“An aquarium without an octopus, is like plum pudding without plums”. Montgomery’s prose has compelling narratives that hook you instantly, like the time an octopus grabbed hold of her wrists and almost pulled her in the tank. She weaves in informative passages while simultaneously breaking negative stereotypes surrounding the famed invertebrates. Her adventure towards knowledge, and the friendships she cultivates with these smart, individualized creatures, are both intriguing and heartwarming. It sucked me in! (pun intended) [Nicole]
