Il romanzo che ha ispirato il film vincitore del Leone d'oro e di 4 premi Oscar.
Una storia d'amore tormentata e struggente.
Baltimora, 1962. Al Centro di Ricerca Aerospaziale di Occam è stata appena consegnata la «risorsa» più delicata e preziosa che abbia mai ricevuto: un uomo anfibio, catturato in Amazzonia. Il suo arrivo segna anche l'inizio di un commovente rapporto tra la singolare creatura ed Elisa, una donna muta che lavora al centro come addetta alle pulizie e usa il linguaggio dei segni per comunicare.
Immaginazione, paura e romanticismo si mescolano in una storia d'amore avvincente, arricchita dalle illustrazioni di James Jean e destinata a conquistare lettori e spettatori. Una storia unica, creata e interpretata da due artisti capaci di farci sognare in ugual misura con un libro e con un film, con le parole e con le immagini.

"We did this to it. We dragged it up here. We tortured it. What's next? What species do we wipe out next? Is it us? I hope it is. We deserve it." Now...I went into this knowing that it would be pretty odd. All I'd heard about this book was that it involves a woman who falls in love with an amphibio
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 has multiple POV's Leggi tutto
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 an average of 2.4 pages per chapte Leggi tutto
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 waves in the ocean, Leggi tutto
