    This movie was STUNNING. I can see clearly the three places the producers could have changed the scene to make the rating PG13 instead of R... and I'm so glad they didn't. The little bit of grit adds an edginess that made the narrative real and emotionally gripping. I'm not just saying...

    ?The most intelligent of creatures often make the fewest sounds.? This was such a lovely surprise & a super-fast read, since I was already familiar with the romantic absurdity of it all. Also, it was far more emotional and more suspenseful than the film, if you can believe...

    Husband: You're already finished that? Me: Yup. Husband: Didn't you start it today? Me: Yesterday. Husband: Still! Was there fish sex? Me: Yeah. (gentle readers it was not graphic) Husband: SERIOUSLY?!?! Me: It's about social outcasts! About seeing someone as they ...

    I won?t soon forget this incredible book. From everything I had read about it, I thought it would stray from the movie more significantly, but the ways it did were the ways in which I needed more from the story. The chapters from the creatures perspective had me gasping for breath; K...

    What a weird, magical, romantic movie! The colors (green and red) reminded me a lot of the french movie Amlie, but it's much less innocent. I thought that Eliza Esposito would be a Mexican who met the monster as a kid, and he marked her to know her later, and by the end she will be l...

    Shape of Water, writer, director Guillermo del Toro This is a highly acclaimed film. It has the biggest number of nominations for the upcoming BAFTA Awards. And the British are serious about almost everything, including motion pictures. It is a strange narrative, about which Se...

    So, this is a bit of a cheat - I was going to buy the book, then realized it was $20+, and decided to watch the movie instead. Really liked the movie. Lots of subtext, made you think. Great artistic ambiance. The "hug" scene was especially rivetting. Definitely deserved the Oscars. ...

    Reviewed by: Rabid Reads THE SHAPE OF WATER is a strange book. For a variety of reasons. 1. Dual film/book release, which, to my knowledge, has never been done before. 2. It?s only 312 pages long, but it has a cumulative 130 chapters (split into four sections). That?s ...

    Buddy read with the Wednesday Group of BB&B I really didn't expect to like this book. I struggled a lot in the beginning to keep going because I couldn't connect with the Elise. The writing also didn't help as it's too slow paced and somehow languid like the current of the Amazo...

    The book is awesome, as long as you remind yourself to stay in the moment. The fantasy. The UNreality. Because, if not, you will be thinking weird shit, like me. See, I'm a weird shit thinker. I'll let you know where my twisted mind went in just a second. First, about the book. It h...

    4.25 Sterne ?? Das Buch (und auch der Film) sind ein wahres Erlebnis und haben beide eine ganz eigene Athmosphre. Ich hatte das Gefhl, in eine komplett andere Welt einzutauchen ? Mein absolutes Highlight waren die liebevoll gestalteten Nebencharaktere Giles und Zelda, die...

    At first few pages I was doubtful, feeling that this might be a plain, self aware novelization of a powerfully beautiful film. But I was wrong, the book filled each of the character?s lives with details and more. So what we end up with is the full panorama shot of the way that all o...

    I was beyond excited for this. Ever since I saw the trailer. I haven?t seen the film which only made me more curious for it. Pan?s Labrynth and Pacific Rim are two of my all-time favorite films. I love them with all my heart and I?ve lost count of the number of times I?ve seen ...

    This is a very strange book. I wasn?t the biggest fan of the writing style but I liked the story. Many of the characters served less as characters in the story but more of world building to show how people were treated in the 1960s. I have not seen the movie yet but I would like to. ...

    Frankly . I wouldn't have read this book if it wasn't based on the movie . I haven't yet watched it . But it has won the Oscar for best picture and is directed by one of my favorite directors . The Shape Of Water is a romance drama story with fantastical elements set in the backdr...
