The Shape of Water Reviews
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, coming and going, each time leaving something, but also taking something with them when they leave.
The book is split into four parts. Parts one and two are mostly storytelling, atmosphere building, a ...more
Ok lasst mich klarstellen: auch wenn ich laut goodreads fast einen Monat gebraucht habe um dieses Buch zu beenden stimmt das so nicht ganz. Denn eigentlich hab ich das Buch an 2 Nachmittagen beendet, nur lagen diese Nachmittage leider recht weit auseinander 🤷🏼♀
Der Grund ist, dass das Buch meiner Meinung nach einfach nichts für nebenbei ist. Die Thematik und der Schreibstil erfordern einfach die volle Aufmerksamkeit und Konzentration des Lesers.
Der Schreibstil ist zwar nicht einfach, aber so geni ...more
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 and is about an amphibious man-like creature that the army found in the Amazon and immediately captured to study it in the lab. It sounds about right.As we learned in E.T., they want dissect the crap ...more
Husband: You're already finished that?
Husband: Didn't you start it today?
Husband: Still! Was there fish sex?
Me: Yeah. (gentle readers it was not graphic)
Me: It's about social outcasts! About seeing someone as they are, in a way that no one else sees them!
Husband: Yeah but still.
Me: But he's a man!
Me: He's a man, babe.
Buddy read with the wonderful weekly UF Wednesday group over at BB&B.
In its many forms and shapes.
The dedication of this book sums up so perfectly just what this book is about.
It’s about being different, struggling in the box the world tries to force you into because it can’t understand and accept your difference and finally breaking free to fight for those you love.
I absolutely loved the beautiful writing, the amazing characters, their depth of feelings whether it was from...more

I still haven't watch the movie though I can assure you, I will but forgive me, my friends but I don't think I can digest the scene with a cat involvement. So, I guess I'll just skip that part.
First off, The Shape of Water strikes me as a pure romance novel at first but boy was I wrong, it has a mixed of action. Truth be told, I was kinda disappointed. Haha. ...more
هذا العمل مخصص لمن يحبون لإبقاء على روح الحلم في الواقع
لمن يعيشون مغمضين عيونهم نصف إغماضة
للمنبوذين الذين اختاروا العزلة أو فرضت عليهم
وهو أيضا لكل شخص لم يتعلم بعد أن ينظر داخل أرواح الناس ويفتش عن خباياهم
ليتعلم كيف يكون الحب
كلنا قرأنا الحكايات القديمة المعروفة
عن ازميرالدا و كوازيمودو
أو الجميلة والوحش
وبينما تنتهي الحكاية الأولى نهاية مأساوية
ويعود الوحش في الثانية ليصبح أميرا وسيما
ينتصر دي تورو للحلم
إليزا فتاة عادية.. بكماء أيضا
لا مبهرة الجمال كأميرات الحكايات الخرافية
ولا تعيش مظلومة مقهورة ...more
A Brilliant Novelizations...
For a Magical Movie..
Of Hope and Acceptance and Love
