4 1/2 stars. I adored this book! I didn't have any expectations when I started it and found it to be a witty, charming fable (I listened to the audiobook which is excellent). WIth its emphasis on empathy and understanding, The House in the Cerulean Sea is the perfect novel to read during Pride Month. ( )

This book charmed me so. It is a witty, whimsical, and energizing story that kept me laughing out loud and longing for this to be a reality. I wanted all the characters to be my friend and could vividly imagine the house, the island, and all the inhabitants. That was possible due to the fantastic writing. All the characters were greatly written with immense detail having all their personalities and character traits distinct and different.

My only disappointment is that the story ended. Dread is what I felt as I was nearing the end, but the ending was beautiful, and everything a reader could wish for with a story as delightful as this.

What to read after this?! A conundrum all readers can relate to once finishing a book that had such immersive world-building such as this book. The House in the Cerulean Sea is now one of my favorites and will be re-read repeatedly. ( )

I was not able to finish this book because I just couldn’t get interested in the characters. I usually like YA books and get into them quickly but this one just didn’t do it for me. I didn’t give it a rating because I only read 125 pages and didn’t feel like continuing.

Magical. Light and airy. Reminds me of Good Omens and The Secret of Platform 13. ( )

The truth is, I almost didn't read this book--and yet, in the end, I'm so glad I did. So, let me back up.

The blurbs for this one kept scaring me off. I must have gotten pointed toward it, or come across it on my own, a dozen times--and then, each time, I got scared off from reading it. Why? Because the blurbs make it sound like a slightly magical Hallmark movie, albeit one with a gay couple at its center. And I'm not the Hallmark movie type. I love fantasy, but I tend to go for darker reads. Give me the choice between a horror novel and a romance, I'll take the horror novel. Give me the choice between a love story set against a war and a love story set in a magical wonderland, and I'll take the one set against the war. Call something 'feel good' (as more than one blurb here does), describe it as 'an enchanting love story' (as this book's back cover does), or talk about a found family or lessons learned in the pages of a book... well, generally speaking, you'll have done a great job of scaring me off. Chances are, anything someone is describing as 'nice' and 'sweet' and 'feel-good' isn't anything that's really going to draw me in. I'm happy for those who enjoy it, but it's not my cup of tea.

And then my book club chose this book to read for June, so I finally--albeit with a slightly raised eyebrow and a wince--picked up the book.

And I loved it.

Admittedly, I had a hard time getting into it--in the beginning, it felt a bit too much like a fairy tale for adults, or a sweet romance tied up in a fantasy bow to draw in spec fiction readers. But once Linus Baker and his cat got to their island destination and I got introduced to the fantastical inhabitants the book would center around... well, the book had me.

Klune's writing is fantastic, and he does a marvelous job of blending humor with magic, and real-world concerns with fantastical elements. There were also moments here that took me back to my favorite Disney musicals from the 1960s/1970s--the original Doctor DoLittle with Rex Harrison, the original Peter's Dragon, The Happiest Millionaire, etc.--in the way the book tackled the most serious topics imaginable while still holding onto the characters who pulled us into the work, and all of their innocence and magic and goodness. When it came to the serious stuff, there was no sugar-coating, and that's what I always fear with new family movies or when something is described as 'sweet' or 'feel-good'.

So, would I recommend this, even to those who go in for darker reads? Absolutely. Ignore the blurbs, and dive right in. I look forward to picking up more of Klune's work from here on out. ( )
