Description

*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.

Praise for The Shape of Water audiobook:

"This is a beautifully written tale filled with lush descriptions and poetic language, perfect for savoring on audio. Listeners new to the story will be enchanted, but even those who've seen the movie will be drawn into this first-rate adaptation of the poignant tale." -- Booklist, starred review

"Jenna Lamia's luminous narration of a love like no other is profoundly affecting and transformative." -- AudioFile Magazine
