    Well, I finally decided to read the book after watching the movie a million times growing up And it s a summery read I quite enjoyed it I wasn t sure it was going to be good, but I was wrong and I just might read the other books Here s the thing, just don t go in the water when you know people have been killed by a shark What the hell is wrong with people I wish I could have watched the movie again so I could see how much was different in the book Some of it I don t think even happened in the mo [...]

    Excellent book.First of all Peter Benchley s 1974 novel Jaws is darker and complicated than Spielberg s film And it was a magnificent motion picture, a work of art with few peers and a production that garnered Spielberg his first high accolades Benchley s novel, as are most books, almost by artistic default, is complex, with characterizations that are developed and interconnected, with a group dynamic that is as interesting as the surface story about a man eating shark that eats a town.That wa [...]

    My spirit animal is the great white shark I ve loved them for as long as I can remember To most people, puppies are the epitome of cuteness To me, it s great white sharks How can you look at this face and not go aww Sharks are probably the most misunderstood species on Earth They do not need or deserve our fear, they need our love.Great whites don t have easy lives The youngsters are left to fend for themselves right after birth They are left to discover everything on their own No kisses, no cud [...]

    My friend Alex said try the book, and I said let me think about it, I made myself a good cup of coffee and decided why not And I said Alex if I get nightmares I am sending one your way WELL you are safe wink This movie is the reason or one of the reasons I think where sharks got their bad name fromI cannot recall the whole movie because I watched it years ago I do remember the movie was scary at that point of time, it kept me glued to my seat the sharks scared me, according to me a movie that yo [...]

    Before I burn my copy of Jaws for kindling, to prepare a lovely batch of s s for my children on this last week of summer before school begins, I will pause briefly here to give you my review.Jaws the book inspired Jaws the movie, which inspired my wicked, decades long crush on Roy Scheider I was convinced we d be married someday The movie also terrorized millions of viewers and inspired fear of the ocean and the unnecessary killings of no one will ever know exactly how many sharks.The author him [...]

    First I want to thank Steven Spielberg for ruining the fun with swimming in lakes as a child because of course there could be sharks in lakes Sweden Second, I want to thank him for letting Ellen Brody be a background character in the movie so the movie wasn t ruined by that F g bitch.Jaws is one of my favorite movies So it s kind of strange it has taken me this long to read the book I remember that my brother had the book and I was curious about it, but I just never read it I remember checking t [...]

    The best part about the book was the one time when the Great White Shark leaped from the ocean and shouted Don t Hate The Player, Hate The Game Okay, that might not have happened.Jaws tells the story of the people who live in Amity, a small seaside resort town which depends on summer tourists for its income The town got a comparatively peaceful community, helmed by a gregarious mayor, a working class police chief and a resourceful editor of the local newspaper The town is having a hard time, but [...]

    Who doesn t know the famous Spielberg movie with a shark as the big bad guy who wreaks terror on an entire town, with three men going on a mission to kill the shark before he kills even people Just one year before the release of the movie, Peter Benchley s novel Jaws was published which the movie was adapted from Personal confession here I never watched the movie, so there was nothing I could compare the events in the novel with I practically went into it blank apart from the knowledge of a sha [...]

    I was young in my teens and foolish enough to watch the movie based on this book while on vacation on an island You don t have to ask me if I skipped going to sea for few days

    3.5 starsJaws was such a pleasant surprise for me I always loved the movie, and the novel is so much than just your average monster book I was completely amazed by the characters depth, and how utterly unlikeable most of them are Ellen Brody is some sort of modern Emma Bovary, while Harper is a jackass Not to mention the mayor who got involved with the wrong kind of people And because of that, he is willing to let innocent people die for profit.I like the omniscient point of view This way we ge [...]

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2016 03 24 bA whole generation was scared off from swimming in the ocean by the Spielberg film based on this book Embarrassingly, I have to say my own reaction was even extreme It was the early 90s and I must have been about 7 when I watched Jaws for the first time on VHS, and for an entire week I refused baths because I was terrified little great whites were going to pour out of the faucets and eat my face I was an especially wimpy kid with an [...]

    Jaws or the fish as he prefers to be known is one big ass, mean motherfucking, rip toothed, man eating great white shark whose sole job is to harass the swimmers at Amity beach to the point where no one dare go in the water and the livelihood of everyone in the town is severely under threat So what makes him perfectly qualified for this role, well he s got big fucking teeth, swims like a torpedo and has developed a taste for reading swimmers, boats and fishermen Reading, Woah, autocorrect error [...]

