    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/04/28/... Described as one half of a ?bold two-tiered release?, The Shape of Water is the companion novel to the Guillermo del Toro film of the same name. But what exactly does this mean? Curiosity piqued, I decide...

    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...

    Apr 10, 2018
    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 ...

    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 1/2 stars! This book was beautiful. I can't think of any other way to describe it. The story, the characters, the words themselves. It was all beautiful. The best way I can think of to describe the way this book made me feel is I'm a shoreline and the words in this book are the w...

    Wow, this was really well done. I wasn't really sure what to expect, having never read anything by Guillermo del Toro. I have always enjoyed his dark cinematic story telling and his unique way of portraying intrinsic lessons and observations about life. I enjoyed the movie that is kin ...

    My second movie-to-book-adaptation. Very satisfactory read (both). Why am I surprised that both (movies) were made by the same guy! I vote for more such movie-to-book things! There are so many that I would love to read as a story. If all the powers that be is/are listening i.e. ...

    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 ...

    The Shape of Water is undoubtedly an odd story. I have yet to see the film, but the book really has a captivating sense of subtle creepiness as well as deep nostalgia at the same time. Often that which isn't understood is feared and hated, but for Elisa, who herself feels different due...
