Description

"Daniel Henning is a great narrator for this quirky and theatrical audiobook.... Henning revels in a cornucopia of characters, diving into nuanced voices and colorful moments with accents and growls, tone shifts and whispers.... This is definitely a title for those who enjoy fantasy stories replete with gnomes and witches and all in between." (AudioFile Magazine) 

Lambda Literary Award-winning author TJ Klune's breakout contemporary fantasy

Linus Baker is a by-the-book case worker in the Department in Charge of Magical Youth. He's tasked with determining whether six dangerous magical children are likely to bring about the end of the world. 

Arthur Parnassus is the master of the orphanage. He would do anything to keep the children safe, even if it means the world will burn. And his secrets will come to light.

The House in the Cerulean Sea is an enchanting love story, masterfully told, about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place - and realizing that family is yours.

A Macmillan Audio production from Tor Books

"1984 meets The Umbrella Academy with a pinch of Douglas Adams thrown in." (Gail Carriger, New York Times best-selling author of Soulless)

incredible 😍

It's a time for a recommendation. 🎧 Narrator score🎧 ; ok. It's an unknown narrator for me and I can say that I'm not disappointed at all.... somehow I was thinking that Derrick Mcclain could be fantastic for this book. (I probably imagined him in my mind since I read the blurb of this book, and waited for it.) But, the narrator was marvelous. and he brought to life every single character. Lucy was that boy that you expect him to be. And Sall my beloved little Sall (I will not write any spoilers, but he is my absolute favorite) Level of steam🔥: it's a clean book. Every single person even an homophobic person can probably read this book and he will not find it offensive. Level of anxiety and sadness😱😢: Its not a sad story. It's more a story about seeing the world as it is. I did felt melancholy in some parts of the book. And I did shed some tears.... but it's TJ and he will explain emotion like no one else. And it's me ....I'm a crybaby. The book itself📖: where to even begin? The biggest the expectation the even more bigger enjoyment. I know it's not the saying, but in this case it was what I felt. Yes it's a YA, but it is definitely for everyone. I think this book needs to become a book that we teach our children in schools. It's a book about the notion of reality, acceptance, understanding and about how words can harm but you can actually endure it and be stronger because of this specific reason. Every boy or girl in this book took a peace of my heart with them. And Lionel, this incredible man that thinks he's too ordinary discovered that he isn't. It's an incredible journey, and before I'll conclude my words. I want to say to Tj thank you for the songs you chosen. I maybe only 29, but I was given the biggest musical ejection that a girl could be given and the reason that it took me 2 and a half days to finish this book was, because I was stopping the book and listened to the songs. It was absolutely another delight from this incredible story teller

Nice and Family friendly.

well written easy listening nice little fairytale whith a sprinkle of poetry. I like the mc, the children and the plot. most of all I like the lack of sex, which makes the book family friendly.

Good Story Line

The cause of the two star rating deals primarily with the narrator. I guess this is classified as young teen book. It does not have to be but the narrator used a tone and methodology which is intended for those 12 years old and younger. I found this quite disgusting and distracting. Just read the words with out the infantile inflection. The story itself has fairly good substance and good world building. The characters are worth remembering but not as the narrator has depicted. I might listen to another book by this author but I will not listen to any other book with this same narrator. I am disappointed in the presentation.

Wonderful!

This was TJ's first book with a new publisher, and of course, it's wonderful! I honestly can't imagine anything he writes would disappoint me. HE made me fall in love with the people in this story. I don't know how he manages it, but he always does. You care what happens to these extrordinary people. For the life of me, I can't figure out what time period the story takes place, but I suspect it is not a time ever encountered on this Earth. Nevertheless, it all just works. I do hope we get to revisit this world. The narrator did a fantastic job of coming up with unique voices for each of the characters. he conveyed the emotion of every scene. I laughed and cried along with all of them. Oh just stop reading my prattle and go listen to the book! You will love it.

I want this to be in the screens!

