The shape of water
*Winner of the 2018 Golden Globe Award for Best Director of a Motion Picture* *Winner of the 2018 Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director*
Visionary storyteller Guillermo del Toro and celebrated author Daniel Kraus combine their estimable talent in this haunting, heartbreaking audiobook.
The Shape of Water is set in Cold War-era Baltimore at the Occam Aerospace Research Center, which has recently received its most sensitive asset ever: an amphibious man captured in the Amazon. What unfolds is a stirring romance between the asset and one of the janitors on staff, a mute woman who uses sign language to communicate with the creature.
Developed from the ground up as a bold two-tiered release--one story interpreted by two artists in the independent mediums of literature and film-- The Shape of Water weaves together fantasy, horror, and romance to create a tale that is equally gripping on the big screen, and as an audio performance.
Prepare for an experience unlike anything you've ever heard or seen.
