Inca treasure, priceless, hidden on an island in the beautiful Sea of Cortez for 500 years, worth one billion American dollars...only Clive Cussler would have the audacity to make this seem possible, if not probable. As always it has become his trademark in Dirk Pitt novels both the luckiest human o Leggi tutto
Inca Gold is the twelfth book in the Dirk Pitt series by Clive Cussler and the book that introduced me to the Grand Master of Adventure, as Cussler is rightly called. Each book in the series is an independent story and can be read irrespective of the order mentioned. The series follows Dirk Pitt, a
5.5-6/10 Some positives, some negatives to this one, mainly negatives though. I've read a Cussler novel before, Sahara, and don't remember it grating as much as this one. At times it felt like a bit of a chore getting through this but at other times I was able to knock the pages back. The positives: T Leggi tutto
Ja een Dirk Pitt. Pitt , die toevallig in de buurt is als er twee archeologen in Peru niet meer uit een oude diepe bron komen waar zij duiken voor een archeologische opgraving. Deze actie rijdt een niets ontziende tegenstander in de wielen. Er ontspint zich weer een echte Dirk Pitt. Hij raakt nameli Leggi tutto
Anything Clive Cussler is always entertaining but Inca Gold is my favorite. DO NOT read any Clive Cussler books that he co-wrote with his son Dirk Cussler because they are pretty boring. The books he has co-written with Paul Kemporas are pretty good.
This was my first Clive Cussler book and I was hooked from the very first 10 pages. High adventure and constant action.
I bought some cacti the other day and repotted them near the chile plants. The prickly phallic looking one I named Dirk Pitt. Everyone should have a named cactus. Since this Pitt adventure takes place in Mexico and Pitt survives all odds (like surely my cactus will) I felt it an honor justly deserve Leggi tutto
If you expect a story that resembles an action movie with Bruce Willis, then you won't be disappointed. This is exactly a story like that. Nice entertainment, although I admit that I did not like everything. This is not my first story with Dirk Pitt. I've read Atlantis Found before, so I have some co Leggi tutto
This man seriously needs an editor. The bane of a published author is laziness in writing. Purple language, passive language and female characters that react in ways men would like but from a woman's perspective feel fake. On the other hand, he sure knows how to pack action into a scene and this Dir Leggi tutto
Clive Cussler - the greatest adventure novelist and underwater explorer. This book is an excellent escape to the world of action and suspense, so much action and adventure packed in one little book. I liked the characters (especially the hero Dirk Pit and his humor), the mysteries and intrigues, the Leggi tutto
