Oh that's right my dear geeks, we are going OLD SCHOOL to start off the summer. The GGBC July read is "Jaws" by Peter Benchley. It is the quintessential summer read, and it reminds us all of the first time we heard that music. Did you know that the theme from Jaws was John Williams' first Oscar for best original score? It is that brilliant. As we did with Lord of the Rings, if you don't have time to read/listen to the audio book, please feel free to watch the movie. It will remind you of how amazing you thought it was as a kid, and I want you to enjoy our favorite predatory girl any way you can.
If this story isn't your thing, I recommend continuing on with Scott Westerfeld's "Leviathan" series, we'll be chatting about the first book starting on the last Saturday of June. I wonder what the Darwinists could have made with our friend Jaws here? Whatever it is, it would certainly not be safe to go in the water.
Our visit to Amity Island starts July 1st. You bring the food, I'll bring the shark cage.
