    One thought on “Seal-Woman”

    1. A strange little book -- too short for a full-length novel & too long for a novella.This is the story of a man who falls in love with a girl who prefers to live among the wilds of Ireland's coast. Through a quick setup of death & honorable masculine promises in the midst of WW2, our narrator (who remains nameless) agrees to locate & care for the sister of his Irish shipmate, who is a decendent of the legendary O'Malley clan. Of course his sister is also a decendent of the O'Malleysor [...]

    2. This book is so bizarre, it is hysterical. Lockley was a brilliant naturalist but this exploration of fiction leaves something to be desired. I repeatedly thought, no, he's not really going to yes, yes, he is. The whole thing is made more disturbing by the amount of scientific detail Lockley brings. We start in the midst of WWII. The narrator and another man are tasked with searching quiet coves in Ireland via a small sail boat for signs of the enemy, when they become obsessed with a young wild [...]

    3. In 7th grade I remember my English teacher rewarding me for getting student of the month by letting me choose a new book to keep from her shelf. I took this one and read it over and over. It was a little PG-13, considering that I was a very late blooming and unworldly 13 year old and the year was 1981. Still a favorite after all these years. I so wanted to be Shian

    4. Here's an incredible and engaging story set off the Irish coast during the early post-Second World War era. It involves an encounter a former naval officer has with a "woman of the sea", a strikingly beautiful young woman more at home in the depths of the sea than on land. A relationship blossoms between them. But, alas, irreconcilable differences arise, ensuring a host of challenges to the relationship that lead to a tragic outcome.

    5. Am fascinated by the amount of novels and short stories dealing with the myth of "seal people" - humans who live among the seals, eventually becoming more and more like them. found this for 50p at a book fair. quite good to read, but emotionally barren.

    6. Somewhat suitable for selkie lists, this novel explores the myth from the point of view of a man who falls in love with a young woman (erroneously) convinced she is a selkie princess. In fact, there are no true supernatural elements in the book.

    7. A tragic book about an Irish girl who lives with seals, inspired by the author's own travels to Ireland and the selkie legends told to him by locals. Yay! :)~Bri
