Cussler, Connelly, Clancy I like all with a C ...
It is a standard Pitt adventure, nothing really new. So it is no letdown but no surprise either.
Nothing to highlight.
Cussler knows how to deliver a bad a** perpetrator his just reward. Wild and crazy complicated plot that gets all nicely tied up in a bow at the end, YES! There's plenty of action and adventure with alot of destruction (boy would I hate try to figure out how to do the special effects for a movie version). If you like Cussler's books, this one doesn't disappoint, if you like action and adventure, try it, you'll probably like it too.
As for the audio version, Scott Brick is the best!
The story line is so improbable and silly that I was unable to make it more than half way though this book. I just missed the deadline to return the book by a couple of days or otherwise I would have returned it.
Scott Brick yes, Cussler no.
They seem to have run out of ideas
Can't think of one
No, heard it all before
Are the people in the book supposed to be this stupid
BETTER THAN EVER!
It felt like "coming home" when all of the original characters interacted with each other.
It wouldn't be the same if Scott Brick didn't read this novel. He is Dirk Pitt.
It made me smile
I would recommend this book to any Clive Cussler fans. Can't wait for the next book.
Helpless in CyberSpace
This book is really good. I like CliveCussler books any way but I really enjoyed the character development and that there were no loose ends at the end of the book
When Pitt was escaping from the prison. Can't say too much without giving away too much.
The characters were easy to tell apart. Things didn't drag. A good pace to keep up with things without having to rewind to catch up. Was not disappointed with Mr.Bricks performance.
Because each time you listen, you will pickup some detail you missed the first time
Dirk, always comes out on top but I fail to understand with all his experience how the heck he gets in some of the jams.
Not extreme, just excited, Some chuckles, no tears.
Keep the books coming
This book ranks right up there with my other favorites
as many as I can find..I feel Scott Brick stands alone at the top
yes it was
I would say it is a must read for Clive Cussler books
Same old story as the last one and the six or seven before. You can even hear it in Scott Brick's voice. He must be thinking didn't we just record this one, I guess they forgot. Well I'll take their money if they want to give it to me. The first few book's Dirk was a WWII vet. That in itself would make him what 80,85 year's old.
I drive an average of 350 miles a week. Without an audio book playing I would go bonkers.
Clive always begins his Pitt adventures with a flashback that ultimately becomes a key part of the larger story. I'm still trying to figure out how this one was relevant. Sometimes it seemed as if Mr. Cussler and his son weren't really communication very well when they wrote this.
Still, it's a good 'read', just not at the top of my list of Dirk Pitt adventures. I think married life must be getting the best of our hero...
