"For fans of A Man Called Ove, a luminous debut novel about a widow's unlikely friendship with a giant Pacific octopus reluctantly residing at the local aquarium-and the truths she finally uncovers about her son's disappearance 30 years ago"-- 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.… (mere)

Loved this book. Being from the Pacific Northwest, it brought me home. The characters were imperfect but likeable in different ways. I loved the octopus. A theme of dealing with loss and grief and how those feelings impact us. ( )

Tova has a gig cleaning the local aquarium. She's recently lost her husband to cancer and still hasn't come to terms with the death? disappearance? of her son after his high school graduation. She's thinking about what she'll do next in her life.
Love the way the stories and narratives intertwined. Marcellus, the octopus in the aquarium, Cameron, who shows up in Washington State looking for his birth dad, and Tova. I like the way people (and animals) become important parts of each other's lives. Charming, heart felt, clever. Recommend. ( )

I listened to this book and thoroughly enjoyed it! Marcellus, the amazing octopus, was my favorite character. I loved his sassy, you-can't-keep-me-in-a-tank attitude stirred with a bit of Frazer Crane, which the speaker beautifully conveyed. Although it was predictable at times, this did not take away from my enjoyment of the book. If I had had the time, I would have listened to this book in one sitting! I liked the author's way of putting a new spin on her metaphors and similies, I just received my book order so I can get my take on the characters, but I think I will hear Marcellus's voice that I heard on the audiobook! .

There's a lot of good in this book but I found the prose clunky, the characters playing overly to stereotype, and the ending too pat. So a bit of a mixed bag. My sister loved it though. ( )

He rises and inspects the refereshment table in the corner of the lobby, which, inexplicably, offers coffee, but not tea. All this leather and ivy, and they can't even furnish a spot of Early Grey? What rubbish! (p. 70)
What sort of treasures comprise my Collection, you ask? Well, where to begin? Three glass marbles, two plastic superheroes, one emerald solitaire ring. Four credit cards and a driver's license. One jeweled barrette. One human tooth. Why that look of disgust? I did not remove it myself. The former owner wiggled it our on a school field trip then proceeded to lose track of it.

What else? Two devices for which I do not know the human word. I suppose they are...plugs? Humans stick them in the orifices of their youngest children to quiet them. (p. 95)
"How do you, like, go on?" He looks down at her and swallows hard. "I mean, he was here one day and gone the next. How do you recover from something like that?"

Tova hesitates. "You don't recover. Not all the way. But you do move on. You have to." (p. 346)
Humans. For the most part, you are dull and blundering. But occasionally, you can be remarkably bright creatures. (p. 350)
...Puget Sound shivers like a great gray ghost beyond the pier. (p. 354)
