Sulla tranquilla isola greca di Taso si trova la sonnolenta base militare di Brady Field. Ma un giorno la vita monotona e pigra che vi si svolge è turbata da un'improvvisa quanto disorientante incursione aerea: un "caccia" del tipo usato nella seconda guerra mondiale si materializza nel cielo e investe Brady Field con un torrente di fuoco. L'obiettivo dell'incursione appare a poco a poco evidente: impedire le ricerche sul misterioso pesce Enigma, straordinario esempio di fossile vivente. Chi meglio di Dirk Pitt potrebbe gettare luce sulla vicenda?

Fuck this book with a spiked baseball bat soaked in concentrated lime juice. Our hero Dirk Pitt slaps a crying woman because she's still sad over the death of her husband. He then proceeds to tell this thirty-year-old woman that someone should have bent her over their knee and spanked the grief out o Leggi tutto
I have always loved books and reading, before I had a nightly routine of one-hundred annually and author gender and genre preferences. In bargain bins I came upon novels by Clive Cussler and acquired most of the “Dirk Pitt” tales, except this second volume. I was relieved to land “ The Mediterranean Leggi tutto
This was my first foray into this adventure kind of novel. At least I think that's what it was. It was ok, but pretty mindless entertainment. I feel like I just ate an entire bag of chips or something completely empty of nutritional value. It had its exciting, action-filled moments, but the characte Leggi tutto
Un librito de aventuras que se ha dejado leer, pero no me ha entusiasmado. El héroe de la novela, el mayor Dirk Pitt, resulta plano, unidimensional: un macho de otros tiempos que lo tiene fácil para seducir a las heroínas y que sale triunfante de sus difíciles peripecias. De los libros de Clive Cuss Leggi tutto
I don't mind some objectionable items but mistreatment of women is one thing I can't abide. Thankfully there was only a small amount of this at the beginning. I am at a loss as to why authors feel that a misogynistic attitude is a must in action books. Dirk Pitt is a dick! This shows in his cavalier Leggi tutto
While I'm way too young to remember the seventies, I've heard they were a very immoral time. Shows from back then, such as Three's Company , are perfect proof of what a loosey-goosey decade it was. So, the fact that Clive Cussler published this book in 1973 makes the sexual content here no surprise. T Leggi tutto
A cover blurb on another Dirk Pitt novel compares the hero of Clive Cussler's novels to James Bond. The comparison is an apt one, especially when it comes to the first two novels in the series The The Mediterranean Caper Dirk Pitt 2 and Iceberg Dirk Pitt 3 . In the same way that Fleming used Bond as a Leggi tutto
I am openly admitting that I am violating some rule by reviewing this book because I did not finish it. I read 150 pages of this nonsense before giving up. I purchased it because Clive Cussler is on every bookshelf of every book retailer in the country and I guess I was curious. Here's a few reasons Leggi tutto
I did not read this entire book. I wanted to like it because I love the concept of Dirk Pitt, but I can't get past his view of women. As early as page 27 of the book, Dirk gets angry because a woman has had the audacity to still be in mourning over a husband that died 9 years previously. For this cr Leggi tutto
I was having a conversation with my dad the other day about the first ‘serious’ book I read. You know, that moment when you graduate from The Famous Five into more adult fiction. I racked my brains and came to the conclusion that it was Mr Cussler that first welcomed me, at the tender age of eleven, Leggi tutto
