The story itself is good but feels somewhat like the writer watched Jaws 3 and decided to give it an update. Nothing really wrong with that but it's a little telegraphed in places.
performance is well done and keeps you listening.
What did you like most about Hotel Megalodon?
I liked the ideas around a floating hotel that's costing so much that they make cuts/ tweaks as they are bringing it online that ultimately leads to problems when things hit the fan. Also the super shark idea. Who knows what lies in the depths?
Who was your favorite character and why?
Easily Coco. Clever and determined.
Have you listened to any of Andrew Tell’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No but I did like the narration.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Coco having reached safety decides to go back into danger to help others. That takes courage!
Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book and the concept of the hotel. I would stay there if they got rid of the Megalodon. The idea,story, was believable and the description of island and sea great. The narration was good and characters well developed. I find it hard to believe, though, that a young girl straight out of school was able to pull this off. Her age, experience (or lack of it) and maturity do NOT match the heroine in real life. I just added 10 years to her life and went on to enjoy the story.
I was gifted this book by the author in return for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast. Thanks

I really enjoyed this book. At first, it felt a bit clunky because you are starting midway through the story of the hotel, but it quickly becomes an interesting thriller. All the secondary and minor characters (that is, anyone not Coco or White) are extreme versions of cardboard cutouts. There is a very minor romantic plot that seems to have started as a bigger plot line, but was left dangling. You get names occasionally, but more often you get titles/positions or broad descriptions. Doesn't really matter because most of these people will die in horrific ways.
Andrew Tell did a really good job narrating. He has a good voice and pace for thrillers. Even his female voices are pretty good.
One thing I would like to see is a short story about the fallout from this event. Because it was hard to connect to the characters, I really connected to the idea of what was going to happen after the event. It could be told with newspaper articles, news stories, and trial transcripts. Have Tell narrate and I would totally buy it.
