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

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 Best of the series 14 settembre 2011
Di Beckahrah - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Steve Alten himself called this "the best of the Meg series," and I think he's right. I really enjoyed it. I remember thinking the previous book in the series was slow and disappointing, but I devoured Hell's Aquarium (no pun intended). Angel, the captured Megaladon, is just as terrifying and bloodthirsty as ever...only now she has a litter of five pups to help her terrorize the aquarium's visitors. It was fast-paced and full of bloody scenes of carnage and prehistoric terror, and every time you think the scientists are safe...they're not. Awesome. I couldn't put it down. I brought it to work and I confess I stretched out my lunch break a couple of times so I could keep reading it a little longer.

When I first read the description of the book, I thought, "Kronosaurs? Liopleurodons? Really? Are they magical Liopleurodons that will show me the way to Candy Mountain and joy and joyness?" I sighed, settled in, and braced my self for cringing disappointment. After all, I'd read the first three books and I'm a completest so I had to read this one. But it was done surprisingly well. I think Alten did a great job with his research. I actually believed there was another world below the ocean floor, teeming with antediluvian monsters. I kept Google Images up the whole time so I could get an idea of what those neat prehistoric monsters looked like as I read.

My only complaint was the exclamation points. Heaven save me from the exclamation points.

Alten must have really pissed off his editor, because I felt like I was reliving that episode of Seinfeld where Elaine dates an author and puts exclamation points on everything. I was so distracted that more than once I pulled out my trusty highlighter and catalogued them as I read, as though I planned to hold it up to anyone who would listen and cry out, "Do you see them? Am I insane? How can I read with all these yellow slashes on the page?" I counted seven exclamation points on one-half of one page. Seven. Not even during dialogue, which would be forgivable, and this happened more than once. It took me out of it every single time. "The shark ate its dinner! Then it swam around! Then it surfaced! Then it dove! Shark! There's a shark! There's another shark! So many sharks!" Not necessary to the scene. Not even a little. They clustered together like little schools of annoying, biting fish and at times I actually wanted to set the book on fire.

But I powered through, and aside from the %$*#ing exclamation points, I give this 4 out of 5 stars and I'm eagerly anticipating book 5 in the series.

Meg: Hell's Aquarium

Jonas Taylor and his family now have sole ownership of the Tanaka Institute, Danielle hosts the shows of the main attraction, David is in college, and Terry is the CEO of the Institute. Things can't be better...

But they can get worse.

Angel's five offspring, all female, are trouble with a capital T. The runts of the litter, Angelica, Mary-Kate and Ashley (the Olsen names are tagged on the runts by popular vote on the Internet) would be a handful all by themselves, but the Sisters, Bela the Dark Overlord and Elizabeth the Countess of Blood, are in a category of their own. The Sisters are bigger, uncanny, intelligent, and more cunning than their siblings. The most unsettling thing about them is that they work together, an unprecedented phenominon. Megs are supposed to be solitary hunters, not tag-team partners.

All five, one and all, are scared spitless of their mother. I wonder if sharks do have spit...

None of the offspring are as utterly ruthless as their mother, Angel, now fully-grown and bad to the bone. Tragedy strikes when Angel begins to show behavior that's radically different from her behavior of the past. Even so, people still flock to see the 74-foot bio-luminescent Angel Of Death.

A pesky element in the plot is RAW, Return Animals to the Wild, an organization that makes PETA look like the Girl Scouts. These ignorant fools who to try to force the Institute into actually releasing all of the pups out to the open ocean, have no care for the disasters that could befall the earth's waters if charceradon megalodon once again rule as the apex predators of the sea.

When Jonas fields an offer from a small but very rich Arabian country to buy Mary-Kate and Ashley, the plot thickens. The Prince of the country wants the Meg pups for his new venture, a hotel/aquarium, and he also wants the Tanaka Institute's most advanced two-man deep submersibles, the Manta Rays... and David to work for him.

Jonas feels like the Prince is up to no good, but David, now 21, commits himself to escorting and training the pups, and teaching people how to pilot the new subs.

What none of them know is that they are, indeed, being manipulated. The Prince is working from plans once dreamed up by Jonas' ultimate nemesis, Michael Maren. The ghost of Maren may exact its final revenge after all.

This book is fast-paced, engaging, suspenseful, sad, exciting and terrifying all at the same time. Steve Alten has hit another home run with Hell's Aquarium.

Be careful. When you go hunting monsters, check your place on food chain first...

4.0 su 5 stelle Gore, Monstrous Predators, Conspiracies, and A New Protagonist 15 maggio 2009
Di TMStyles - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
"Meg: Hell's Aquarium" is Steve Alten's fourth effort in his highly engrossing "Meg" series that quickly becomes contagious reading for first time readers. Alten has developed a style that blends equal doses of well researched science (primarily ichthyology and paleontology) with tight plots featuring evil villains, strong heroes, voracious predators, and intense suspense. It is a credit to the author that readers often become perversely fascinated with his predatory "killing machines"--almost like those of us who gazed in wonder at the Sopranos week after week.

In this installment, two separate story lines converge into a nail biting finale. Angel, the giant megalodon has given birth to 5 female pups which has seriously stretched the resources of the Tanaka Institute in Monterey to keep them all safely enclosed. After several bloody accidents at the institute, several pups are sold to a Dubai prince who wishes to create a world class aquarium in Dubai as well as harboring a more sinister plan to capture and display prehistoric predators which have been discovered in a hidden sea deep below the crust of the Mariana Trench.

Jonas Taylor's son, David, apparently is the heir apparent to the Meg series now that his father is 65. David is enlisted to go to Dubai ostensibly to train pilots on the latest underwater diving devices but, unknowingly, to be used on a suicidal mission to explore the hidden sea. David falls in love with a pilot trainee, meets up with Angel's pups, becomes a pawn in an evil conspiracy, and ultimately is at the eye of the storm in a terrifying and gut gripping ending that includes battles to the death with monstrous sea creatures and a race against time for life itself.

Meg fans will love this installment which, as always, contains enough scientific information and jargon to please any sci-fi fan. Alten's tried and true formula and tight knit plotting continues to work as many of his returning characters are well fleshed and likable. His research of the oceans and their denizens, past and present, is impressive and his ability to write breath taking passages with lives in peril is extraordinary. Readers are still required to exercise some suspension of disbelief but it always occurs in such a roller coaster fashion that often it is unnoticeable until one looks back on it later. I did find David a bit bland and naïve to carry this series but perhaps that will change in book 5. The ending is definitely inconclusive enough to beg for a follow up effort.
