Great adventure but a rereading of Jaws and that's probably the reason this book is a movie now too. Fun reading despite some really forced moments lol #MEG #SteveAlten #book #bookaholic #booklovers #ler #leitura #leitora #reading #instabook #instaread #instabooks #bookstagram #litsy #booklover #readingabook #vero #Sha2018 #taglivros

This one toes the line of "so bad it's good," but when I've got a huge to-read stack? No thank you. Also, Steve, stop describing women as "exotic" or "delights" or as having "tan, oiled breasts [like] two swollen grapefruits." #Meg #anovelofdeepterror #SteveAlten #giantshark #megalodon #bailbooks

MEG: Primal Waters | Steve Alten
Mehso-so

Not nearly as great as the first two books of the series. The pacing is much slower and drawn out, the actions bits (while interesting) start to feel a bit stale and unimaginative, and the family drama was mildly irritating. It's also got more clichés than ever & I just didn't like it as much as the others. It wasn't terrible, but rather average. Good place for a series break. 3/5.

Book 2 of the #Meg series was phenomenal! It's fast-paced, taking off about 20 pages in. There's always one thing after another that keeps rolling the plot forward. There were some side plot elements that I hope surface in a big way w/upcoming instalments. The science is well-researched & fascinatingly technical; it's intelligently gripping. There's less volcanology & more paleo-biology than the 1st book. 4.5/5.

I'm about 160 pages into this book and I absolutely love how fast-paced it is!! It hooked me within the first 20 pages, and it's been quite the ride so far. Even though I anticipated one of the occurrences, it was still so exhilarating to read about it. I'm definitely enjoying this sci-if-thriller series so far!! 🦈 🦈 🦈

I tried starting this at the beginning of Feb. But due to a monstrous slump I just couldn't get into it. Time to try again! This is the sequel to MEG. The story's a sci-fi thriller (w/o spoilers) about a Megolodan shark. Now that it's tasted so much human blood, it's craving more & more, & it's not the only one! Paleobiologist, Jonas Taylor, returns in the 2nd book of the series as the oceans' last hope!

After reading Meg, I feel a slight season of sea-monsters, creature-feature obsession starting to brew within me, hahaha. I go through the weirdest reading phases, I tell ya. 😆 Hopefully, I'll find another gem within this latest stack!

The science, especially relating to marine biology, palaeontology & oceanography, were really well-done. The high-tech gear & gizmos were also cool. The writing was a great surprise. Suspense, pacing, thrills, & frustration were equally exhibited making the experience very absorbing & fun. There were a couple of minor things that irked me, but overall it's 🦈🦈🦈1/2!

BillBlume Oh wow! Been a long time since I read this book, but I still remember what a fun read it was. Glad you enjoyed it, too. Nice to see it's aging well. 3y
BiblioNyan @BillBlume I'm actually pretty excited about reading more of the Meg books. I saw that it was a series and apparently it's still ongoing! 3y
