C+ (Okay).

A bureaucrat spends a month investigating a magical orphanage. For a book filled with love and whimsy, it's weird how much I didn't get into it. It has its moments; feelings are eventually had. But mostly I just found it frustrating. Its world doesn't make sense except as a misguided allegory. And the big problems (like, racism, for instance) are solved through bad heartfelt speeches. Thanks for solving racism, I guess?

This is a very sweet story about a guy that lives his life from day to day, going to his boring job and living in his boring house without actually living. He gets assigned on a case that brings him to a house full of peculiar children.

I really loved this story. It was heartwarming and emotional. It definitely has a strong message that different doesn't mean bad or wrong.

The only thing that personally put me a bit off was this almost fairy tale like quality that made the world divided into bleak city and sunny island house. Some characters became almost caricatures. ( )

Cozy, cozy, cozy! The book is packed with good feelings - a delightful found family of magical kids, a wonderful house that brings out the protagonist's true self, and a lovely gay romance that feels entirely natural. The ending feels cathartic and heartwarming at the same time; it's exactly what the story needed. Love this book and eagerly awaiting the sequel. ( )

Hacia mucho que un libro no me hacia llorar de lo bonito que es.

Leer sobre Linus y el orfanato de Arthur Parnasus ha sido como un abrazo calentito en medio del invierno. No queria dejar este hogar.

Tiene sus cosas el libro? Claramente. Pero si me puede emocionar de esta manera, se merece las 5 estrellas. ( )

Really a feel good fantasy about differences, and giving children safe loving places to develop. Found myself smiling and sometimes eyerolling when it became repetive in ideas. But the setting and the characters are so well done!
Just today though I'm finding troubling references to the authors inspiration for this story. That it was inspired by Canada's Sixties Scoop. Where they took Native children and put them into orphanages hoping to get them adopted. Klune attempted to make a beautiful fantasy out of that nightmare. I wish I hadn't read that because I loved the book. ( )

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.

A beautiful little gem of both irony and, yes, kindness.

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.

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?"
