Just read: Jaws by Peter Benchley, the novel that would become the classic Steven Spielberg summer horror blockbuster. Weirdly, I’ve had this paperback since the movie first came out in 1975, and it’s stayed with me all these years, but I hadn’t taken the time to read it until now. So how does it compare to the movie? The book is well written, what they call a “page turner,” as it borrows a significant amount of its plot from Ibsen’s political drama Enemy Of The People in a way that can still seem gripping and easy to relate to. On the downside, Benchley has a stale, melodramatic subplot about Police Chief Brody’s wife having an affair with Hooper, which Spielberg wisely jettisoned from the movie. But the book does come to life in the final chapters as the men sail out hunting for the great white shark, although his ending differs what the one in the film. Overall, a good horror novel, but I have to say, the movie is infinitely superior artistically. #jaws #jawsmovie #jawsbook #peterbenchley #stevenspielberg #stevenspielbergfilm #sharks #sharkbites #horror #horrornovel #horrorfiction

"LO SQUALO" (1975 ) 🎬🎥 Epico film thriller di Steven Spielberg, tratto dall' omonimo romanzo di Peter Benchley. Nelle acque di un' isola del New England, durante il periodo estivo, un temibile squalo tigre aggredisce i turisti. Il sindaco del villaggio balneare non è intenzionato a chiudere le spiagge, per non far fallire il settore turistico stagionale; allora il comandante della Polizia Municipale, con l' aiuto di un biologo marino e un abile pescatore, decide di imbarcarsi in pieno oceano per dare la caccia alla feroce creatura #losqualo #jaws #cinema #film #movie #thriller #actor #royscheider #robertshaw #richarddreyfuss #stevenspielberg #johnwilliams #peterbenchley #squalo #squalotigre #oceanoatlantico #newengland

110/50 - Jaws by Peter Benchley 📚 . I had such high hopes for this because I mean it's Jaws! But honestly the fact that it had sharks in it was the only reason I gave it 2 stars 😂 I didn't like it at all, the story was so long and drawn out for what the actual plot was and there was so many parts I just had no idea why they were even in there - including a random talk about having a rape fantasy? Like I'm sorry WHAT? So many people love this book and I feel like such an odd one out. I also felt super sorry for the shark because I mean let's be honest, sharks just wanna chill in the ocean so maybe we should just leave them alone 🤷‍♀️ definitely not one I'd read again. .

. 大白鯊 《大白鯊》的故事大略如此:一個叫艾米帝島(虛構)的暑期度假小鎮近海出現一頭巨大的食人大白鯊,多名遊客命喪其口,當地警長在一名海洋生物學家和一位職業鯊魚捕手的幫助之下,決定獵殺這條鯊魚。 原著作者彼得・本奇利與知名導演史蒂芬史匹伯合作,於1975年發行同名電影,取得巨大的成功,與《星際大戰》一樣,成為好萊塢商業電影的大黑馬。 --- 彼得・本奇利原是一名獨立記者,一條大白鯊的新聞將本利奇的注意力帶往了紐約長島的小鎮蒙托克:1964年,一隻足有2公噸大白鯊在當地捕獲。 蒙托克是當時的世界捕鯊中心,繁榮的碼頭彷彿一座巨大的捕鯊博物館。這裡全掛著巨大的鯊魚屍體和肢解下的鯊魚頭、魚鰭和下頜骨,有各式各樣的捕魚工具和得意洋洋的漁民,商店和餐廳內貼滿了展示賞金獵人功績的照片......這一切點燃了本利奇的創作激情,並讓他在1971年完成了小說《大白鯊》。 --- 電影《大白鯊》就如此爆紅,這部電影也引起人們對鯊魚的極度恐慌。 沒想到在人生稍晚時期,本奇利為自己曾寫下鯊魚的聳動描述感到後悔。1980年代初,本奇利在哥斯大黎加沿海潛水,那時他看見了缺了背鰭的鯊魚屍體遍布海底;那些都是魚翅市場的犧牲者。 看著那些鯊魚,本奇利意識到大白鯊不適吃人怪物,而是與這些鯊魚一樣的受害者。 --- 這個駭人的發現使本奇利轉變成海洋保育擁護者與教育工作者。1995年,他曾在「海洋星球」的展覽中說道:「鯊魚不是我們的敵人,如果可以重來,我會把鯊魚寫為受害者。」 為了挽救這些海洋生物,本利奇把《大白鯊》中獲得的全數收益投入於鯊魚保育及公眾教育中。 隨著保育意識的提升,人們越來越認識到鯊魚並非人類的敵人。國際鯊魚襲擊檔案(International Shark Attack File )ˇ的紀錄中,美國2003-2008年間僅4人死於鯊魚襲擊,相較這個數目每天死於魚翅產業的鯊魚卻為25萬隻。 --- 2006年,在本奇利生命的最後一年,65歲的他接受了《倫敦每日快報》的採訪。「若當時我有現在的意識,我不會寫那本書。」並這樣說,「鯊魚並不會把人類當成襲擊目標,牠們也不記仇。」,同年2月這位《大白鯊》左者、海洋保育工作者死於肺部纖維化。 但他後半生所投身的鯊魚保護事業並沒有停止。本奇利的遺孀溫蒂·本利奇與環保工作者大衛·海維格聯合創立了「彼得・本奇利海洋獎」(Peter Benchley Ocean Awards )。此年度獎項以本利奇的名義,繼續支持著為海洋保護作出卓越貢獻的人們。 #淨灘少女 #can #ecofriendly #文藻 #wenzao #淨灘 #環保 #plasticfree #海洋 #愛地球 #沙灘 #girl #follow #like #followme #marinelife #大白鯊 #jaws #保育 #peterbenchley

