Combining the emotional depth of The Art of Racing in the Rain with the magical spirit of The Life of Pi, Lily and the Octopus is an epic adventure of the heart.When you sit down with Lily and the Octopus, you will be taken on an unforgettable ride. The magic of this novel is in the read, and we don't want to spoil it by giving away too many details. We can tell you that this is a story about that special someone: the one you trust, the one you can't live without. For Ted Flask, that someone special is his aging companion Lily, who happens to be a dog. Lily and the Octopus reminds us how it feels to love fiercely, how difficult it can be to let go, and how the fight for those we love is the greatest fight of all. Remember the last book you told someone they had to read? Lily and the Octopus is the next one.

the narration was well done but the octopus bits went on far too long for me.

I loved listening to this book. Steven Rowley captured what it is like to have a dog. And not only that but the heartache that you go through at the end of their life-- when is it the right time to let them go. It made me laugh (Michael Urie can really speak Dachshund) and it made me cry, and it made me feel lucky to have had the great pets that I had.

Make sure you have tissues nearby as you listen to Ted and Lily walk down a path neither of them wants to be on. Fantastic narration by Michael Urie, who speaks perfect dachshund.
