it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** This is a classic. The film too. How scary was this book when it came out. The Deep too although not really a scary book more an adventure. Jaws though...Wow! I think Peter Benchley was not happy with the legacy the film left behind. The Great White was already hunted severely and after the award winning film was released I think it more than trebled. It goes against the respect Peter Benchley has for the oceans and its inhabitants. Now the shark is a protected species in most parts of the world and about time too. Anyhow the film is great but the book is better. In the book the scientist Hooper dies.
The cage comes back up with a leg in it.🐯👍

J.J. My 6 year old nephew loves this movie. He even got the Lego Jaws because of it. He knows everything what's going to happen next in the movie.
