Back on track

Good to be back on track with this monstor horror series after the weirdness and silliness of Vostok.

Lots of fun, and ending on a real cliff hanger.

Love the Meg series

loved it but way too many iPhones ,so many times all you hear is "David answered his IPhone or the alarm went off on his IPhone.
But I cant wait to the next book.

Meg:generations

So very boring. Difficult to believe it was written by Steve Alten. Could have done without the cancer treatments as anyone with half a brain already has information. Will be returning audio book without finishing.

More far fetched than a living megalodon

As much as I have enjoyed this series, this one I think is one too many. I've watched the film, I've read both versions of the first book. This one I had to stop listening.

Disappointed with this instalment

I've been a fan of the Meg series from the start, but for me I think the series peaked at Hells Aquarium. At this point with the characters having 30 years experience dealing with these creatures you would hope that at least sometimes a plan would succeed without death and destruction. Surely the Taylors can't keep making these same mistakes and still be the go to choice for capturing and housing these eating machines?

Ultimately the reworking of people get eaten by sea monsters is what the series is all about, and there are only so many ways this can be done, so fair enough. However the pseudo-scientific tangents are getting too convoluted to keep track of and really ruined this and the previous book for me. The crossover with Vostok in the previous book was terrible (some sort of time travel, I have no idea what the writer was going for but it made no sense), and the tangents in this one dealing with stem cell miracle cures and acupuncture (?!) were totally bizarre and painful to listen to.

I think the author might be running out of ideas and it may be time to leave the Mariana Trench and its inhabitants alone for good.

He even gave morgan freemans voice a try!

Was a brilliant read by Keith Szarabajka, great story by Steve Alten. Kind of saw the ending coming somewhat but was disappointed at the cliff hanger type ending. Now im going to have to wait what will feel like an eternity for the next book. I'm addicted enough Steve! I don't need cliff hangers thrown into the mix!
Highly recommend this book series as always, amazing stories that make my day. I find myself not wanted to get out of the car when i listen to these books.

Fantastic

A great book, from a great author, I have loved this series ever since I bought the my first cope of meg when it was first released. Ever since then I have never been able to get enough of them!!!

I have been waiting for Generations for what seems like ages, but it has all been so worth while, the story was fast paced with good introduction of new characters and returning favourites. Once again we’ve been left with a really epic cliff hanger, so here comes the wait for the next book.

This is a great book, referencing parts from previous novels which was a nice touch as it has made me now want to go back and go through them again!!

I would like to thank Steve for this series and all his other great works he has done, it has kept me entertained and enthralled for hours.

Not horrible

Very abrupt ending but at least it didn't go in the direction of aliens! Kudos for that!!

Longtime fan, but this wasn't a great book

Way too many fragmented storylines going on, jumping back and forth minute to minute. This book is also solely written with the purpose of setting up another book which feels cheap and leaves a flat feeling when done. Not a single memorable encounter occurs aside from possibly the last line of the book...I am a huge fan of the first 4 books, origins was fine but it's a short story, after those the series has gone off a cliff. I am still unsure which I disliked more, this book or Nightstalkers. Nightstalkers had time travel, aliens and other nonsense storylines but at least had Meg interaction as this is a series about Megs, right? If you love stories about Megs and sharks, then this is honestly not for you. This book has very little to do with them. Also why does the Author incessantly use the term Iphone. Did Apple pay for product placement? Just say phone like every person in the world does. It happens to often that it is jarring to a reader trying to stay in the story.
It was so convoluted and forgettable that everytime I came back to the book even after a short break, I had to go back a few minutes to figure out what was happening.

The Absolute Best One By Far!!!

He has done it again! This installment had me enthralled from chapter one! I have read all of the books in the Meg series and I can not wait for the next one. I love books where I can not guess the ending. I was totally shocked! Thank you Mr. Alten! Please hurry with the next book. Can I pre-order? Lol
