This is not your usual gothic novel although there are similarities such as an old house, people disappearing and strange rumors. The main problem for me is the graphic descriptions of the inhabitance of the house and their sexual depravity which fill about 30% of the book. This may be fine for some but is not my idea of a good mystery/horror book.
do not know.
None were outstanding.
No. Been done as TF closly resembles "The Thing".
Writer needs more imagination for better stories.
The performers need to put more of the character into the reading. Watson was the only one in character.
NO, BY THE PERFORMANCE.
Complete stories instead of "samples".
It is not the characters but the incomplete stories. Sounds like a commercial to by more books. Total waste of time.
Mr. Cussler has moved from fast moving, intriging action and interesting plots to rambling dialogue, history laden prose and a lack of clear connection through the plot. I have many of Mr. Cussler's books and enjoy most of them. Lost Empire is not one of these.