“Jaws” by Peter Benchley. Great, well-written book! Classic story of man-eating shark around Amity Island and the police chief, a fishermen and a scientist go fishing. Great film! The classic line “You’re going to need a bigger boat” was ad-libbed by Roy Scheider! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📚🦈 #jaws #peterbenchley #shark #theorca #youregoingtoneedabiggerboat #classic #bookworm #booknerd #books #reading #ginasreadingroom #love #read #honestreview #review #bookaddict #bookbookbook #readersofinstagram

#jaws (1974 ) #peterbenchley The interesting contrast with the film is what #stevenspeilberg omitted from the source material. Spielberg was only really interested in cinema spectacle, the shocks which come at you every time regardless of multiple viewings. But Benchley had some interesting things to say about class distinctions. Most notably about the indigenous islanders of Amity, settlers who came later for business and of course, the tourists. This he explored mainly through Martin Brody, the police chief and Matt Hooper, the marine scientist and their relationship with Ellen (Brody's wife ). There is an illicit affair in the novel between Ellen and Matt that isn't even hinted at in the film. It's unusual that both the book and film can be so universally successful and have a completely different feel in tone and meaning. The book has sold over twenty million copies worldwide and the film is one of the most popular blockbusters ever produced.

"Nós vamos precisar de um barco maior." 🦈🎬 . . . . . Até agora sem acreditar que finalmente consegui realizar o sonho de ter esse livro em mãos! Considerado por muitos leitores dos livros da editora @darksidebooks como um dos livros mais raros até então lançados da editora, pelo fato do livro não estar sendo mais vendido pela editora até o momento. TUBARÃO é o clássico romance de Peter Benchley que deu origem ao primeiro blockbuster de Steven Spielberg. Mas, mesmo antes do sucesso na telona, o frenesi alimentar de 'Jaws' se transformou num fenômeno de vendas. O best-seller internacional foi o principal responsável em elevar a fera de barbatanas dorsais ao status de perfeita encarnação do mal. Se já existiu um bicho-papão na natureza, ele está dentro d’água. Ao completar 40 anos, TUBARÃO volta às praias brasileiras com aquele toque feroz que só a DarkSide® Books consegue dar. Em duas versões: Limited Edition (capa dura ) e Classic Edition, sendo a da foto a edição Limited Edition. Cada página virada é um ataque diferente! . . . . . 📷 (Reprodução Instagram / Divulgação ) #books #bookcollection #limitededition #cinema #amazing #jaws #dead #moments #1975 #film #filmcommunity #cinema #mycollection #collection #collector #darksidebooks #tubarao #peterbenchley #attack #rare #sea #danger #shark #area #director #stevenspielberg #mistery

