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.

    "Undecided"

    This is my 2nd Oregon Files book I have listened to and I hafta say I am not impressed.
    I will stick with the series giving C.C. the benefit of the doubt but unless they get good by the end of the 4th in series, I'm gone.
    Come on! I listened to the Dirk Pitt novels starting 20 years ago and all in order and yes the early ones stunk but they got great quick and stayed great until almost the end but when it comes to a series like this with the help of a seasoned writer I would expect better. probably too many cooks in the kitchen.
    Thanks for the memories though Clive.

    "Another great Cussler!"

    I rarely read or listen to a Cussler book I don't thoroughly enjoy. These are some of my favorite characters.

    "Terrific Book"

    While I am not a seaworthy person and do not know all the terms Clive Cussler uses regarding ships, etc., I always enjoy his books and you learn from them as well. And with Scott Brick narrating, it makes it even better. Keep writing.... Clive, keep narrating Scott....

    Story
    "Formulaic screed against Global Warming"

    I was disappointed in this formulaic mindless rant against the theory of human causation of Global Warming. While he does a decent job of tying up the many loose ends of his plot line, Custer makes leaps so far from reality as to make one's head spin. Good reading for the mindless and gullible. Good guy gets woman. Privateers get done what government can't, by people trained by the Government!
    In the end, kind of left me vaguely disturbed and sad.

    "boring"

    too predictable, too much "filler" dialogue and very simple theme...first and last of Cussler books for me

    "poorly written"

    I've read about twenty Cussler books over the years, and this is most poorly written I've come across. When characters need motivation for doing something out of character, the writer(s) make up something on the spot. And the formula is so old it would make a baby sick: mad scientist wants to teach the bad, bad world a lesson, and our hero stops him with the help of his two-dimensional crew and a beautiful, overly witty woman. The narration is good, though.
