4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By lefty33 on July 11, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is my favorite fiction book by Peter Benchley. Perhaps because I love oceans and giant squid. The story follows a line similar to Jaws--boats mysteriously disappearing, strange signs left on remains, and the suspense of what is waiting in the deep. I especially enjoyed the occasional chapter written from the beast's perspective.

Also in tradition with Benchley's other works, the book promoted protecting the environment and not wasting the sea's resources. I appreciate that Benchley encourages such practices through his writing.
