I finished Remarkably Bright Creatures and was relieved that I can return to reading better books. Remarkably Bright Creatures tells the story of Tova, an old woman whose son mysteriously died years and years ago. To a works the night shift in an aquarium as a cleaning woman. She’s fascinated by the octopus there who’s remarkably bright like all of his species. The mischievous octopus keeps sneaking out of his tank.
The third major character is Cameron, a man in his twenties who can’t handle responsibility. As a child, his carefree mom abandoned him.
All three cross paths and with the help of the sea creature the humans lives are permanently changed.
Despite all the facts about octopi, the contrived plot and ho hum writing left me cold.
