Linus Baker leads a quiet, solitary life. At forty, he lives in a tiny house with a devious cat and his old records. As a Case Worker at the Department in Charge Of Magical Youth, he spends his days overseeing the well-being of children in government-sanctioned orphanages.When Linus is unexpectedly summoned by Extremely Upper Management he's given a curious and highly classified assignment: travel to Marsyas Island Orphanage, where six dangerous children reside: a gnome, a sprite, a wyvern, an unidentifiable green blob, a were-Pomeranian, and the Antichrist. Linus must set aside his fears and determine whether or not they're likely to bring about the end of days.But the children aren't the only secret the island keeps. Their caretaker is the charming and enigmatic Arthur Parnassus, who will do anything to keep his wards safe. As Arthur and Linus grow closer, long-held secrets are exposed, and Linus must make a choice: destroy a home or watch the world burn.An enchanting story, masterfully told, The House in the Cerulean Sea is about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place - and realizing that family is yours.… (més)

I was told about this book by a friend, and I’m so glad he recommended it. It’s such a beautiful mix of silliness and serious subjects.

The book begins with a look into the dull life Linus Baker, a human in a world where creatures from folklore are real. He works a caseworker for the Department in Charge of Magical Youth (DICOMY for short), inspecting orphanages to make sure the children are being treated well. Linus is miserable at his office, but he follows the rules and truly believes he’s helping the magical children he’s assigned to. When Extremely Upper Management assigns him to visit and report on an orphanage by the sea, he has no choice but to do his job and go, despite being kept in the dark about what awaits him until he gets there. When he reaches the orphanage on the beautiful Marsyas island and gets to know its inhabitants, he begins to learn about himself and how unjust the system is just as much as he learns about the children and their mysterious caregiver.

The House on the Cerulean Sea is beautiful and hilarious and at times, heartbreaking. Klune builds a world that is absurd and over-the-top but still somehow feels completely relevant. It’s not hard to grasp the main points of this story. Magical people are feared by humans because they are the unknown, just like people in the LGBTQ community and people of color. One quote that stuck with me in particular;

“Hate is loud, but I think you’ll learn it’s because it’s only a few people shouting, desperate to be heard. You might not ever be able to change their minds, but so long as you remember you’re not alone, you will overcome.”

It’s a strong message about acceptance. And the characters are all wonderful. The children are endearing and funny, especially Lucy, a very intelligent six-year-old with a dark sense of humor.

If you enjoy British humor, fantasy, and queer representation (and throw in the antichrist to top it all off), you’ll enjoy The House in the Cerulean Sea. ( )

Both the content and narrator were not to my liking. ( )

The House in the Cerulean Sea is a lovely book. It's a bit slow getting started, but all of the buildup pays off. There are a lot of funny parts, and so many heartfelt moments. The characters have depth and they are genuinely likable. I love the relationships between all of the characters on the island. The romance is subtle for much of the book, but it's very sweet.

The story is wrapped up with this book, but if there is ever a sequel I'll definitely want to read it. ( )

This is still one of my absolute favorite books! ( )

Linus Baker's inspects a unique home for magical youth.

A relisten of this wonderful book in anticipation of the sequel. Henning is OK, but I deeply dislike some of his character choices (Arthur's in particular). ( )

If ever there was an author to watch out for, [Klune] is definitely that author.

A delightful tale about chosen families, and how to celebrate differences.
afegit per Dariah | editaLibrary Journal
 
A beautiful little gem of both irony and, yes, kindness.
afegit per Dariah | editaFantasy & Science Fiction
 
This inclusive fantasy is quite possibly the greatest feel-good story ever to involve the Antichrist.... The House in the Cerulean Sea will delight fans of Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series and any reader looking for a burst of humor and hope.
afegit per Dariah | editaShelf Awareness
 
This is a sweet narrative about the value of asking questions and the benefits of giving people (especially children) a chance to be safe, protected, and themselves, regardless of what assumptions one might glean from, say, reading their case file.

“There are mysteries that may never be solved, no matter how hard we try. And if we spend too long trying to solve them, we may miss what’s right in front of us. The world is a weird and wonderful place. Why must we try and explain it all away?” (p. 114)
“I am but paper. Brittle and thin. I am held up to the sun, and it shines right through me. I get written on, and I can never be used again. These scratches are a history. They’re a story. Hey tell things for others s to read, but they only see the words, and not what the words are written upon. I am but paper, and though there are many like me, none are exactly the same. I am parched parchment. I have lines. I have holes. Get me wet, and I melt. Light me on fire, and I burn. Take me in hardened hands, and I crumple. I tear. I am but paper. Brittle and thin.” (p. 133)
"Don't you wish you were here?"
