It was just another day in the life of a small Atlantic resort until the terror from the deep came to prey on unwary holiday makers. The first sign of trouble a warning of what was to come took the form of a young woman's body, or what was left of it, washed up on the long, white stretch of beach. A summer of terror has begun. Peter Benchley's JAWS first appeared in 1974. It has sold over twenty million copies around the world, creating a legend that refuses to die it's never safe to go back in the water.

So I couldn’t i...

4.0 Jaws
I didn't like anyone in this book. Usually if I don't like the characters, I don't like the book. It didn't work out that way this time because the fallout was very interesting. I don't know how similar it is to the movie, but I'm thinking of checking it out.
