The Meg
Meg - Steve Alten

This was going to be a 5 star rating, but the book needed editing. There were a few grammatical errors that were easy to spot. Also took half a star for the misogyny. It didn't bother me too much because it was military guys being that way, and that's just the nature of them. My husband tells me stories of his buddies that would make my skin crawl if I knew it wasn't a joke.

 

Anyway, the plot was fast paced, the characters varied, and the settings well described. My recommendation is to not read Meg: Origins first, even though it's in the front of the book. Read the actual novel then go back and read the prequel. It gives things more suspense.

I'm just going to go ahead and tell you: I am one of the crazies that doesn't quite believe Megs are extinct. We don't know anything about the depths of the ocean, so I will not say something like a giant shark can't be out there. They found a fish they thought was extinct swimming off the coast of Australia a few years ago. So I reserve judgment.

Felt a slump coming on so I broke out something I have been saving for such a moment. Loved the movie. Love Megalodons in general. Giant sharks fascinate and terrify me. I bought this entire series, and so far this is really good. It isn't so Michael Crichton that it bores me, but it does have a lot of science in it. This author clearly understands deep sea diving and submersibles. This was definitely a good choice to read while I wait on my Ginsberg audiobook to come up for checkout.

 

 

My real Meg tooth is almost 4 inches long. That would make the shark almost 40 feet. Scary, huh?

Well, this was a big load of rubbish. Culminating in and ending which was an even bigger load of rubbish. Add to this that this book is poorly written and sexist and ridiculous. And that´s about the only thing I want to say about this book.
