wow just wow. way way different from the movie.
Brilliant book and perfectly narrated.
Yes, this is a product of its time, but if I'd had any idea how offensive it would be, and how little it would mirror the movie, I wouldn't have bothered. While the descriptions of the shark were initially promising and pulled me in, the racist, sexist, and homophobic commentary and essence of the main storyline made it hard to finish this book. Spielberg worked wonders with these characters to make them likable on screen and the story engaging enough to be worth telling. The suspense and horror of the film simply isn't here
As Jaws is my favorite movie of all time I figured I’d give this a listen to. I’d honestly give it a 3.5 or a 4 out of 5. The differences between this and the movie aren’t crazy but I can understand why some things were taken out to make the movie more enjoyable. I found it boring at times or uninteresting, still would recommend.
Love the movie so I was excited for the audiobook, unfortunately for me I was a little disappointed. Even though I enjoyed the differences from the book to the movie, I feel like the shark is, underwhelming. The narrator is very good too and does a great job with the voices.
It’s simply a classic!
Awesome from first word and beyond it the greatest book I've read
I had been watching the movie since I was a child and given my obsession with sharks I finally read (or listened rather) the book. I thoroughly enjoyed it....worlds better than the movie. I'm so glad I used a credit on it! The narrator was great. The voices used for various characters were clear and concise. His voice is very pleasant to listen to. I especially loved the voice the narrator used for Harry Meadows. I highly recommend!
