Generally speaking, yes it is, but the movie took the action storyline from the book and left all else behind. I just prefer the movie over the book this time. A classic. I generally dislike reading a book after I have seen the movie. In this case, it was enjoyable. I appreciated the image I had of the movie characters and setting as I read the book.
I also appreciated that the story had an added element of tension and drama that I won't reveal be careful reading other reviews, some discuss this element openly. That added element has been criticized by some reviewers, but I felt it gave the book another dimension versus the movie, and provides an additional layer of human drama that enhanced my enjoyment of the story.
It would be nice to see a movie remake that was more true to the book, a la the TV version of The Shining. Some reviewers a have criticized Benchley's writing abilities, but I found the book to be compelling and well-written. Time well spent, and long overdue. Paperback Verified Purchase. I first read this in my senior year of high school in just a month or two before the movie was released. Something possessed me to read it again recently. It's definitely a potboiler. In some ways it is more suspenseful than the movie, but it also veers off into a series of on-shore subplots--more meandering sexual escapades and mobsters pressuring local smarmy business types that seemed to have infused a lot of the novels of that period.
I like the novel best when the author focuses on the ocean, on the shark, on the chase and on the motivations of the those who pursue the shark--there seems to be plenty of drama in that and in the killings that lead up to it without all the other filler, but maybe that's just me.
In a way, it's just a rather pedestrian reworking of Moby Dick and the ending--at least Quint's demise is an obvious homage to that novel. Plot synopsis: A malevolent force must be stopped. We can't understand it, but it must die. This was a fantastic book that still frightens me after reading it 2 years ago. The ending haunts me still, nothing like what you'd expect.
Clearly you saw the movie before you read the book, I just have a hunch, you're going to hate Matt Hooper Richard Dreyfuss' character in the book, which is why I gave this book 4 stars, I loved the character in the movie. Is this review based off emotion? Maybe a little, whatever!
Read this book! Shut up!
