Jaws - Peter Benchley I really enjoyed the shark parts in this book. They were just as scary as the movie. Don't expect the book to be the same as the movie, though. The character's have different personalities and there is a romantic section in the book that isn't included in the movie. I can see why it was left out. I could tell certain bits were written by a male. All in all, I enjoyed Jaws, especially the first and third sections. I would have liked to have read more shark action, but on the whole, it was an enjoyable and thrilling read. I won't be getting in the water any time soon. :)
