This is an audiobook best appreciated by knowing very little about the plot before starting. The discoveries and realizations along the way make the listening experience exponentially more powerful. And if one is listening in a public place, they can also make the experience a little embarrassing. Listeners need know only that Steven Rowley's debut is a beautiful love story. Michael Urie narrates with a heartfelt passion that makes one giggle and laugh, nod in understanding and sob with sorrow. Urie's authentic emotion comes out in every character, whether it's Lily the dog's excitement, Ted the human's frustration, or the nameless octopus's apathy. This isn't an audiobook to take on your public transit ride, but it's one that should not be missed. J.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
