Peek Inside a Book - Meg

When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.

This week I'm reading: Meg by Steve Alten


It Begins: 

Late Cretaceous Period, 70 Million Years Ago
The Coast of Asiamerica-Northern Landmass (Pacific Ocean)

From the moment the early morning fog had begun to lift, they sensed they were being watched. 

On Page 56:
As the helicopter approached the aft deck, Jonas immediately recognized the large reinforced-steel winch attached to the ship's transom which had been used to lower the twenty-five UNIS submersibles to the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

I wanted to read this since it was the basis of the movie The Meg starring Jason Statham.  It was a really good read and it is the first in a series. I don't know if I'll read more books but now I can't wait to watch the movie and compare the two.
