RECOMENDADO POR JENNA BUSH EN SU CLUB DE LECTURA DEL TODAY SHOW

Marcellus es un pulpo increíblemente curioso y descarado. Cada día, mucha gente pasa por delante de su tanque en el acuario de Sowell Bay, aunque pocos se detienen demasiado. En cambio, Tova, la limpiadora, le ha cogido cariño y, mientras barre, le cuenta cuánto echa de menos a su hijo, desaparecido hace treinta años en el mar.

A Marcellus no se le escapa nada y es mucho más inteligente de lo que nadie podría imaginar, pero nunca se le ocurriría mover un solo tentáculo para ayudar a uno de sus captores humanos... hasta que comienza a formar una inesperada amistad con Tova. Con su perspicacia de detective, Marcellus ha deducido lo que sucedió la noche de la desaparición. Y ahora tendrá que ingeniárselas desde el otro lado del cristal para revelarle la verdad, antes de que sea demasiado tarde.

Una novela deslumbrante y conmovedora sobre una amistad capaz de vencer la peor de las soledades. Y una historia de esperanza sobre dos almas generosas, criaturas imperfectas... y, quizá por eso, increíblemente luminosas.

A New York Times Bestseller!

A Read With Jenna Today Show Book Club Pick!

"Remarkably Bright Creatures [is] an ultimately feel-good but deceptively sensitive debut. . . . Memorable and tender." -- Washington Post

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.

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.
