Love the movie so I was excited for the audiobook, unfortunately for me I was a little disappointed. Even though I enjoyed the differences from the book to the movie, I feel like the shark is, underwhelming. The narrator is very good too and does a great job with the voices.

I had been watching the movie since I was a child and given my obsession with sharks I finally read (or listened rather) the book. I thoroughly enjoyed it....worlds better than the movie. I'm so glad I used a credit on it! The narrator was great. The voices used for various characters were clear and concise. His voice is very pleasant to listen to. I especially loved the voice the narrator used for Harry Meadows. I highly recommend!
