THE SOUL OF AN OCTOPUS A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness

by | Read by Sy Montgomery

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Sy Montgomery is fascinated by octopuses, and why wouldn't she be? With the ability to change colors at a whim to camouflage itself, expand and contract its body to fit in tight spaces, and taste through the many suckers on its tentacles, the octopus has many mysterious qualities that have intrigued, enraptured, and even frightened people for centuries. As she narrates her experiences meeting and learning about different octopuses, she sounds palpably excited; her enthusiasm for the octopus and her fellow octopus enthusiasts shines. Given that Montgomery is a layperson, what the book lacks in terms of in-depth scientific exploration is made up for by her evident eagerness to understand the octopuses she encounters at her local aquarium and on scuba expeditions.
