Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
almost 4 stars
Quirky book for animal lovers. Ted has split with his partner and his dachshund Lily is his life. They talk about men. (Who would you choose of the Ryans , Gosling or Reynolds?) He talks with her about everything. One day he notices an octopus (tumor) on her head and has to come to terms with losing her. The dog, Lily, speaks her mind throughout the book (as does the octopus). The book is rooted in the California gay culture and revolves around the gay lifestyle in a manner that will be a first-time experience to many. Great humor in the book and nice imagery, but about the time Ted and Lily go on the boat trip, I got bored with it. Last chapter is very good. I listened to the audio version narrated by the actor, The audio version is as good as audio gets! Actor, Michael Urie, absolutely hit this out of the ballpark!!!, who did an excellent job. I will look for more audio books with him as narrator.
