Octopus have always intrigued me. They are so alien and yet so human at the same time. Marcellus grabbed me right from the beginning. His realistic, curmudgeonly, yet caring attitude was just perfect and I wish he was able to share more of his story with us. The human characters are written equally as well and I liked that Tova, Marcellus and Cameron shared connections through their journeys in grief, loss and sadness. Tova's character is very practical and has chosen to deal with her grief by keeping everything meticulously clean and taking life matter of factly. I was surprised at how well Tova got along with Cameron who is very smart, yet unpredictable. As these characters become part of one anothers life, Marcellus seems to be the only one who sees their connection. I loved the way that their stories all collided and how everything ended up. Remarkable Bright Creatures is an amazing book with charming characters .
