    1. “Man should be better than monsters.”“Ah, but who are the monsters?”I have always had a soft spot for misunderstood monsters who are unreasonably feared. The key work here is “unreasonably”. When their life or the life of their beloved is threatened of course they are allowed to become vicious.And it’s not just me. I am sure that most of you know that there is a huge number of fans that enjoy PNR books i.e. paranormal romance, monsters’ erotica, erotic horror, fantasy books for y [...]

    2. Poetic, beautiful, far more emotional than the movie. Some scenes were different than the movie but still, this is one of the few times where both book and movie have amazed me equally!

    3. What a weird, magical, romantic movie! The colors (green and red) reminded me a lot of the french movie Amélie, 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 like him an Amphibian, and her voice would return to her that didn't happen though, I guess my imagination is even wilder than the movie.

    4. 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 this because of what I write: this is a must-see!

    5. 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; Kraus’ writing style shines in Strickland as well as the creature itself. I am in love.

    6. Shape of Water, writer, director Guillermo del ToroThis 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 Seth Meyers joked at the Golden Globe Awards Ceremony.The Shape of Water had been nominated for Golden Globes as well.It has won in the category of Best Director for the outstanding Guillermo del Toro.This film has elements of S [...]

    7. Unable to perceive the shape of you. I find you all around me. Your presence fills my eyes with your love, It humbles my head, for you are everywhereسناریو(کتاب) رو از پرداختِ کلّی فیلم بیشتر دوست داشتم. جفتشون کششی که انتظار می‌رفت رو ایجاد نکردند البته ولی برایندشون راضی‌کننده بود. اسمِ این‌جور محتواها رو گذاشتم «زیباهای آنی»، چون تاثیر [...]

    8. "La forma dell'acqua" è una storia piena di emozioni, piena di così tanta magia e verità che mi ha spiazzata pagina dopo pagina.È il secondo libro di Del toro e Kraus che leggo e ormai è chiaro che siano un'accoppiata vincente. Con una trama cosi bella, mi sarei accontentata di qualsiasi stile di scrittura. Invece anche quello non è stato per niente deludente.Devo essere sincera: ho trovato le prime quaranta pagine un po' confuse e per un attimo ho creduto che il libro non mi sarebbe piaci [...]

    9. Update: I just watched the movie and it's SO BEAUTIFUL- the cinematography, the music, the romancejust breathtaking. To imagine a connection of any sorts between a mute woman and an odd creature; a ridiculous thought but nonetheless materialising and palpable in the story. Definitely an Oscar-worthy movie!!I am so going to read the book as well to savour this beautiful plot again!!<3

    10. Um, the movie has come first? So, is the book actually going to be any good? I hope lots of my GR friends 'guinea-pig' it for me and write careful reviews!

    11. HIGHLY recommended if you’ve seen the movie (and recommended if you haven’t). It’s beautiful, flows so well, and gives so much more depth to the characters and Elisa’s interactions with The Asset that it’s given me a great appreciation for the movie.Because I’ll be honest, the movie actually left me unsatisfied and a little discontent. Yes, it’s beautiful, I love the story, love the visuals, but I wanted more out of Elisa’s interactions with TA. I thought what we got were sweet ( [...]

    12. "January 29, 2018 –50.0% "1:19:23This whole work is going to change you, not the best ever written but still it's a magical story."January 29, 2018 – ShelvedJanuary 29, 2018 – Started Reading"P.S. - The story is goes in one direction but sometimes it fails to fit the image.

    13. I LOVED THE MOVIE AND I LOVED THIS BOOK.Their romance was so different , so pure.Although the creature had only 3 pages as his POV I loved reading it.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.

    14. Man, was this a read. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but now have to immediately see now that I’ve finished the novel. I can’t wait to see how the author’s vision comes to life cinematically. I found it to be a very poignant, unique, and profound - yet still slightly twisted - fairy tale for our times.