    Jaws is the tale of a marriage on the edge of failure Chief Brody, head of the Amity police, is married to Ellen They ve three kids He s a native of the area one of the poor boys who spent his days on the beaches while the rich folks came down to vacation from the big cities She s from one of those big cities, from one of those rich families, and since she married Chief Brody she s been an outsider amongst the natives and outsider amongst the tourists She belongs nowhere and feels herself wastin [...]

    Reviewing a book that was made into a movie over 30 years ago and which almost everyone has seen already seems a little pointless On the other hand I don t need to post a spoiler alert If you are somehow unaware of the plot of Jaws, then it doesn t matter if I give it away, because I m sorry to be the one to tell you this you have Alzheimer s disease Yes, it s a shame There there But even if you already know exactly what is going to happen, this is still a thrilling, chilling read You should not [...]

    JAWSPeter Benchley writes a mediocre, or average at best, shark story that is fondly remembered by most thanks to Stephen Spielberg The book is okay, mostly sharky fun weighed down by drama at times, but it can t hold a candle to the greatest shark movie ever made.So Truth time As a small child, think four or five years old, I had a very real fear of being eaten by a shark We didn t live near water I was too small to swim and I felt totally safe in the tub No, these sharks were cartoon sharks wh [...]

    I remember reading this back in the mid 70s when the movie came out I have seen the movies several times since and had forgotten how different the book was from the movie Brody in the book still seems a bit like Roy Scheider The others except for Quint seem to be very different The shark is the main character in the film but in the book, it is the complex relationship between island lifer Brody, his former socialite wife, and a younger man named Hooper There are several underlying themes of rich [...]

    I get no pleasure from writing negative reviews I have no problem with others who rip books to shreds, but maybe because I m a teacher and see in an author a former child now working tirelessly to pursue a lifelong dream, I feel a little guilty criticizing others too harshly So please know that I dread saying this, butJAWS isn t a very good book I take that back it s a wildly uneven book Peter Benchley absolutely nailed the shark attack scenes I mean that sincerely The moments leading up to and [...]

    Jaws is my favorite movie of all time It s perfect Quite literally And while I was perfectly aware that it was based on Benchley s bestselling novel of the same name, I never brought myself around to reading it I think it was mostly because I was worried it might change my opinion of the movie, for better or worse But recently the novel kind of fell into my lap, and it being summer and all, I decided to give it a go Why not, right Having just finished it, I can honestly say this is one of those [...]

    I went to the Monterey Bay aquarium for a teachers symposium where they generously gave us a lot of their discarded educational materials and clearance items from the gift shop that hadn t been sold in a long time Among those items were stacks and stacks of Jaws They didn t care what we did with them so I took a whole stack and passed them out as prizes at a church social before I had read this book.What I learned from this book is to never pass out any book at a church social before reading it.

    Jaws is my favorite movie of all time I could not wait to crack open the book that started it all What got me really excited was the fact that the book is almost as well revered as the film Sadly, I cannot fathom how this book is considered the least bit good I ve read it twice The first time I was naive and just wanted a meat and potatoes shark attack book and was disappointed by the abundance of non shark goodness After a while I decided to read it again and with a open mind Well, I still hat [...]

  25. Paul

    Excellent read, very smooth and never lets up This would be a great book to read on the beach by the ocean I of course do not condone any killing of animals, and respect the place the great white shark lies on the endangered species list.

    There s nothing in the sea this fish would fear Other fish run from bigger things That s their instinct But this fish doesn t run from anything He doesn t fear I read Jaws when I was teenager, and of course I d already seen the movie countless times I remember finding it a dry, dull story that couldn t touch the movie Based on this year s re read, I still find the movie better, but the book has earned new brownie points When I was younger, some of the intricacies of the marriage subplot probably [...]

    Read this on holiday in Torquay in 1976 as an excited excitable 14 year old Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The problem with Peter Benchley s 1974 debut novel Jaws is that there s a film adaptation a troubled production that exploded into theaters a year later and changed the way Hollywood distributed films forever and it s one of the greatest films ever made, on par with Vertigo and Psycho for my money The source material, on the other hand, is not one of the greatest novels ever written It s not in the ballpark and isn t even the same sport In his 2005 introduction with this edition, Benchley sheepi [...]