The 2020 Flick or Treat October Horror Marathon 🎃 Review Number Two Peter Benchley’s The Beast (1996 ) Plot: After it’s food supply has run out, a giant squid starts to eat anybody who enters the waters of Grave’s Point. It’s up to a fisherman to stop it. My Opinion: I watched this with my Dad tonight. Peter Benchley’s “The Beast.” It’s an old TV movie from the author of “Jaws.” My Dad and I liked it. It’s a solid aquatic monster movie with a talented cast. William Peterson and the late great Larry Drake both deliver good performances and the creature effects are cool too. This movie is “Jaws” but with a giant squid. It’s a good 90s TV horror movie. Grade: B. #peterbenchleysthebeast #thebeast1996 #peterbenchley #horror #horrormovie #horrormovies #movie #movies #90shorror #90shorrormovies #moviemarathon #horrormoviemarathon #horrorclub

Just finished #Psycho by #RobertBloch , a proper #horror classic. Having now read it, I have a good idea for an essay about its iconic shower scene alongside #StephenKing 's #Misery and #PeterBenchley 's #Jaws called 'Showers, Sharks and Hobbling: The Iconic Scenes of Horror Book and Film.' It would be very clever and nerdy and have an audience of about three people.

1998. The Creature from Peter Benchley’s Creature⁣ ⁣ Here is one that I was just planning to skip. But to my great surprise, several people messaged me about it.⁣ So I, ever the crowdpleaser, decided to include it despite not liking it that much. I find the trope of wacky⁣ animal-human hybrids inherently silly. Maybe I can’t but associate it with Power Rangers. Slippery Shark anyone?⁣ ⁣ Also, I’ve never seen this tv mini-series. I’m pretty convinced I rather not go through it now. It is a 90s tv production of around 3 hours with a Syfy Original level plot that it takes way too seriously: they’ve created a murderous monster sharkman! Yeah, I rather just look up the few murky scenes in which the creature is.⁣ It was fun drawing this though, a break from all the tentacles I’ve been working on.

Tyrannosharkus Rex. A unholy mix between Great white Shark. Tyrannosaurus Rex and a Tiger shark. This was imspierd by art made by @joverine . I wanted it to feel like the ultimate underwater bioweapon. It can run, swim faster than a highspeed racing boat and is pretty nasty overall. Also i love sharks and why not pimp them up even more. #greatwhiteshark #tigershark #shark #jaws #sharkweek #mutantshark #prehistoricpredator #tyrannosaurus #t .rex #prehistoricshark #bioweapon #residentevil #artistsoninstagram #hybrid #hellraptordinosaurs #hellraptor #hellraptorstudios #chaoseffect #deepsea #deepbluesea #peterbenchley #maneater #depth #underwater #oceanlife #ocean #brucetheshark #megalodon

When on a beach holiday it is mandatory to take a photo of Jaws in the sand. Although I live on the Gold Coast we rarely go to the beach so today's road trip was to the Sunshine Coast. Yup, from one coast to another. #jaws #peterbenchley #bookstagram

"You're gonna need a bigger TV!". • Upgrade to 4K for the original and best of the series. I saw this with my old man back in '75. When that head floated out of the bottom of the boat I literally freaked out. Greatest thing I'd ever seen. Can't wait to watch it with so many extra goddamn pixels! Only regret is that they didn't opt for the original artwork. • Featured are all of the current Australian Blu-ray releases. • • #bluray #bluraycollector #bluraycollection #bluraymovies #horror #horrormovies #horrorcommunity #horrorcollection #horrorcollector #jaws #jaws4k #jaws2 #jaws3 #jawstherevenge #4kuhd #4k #peterbenchley #stevenspielberg #roysheider #richarddreyfuss #robertshaw

Happy 4th of July! Spielberg in the mouth of Jaws (1975 ). Mayor Vaughn: “August? Tomorrow is the 4th of July, and we are going to open for business. It's going to be our best summer in years. If you're so concerned about the beaches, you two, you do whatever you have to to keep them safe, but with you or without you, those beaches will be open for this weekend!” #4thofjuly2020 #jaws #jawsmovie #stevenspielberg #spielberg #greatwhiteshark #mayorvaughn #leefierro #peterbenchley #amityisland

I actually enjoyed this alot more than I thought I would! While it seemed more focused on local politics than a massive man-eating shark at times, I still had fun with it. Ellen Brody sucked in this novel as opposed to her character in the movie but, I'm alright with that.
