Publisher's Summary

It was the greatest predator of all time, the most fearsome creature that ever lived - a 70-foot, 70,000-pound great white shark. Its jaws, filled with hundreds of seven-inch serrated teeth, could swallow an elephant whole. It could sense its prey from miles away, and if you ever came close enough to see the monster, it was already too late.
Eighteen years have passed since Jonas Taylor last crossed paths with Carcharodon megalodon. Now a middle-aged father of two, he is overwhelmed by mountains of bills and the daily strife of raising a family. But life is about to change. A Hollywood television producer wants Jonas to join his new survival series: Daredevils. For the next six weeks, two teams of crazy daredevils on a South Pacific Ocean voyage will try to outperform one another in front of the cameras. Jonas needs the money, and working on the color commentary seems easy enough. But behind the scenes, someone else is pulling the strings. And before it's over, Jonas will again come face-to-face with the most dangerous creatures ever to stalk the oceans.

Ok, but not the best of this series

I have previously read and am a huge fan of, all of the MEG books by Steve Alten and thought this time around I would try the audio versions. I'm a big fan of the series but sadly this book is my least favorite of them all. I can't stand reality TV so all the parts taking place with that group of people I did not enjoy. Actually found myself cheering for the shark because I didn't like any of those characters. In all honesty I didn't like any of the secondary characters they meet in this book. I still enjoy Jonas and Mac and their families but there was nothing likable about any of the people they met along the way. I was glad when people got eaten by the Meg! The end of the book does get much better though so that's what always keeps me going through this novel. All the rest of the series are amazing! I highly recommend reading them all, this one just happens to be my least favorite of the lot.

As for the audio vs the actual book... I didn't overly care for this particular narrator. His voice is very gravelly and throaty which made Jonas sound sort of ailing and decrepit all the time. I get that he is older now, but he still manages to kick some ass in this book, so having him sound like an old man didn't seem to match up. Also when he did voices for women or the kids it just never felt right. I think this narrator would be better for a detective novel maybe. Just my opinion.

Wow exhausting. ...but I couldn't stop listening.

I didnt care for the narrator for this book. The voice too gravely, he may be better suited for detective or mob stories.

Not as good as the first 2

The story is a lot weaker than the first 2 books. Soap opera at sea.

Megs, Megs everywhere...

I read this after reading the sequel Hell’s Aquarium, and I loved it. Better than the sequel. More Megs, more action, lots of silly situations resulting in awesome deaths. Pretty good head count in this one.
Minus a star in the performance for the terrible Aussie accents.
