I love Steven Spielberg's Jaws. It's infinitely rewatchable and, I think, one of the best films of all time. And though I enjoy the Peter Benchley book which inspired it, I do not think of it as a personal favorite novel. Jaws, perhaps more than any adaption, is the one story that is most often cited as the example where sometimes the movie was better than the book. I wrote a piece at Scriptophobic recently hoping to examine why that is. Check it out!
