What in the heck did I just read?! Steve Alten, I love your MEG books, and The Loch was great, but this really fell flat for me. It started out great, with a good plot and great new creatures to deal with. Then it went WAY off the rails. Aliens, UFO conspiracies, inter-dimensional telepathic communication, string theory, the multiverse, time travel, all smashed together in the end. I enjoy sci-fi, but this was way too messy for my taste.

Vostok has went way off the rails into alternate dimensions, aliens, and worst of all lots and lots of math. But before it went all crazy, it was a really entertaining lost world creature book. Like when their small submarine, the barracuda, gets swallowed whole by a giant prehistoric eel.
Ummm.... ya.... uhhhh....... so that happened. I feel like this went off the rails and they just decided to let it crash, but it kept going, it didn‘t crash, it just... kept.... going....
This is hubby's current read, and while he's enjoying it, the errors he's finding are driving him crazy. One historical and one scientific, and both pretty obvious.
WTH? Not what I was expecting. Since reading Jurassic Park at 10, books where people get eaten have been my secret guilty pleasure. Not proud of it, but I'll own it. I've read several by this author before, & he usually delivers, but this? What was this? It wasn't completely horrible, but this sequel to The Loch took a very strange turn. As in aliens & parallel dimensions & gov't conspiracies. Not a sequel. Pure Sci-fi. #LitsyAtoZ #LetterV
