Lily and the Octopus

(1)
Lily and the Octopus is a novel about finding that special someone to share your life with.For Ted Flask, that someone is Lily, and she happens to be a dog.This novel reminds us how 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.Reminiscent of The Life of Pi and The Art of Racing in the Rain, with spins into magic realism and beautifully evoked universal truths of love, loyalty and loss, a hilariously sardonic and not altogether reliable narrator, and one unforgettable hound who simple wisdom will break your heart and put it back together again, Lily and the Octopus captures the search for meaning in death and introduces a dazzling new voice in fiction.

“There is darkness, but there is also light.”
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Niederhasli am 07.01.2018
Bewertet: gebundene Ausgabe

Being the proud human of a Dachshund just like Lily, I found this book to be hugely touching, extremely humorous and heart-wrenchingly difficult to read.

Being the proud human of a Dachshund just like Lily, I found this book to be hugely touching, extremely humorous and heart-wrenchingly difficult to read. I found myself laughing at the many similarities that seem to exist among this peculiar breed, only to be shaken a few pages later by the harsh realization that one day it will be my turn to take this journey. By the last few chapters I was fighting back tears… But Rowley’s novel goes beyond the story of his dog’s fight for life and digs deep into the human psyche, touching on subjects that move us all. “There is darkness, but there is also light.” A profound read for anyone who struggles with loss or finds themselves grappling with the meaning of life.
