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.

"Wickedly engrossing." (Publishers Weekly)
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!
I'm sorry I need the whole story, where can I find the unabridged version.
yes the unabridged ones
you already cut too much
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.
The twists and turns we anything but predictable

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