Outstanding!!!

Steve,s done it again sat me in my over stuff chair for hours. I just can't find a stopping point. Please don't forget to read the first book[Meg]and the second book [The trench]before reading this one.

What is it about books and their covers? I picked up Primal Waters without really looking at it, not realizing it was third in a series. This is the first Steve Alten book I¿ve read, and I don¿t really understand the enthusiasm some of his fans have for him. He¿s good, but certainly not great. The entire premise is outlandishly farfetched. It seems a bit strange that three Megalodons would leave the depths of the Mariana Trench at the same time, and stranger still that they all happen to cross paths with members of the Taylor family. The characters are not terribly well developed, it is difficult to really identify with any of them, and the dialog is stilted and unlikely. The villain who arranges for Jonas Taylor to meet with one of the Megs is almost a parody of James Bond¿s foils. The most interesting and compelling scenes are those featuring the Megalodons and, fortunately, there are enough of those to keep the book moving. The book was good enough that I will probably read Meg and The Trench, but I doubt I¿ll be urging others to do the same

    give me a break

    I'm astounded at the number of 5-star reviews for this pulpiest of pulp fiction. The plot is so fantastically unbelievable, the writing absurdly over-the-top, and the characters as one-dimensional as they come. I stumbled across this in the 'what we're reading' section of a local bookstore... I can only guess that the glowing recommendation came from a college kid (or younger) with too much summer time on his hands. I mean: give me a break, folks. Nothing more than a series of 'gee, what can I do now to have the shark attack top the last one...?!' If you want a good shark story or two, look for Peter Benchly.
