An impulse buy, and this time it was personal

As if 1987's Jaws: The Revenge wasn't awesome enough - with a great white following a Bahamas-bound plane o' Brodys for shark vengeance - did you know there was a freaking book?

Yes, Hank Searls - noted author of Jaws 2 - returned to the shark-muncher genre to pen what's surely a riveting page turner, based on Michael de Guzman's amazing screenplay. You know, Michael de Guzman, the guy who wrote all those classics you've definitely heard of.

And how Mr. Searls turned a zippy 89-minute nail-biter into a 313-page obvious classic - well, that's the mark of a grade-A novelist. Can't wait.

Some people get high and watch 2001; tonight, I'm gonna get drunk as shit and read Jaws: The Revenge.
