Perfect and super interesting. It is a recount of shark attack stories, instead of an in-depht look at shark behaviour from a scientific p.o.v. It left me wanting to read more and more. If you expect this to make you reasons to feel less scared of sharks, look elsewhere.

I like how the book includes thinhs from back then!! Its fun to hear about attacks from back then, but then I feel bad for them, some die because the shark litteraly ate there heart, and I just feel bad for the survivors too because I would hate to have a missing leg or arm, they might be wondering how do I get on with life? Well thats atleast what I would think every second of my life!!! And to bellow: Because if what you said Im afraid to look at all of those comments!! And people, if you fell like you need to swear, just do it at home! No one will look at your post!

I am truely petrified of sharks ever since i saw the movie Soul Surfer. Wow what a hard time in her life to get through. My heart reaches out to Bethany and her family. I just love the faith her family had and respect them so much.
