    Inhaltsangabe

    "Daniel Henning is a great narrator for this quirky and theatrical audiobook.... Henning revels in a cornucopia of characters, diving into nuanced voices and colorful moments with accents and growls, tone shifts and whispers.... This is definitely a title for those who enjoy fantasy stories replete with gnomes and witches and all in between." (AudioFile Magazine) 

    Lambda Literary Award-winning author TJ Klune's breakout contemporary fantasy

    Linus Baker is a by-the-book case worker in the Department in Charge of Magical Youth. He's tasked with determining whether six dangerous magical children are likely to bring about the end of the world. 

    Arthur Parnassus is the master of the orphanage. He would do anything to keep the children safe, even if it means the world will burn. And his secrets will come to light.

    The House in the Cerulean Sea is an enchanting love story, masterfully told, about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place - and realizing that family is yours.

    Like Sweet Tea and a Warm Bath

    A most adorable story! As someone who has worked with quite a few special children (even though they were a little different brand of special than the kids in the story), the first thing I fell in love with in this story was how true it felt to that. From the protagonist's first impression of the children to the very end of the story, the dynamic felt real and open-hearted. Klune also manages to capture the particular humor you develop in such a profession and I loved seeing that in a novel. The other reason I adore The House in the Cerulean Sea is, of course, the very tender love story at the heart of it. Look, this is a pretty straightforward, very fluffy slowburn fic, with a great premise. No, the plot is not the most surprising, but if you understand the words above you probably would have predicted that anyway. And yet I found myself absolutely captivated and finished the whole thing im two days. It also will probably be my new comfort story whenever I feel down, not something a lot of books have managed. Just do yourself a favour, brew your favourite tea, grab the coziest blanket you own, listen to this magnificent tale and feel much better than you have before.

    Heartwarming

    I absolutely loved it! TJ Klunes best work so far (I only know the ones available on audible, so there might be one not yet an audiobook). Quirky, funny and happy. At times it is a bit cheesy, but you know, sometimes that is exactly right.

    A total gem!

    The story is absolutely wonderful and delightful.
    It took me a bit to get used to the narrator but he did a great job of bringing life and character to each person in the story.
    Definitely recommend listening or reading this book!

    Eher ein Jugendbuch

    4,5 Sterne

    Im Großen und Ganzen harmonisch und rund, aber ich fühle mich nicht als hauptsächliche Zielgruppe angesprochen, es ist eher ein Jugendbuch (so ca. ab 12 Jahren).
    Hörbuch war sehr angenehm zu hören.

    Leider hat Audible dieses Hörbuch auch in zwei Teile geteilt und den zweiten als erstes angezeigt, wodurch ich zuerst mit dem zweiten Teil begonnen hatte und das leider erst nach zwei Kapiteln bemerkte. Da hätte man im Intro drauf hinweisen können.

    Nice ideas but...

    Nice ideas but foreseeable story, lacking depth.
    The kids were fun and could be extended upon. Main character... Uninspired?

    Truely enjoyable!

    A heartwaming story about being different, part coming of age story, part coming out story. Quite suitable for young adults - but a good fantasy story for all ages.

    absolutely beautiful

    A truly heartwarming story with lovable characters and a profound meaning.
    The whole story feels like a long, warm hug.

    A magical experience different from what I expected, but perfect all the same. Will definitely listen to this again ;)

    I love this book

    Such a beautiful heartwarming story! I already listened to the audio book 5 times and it still makes me smile. Daniel Henning does a great job as narrator.
