The Loch
The Loch | Steve Alten
Marine biologist Zachary Wallace once suffered a near-drowning experience in legendary Loch Ness, and now, long-forgotten memories of that experience have begun haunting him. The truth surrounding these memories lies with Zachary's estranged father, Angus Wallace, a wily Highlander on trial for murder. Together the two plunge into a world where the legend of Loch Ness shows its true face.

Finally getting some reading in during my long work days! Please excuse the cover, my cat decided it would make a nice snack. Some days archaeology jobs are just a lot of sitting around waiting.

I have to admit that I liked this way more than I thought I would. I really enjoy listening to the MEG series, and the main character from The Loch makes an appearance in MEG: Nightstalkers. So I decided to give this a try, and I'm happy I did! This was easily as good as MEG. Steve Alten knows how to write creature suspense, and how to back it up with scientific reasoning. Zachary Wallace is a likeable character, and conspiracy theories abound!

Thank you @Syndelle777 for starting #whatchareadingwednesdays I love this idea!!
Currently I am listening to The Loch on audio, reading Renegades in hardcover and LumberJanes issue 30 on my kindle. The Loch is reallllly holding my interest and it‘s absolutely stunning, so I‘ve been lagging in reading the other two!

I actually liked this book better than Meg. The writing was a little better and the characters are a little more likable. I don‘t necessarily believe in it but I‘ve always found cryptozoology interesting and I liked that this book used science to explain the myth of the Loch Ness monster🐉🐉🐉🐉/5

#currentlyreading I find Alten‘s writing to be a bit sexist and I‘m absolutely terrified of large creatures inhabiting deep water but I still enjoy a good monster story so I‘m giving this one a try🐉 #bookandbreakfast #pennywiseiswatching

@Captivatedbybooks I thought this book should have the bookmark with shells that you gave me for #keychainswap.
I‘m liking the story of this book so far; but the constant casual #sexism is hard to swallow. I really hope it is a character flaw of the main character, and not the attitude of this author in general.
I‘m sitting in a hospital walk in right now. Work made me leave because it looks like I might have pink eye.

Seekingtardis @DebinHawaii thank you!! I mixed some colors together and didn‘t mix them all the way so that it would have some random spots in there. I think I want glitter next time! 😂 4y

From my Audible wishlist... this book is set at Loch Ness, which is of course in the #highlands 😃

Has anyone read it? Thoughts?

What to do on a Saturday night? Hmmmm....
Why of course! Go to BAM and buy a book about Loch Ness.
I went for The Meg, but they didn‘t have it; not even a Jason Statham movie tie in version.

Seekingtardis That‘s sad!! But the Loch looks cool! (Slides another book on the to be bought then read pile) 4y
LauraBrook Oooo... Jason Statham. 😛 4y
Sophoclessweetheart Jason Statham was at school with my dad. 😹 A daily reminder that just because I‘m from this tiny village in Derbyshire doesn‘t mean I won‘t achieve my dreams. 4y

A full review will be available on my blog brutalbookworm.blogspot.com but I will say I really enjoyed this book. That being said I'm pretty sure I will love everything Mr. Alten writes.
