“A tightly written, tautly paced study of terror [that] makes us tingle.”The Washington Post
 
“Powerful . . . [Benchley’s] story grabs you at once.”
The New York Times Book Review
 
“Relentless terror . . . You’d better steel yourself for this one. It isn’t a tale for the faint of heart.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer
 
“Pure engrossment from the very opening . . . a fine story told with style, class, and a splendid feeling for suspense.”
Chicago Sun-Times

5.0 out of 5 stars BookTrail it to the movies!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on June 1, 2020
Oh I've watched Jaws the movie so many times I've lost count. I thought I'd read the book to see how it had been adapted and to see what was different, better etc. Well the ending is certainly different! There's so much extra detail of course in the book and more description but it was clear to see just how clever the film was for its time.

The island is described so well and in such lucious detail that I am half tempted to live by the sea despite the risk of sharks. The nature of the first shark attack in the book is shocking as are the ones which follow and the book really does keep up an excellent sense of fear and foreboding. Having read this so long after the film though, I swear I could hear that der dum der dum every time the shark was about to appear.

I really recommend reading the book even if you think you know the story very well. There's a lot more to the story than just the shark here such as more drama when they have to close the beaches and...wait for it...the issue with Brody's wife! Ah I'm going to look her a little differently now.

That shark steals the show though and I'm going to take this movie/book/booktrail thing one step further now and read it next time I go to the beach...
