Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
The most fearsome predators in history are no longer history.
The Philippine Sea Plate: The most unexplored realm on the planet. Hidden beneath its primordial crust lies the remains of thePanthalassa, an ocean that dates back 220 million years. Vast and isolated, thePanthalassa is inhabited by nightmarish sea creatures long believed extinct.
Tanaka Institute, Monterey, CA: Four years have passed since Angel, the 76-foot, 100,000 pound Megalodon, birthed a litter of pups far too numerous and aggressive to keep in one pen. Fortunately, a Dubai royal prince who is building the largest aquarium in the world seeks to purchase two of the "runts"--if Jonas Taylor's twenty-one year-old son, David, will be their handler. Jonas reluctantly agrees, and David is off to Dubai for the summer of his life, not realizing that he is being set up to lead an expedition that will hunt down and capture the most dangerous creatures ever to inhabit the Earth!

The story is also told from the Megalodon's point of view. I was kind of hoping the shark would eat everybody.
They are making this into a movie, which hopefully the special effects will be awesome to see as there is nothing scarier than a 60 plus foot shark roaming the oceans with an insatiable appetite and no known predators. I've seen the fossilized teeth and even have one of my own...that stuff gives me the creeps.
From the very first page, this book captures and drags its reader down into the dark depths of terror and intrigue that Alten has successfully managed to create in this amazing world of science and fiction. "JURASSIC SHARK" is the most perfect description of this novel - melding together a perfect combination of Jaws and Jurassic Park in a way that makes the reader question just how probable the chances are of the Earth's watery depths actually concealing a prehistoric, aquatic horror. If you have a love for all things shark, then "MEG" is the read for you. Alten definitely did some research for this masterpiece; it shows throughout the book and literally had me questioning the next time I dare venture into the ocean.
"MEG" is a brilliant correlation of action, drama, and suspense. You won't want to put it down - in fact, there is so much action taking place throughout the course of the pages, that it's almost as if you CAN'T! Steve Alten really knows how to lay out science, intrigue, and terror in a single novel; each of these feeding into one another to birth a read greater than you could have originally imagined. I can say for a fact that I am beyond ready to begin the sequel in this series, "THE TRENCH". While I have read mixed reviews on the sequel, "MEG" has done such a good job luring me in with the first book, that I am positive I will HAVE to purchase every continuation novel from this point on. The world of Meg is much bigger than any of its characters could have imagined, and somehow MEG leaves the reader feeling the same way: You have to learn more. While it does seem that the romantic shift in the story kind of bolted out of nowhere, it really didn't bother me too much. I was too busy hoping no one else died (and by that I mean, "Wondering who was going to die NEXT?")
A great story!
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.
