A mesmerizing, allegorical, and beautifully wrought first novel about one boy's fascination with the sea during the summer that will change his life. One moonlit night, thirteen-year-old Miles O'Malley slips out of his house, packs up his kayak and goes exploring on the flats of Puget Sound. But what begins as an ordinary hunt for starfish, snails, and clams is soon transformed by an astonishing sight: a beached giant squid. As the first person to ever see a giant squid alive, the speed-reading Rachel Carson-obsessed insomniac instantly becomes a local curiosity. When he later finds a rare deepwater fish in the tidal waters by his home, and saves a dog from drowning, he is hailed as a prophet. The media hovers and everyone wants to hear what Miles has to say. But Miles is really just a teenager on the verge of growing up, infatuated with the girl next door, worried that his bickering parents will divorce, and fearful that everything, even the bay he loves, is shifting away from him. While the sea continues to offer up discoveries from its mysterious depths, Miles struggles to deal with the difficulties that attend the equally mysterious process of growing up. In this mesmerizing, beautifully wrought first novel, we witness the dramatic sea change for both Miles and the coastline that he adores over the course of a summer - one that will culminate with the highest tide in fifty years.… (mais)

This book was such a sweet break from all the heavy topics surrounding me (Racism, Covid-19, parents with Dementia) and I loved it. Miles is a young boy who absolutely lives for his daily ocean shoreline discoveries. That and his crush on his next door neighbor. And his best friend, the elderly housebound woman. He is awkward and utterly brilliant and I loved the mix of wry humor, human connections, and the beauty of tidal marshes and its strange inhabitants. As Miles makes astonishing discovery after discovery, the local news station takes note and he soon becomes a celebrity, whether he wants to be or not. It didn't hurt that the book takes place in the state next door to me, Washington. ( )

A bit of a disappointment after Border Songs, but taking into account that this was Jim Lynch’s first novel it’s understandable that the writing wasn’t as polished. Also, I’m not a big fan of coming of age novels and this one threw in all the standards, especially the adolescent male fixation on sex trope. But the descriptions of the marine life and ecosystem of Skookumchuck Bay, where this is set, were fascinating and I got thoroughly caught up in the friendship between Miles and Florence and her prediction about the highest tide. It was easy to feel the author’s deep attachment to the northwest coastline and its sea life through Miles, the teen Rachel Carson fan whose quotes from the famous environmentalist led me to add The Sea Around Us to my TBR list.

(Didn't these reviews used to ask: what did you learn from this book? But almost answered that question. So here's the new one, which I noticed today: What did you think? Here's what I thunk.)

After reading this delightful book, I want to walk along the shore regularly. I am nearly resolved to do so. By paying attention to the shore and what we see, we might feel as if we are witnessing a moment that matters. (pg.14, top line.) There are some utterly beautiful passages; on page 44 one begins:"The bay was as calm as a waiting bath". (Google that and up pops the paragraph.) I learned from this book to pay better attention to the shore - and to teenagers - and to the elderly.

> Par Nathalie Collard (LaPresse.ca) : Les grandes marées par Jim Lynch (Gallmeister)
« Je comparerais ce roman, que j’ai lu avec beaucoup de plaisir, à un film de Steven Spielberg. C’est l’histoire d’un ado de 13 ans qui vit sur la côte Ouest, dans l’État de Washington. Il est passionné de vie marine et la nuit, il va marcher à marée basse. Il fait toutes sortes de découvertes – dont un poulpe géant – qui lui apportent une certaine notoriété. Tout le monde commence à s’intéresser à lui. C’est aussi le regard d’un garçon sur les adultes qui l’entourent et qu’il trouve un peu fous. C’est léger, bien écrit et assez drôle. »

I'm not really sure why I wanted to read this. Oh well. ( )

I learned early on that if you tell people what you see at low tide they'll think you're exaggerating or lying when you're actually just explaining strange and wonderful things as clearly as you can.
