Truth be told, I always found Jaws to be overhyped. Well the film at least. Maybe because I’ve only watched it as a child and couldn’t appreciate it for it’s true glory. Granted I watched the film last night after I finished reading the book and found myself scrolling through social media constantly. That said, I absolutely enjoyed the novel. It kept me engaged throughout its entirety. And I found the character dynamics to be richer and more engaging.
