Yes it's predictable and cliched, but it is still a fun read. There is enough blood and guts for adventure and horror fans and enough real science to snag the more nerdy among us. Ex-sub pilot, and now paleontologist, Jonas Taylor thought he saw a shark, a really BIG shark, in the Mariana Trench. He's spent the years since trying to prove the megalodon might still exist in deep waters. Back in the Challenger Deep Trench to help a friend discover why his earthquake sensors have stopped working he runs into the living proof that his theories are correct. And you guessed it, it's all blood, guts, and destruction on a massive scale from there. The ending really stretches credibility, but it's a fun way to spend a couple of hours if you enjoy death and gore aplenty.
I loved this book and read it years ago. I remember that I had just gotten AOL email and Steve Alten had an email to send him emails inside the book. Not only did he send me an email back but he also sent me an a
utographed book plate and sent me a quarterly newsletter that he published.
I will always remember how gracious he was and appreciative of my compliments. Thank you Goodreads because now I can complement writers through this medium and almost all of them have very kindly responded back!
Guest 4 years agoYou lost me when he was still alive inside the Meg......a little too far fetched to be believable but saves me from spending money on the movie version
Guest 4 years agoI was determined to read the book before I saw the movie, which I'm glad I did. Now having finished most of this series in a week I found it gripping stuff and hope Steve Alten continues this series with more blood and terror.
Guest 4 years agoVery GOOD read!!
