve ever heard.

    I think I’m in Love!

    With Marcellus, of course. Perhaps my most favorite literary character ever! If I could give the narrators of this little gem of a book 10 stars, I would. Thank you Shelby Van Pelt for your vivid imagination and for teaching me about these extraordinary creatures of the sea., as well as the complexities of human nature.

    Excellent!!!

    Excellent story. Excellent characters. Excellent Narration. I double checked the author shortly after starting this book because the writing had a Fredrick Backman feel to it. I also recognized the narrator as the same one who narrates the Backman novels. I loved this as much as my favorite Backman novels. Downside: this has left me with a serious book-hangover.

    Sweet story

    I haven't read fiction in a while, I mainly listen to history or memoirs. I am very glad I got to hear this story and I really enjoyed it. It is simple but made me feel nice and I needed that right now. I hope you enjoy it too.

    The characters hooked me

    An unusual, quirky, heartwarming tale that kept me listening. The octopus had me at hello.

    One of the best!

    Pure delight! I laughed out loud, I cried a little, I thought hard. Great characters - big love for Marcellus and an increasing appreciation for octopuses. Some of the best hours of words in my head…

    Cephalopod

    I have a soft spot for cephalopods so I am not surprised that I like this book. Of course, Marcellus is my favorite character. There were more than a few times I thought I was going to not like some of the other characters but they all redeemed themselves rather quickly each time. Some of the overall plot was predictable but that was okay because the details were the fun part. This is a book I can reread.

    Whimsically entertaining

    What a unique story filled with compassion and humanity. A lovely read for a summer day. Performers were wonderful.