I love this. For the sake of comparison, this gives me a touch of ghibli, a touch of Tim Burton, and a heavy load of TJ. It was "more youngster appropriate" than the other books published by the same author (considering a different target audience) but that did not undermine the feels the book gives. In this book, we follow how Linus learn to live instead of being alive. How he went against his principles to find love not only to the Master, the kids but also himself. Can I also add that at one point in the story, I felt as if I was Christopher Robin stumbling into the Hundred Acre Woods and met Pooh and his friends? That's how amazing this book is, Its heartwarming, children friendly and with a lot of family-love. And I have to say, I ADORE Sal. Daniel Henning did an amazing job in voicing the different characters in the book (and there was a LOT of characters). How he portrays the different personalities of the kids was amazing. His narration felt as if I was watching an animated movie on the screen and he singlevoicedly *pun intended* dubbed all the characters in the film. That is indeed an amazing feat. Kudos to Daniel for his works in this book.

I really DO wish I was there!

I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with a TJ Klune book. It was everything a great book should be. I was worried about a new narrator to the Kluneverse family, but Daniel Henning did a spectacular job. I will forever cherish Chauncey! The writing, the message, the characters, the voices... it was all just perfect. Thank you TJ for working so hard, TOR, Daniel Henning and everyone involved in this wonderful story.

Pure perfection

Delightfully written. A wonderful story about a group of misfit orphans and the misfit sent to evaluate their home. Themes of friendship, acceptance, and understand permeate throughout. The characters are unforgettable, and the setting utterly believable from page one. A winner. Daniel Henning's narration is captivating. Every character breathes its own breath.

Beautiful story

There is so much I love about this story. I loved Linus’ journey of self discovery throughout the whole book. The children are delightful and Arthur is absolutely wonderful! Daniel Henning was a completely unknown narrator to me. He really brought this book to life. His voices for Arthur and Linus were perfect!

An absolute delight

This wonderful, wonderful book should be read by everyone! It is such a delight and it's storyline, lessons and beautiful characters are such a joy. What TJ has presented us with us the perfect story for these uncertain times, full of love and light, the perfect use of the Dante's Cave allegory and a lesson for us all. Daniel Henning has captured this story brilliantly in his narration, the children come to life in his interpretation of their voices and his performance especially of Arthur is spot on to what I had imagined it to be. You should absolutely listen to The House in the Cerulean Sea, your heart will thank you. 5 stars.

I could not put this book down

Klune paints a beautiful story about family, love and how perseverance in unity can not just change hearts and minds, but also worlds. Anyone would be a fool to not want to escape to The House in the Cerulean Sea. I'm not crying, you're crying 😭

Heartwarming

I absolutely loved it! TJ Klunes best work so far (I only know the ones available on audible, so there might be one not yet an audiobook). Quirky, funny and happy. At times it is a bit cheesy, but you know, sometimes that is exactly right.

Like Sweet Tea and a Warm Bath

A most adorable story! As someone who has worked with quite a few special children (even though they were a little different brand of special than the kids in the story), the first thing I fell in love with in this story was how true it felt to that. From the protagonist's first impression of the children to the very end of the story, the dynamic felt real and open-hearted. Klune also manages to capture the particular humor you develop in such a profession and I loved seeing that in a novel. The other reason I adore The House in the Cerulean Sea is, of course, the very tender love story at the heart of it. Look, this is a pretty straightforward, very fluffy slowburn fic, with a great premise. No, the plot is not the most surprising, but if you understand the words above you probably would have predicted that anyway. And yet I found myself absolutely captivated and finished the whole thing im two days. It also will probably be my new comfort story whenever I feel down, not something a lot of books have managed. Just do yourself a favour, brew your favourite tea, grab the coziest blanket you own, listen to this magnificent tale and feel much better than you have before.

Heart wrenching!

What a marvel! The story is so simple. But the characters are amazing and lovable. Full of insights into life. Its about love, tolerance, being different, daring to do things different, life choices, child rearing, well being and so much more. All wrapped up in a fantastical tale shining in vibrant colors. The reader is great. I cried. A lot.

Wunderschöne Geschichte!

Hat mir sehr gut gefallen, ich hab mir auch das eine oder andere Tränchen verdrücken müssen. Eine tolle Geschichte über Toleranz und einfach sein dürfen wie man ist. An den Sprecher musste ich mich ein bisschen gewöhnen, aber er hat das tatsächlich gut gemacht.

Eine fantastische, herzerwärmende Geschichte

Was für eine wunderschöne Story!!! Ich wollte nicht, dass es endet...konnte aber gleichzeitig nicht aufhören und habe es in einem Rutsch durch gehört. Die Charaktere sind alle so toll und der Sprecher ist einfach fantastisch und perfekt für die Geschichte!!!
