  • Lieblingsleseplatz

    Elisa ist stumm und putzt in einem geheimen US–Militärlabor. Dort entdeckt sie ein Wasserwesen, das dort gefangen gehalten wird. Nun ist es ja in den 60ern so, dass kaum jemand einer Frau Gehör schenkt – schon gar keiner stummen Frau… aber der Wassermann schon. Er „hört“ auf Elisas Kommunikationsversuche und lernt von ihr die Gebärdensprache. Eine zunächst zarte Freundschaft entwickelt sich. Doch schon bald muss sich Elisa entscheiden, was sie bereit ist für diese Freundschaft aufs Spiel zu setz ...more

    Described as one half of a “bold two-tiered release”, The Shape of Water is the companion novel to the Guillermo del Toro film of the same name. But what exactly does this mean? Curiosity piqued, I decided to do some digging around, and found out that the idea for a story about a mute woman falling in love with an imprisoned river monster actually came to author Daniel Kraus when he was a teenager. In the years that follow

    4.25 Sterne ⭐😄

    Das Buch (und auch der Film) sind ein wahres Erlebnis und haben beide eine ganz eigene Athmosphäre. Ich hatte das Gefühl, in eine komplett andere Welt einzutauchen 👌

    Mein absolutes Highlight waren die liebevoll gestalteten Nebencharaktere Giles und Zelda, die Elisa immer zur Seite standen ❤

    Solita favoletta che prevede il “cattivissimo” (sempre uguale a se stesso e irriducibile nel percorrere la strada sbagliata), la “bella” (ama tutti gli essere diversi, deboli o altrimenti indifesi), la “bestia” (ha qualche difettuccio, ma nell’insieme possiede l’animo più nobile dell’universo) e, naturalmente, i comprimari di diverso genere che aiutano gli eroi nel loro epico cammino.

    Il finale avrei dovuto immaginarmelo, dato che la mia maestra di prima elementare me l’ha insegnato: i pesci sono

    This was a beautifully told story about so many individuals that just didn’t fit into the time or place they were born into and how each touched the others life. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The prose is beautiful and it helped me connect to each of the characters in a different way.

    It makes me want to protect Elisa, our mute heroine that finds little ways to defy authority and be the woman she is. She is a good friend to those she cares for and so easy to love in he

    There’s a mirror here in the bedroom, too, but she chooses not to look at it, just in case her hunch is true and she’s invisible.


    Then there is Giles a man later in years who was born into a time where his sexual preference is deemed deviant and it has cost him so much be he remains true to the man he is. I loved him and I really wanted to find a nice man to set him up with. Of everyone in the story he deserved a happy ending too.

    This is, in short, the magic of art. To concede the possibility of being captured in this way is to actively collaborate with the artist. By God, Giles thinks, it’s true: They are not so different from each other. Giles might still, under the right light, bathed in the right water, be beautiful, too.


    Lainie made me so grateful that I was not a woman in that time. She did her duty and married someone to keep house for and bare children. Someone, who would make all the decisions as she cleaned and toiled. But what happens when he leaves for 18 months and she made all the decisions and felt the control and freedom of running her own life. How is she supposed to go back to being just a Mrs. Strickland and not Elaine anymore? How do you go back to only crawling after learning to walk?

    Inside these boxes are seventeen months of a different life. One that had knocked her off the well-trod path she’d been on since she was a little girl: dating, marriage, children, homemaking. Pulling items from those boxes—it’s like ripping organs from that other version of herself, that woman of ambition and energy and promise. The whole thing is silly, she knows that. She’ll get to it. She will.


    Even the scientist that would normally be the bad guy in a book like this is someone I wished had a different life with more chances. He was a man caught between impossible choices but I liked how he saw not only our fish man but people in general.

    “The most intelligent of creatures,” he offers softly, “often make the fewest sounds.”


    And Strickland. Watching him decay into the worst version of himself a small step at a time was just horrifying. Knowing his thought processes and why he made certain choices too was as awful as it was insightful. I HATED HIM as soon as he said Fanciful fables don’t deserve to live. but then he got so much worse and by the end he felt like true evil.

    The Dovonian (fish guy) is fantastic. At first when I heard there was going to be some boom-chicka-bow-wow between him and Elisa I was a little leery of that. It’s all well and good in shapeshifter novels and PNR but I wasn’t convinced that it was going to work for me. Surprisingly I’m totally okay with fishman love. It was actually a bit beautiful how they communicated and after the ending it completely felt right for them to have that moment. I adored getting a few PoVs from the Devonian to really understand his thinking patterns and such. It humanized him as more than a creature and made the story that much more special.

    This is a fantastic story of hope, doing the right thing and being okay with being different. It showed how each of us might feel alone, but we are connected in so many little ways to so many people that you are never truly alone.

    Audio Note: This is one of my absolute favorite audio narrations of the year. Jenna Lamia was spectacular in her narrative performance. I loved her performance of this and will look for other books narrated by her. ...more

    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.

    My second movie-to-book-adaptation. Very satisfactory read (both). Why am I surprised that both (movies) were made by the same guy!

    I vote for more such movie-to-book things! There are so many that I would love to read as a story. If all the powers that be is/are listening i.e.
