Synopsis

A special edition of Jaws by Peter Benchley reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan's 70th anniversary.



It was just another day in the life of a small Atlantic resort until the terror from the deep came to prey on unwary holiday makers. The first sign of trouble - a warning of what was to come - took the form of a young woman's body, or what was left of it, washed up on the long, white stretch of beach . . . A summer of terror had begun.



Peter Benchley's Jaws first appeared in 1974. It has sold over twenty million copies around the world, creating a legend that refuses to die - it's never safe to go back in the water . . .

Staff Choice

I love the film Jaws.  It's in my top one films of all time, so I approached the book with some trepidation but I couldn't resist the lure of this absolutely stunning edition and I'm so glad I took the bait.  The book is so much darker - the characters, their motivations and their relationships are far richer and more complex. You even get an insight into the mind of "the fish."  It's not better than the film, nor is it worse.  But it is different and it's a cracking read!
