This fish makes "Jaws" look like a family pet and a minature one at that -
was interesting enough that I read it a second time when I started running really short of reading material

It was a very quick and light read. I did enjoy it, but I felt the author kind of crammed some stuff in towards the end of the book. It was a good break book from the type of genre I have been reading.

Love this book. Gave my mom nightmares and my brother couldn't finish it because it scared him so bad, but I love it! Edge of your seat read.

I loved all of the parts where Meg attacked. Those were excitingly well written. Everything else however, was boring and hokey. The relationship between the main guy and gal was like a cliche. Yuck.

I loved Meg. Much more terrifying than Jaws. Very quick and reasy read.

Hopefully this will be made into a movie.

First in the series of the megalodon, which is a giant prehistoric shark-Jaws started it but this series is great reading, keeps you on the edge of your seat and makes you feel like you are there with them.

Very visual writting. I think about deep sea diving differently from then on.

If you like ocean-going sci-fi thrillers, this is a good read. Parts of it are a little hokey, and some of the characters are a bit one-dimensional, but it's fast-paced and entertaining. The Meg is definitely one baaaaaaaaaad fishy, and a lot of people end up as unwilling fish food.
It ain't JAWS, but it ain't bad!

Fast paced high octane action adventure, from start to finish!! I'll definitely never get back in the water. Great characters. Believable plot. All around good book. Can't wait to read the rest of them and see the movie.

In the deep Pacific Ocean, Jonas Taylor in a scientific exploratory dive found himself face-to-face with an ancient monster too horrifying for his modern mind to contemplate. He was the sole survivor of the creature's wrath that day....the Meg - a prehistoric Carcharodon megalodon. The creature was rising to the surface ready to churn the tides of terror.
