A Peter Benchley Classic!

While looking for a book to spark my daughter's interest in reading, I chose "Shark Life" because she and I love watching "Shark Week" together every summer.
Getting her to sit down and read it proved to be a little difficult until I told her, "Well, since you don't want to read it now, I'll just read it before you." Needless to say I wasn't let down at the least! Throughout the book Mr. Benchley educates his readers about various creatures that live in the sea, sharks being his main topic. He also includes true stories about his enounters with sharks. Anyway, I couldn't put the book down until I'd completed it.
Seeing my interest in this book drove my daughter to pick the book up and read it. Throughout the book she'd read portions of it, or an entire chapter, and then stop and look at me with her eyes wide open and say, "Wow mom, did this stuff really happen?"
I fully recommend this book for children who haven't found the fondness of reading, as well as those who love reading about mysterous creatures of the sea.

    Cool book!

    The great Peter Benchley writes a nonfiction book about sharks and life under the sea. Entertaining and educational. And remember, he wrote Jaws. This man knows sharks. -Michael

    Ok book

    For me a great book includes. A easy to follow story. A good plot and setting. And a great storyline that keeps you wondering whats next. This book had a relativly good story and easy to follow setting. The characters were easy to remember. But the story line was too predictable. The book was dissapointing towards the end it just sagged off. I woulndnt reccoment this book.
