REVIEW

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Benchley’s novel, while better known as the source material for Steven Spielberg’s classic movie, has earned its own stripes as a small gem of suspense fiction. With another summer fast approaching, audio listeners may be interested in revisiting the town of Amity, Long Island, and getting back in the water. Erik Steele, a theater and film actor, chomps into Benchley’s raw prose with appetite, enjoying every bite of gore and social observation. Making ample use of well-placed pauses and silences, Steele amplifies not only the suspense, but Benchley’s surprisingly well-honed characterizations. The experience, of course, is markedly different from Spielberg’s film, offering shocks less visceral and more contemplative. A Random House hardcover. (Apr.)

“A tightly written, tautly paced study of terror… that still makes us tingle.” –The Washington Post
