    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...

    The Shape Of Water was a strange book I got from the library on Audible. It started out fascinating but very gritty and rough. Then it varied between long boring periods and interesting scenes. I just couldn't hardly stand the slow bits at all! I really loved the premise of the strange...

    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 ...

    "She holds him, he holds her, they hold each other, and all is dark, all is light, all is ugliness, all is beauty, all is pain, all is grief, all is never, all is forever." A moving, mesmerizing, uplifting, and beautifully-written narrative, The Shape of Water plunges us into O...

    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...

    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...

    When I first saw the previews for The Shape of Water I remember thinking that it not only looked different, but it looked weird. Weird is my thing. I love weird. I embrace it. Well, when the book showed up on my GR Newsfeed I about shat myself out of pure excitement. Not only is it a b...

    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...

    The Shape Of Water was a strange book I got from the library on Audible. It started out fascinating but very gritty and rough. Then it varied between long boring periods and interesting scenes. I just couldn't hardly stand the slow bits at all! I really loved the premise of the strange...

    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...
