Shark Life: True Stories About Sharks & the Sea by Peter Benchley

I havent read Jaws, and I dont have plans to in any foreseeable future. I love the movie so much that it seems impossible that I would enjoy the book near half as much. However, after reading this book, Im more inclined to add it to my TBR. Peter Benchley writes with enthusiasm and wonder about marine life. Obviously this is post-Jaws, and there is a heavy dose of guilt present in many of the ways the facts are presented and argued. I think that enhances the reading experience. Benchley seems to feel somewhat responsible for the negative views on sharks and earnestly lays out an effective argument for respect and preservation of the marine world. There are lots of interesting tidbits about different types of sharks and other ocean-based animals. But the thing that makes this book truly unique and charming are the stories Benchley tells of his own experiences with these creatures, and his love of the sea.
