Before I burn my copy of Jaws for kindling to prepare a lovely batch of s s for my children on this last week of summer before school begins I will pause briefly here to give you my reviewJaws the book inspired Jaws the movie which inspired my wicked decades long crush on Roy Scheider I was convinced we d be married someday The movie also terrorized millions of viewers and inspired fear of the ocean and the unnecessary killings of no one will ever know exactly how many sharksThe author himself in an updated Introduction from 2005 a year before his death explains that I could never write Jaws today I could never demonize an animal especially not an animal that is much older and much successful in its habitat than man is Apparently he was so disheartened by the unfortunate outcome of his novel the unnecessary killings part he devoted the later part of his life to marine conservation writing I d feel like an ingrate if I didn t give something back So he redeemed himself Felt guilty rather than cocky a feeling he must have been somewhat familiar with given all of his slips when he mentions his Harvard education and his extensive yachting in prior interviews and he sought to remedy his inaccurate portrayal of the Great white sharkBut personally I don t fault him for using his imagination to write a fantastical fictional story That s what writers do That s their jobI fault him for how damn lousy his story isLet s start here if you made two sock puppets and put them on your hands and then had your two hands communicate with each other using the same weird voice for each puppet then you would have accurately summed up the dialogue in this storyI honestly haven t come across dialogue this brutal this unbelievable since Modoc The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived and I still suffer PTSD from that novel Also the characters ARE sock puppets Stinky sock puppets with button eyes and sweat stains that can not express themselves or feel or grow Frankly they are not much than a pile of lintAnd when one character Ellen Brody finally breaks away from the pack of sock puppets and seems as though she might become three dimensional she ends up in a scene where she whispers to a man that she is trying to seduce that her two sexual fantasies are get ready ladies one to be a prostitute so she can have multiple partners and two to be raped by a stranger because she s pretty sure she d have an orgasm if her life was threatened and she was taken against her willMr Benchley I know you are dead and I hope you re resting in peace but I CRY FOUL SIR I CRY FOUL Ain t no woman no where no how unless she s been abused or had some type of psychological troubles has THESE FANTASIES SIR I do believe these are YOUR FANTASIES not hers especially since you started chapter 2 with a patrolman reading a detective novel where the heroine is about to be raped by a motorcycle club and he is practically licking his lipsWhat was wrong with you Mr BenchleyAlso enough with the obsession with a man s height a man s weight and the size of his genitalia Gag me with a harpoon alreadyI found myself just about shouting WHERE S THE DAMN SHARK WHERE S THE DAMN SHARK Could somebody CUE THE SHARKThree stars for the shark
