I had a issue with his last book , but he must have put some more effort in this one as it was a good listen. I like the character flow this time and enjoyed the descriptions of the foreign landscape in this book. It was not a great plot kinda all over the map but, I did enjoy another Dirk adventure in this series.
I am a big Clive Cussler fan, but this was the first audio Cussler that I have tried. The story is as good as his other books, but I found the narration banal and uninteresting. I will stick with paperpacks of Clive Cussler in the future.
The book it's self is very enjoyable, I just wish it had a different narrator. I have seen a lot of praise for Scott Brick on audible and I was looking forward to experiencing his outstanding oration. Sadly his voice is dull and nasal, his diction and tone are like a Charlton Heston parody, and as far as I can tell there is no difference between characters voices unless they are of a different nationality or sex. I guess I've been spoiled by Roy Dotrice and the like, true storytellers and artists. Or maybe I just expected too much because of the hype.
I listen to many books as I take my jogs every week. Some are much harder to listen to than others. This is one of those that keep your ears and brain interested. I highly recommend this as an audio book.
I was very impressed with this book great story that could come from the pages of the news today.
My husband and I enjoyed the story very much. We enjoyed having several story plots all converging together. It added to the to the suspense. We really appreciated that these books are basically clean without all the sex and implications. It is refreshing.
I have been reading Mr. Cussler's books since the 9th grade, and that was almost 30 yrs ago.
I lost faith with him when he started to write diatribes about environmentalism.
Dirk Pitt is an adventurer, not a litter policeman.
This book is a good start to going back to the days of "Raise the Titanic", "Vixen 03", and "Night Probe." Dirk was a bad A## in those books, and now he has returned.
Crescent Dawn plays to the audience of Dirk Pitt fans so if you have a Pitt addiction you won’t be disappointed. This particular story draws on so much improbable luck and coincidence (even by Cussler standards), that it’s impossible to take seriously. I’d categorize this as a good vacation read.
