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.… (lisätietoja)

This book achieves the curious feat of being both interesting and monotonous simultaneously. The main character fully embodies the dull, overweight, emotionally disconnected office worker—overweight being almost a personality trait. In contrast, the other characters are vibrant and fun. The relationships and final chapters culminate in a beautiful and fulfilling ending. ( )

I liked this. A very wholesome story, though one that I really had to work to leave behind my real world perspective as a social worker and former caseworker (though not in child welfare).

This book has a lot in it about “objectivity” and I sort of wish it were explored a little more. Good boundaries really are important in this line of work, but good boundaries doesn’t translate to cold, compassionless work by itself. But, I realize this book wasn’t written for that. I can solemnly swear that none of my casenotes read like Mr. Baker’s reports.

I found a few characters pretty convenient (Helen), but enjoyed basically everyone. I kept thinking about the X-Men comics and the Mutant Registration Act while reading, another story metaphoric to LGBTQ+ experience. ( )

Why is it important to step outside your comfort zone once in awhile? Because you might find a gem where you least expect it!

I have seen more positive reviews on this book than I have probably ever seen about another. I looked it up on Goodreads and thought…hmmm…I don’t know about that. So I waited and then looked for it at the library and it wasn’t available so I waited some more. Then when I had some money to spend at B&N, I thought, I’ll grab it and then can give it away if I don’t like it. Positive thinking right there, huh?!?

So I loved it! It took me way out of my normal brain and allowed my unimaginative brain to come out and play. It was so well done; the descriptive writing was top notch! The characters were endearing and the story line was a beautiful message.

So, even if it may not seem your style, I highly recommend it!! ( )

Fear of the unknown is almost always an irrational one, and it must be faced directly in order to grow in any way. This is the lesson the book's main character, Linus Baker, learns when the government operation he works for (DICOMY, the Department in Charge of Magical Youth) plucks him from his boring, safe, desk job in the city and thrusts him into an island orphanage overlooking a cerulean sea. Baker is assigned to a month-long investigation on the island, where he must determine the future of the orphanage itself, head-mastered by the mysterious Arthur Parnassus.

What starts as Linus's standard DICOMY investigation, governed strictly by its Rules & Regulations Handbook, evolves into a gentle unravelling of the illusion Linus has lived under all his life. Forced to always remain impartial, "unbiased", and disconnected from the people he works with—those he investigates—life at the island and with the children has a way of distinguishing truth from lie, courage from fear, and family from foe. By the end of the book, Linus Baker becomes the sweet, gentle hero we all wish to see in the world.

Aside from some questions I have about some of the backstory's logic, and some minor gripes about being a little too cliché at times, the story is a very sweet and enjoyable one for what it is. Narrator Daniel Henning offered a well-done performance, and I will definitely be interested to read (or listen to) more of Klune's work. ( )

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.
lisäsi Dariah | muokkaaLibrary Journal
 
A beautiful little gem of both irony and, yes, kindness.
lisäsi Dariah | muokkaaFantasy & 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.
lisäsi Dariah | muokkaaShelf 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 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)
