Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror with Meg: Origins

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Steve Alten

Narrated By: Sean Runnette

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: April 2014

Duration: 11 hours 0 minutes


Steve Alten presents his debut, a jaw-dropping and terrifying novel about a marine paleontologist who faces off against the ocean's most deadly predator.

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 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 PhD 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.

    The book was pretty good- kind of a cross between Deep Blue Sea and Jurassic Park. It is strictly a thriller/creature novel, no deep science or philosophy here, but generally entertaining all the same. The narrator was ok, hearing him do women’s voices was a bit ridiculous, but I got through the book. Some narrators are so talented, you forget it’s a woman speaking as a man, or vice-versa. In this case, the narrator had a deep nasal voice that put his female characters into a falsetto that grated on me a bit.
