Synopses & Reviews
Originally written by M. Night Shyamalan as a bedtime story for his own children, the story of Lady in the Water
is an imaginative reading experience that inspires readers to observe the world around them and consider their purpose on earth. Like all of Shyamalan's work, this story offers a dark mystery with surprising twists, a touch of magic, and a powerful message at the end.
This book stands completely on its own as a unique reading experience and is intended to complement the film, rather than recreate it. While the myth of the "lady in the water" forms the basis for the plot of the film, the film characters and setting are not featured in the book. Those who both read the book and see the film will have a deeper, richer experience of Night's story.
Lady in the Water
, written by M. Night Shyamalan and illustrated by Crash McCreery, will coincide with the release of Warner Bros. Pictures's Lady in the Water
, starring Paul Giamatti (Cinderella Man
) and Bryce Dallas Howard (The Village
), July 2006.
