Meg - Meg, Bk 1 - Large Print Author:Steve Alton On a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean's deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face-to-face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he's sure he saw but still can't prove exists - Carcharodon megalodon, the massive mother ... more »of the great white shark. The average prehistoric Meg weighs in at twenty tons and could tear apart a Tyrannosaurus rex in seconds.
Written off as a crackpot suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Taylor refuses to forget the depths that nearly cost him his life. With a Ph.D. in paleontology under his belt, Taylor spends years theorizing, lecturing, and writing about the possibility that Meg still feeds at the deepest levels of the sea. But it takes an old friend in need to get him to return to the water, and a hotshot female submarine pilot to dare him back into a high-tech miniature sub.
Diving deeper than he ever has before, Taylor will face terror like he's never imagined, and what he finds could turn the tides bloody red until the end of time. MEG is about to surface. When she does, nothing and no one is going to be safe, and Jonas must face his greatest fear once again.« less
I ordered this book because it sounded interesting. I was sitting on the sofa enjoying a cup of tea and starting the first chapter of this book when my son walked in. This is a boy who, as he says "HATES" reading. Upon seeing the title he became so excited he had to give me all the information he had stored in his head on the creature. I couldn't believe how much info he had! He got to read the book first. I thoroughly enjoyed it when he was done with it and found that if I buy or trade the right books my son is just a big a "booknick", his term not mine, as I am. This is a book that is worth reading just on the historical facts alone. The fact that the storyline is good and flows easily is a definite plus.
