The Pisces Reviews

  • Emily

    This book is insane, gleefully and wholeheartedly insane. The basic plot summary is this: after the breakup of her long-term relationship, Lucy spends a summer in Venice Beach and falls in love with a merman. They have a ton of merman sex, described in realistic and detailed prose. (This is not a traditional romance novel; there is no fade to black, there is no coy allusion.) Simultaneously, Lucy is finishing her thesis on Sappho and taking care of her sister's dog. That's it. That's the whole p ...more

  • Jesica DeHart

    A brutally vulnerable and honest novel that easily elicits gasps and groans- the good kind. One of the saltiest stories of love, self acceptance and mythical lore.

  • Paul "Axl" Askew

    This is an exceptional book, and for me it is in so all the right ways.

    A funny, sad, thoughtful look at love and desire in their various aspects and extremities.

    I found it to be a phenomenal read.

    This will stay with me and I very much look forward to reading more by Melissa Broder.

  • Samantha

    Sometimes a book comes along that you know you'll love and you do love it that much and more. Ever since August 11, 2017 when Hogarth Books posted about their upcoming release The Pisces on their Instagram, I was looking forward to this novel. I also became obsessed with Melissa Broder's wonderful twitter accounts over the past two months, so my expectations were high. And The Pisces truly delivered! It's definitely my favorite novel of 2018. It's that winning blend of sexiness and literariness ...more

    Viciously realistic and fantastic at the same time. The thought patterns exemplified here are so so so attuned to depression that it's terrifyingly wonderful.

  • Navessa



    This is…not an easy book to read, or review, for that matter. I think readers will be really divided over it. It’s one of those that you’re either going to love, or fucking hate.

    Right up front you need to know that while this book is marketed as a romance, it doesn’t read like one. This is more like women’s fiction, where the majority of the story is dominated by the female lead and her anxiety and obsessions. The merman sex doesn’t come along until a good ways in, and even then, for me, their r

    Awesome.*

    *To a somewhat narrow group of people with a certain type of nihilistic humor, especially those who have, historically, had a penchant for oscillating between romantic flights of fancy and fickleness, but have been working on getting better, and who also happen to not be offended by some pretty coarse scenes, sexual and otherwise. Those who don't like this book will, oh boy, really not like it. To those who do? I see you.

  • Ova Incekaraoglu

    A novel that could to be sad and hilarious at the same time. I would never have imagined I'd find a book disturbing but will still will be able to love it.

    We follow the story of Lucy, who loses her long-term boyfriend over an angry blurt-out confession and moves away to California to be a temporary dog-sitter to her sister. Aiming to spend a few months there she tries pulling herself together by hooking up with strangers, joins a group therapy with other 'emotionally broken' women, and meets a
