Staff Reviews


Stephen's Favorite Beach Read:

"For my money, the beach read of all beach reads is Peter Benchley’s Jaws. The movie? Everyone’s seen it; it was the first-ever summer movie blockbuster! Most folks don’t realize it was based on a novel, and a best-selling one at that. And yes, as has been said a million times before, the book is better than the movie. This time, though, the book is better because of the movie. You’ll know right away each character and setting, you’ll hear the famous John Williams score in the background. 

But, very quickly, you’ll see a depth to the story that the movie didn’t have time to explore. Did you know that Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss’ character) wasn’t exactly a stranger to Amity? Did you pick up in the movie the tension between native islanders and vacationers? (There are only two blink-and-you’ll-miss-them scenes.) The book delves into both topics, without losing one iota of the momentum of the plot."

Description


With the 1974 publication of the novel Jaws and the release a year later of the film based on the book, an American cultural phenomenon was born. Today, the remarkable bestseller by Peter Benchley still towers as a thrilling classic of suspense, drama, and the eternal conflicts of man against nature ... and man against himself. As the movie continues to broadcast all over the world, entire generations may know the Jaws story only through its cinematic rendition. Those unfamiliar with the literary forerunner are in for a wonderful surprise, for the novel contains many twists of plot and character that were omitted in the film. Peter Benchley's Jaws is an extraordinary experience of its own, a masterpiece as mesmerizing today as it was in 1974, when it first took us into the watery world of a creature designed by nature to kill ... and into the terror it brings from the silent darkness of the deep.
