Publisher's Summary

The Philippine Sea Plate is the deepest, most unexplored realm on the planet. Hidden beneath its ancient crust lies the remains of the Panthalassa, an ocean that dates back 220 million years. Vast and isolated, the Panthalassa is inhabited by nightmarish species of sea creatures long believed extinct.

Tanaka Institute, Monterey, CA: Angel, the recaptured 76-foot, 100,000-pound Megalodon, has birthed a litter of pups - five females - far too numerous and aggressive to keep in one pen. One solution: a Dubai royal prince is building the largest aquarium in the world and seeks to purchase two of the "runts".

The deal hinges on hiring Jonas Taylor's 21-year-old son, David, to be their trainer. Jonas reluctantly agrees, and David is off to Dubai for the summer of his life - not realizing he is being set up to lead an expedition that will hunt down and capture the most dangerous creatures ever to inhabit the planet.

MOVIE

I hope this gets made for a movie or a three part mini series because all the meg series have to be included.

Underwater adventure with giant dinosaurs.

This one introduces huge new beasts of the deep and they are amazing. The amount of research that had to have gone into this story is very exciting. Alten's book are always adventurous and well paced. Highly recommend.

Excitement and suspense!

MEG: Hell's Aquarium
by Steve Alten
One of my frivolous delights is a monstrous-type book to read at night like a late night B movie I use to watch as a kid! Popcorn and a monster book at night is so devilishly fun! A no-brainer, just lots of thrills and fascination! Especially if it's an extinct creature! This is perfect for that category! Lots of suspense, giant megalodon, and more giant creatures! Unpredictable and exciting! Great narration!

Really great read

I loved this story and the voice of the reader is outstanding. The plot is preposterous but it works. Can’t wait for the next story.

Great book

This is, as always with the 'meg' series a great book, maybe the story jumps locations back and forth a bit much, but that does not detract from a fascinating story.

If you enjoy the other books in the 'meg' series you won't be disappointed Steve Alten has conjured up another deep sea nightmare.

I am seriously happy that 'The Loch' and 'Vostok' have been released as these will nicely join a few of the Meg books and characters together.

Thank you, please release the rest of the Meg Series soon!!!!!

Loving the series

Enjoyed the book but there were some factual errors contained within….didn’t matter though. It’s a load of enjoyable escapism which passes my dog walking time …not to be taken seriously just enjoyed for what it is. On to the next one.

What the...

OK, I've always been a softie when animals are concerned, anything from Watership Down to King Kong real or animated, can't watch/read, won't watch/read. So bad, that no newspapers or TV here, between the donkey adverts and RSPCA etc just too much for me, people, nah, not bothered, and love a good gory thriller. So I thought, Megladon, it'll be OK, they're not exactly cuddly huh! Oh the tears! Won't give the plot away, but my eyes leaked more than once (yep, I'm that soft) Mr Alten has researched his subjects and listening to any of the Meg books is a lesson, yes he has his little annoying things as I find a lot of authors have, using same descriptions etc, but oh how he made me feel for some characters, despise others and fall in love with the majestic Megladon! Not recommended for the faint of heart as there's graphic descriptions, but these don't seem to have been to shock for shocking sake, but more to make the listener understand just how powerful, and diverse Mother Nature is and we're really not all that. We've interfered and destroyed for knowledge seemingly, and for whatever reason believe we're the higher power. Sometimes I'm embarrassed to be called a human being. Everything has a purpose and the balance shouldn't be interfered with.
Mr Alten you are amazing, and thank you audible. Rant over.....carry on. 🤗

Monster crazy

So far this is the weakest of the series. I liked how it carries on with the son but too much of "its a big shark but it won't hurt me as I just get a little close, oh dear I got eaten".
The recapping of previous books was useful but it went too giant monster crazy at the end when it just seems every swimming dinosaur randomly appeared.

Fun

I enjoyed relistening to this series, still got issues with the constant push of evolution. But if you can turn that off it's quite enjoyable.

The narrator has some annoying habits, mispronunciation of archipelago and a few other words. Later in the series his accents end up all over the place, especially when he's swapping between Scottish and Arabic accented English.

Will come back to it as and when I want a mindless listen.

Good read, but not as good as the first two books.
