4,25 sterren - met dank aan Gerrie - 🦋🦋🦋 Quote uit het boek : “Verdorie Pitt, dat had ik willen doen. “” Helaas ouwe dat heb ik al gedaan. Samen met dit oude trouwe bessie, hahaha.” 🌹🌹🌹 Dirk Pitt en zijn team worden op zee aangevallen door een vaartuig dat al in de tweede Wereldoorlog zou zijn verdwen Leggi tutto
WTF happened to Cussler? Did he go senile & lose his touch or has he always been this crappy a writer? I LIKED "Sarhara", but "Atlantis Found" just SUCKS. After plodding through this book on audio for days, I started to listen today & his hero uses a string to tie 3 rifles together. Then he ties the Leggi tutto
OMG! Holiday reading. Pure nonsense but this really is five star nonsense - an adventure with world-destroying comets, Nazis in Antarctica, ancient civilisations with messages to be deciphered, battles on the ice - what is not to love about it. But, seriously, Cussler is not only a page-turner (somet Leggi tutto
This is my first book by Clive Cussler and, my oh my, I don’t think I have ever read something like this. I meant I read some thrillers with unrealistic plots but this story… well, this one is a genre of its own! I’ve started this book as a beach read and then continued on the plane. And let me say t Leggi tutto
The only book I can remember reading that I gave up on after only ten pages.
What a long book! While this one took me a while to finish, partly because I've had less time to read as of late, I still had a blast with it. A convoluted plot, plenty of action, likable heroes...this was an old-school style page-turner. Unfortunately, some profanity and occasional crude remarks were Leggi tutto
For some reasons, Dirk Pitt is better than James Bond for me.
Will it win the Booker Prize, No ! However is it enjoyable, well written, easy reading and fun, Yes ! All Dirk Pitt novels are similar in some respects, some more believable and/or well written than others, this is undoubtedly one of the best. Yes the book has taken me 20days to read but I have been Leggi tutto
Outstanding book! I was kept on the edge of my seat until the last page was turned - and I mean the very last. Marvelously written, great character development, and set in largely a forbidden climate. Most intriguing.
Of the three Dirk Pitt novels I've read, this was my favorite. I would even give it 3.5 stars if I could. That being said, it still had its share of problems (spoilers follow): - Why were the Fourth Empire so obsessed with keeping the Amenes' civilization a secret? Since their attack had nothing to d Leggi tutto
