Skeleton Coast | [Clive Cussler]

Skeleton Coast

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the covert combat ship Oregon have barely escaped a mission on the Congo River when they intercept a mayday from a defenseless boat under fire off the African coast. Cabrillo takes action, saving the beautiful Sloane Macintyre - who's looking for a long-submerged ship that may hold a fortune in diamonds. But what surprises Cabrillo is her story about a crazy fisherman who claims to have been attacked on the open sea by giant metal snakes in the same area.

Publisher's Summary

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the covert combat ship Oregon have barely escaped a mission on the Congo River when they intercept a mayday from a defenseless boat under fire off the African coast. Cabrillo takes action, saving the beautiful Sloane Macintyre - who's looking for a long-submerged ship that may hold a fortune in diamonds. But what surprises Cabrillo is her story about a crazy fisherman who claims to have been attacked on the open sea by giant metal snakes in the same area.

What begins as a snake hunt leads Cabrillo onto the trail of a far more lethal quarry - a deranged militant and his followers who plan to unleash the devastating power of nature itself against all who oppose them.

    Story
    "The River Rats in the dessert?"
    What made the experience of listening to Skeleton Coast the most enjoyable?

    The intrigue and how all of the sub plots and bad guys get tied together. I like the good guys flexible moral approach to dealing with the villains.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cabrillo has to be a favorite since he is the brain child to the Oregon. I loved the way Sloane was brought in as a no nonsense but tough character. she eventually softens as she finds out more about Juan and realizes she can't have what she wants.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott is good at telling the story. He allows your mind to wander to other possibilities as he leads you through the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't cry but there always seems to be sections of the stories that Clive puts in to lighten the mood and Scott makes you laugh at them.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this book and you will be hooked on Oregon.

    "Adventure"

    Reasonable adventure story. Mostly a mindless distraction kind of listen. The recording was sloppy; here was a notification every so often that it was the end of a disc 1, 2, 3, etc. a few mispronounced words. Good to listen to while cleaning the house.

    Story
    "Cussler makes you work a little"

    I have not always enjoyed the long historical set-up that is the hallmark of Clive Cussler, but I've always appreciated it. He really works to create an interesting "history" to kick off his stories. Like it or not (I've grown to like it) he forces you to hold on to the past when you read his books. This book wasn't an out of the park "5" on the rating scale but you would be really hard pressed to give the Cussler/Brick combo less than a "4" even if the story was miserable. This one is not bad. Definitely one to add to your library.

    Story
    "Not anything like the Fargo Adventures :("
    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler again?

    Maybe!


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes!!! I was instantly hooked with the Fargo Adventures. This one doesn't have much of an interesting storyline for me, i could never get into it and hardly remember most of the book. The Fargo Adventures is now easily my 4th favorite series of all time!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Nope!

    Story
    "I lost a friend when I completed this story."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    From the first few words to final parting, I was hooked and guessing on the outcome and how each part will work together to make a final book. Great. You won't do wrong by starting this book...


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I listened to this book with head phones on the couch, I think all of my family thought I was crazy. I could not move.

    "Better than expected"

    I was not sure about the combination of two authers. But it worked well. I Used to read Clive Cussler when I was younger and enjoyed them. His Later Works not as good. Maybe my taste is changing? This was a tyhpical Book from this author and well worth the listen. Tone and inflection is sometimes annoying. Would recommend.
