Okay, I have to admit that I am probably never going to really truly read this book.

I am just writing because I wanted to bitch about how bad the movie was.

The MOM/wife from the first two movies kills the shark when it jumps out of the water and she rams it with the front of her SAILBOAT ! HA HA HA HA !

Oh, and the best part...the shark lets out a loud ROAR like a lion when it leaps up !!!! Ha friggin' HA !

Good points about the movie? Actually it had very clear, very frightening underwater fo...more

Yes the movie is very bad, However this book isn't a bad read at all. Okay it won't win any awards but still it's a lot more fun than the movie. Searls must of read the screen play and thought how can I make this more interesting or at least less awful. He does it by adding subplots and back stories. Including Vodoo and a spy story which were missing from the film. So if you find a copy it's worth a read even just to wipe the memory of the dire film.
Unfortunately, this was a snooze-fest just like the movie. The plot was all over the place. There were way too many story lines and characters and the characters lacked depth. It didn't hold my attention and it took me forever to read simply because it was so boring.
Hank Searls is a great writer. To write a book that is based on a very bad movie, that is well plotted, filled with great characters, and makes sense where the movie becomes ridiculous, speaks volumes of Searls' talent.

Better than the movie, in that it actually attempts to give a reason why a shark would follow a family from the North Atlantic to the South. Also has a more plausible ending.
Worth reading. Oddly enough, better than the movie.
