SOME truly great films have been made from some truly lousy books. Steven Spielberg’s 1975 blockbuster Jaws is a masterpiece. Peter Benchley’s 1974 book, on the other hand, is complete garbage.

The characters are so unlikeable, you find yourself willing the shark to gobble up every last one of them and then go hunting for the author. No wonder Spielberg threw 95pc of what was in the novel overboard.
