The characters are introduced well and even the introduction of people that are a few seconds away from death was a welcome change! They are also believeable and most of them you just have to love. Especially Mac the helicoptor pilot and Jonas friend!
This book is brilliant (It must be to draw me back again and again!) even if the cover has changed! But then never judge a book by its cover!
This is a must buy by everyone that has read Jaws as this book beats it hands down!
Rather then write another 'Jaws' story using the cliche shark either a Great White or a Tiger Shark, Steve Alten did his research and brought us Carcharodon Megalodon, a close relation of the modern day Great White that dated back to the time of the Dinosaurs, a shark that reached a massive 60 feet in length and was rightfully top of the food chain. Alten did his research well to point out this creature was very much real and has existed and did a great story to explain how it still came to exist today without ever being seen. This is what sold the story for me the realistic setting and factful information, at times it read more like a biology book then a fiction story.
The story pretty much centres around one Jonas Taylor, a retired Naval Submersible Diver, who after a tragic accident in the Mariana Trench the deepest part of the ocean some 35,000 feet below the ocean surface. Retired from the Navy due to the guilt of being responsible for the death of two scientists aboard the craft he was piloting in the trench. Jonas's story was that he was attacked by a huge creature the Megalodon, but of course no one believed him. He turned his life to Paleo-Biology and began studying about Megalodons, the creature consuming his life.Read more ›
