2.0 su 5 stelle Predictable and Annoying 3 febbraio 2017
Di Cuban8 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Shark stories are almost always interesting reading, but several things made this book somewhat annoying. First and foremost was the writing in third person, present tense; it sounds like I'm sitting in a publisher's office, listening to a book idea being pitched in excruciating detail - extremely grating. Everything was predictable and so over-the-top...if a character other than the main character was introduced something like, "He was married, with two kids in college..." I immediately knew he was going to be eaten or maimed. It seemed to be just one situation after another, each contrived to allow someone to be eaten or maimed. The formula seemed to be "anything that can go wrong will go wrong, everyone will make stupid decisions to ensure that things go wrong, keep introducing a constant supply of new victims and, whenever something goes wrong, someone's going to be eaten." And then there's Lana Wood being eaten by a shark. Lana Wood...seriously?! It seemed as if Alten just threw everything but the kitchen sink into the plot. I'm surprised that James Bond didn't show up, too! About the only thing that caught me somewhat by surprise was the girlfriend being eaten near the end and I was even kind of half-expecting that. The glider design left me shaking my head, too: two control sticks and two motor speed control pedals. As a pilot, I found that configuration totally ridiculous; since it was designed to "fly" underwater and if I had designed it, it would have had aircraft-style controls...a single stick or yoke, a throttle, and perhaps a set of rudder pedals. As I said, I like shark stories, but this one read like Amateur Night at the Writing School.

5.0 su 5 stelle Totally outstanding series!!! 2 novembre 2016

I have been obsessed/terrified with great white sharks since reading Jaws back in 1974, then the movie was released in 1975 and I was 14 years old. This series about the Megalodons has stirred the same awe and fascination. I just can't get enough of this series!! I find impulse racing and my anxiety at the roof while reading these books, the Author draws you into these characters lives and your either yelling at them for their stupidity or clutching your kindle so hard while they're fighting for their lives! I am getting ready to purchase the next book in this series and can't wait to read about the chaos the "Sisters" bring😉 Do yourself a favor, if Jaws was to your liking then the Meg series is gonna blow your mind🙌

5.0 su 5 stelle He’s alive, I’m not sure he’ll ever be okay again. 17 gennaio 2015
Di Jamil Bhatti - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I really only picked this book up out of a love of Jaws and bargains. Perhaps it was my low expectations that set me up to love Steve Alten and this series for life. I was immediately dismissive of the cover which has an oversized shark peering at a boy through an aquarium wall (turns out that’s not a shark but the prehistoric monster Megalodon) and was skeptical of the title which sounds a little sensational and lame. Fortunately I was wrong about everything.

I LOVE THIS BOOK. It reminds me of the best of Michael Crichton - Grounded in science just enough to be plausible, imaginative enough to stir my sense of wonder, and paced perfectly so that I only want to read this book and nothing else. This isn’t even the first book in the series, but even so, it was a fine point of entry for me. I haven’t been this impressed with a new author in a while, I was really blown away.

4.0 su 5 stelle it's a good book. If you want a book to read ... 2 gennaio 2017
Di StandingWolf - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

For shallow entertainment, it's a good book. If you want a book to read on a long train ride, this will absorb you for a few hours. There's still a lot of chunks of "Let me educate you ALL about prehistoric shark stuff!!!" that can be annoying as it has nothing to do with the plot. And as per all the other books the author has written, there's always a detailed description of the "ampules of loerenziiii"(sp) in just about every chapter it seems. If you can sort through the attempts at a science class, the story is pretty good.

3.0 su 5 stelle Doesn't pretend to be high-brow, entertains, but falters some. 18 gennaio 2017

***Warning: Some Spoilers Below***

I feel as if this is the weakest entry in the series so far. The plot feels inorganic, and a certain Benthic behemoth's proportions find themselves greatly exaggerated. This being science fiction and written in a time of ignorance of the creature's size, I am willing to suspend disbelief forgive that.

What I can't look past are moments when the curtains are pulled back and the strings of deus ex machina are seen as character deaths are rail-roaded. It's almost at a George R. R. Martin level of Murphy's Law abuse. You have your characters who never die, and then you have those that were written specifically to be chum. The fact that I can clearly see who fits what spectrum is a sign that this novel should have gestated longer.

What began as an opportunity to showcase horrific creatures culminated into some throwaway (albeit terrifying) icthy's and a Liopleurodon whose grossly-miscalculated size removes the reader from the intrigue of the story. I would have liked to have seen more of this. Instead, we have a rat-trap of a plot filled with attempts at setting up a grim "Shadows of the Empire" ending to segway into a future novel. I preferred the "Die Hard" approach to Primal Waters' descents into ridiculousness.

If there's one thing that I did love about this book, it was that I was pleasantly surprised by Alten's ability to craft an ire-provoking villain, and in Hell's Aquarium, you get a villain for both the Tanaka Institute's and the Dubai Aquarium's.

Funnily enough, I'm more irked by Angel's death than anything in this book. Out of all the characters in the book, I put the most stake in her survival only to have her killed off cheaply in an offscreen twist. Just read the final scene and you'll be as confused as I was. A Megalodon's death grip somehow loosened by the pull of a super tanker? I mean maybe. I guess Alten just needed the money from that sequel. . .
