    Just lately I have started to realise that I do not always care for magical realism, especially when it takes over what is otherwise a very enjoyable book Consequently when the Octopus of the title started to take over this book I started to enjoy it less.Anyway the book begins brilliantly and I enjoyed the little anecdotes about Lily as a pup and a...
