His younger brother, Nat Benchley , is a writer and actor. After graduating from college in , Benchley travelled around the world for a year. The experience was told in his first book, a travel memoir titled Time and a Ticket, published by Houghton Mifflin in Following his return to America, Benchley spent six months reserve duty in the Marine Corps , and then became a reporter for The Washington Post.

The great fish sinks down out of sight, dragging Quint's still entangled body behind it. The lone survivor of the ordeal, Brody paddles back to shore on his makeshift float.

Development[ edit ] Peter Benchley had a long time fascination with sharks, which he frequently encountered while fishing with his father Nathaniel in Nantucket.

In , Benchley worked as a freelance writer struggling to support his wife and children. Congdon did not find Benchley's proposals for non-fiction interesting, but instead favored his idea for a novel about a shark terrorizing a beach resort.

The hastily written pages were met with derision by Congdon, who did not like Benchley's attempt at making the book comedic. The manuscript took a year and a half to complete.

Congdon did not feel that there was "any place for this wholesome marital sex in this kind of book". After various revisions and rewrites, alongside sporadic payments of the advance, Benchley delivered his final draft in January The story is very similar to the story in Benchley's book with a vacation beach town on the Atlantic coast being haunted by a killer shark and people eventually being commissioned to hunt down and kill the shark or sharks responsible.

Benchley had many working titles during development, many of which he calls "pretentious", such as The Stillness in the Water and Leviathan Rising. Benchley regarded other ideas, such as The Jaws of Death and The Jaws of Leviathan, as "melodramatic, weird or pretentious". The writer discussed the problem with editor Tom Congdon at a restaurant in New York: We cannot agree on a word that we like, let alone a title that we like.

In fact, the only word that even means anything, that even says anything, is "jaws". Call the book Jaws.

He said "What does it mean? Congdon and Gotfryd eventually settled on printing a typographical jacket, but that was subsequently discarded once Bantam editor Oscar Dystel noted the title Jaws was so vague "it could have been a title about dentistry". The subsequent drawing became the eventual hardcover art, with a shark head rising towards a swimming woman. Following Bacon's concept, Kastel illustrated his favorite part of the novel, the opening where the shark attacks Chrissie.

For research, Kastel went to the American Museum of Natural History , and took advantage of the Great White exhibits being closed for cleaning to photograph the models. The photographs then provided reference for a "ferocious-looking shark that was still realistic.

Following a photoshoot for Good Housekeeping , Kastel requested the model he was photographing to lie on a stool in the approximate position of a front crawl. It was a first novel, and nobody reads first novels. It was a first novel about a fish, so who cares? Tom Congdon, however, sensed that the novel had prospects and had it sent out to The Book of the Month Club and paperback houses.

The Book of the Month Club made it an "A book", qualifying it for its main selection, then Reader's Digest also selected it. The publication date was moved back to allow a carefully orchestrated release.

It was released first in hardcover in February , [1] then in the book clubs, followed by a national campaign for the paperback release. According to John Baxter 's biography of Steven Spielberg , the novel's first entry on California 's best-seller list was caused by Spielberg and producers Richard D.

Zanuck and David Brown , who were on pre-production for the Jaws film, buying a hundred copies of the novel each, most of which were sent to "opinion-makers and members of the chattering class".

However, sales were good nationwide without engineering. The paperback version was even more successful, topping book charts worldwide, [20] and by the time the film adaptation debuted in June the novel had sold 5.

The most common criticism focused on the human characters. Michael A. Rogers of Rolling Stone declared that "None of the humans are particularly likable or interesting" and confessed the shark was his favorite character "and one suspects Benchley's also.

It's boring, pointless, listless; if there's a trite turn to make, Jaws will make that turn. John Spurling of the New Statesman asserted that while the "characterisation of the humans is fairly rudimentary", the shark "is done with exhilarating and alarming skill, and every scene in which it appears is imagined at a special pitch of intensity.

Jones described Jaws as "much more than a gripping fish story.

It is a tightly written, tautly paced study," which "forged and touched a metaphor that still makes us tingle whenever we enter the water. He became an ardent ocean conservationist.

All the while, Quint taunts Hooper as a rich college boy when Hooper refuses to shoot at beer cans with them. Brody and Hooper also argue, as Brody's suspicions about Hooper's possible affair with Ellen grow stronger; at one point, Brody unsuccessfully attempts to strangle Hooper.

Their first two days at sea are unproductive, although they do come in contact with the shark by the end of the second day. Upon seeing it for the first time, Hooper estimates the animal must be at least twenty feet long, and is visibly excited and in awe at the size of it. Larry Vaughan arrives at the Brody house before Brody returns home and informs Ellen that he and his wife are leaving Amity. Before he leaves, he tells Ellen that he always thought they would have made a great couple.

After he leaves, Ellen reflects that her life with Brody is much more fulfilling than any life she might have had with Vaughan, and feels somewhat guilty for her prior thoughts of missing the life she had before marrying Brody.

After seeing the size of the shark, on the third day Hooper wants to bring along a shark-proof cage , to help take photos of it and then to use it to try to kill it with a bang stick. Initially Quint refuses to bring the cage on board, even after Hooper's offer of a hundred dollars, considering it a suicidal idea, but he relents after Hooper and Brody get into an big argument. Later that day, after several unsuccessful attempts by Quint to harpoon the shark, Hooper goes underwater in the shark cage.

However, the shark attacks the cage, something Hooper did not believe it would do, and, after ramming the bars apart, kills and eats Hooper. Brody informs Quint that the town can no longer afford to pay him to hunt the shark, but Quint no longer cares about the money and resolves to continue until he has killed it.

When they return to sea the following day, the shark starts ramming the boat. Quint is able to harpoon it several times. The shark leaps out of the water and onto the stern of the Orca, ripping a huge hole in the aft section and causing the boat to start sinking.

Quint plunges another harpoon into the shark's belly, but as it falls back into the water, his foot gets entangled in the rope, and he is dragged underwater to his death. Brody, now floating on a seat cushion, spots the shark swimming towards him and prepares for his death. However, just as the shark gets within a few feet of him, it succumbs to its many wounds, rolls over in the water and dies before it can kill Brody.

The great fish sinks down out of sight, dragging Quint's still entangled body behind it. The lone survivor of the ordeal, Brody paddles back to shore on his makeshift float.
