Not horrible

Very abrupt ending but at least it didn't go in the direction of aliens! Kudos for that!!

OMG this series keeps getting better!

I wasn't sure about this entry at first. it seemed to jump around and have too much back story. But that's probably good for new readers. It's all came together at the end though and now I'm breathlessly waiting for the next book.

Didn’t meet expectations

Been really looking forward to this book and my mistake was probably getting it on audible. The narrator was not that good. The story itself was mediocre compared to his earliest stuff. The first book and Hells Aquarium are my all time favorites. The last book seemed to put there and this book, I feel, ignored a lot of what happened in the previous book. For example: last book had Jonas go to the hospital for a blood clot and the doctors telling him no more deep dives or your dead, which is why Terry had to go down the next time. I don’t was really hoping this book would have redeemed the last one but now I don’t know if I want to continue reading.

Longtime fan, but this wasn't a great book

Way too many fragmented storylines going on, jumping back and forth minute to minute. This book is also solely written with the purpose of setting up another book which feels cheap and leaves a flat feeling when done. Not a single memorable encounter occurs aside from possibly the last line of the book...I am a huge fan of the first 4 books, origins was fine but it's a short story, after those the series has gone off a cliff. I am still unsure which I disliked more, this book or Nightstalkers. Nightstalkers had time travel, aliens and other nonsense storylines but at least had Meg interaction as this is a series about Megs, right? If you love stories about Megs and sharks, then this is honestly not for you. This book has very little to do with them. Also why does the Author incessantly use the term Iphone. Did Apple pay for product placement? Just say phone like every person in the world does. It happens to often that it is jarring to a reader trying to stay in the story.
It was so convoluted and forgettable that everytime I came back to the book even after a short break, I had to go back a few minutes to figure out what was happening.

Not that great

Far from the best in the series. As others mentioned, it's all over the place which drove me nuts. Steve never did it like this before, at least not the way remember the others. Narrator kind of drove me nuts. There were good and bad parts with the voice. Sure I am looking forward to read what happens, but to me so much could have been cut out of this book. Not sure why the editor felt this was good or did they just rush to get this out to get something extra because of the movie. Sorry Steve, not up to par with the rest of your books.

Chapter 6 in the story of giant sharks and worse

Another chapter in the story of the Taylor family and their far from healthy obsession with giant marine creatures. Jonas and Terry are about to retire to Florida and give up chasing giant sharks, when Terry is diagnosed with cancer. David's personal life is in a shambles, as usual. Meglodons are sinking boats and eating people. Prehistoric sea creatures, bigger than ever recorded are terrorizing the seas. But enough about the opening chapters... there is a whole lot going on.

I strongly suggest you read the previous books to get the most out of this book. Oh, and plan on buying the next book too.

Recommended.

He even gave morgan freemans voice a try!

Was a brilliant read by Keith Szarabajka, great story by Steve Alten. Kind of saw the ending coming somewhat but was disappointed at the cliff hanger type ending. Now im going to have to wait what will feel like an eternity for the next book. I'm addicted enough Steve! I don't need cliff hangers thrown into the mix!
Highly recommend this book series as always, amazing stories that make my day. I find myself not wanted to get out of the car when i listen to these books.

Fantastic

A great book, from a great author, I have loved this series ever since I bought the my first cope of meg when it was first released. Ever since then I have never been able to get enough of them!!!

I have been waiting for Generations for what seems like ages, but it has all been so worth while, the story was fast paced with good introduction of new characters and returning favourites. Once again we’ve been left with a really epic cliff hanger, so here comes the wait for the next book.

This is a great book, referencing parts from previous novels which was a nice touch as it has made me now want to go back and go through them again!!

I would like to thank Steve for this series and all his other great works he has done, it has kept me entertained and enthralled for hours.
