Publisher's Summary

September 1858: An Antarctic whaler stumbles across an aged wreck, her frozen crew guarding a priceless treasure.

March 2001: A team of anthropologists is buried under a mountain by a deliberate explosion.

April 2001: A ship that should have died 56 years ago reappears, and almost sinks a National Underwater and Marine Agency ship.

Dirk Pitt knows that somehow these events are connected. His investigations lead to an ancient mystery with devastating modern consequences, and a diabolical enemy unlike any he has ever known. Now, he is racing to save not only his life, but the world. The trap is set. The clock is ticking. And only one man stands between the earth and Armageddon.

    "Abridged version sucks"
    If you could sum up Atlantis Found in three words, what would they be?

    all-time Favorite book


    Any additional comments?

    you should always offer every book in an unabridged version and let the customer decide on which version to buy. Also what the heck is going on with discontinuing older books from this author if my device fails and i lose the book now there is no way to download it again, is audible willing to reimburse for those titles that were previously purchased but now are not available anymore, I don't think so

    "too short"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'm sorry I need the whole story, where can I find the unabridged version.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler again?

    yes the unabridged ones


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Atlantis Found?

    you already cut too much

    "Very Poor Abridgment"
    What disappointed you about Atlantis Found?

    I realize that abridging a Clive Cussler novel is difficult. The books are long with many interweaving plots and characters. However, I have listened to a few abridgments of Cussler novels and been satisfied with the abridging. This abridgement of Atlantis Found was incredibly poor. It is very difficult and frustrating to follow. Whomever chose the text to include in this abridgment did a very poor job. I would not recommend this abridgment.

    "Dirk Pitt strikes again!"

    At this point Dirk Pitt, the main character of Cussler's books, is getting a little long in the tooth but it is fun to fall into his world of adventure and suspend belief for an afternoon.

    Is there an Atlantis? Only Dirk could find it, probably by diving all by himself and holding his breath the whole time! He reminds me of the guys from the old movies whose hats never fell off while fighting. Hey but who cares? The story is fun, regular characters in full force and once again the world is safe!

    "Need unabridged version."

    Well done but can tell it's abridged. To many things happen to fast without the great detail Cussler provides. Shame full version is not available.

    Any additional comments?

    I found this Clive Cussler book shorter than ones I normally listen to, so it went very quickly for me, BUT - This was a fast book very entertaining and would be great for a day car trip for vacation,

    Story
    "Good story, bad narration."

    Clive Cussler delivers his usual good story, and Dirk Pitt demonstrates his usual heroics, but much of the fun of the adventure is lost due to a lack-luster reading. Did not enjoy this one as much as usual for a Cussler novel.

    "Abridged Version Poorly edited"

    The Abridged version is poorly edited. Much of the story is lost with out the missing edits.

    Story
    "Started out Great, but then...."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, with reservations. Clive Cussler is my favorite writer.
    Dirk Pitt & Al , Kurt & Joe of the Numa Files, Juan of the Oregon Files and my favorite is Isaac Bell Series.


    If you’ve listened to books by Clive Cussler before, how does this one compare?

    I am sad to say this I believe is Mr. Cussler lesser efforts..Many of the story lines start to meld together, always a Rich crazy mislead fool, A beautiful Girl for Dirk to save, etc..
    Problem with this one is the crazy jet ride at the end.. After all the break through's and security, they get on a bogus jet ????? I don't want to add any additional specific's as a cover against spoiler...... his is just my humble opinion.


    What about Stephen Lang’s performance did you like?

    Stephen did a great jiob. I think Al's voice could of been better but all in all, a fine Job.


    Did Atlantis Found inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Again, I love Clive Cusslers book, I have read all of them,,just a littte disappointed with this one.
