Both narrators were excellent. The Scottish accent done by Marin Ireland was spot on! Definitely a book I will recommend to EVERYONE! I can't wait until Shelby Van Pelt writes her next book.
Loved it and the voices too.
Great book, love the animals, very uplifting
Loved this book - story was wonderful
I enjoyed this book tremendously.
It took a little bit to get involved with the characters but the narrators did such a wonderful job that, when I was 100% absorbed into their lives, I embraced the story head-on. In fact, I even cried a little at the end. This book was a light, happy read.
I enjoyed every minute of this book. How refreshing it is to read a book without detailed descriptions of sex among the characters.
Lovely book!!!! Absolutely lovey!!
Could stop listening! Keeps you guessing until the end.
Fantastic read! Loved the POV of the octopus done by Michael Urie was amazing and a perfect pairing of character to voice.
This is one of my favorites of 2022! So heart-warming. The plot was paced perfectly. I loved the perspectives.
A beautiful charming book that touches one’s soul! I simply love Marcellous. My only criticism is with the narration of Cameron, a thirty year old guy. He consistently sounds and acts like a 17 year old. To some degree I understand this is intentional, but it would’ve benefited the character by balancing it a bit more with his actual age.
Other than that, I loved the book!
LOVED this book!!! Marcellus is wonderful! All the characters were expertly teased out. They had depth and quirks and a genuineness that one doesn’t see often anymore.
The narration was great. I could tell the difference between all the characters, their moods and level of emotion.
Will definitely recommend!
I so enjoyed this story! The narrator was super and has now perked my interest in octopuses... I recommend this story!
The narrators made a wonderful book even more interesting!
This was a great book! The narration was perfect. I really felt like I got to know Marcellus and all the human characters. The plot was very well developed. I highly recommend this book. I probably will listen to it again.
Great story. Best narration ever.
Really enjoyed this book. Interesting characters, well written. A little predictable but worth reading
Very enjoyable. Especially liked the insight into the Octopus’ intelligence and his voice!
Love that there is a separate reader to take on the part of the octopus
I thought this book was absolutely fantastic
Loved the book. Two intertwined stories that kept challenging me on what would happen and how. Very special
A very sweet and endearing story. A perfect weekend read/listen.
A joy to read!
What a unique idea! I thoroughly enjoyed the intertwining stories that cleverly pulled everything together in the end. Although the female narrator did an excellent job capturing the various accents, I felt that her rendition of Cameron came across as rather juvenile. He sounded like a teenager instead of a 30-something adult man.
That said - I still highly recommend this tender-hearted read!
Marcellus’s voice was exquisite, loved it!
I absolutely loved this book! Highly recommend.
LOVED this book! Loved the narration! I highly recommend!!
Who knew a book about a 70 year old cleaning lady and an aging octopus could be so intriguing and fascinating. I loved it
Narrators bring book to life. Really enjoyed the story!!
The book is charming with engaging characters that pull you into the story. Both narrator’s are wonderful using distinct voices that eliminate any character confusion. Additionally, the voice acting is excellent!
I loved this book from cover to cover. The narrators were excellent!
Good story and well read except the main characters voice, Tova was read with an oddly sarcastic tone.
Loved this book. Narrator was fantastic
I loved this book. My daughters recommended it to me. I’m so glad they did. Just a full, sweet story.
Very unusual, well written and thought-provoking book. I enjoyed it!
Different than most, enjoyed the entirety.
Great book but too much unnecessary language. Got old and in the way of the story.
I loved the story and the narrators were amazing!
Who knew a book about a talking octopus would be so charming and endearing?! It’s hard not to fall in love with every character. I highly recommend.
This is such a sweet book. I enjoyed it very much.
Excellent story... loved the narration!
This book had me talking out loud objecting to the decisions of some of the characters, I haven't done that in awhile. I cried at the end... it was a wonderful book.
Though predictable at times the story was endearing and hilarious. A great story with an unexpected character!
Superfluous verbiage ad
Infinitum , lots to elaborate on before getting to the point !
If you love Ove, you’ll love this Marcellus and Tova.
My favorite listen of the year so far!
