Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt, Read by Marin Ireland and Michael Urie
A Fanciful Listening Experience
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss a fantastical debut audiobook that will enchant listeners: Remarkably Bright Creatures. Gifted vocal artist Marin Ireland portrays Tova, a 70-year-old widow, and Ireland’s encouraging tones suit Tova, whose compassion touches everyone in her small Washington town. She cleans at an aquarium, where she has formed an unlikely friendship with Marcellus, a giant Pacific octopus with acerbic wit and shrewd observations wonderfully captured by Michael Urie. A fanciful and enjoyable listening experience about community and friendship.