    15. "Incapaz de percibir tu forma,Te encuentro a mi alrededor.Tu presencia llena mis ojos con tu amor,Pone humilde mi corazón,Porque estás en todas partes"Desde que por esas cosas de la vida descubrí el póster de La Forma del Agua en , me volví obsesiva por esta película porque la sentía como algo original, hermoso y atrevido. Me vi, creo, todas las entrevistas hechas a Guillermo del Toro, así como a los actores y los Q&A que se hicieron posterior al Festival de Cine de Venecia, dónde e [...]

    16. 4.5 starsI loved the movie, and this book enhances the story. It adds to some of the scenes, and gives us a deeper understanding of the characters’ thoughts and behavior. This book contains a tender love story, action, chases, emotional passages, unwavering friendship, horror and brutality, inter species sex, Soviet spies, prejudice , bravery, loneliness, and a most wicked villain. Everything I could wish for in a book. Guillermo del Toro is a master of fantasy within a coherent modern fable f [...]

    17. When I was reading this I kept having flashbacks to "Finding Nemo" I honsetly had to put the book down a few times because it was such a close resemblance. Scary! What the author seems to be trying to accomplish is a sequel to "Finding Nemo', and "Finding Dory" If that's the case I would've suggested "Grinding Nemo".

    18. I am excited to see the movie for this. The story goes pretty much how you expect it to for a movie adaptation.

    19. I hate this book. I hate it because I find books that I love this much so rarely that it throws me into an unsatisfied, depressive slump for days/weeks/months afterwards. There's a necessary balance between magic or fantasy with reality and metaphor that makes for stunning stories that leave me with this melancholy, and this story hit that balance flawlessly. I haven't seen the movie yet, so I actually have no idea how this measures up to it, but it seems like the two mediums were pretty intrica [...]

    20. Zitate:"Ihre Beziehung gleicht einer Art Erpressung, und Strickland will sie endlich beenden." Seite 11"Die Füße sind das, was einen mit dem Boden verbindet, und wenn man arm ist, dann gehört einem nichts von dem, worauf man steht." Seite 20"Dabei hält sie die Tüte wie eine Trophäe, ihre Trophäe dafür, dass sie dieser atemberaubenden Vernichtung in die Augen gesehen und überlebt hat. Sie ist außer sich, atemlos, beinahe weinend, beinahe lachend." Seite 109Meinung:USA in den 60ern. Ein [...]

    21. Full Review HERE: bibliophileeuphoria.wordpressThis was a raw and beautiful story about love, acceptance, and what makes us different. This is my type of movie/book. The type that makes you FEEl like REALLY FEEL. And, after I was done watching, I was left with a cracked heart. To be able to watch this movie or read the book you need an open mind and heart. This is not a story made for everyone for many reasons.The romance is the main part of the story. The love between a janitor (Eliza) and a f [...]

    22. Due to Guillermo del Toro's gift for stunning visuals, The Shape of Water as a screenplay somewhat falls flat. So much of what del Toro does with this story is through images that can't be recreated on the page. So elements like the actual creature, or fantasy sequences throughout the film are sort of lifeless on the page. Especially when it comes to the creature, the screenplay doesn't give him the spark that makes the audience care for him. On the page, he's more of an E.T.-type character, rat [...]

    23. Kam zařadit Tvář vody? Nejspíše do temné fantasy romance. Atmosféra je neuvěřitelná, postupně vyvýjející se vztah mezi postavami a navíc tajemný božský tvor vytrhnutý z hloubi džungle.Velmi se mi líbí práce s postavami, jejich vykreslení i drobné výstřednosti, které jim pomáhají roztříštit všednost. Jak se jejich životy změní, když se střetnou s mýtickým stvořením?V neposlední řadě určitě stojí za zmínku tempo knihy, které nás strhne do víru [...]

    24. Much Better than the movie in my opinion. The book gives the inside voice to Elisa and the God "the assist" and all the characters in the book. I felt I understood what was going on much better by reading the book, and I felt more connected to the characters by reading the book. I give the book 4 stars because I liked the book; however, I am unsure if I will read this book again.

    25. "Trouble your heart no more"I missed the movie when it came out but I'm glad because it gave me the chance to read the book first. Pretty straightforward plot. I enjoyed reading it nevertheless.
