Plot : It is 1962, and Elisa Esposito—mute her whole life, orphaned as a child—is struggling with her humdrum existence as a janitor working the graveyard shift at Baltimore’s Occam Aerospace Research Center. Were it not for Zelda, a protective coworker, and Giles, her loving neighbor, she doesn’t know how she’d make it through the day.Then, one fateful night, she sees something she was never meant to see, the Center’s most sensitive asset ever: an amphibious man, captured in the Amazon, to be studied for Cold War advancements. The creature is terrifying but also magnificent, capable of language and of understanding emotions…and Elisa can’t keep away. Using sign language, the two learn to communicate. Soon, affection turns into love, and the creature becomes Elisa’s sole reason to live. But outside forces are pressing in. Richard Strickland, the obsessed soldier who tracked the asset through the Amazon, wants nothing more than to dissect it before the Russians get a chance to steal it. Elisa has no choice but to risk everything to save her beloved. With the help of Zelda and Giles, Elisa hatches a plan to break out the creature. But Strickland is on to them. And the Russians are, indeed, coming.

“Man should be better than monsters.”
“Ah, but who are the monsters?”

I felt so many emotions when I finished with the book and I was unable to form any coherent thought. 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 as a part of this vast nature of the Earth . I have no words but loads of emotions for this book .

To love,
In its many forms and shapes.

I guess my imagination is even wilder than the movie and i could not stop think about the Fantasy Romance created by the author.


Try to imagine it. Eons of loneliness, and then one day, your ellipses peaks toward that of another planet and there is a gasp of nearness. Wouldn’t you try to make the most of it? Wouldn’t you, too, combust and flare and explode if you had to?

It’s been a long time since I’ve experienced a book like this. The fantasy aspect drew me in, but the souls of the people telling the story kept me reading. I loved the characters, the storyline and everything about this book . I go with 5 Stars for this beautiful masterpiece.

  1. Such a generous rating for the book! I really liked the movie, although I must admit the last quarter got a little too weird for me. However from the quotes you showed in this review it seems like a very beautifully written novel, and I’m such a sucker for beautiful writing ❤ Lovely review!
