Tra storia e mito si fa strada una nuova minaccia che, apparentemente, sembra scaturire dalla rivolta della Natura. Inondazioni e catastrofi marine diffondono il terrore che gli oceani, tormentati e depredati dall'uomo in nome del profitto, si stiano ribellando al mondo così come lo conosciamo. Ma Dirk Pitt sa che questo non può essere vero. Con l'aiuto degli amici di sempre ma anche di due nuovi e inaspettati giovani collaboratori, comincia a indagare e subito s'imbatte in una traccia che lo porta molto lontano dalle prime ipotesi catastrofiche. Il pericolo che dovrà fronteggiare è un pericolo umano, e forse per questo anche più infido e pericoloso.

This is the first Cussler I have read. Initially I was a bit skeptical although the reviews were good. The book cover also did not impress me (believe it or not), so it sat on my shelf for a couple of years when I decided to finally dust it and start reading. It was not a bad book at all. The backgr Leggi tutto
While this was a good story parts of it are questionable. I mean really...the hurricane about tears apart a hurricane plane but a helicopter can fly through it and drop 'em off on a boat in the storm so they can "save the day"? And one of the druid male victims...starts out saying he was a rich publ Leggi tutto
Dirk Pitt and the gang remain one of my favorite guilty pleasures, even though I've fallen a few books behind in the series. The plots are far-fetched, the plot holes are sometimes gaping, and the dialogue is often stilted. (Someone in this day and age referring to something as "heavenly"? Or a 24-y Leggi tutto
A friend loaned me this book to read. I hadn’t read any other Cussler books, and this is the 17th book in the series, so perhaps I would have rated it higher if I had a better understanding of the main characters. The book begins with a new theory of the Trojan War - that it actually involved the Cel Leggi tutto
This potboiler is the sort of bad writing that comes of too much, or too easy success that leads one to think he or she can just knock out a book over a weekend or two and a bottle of Scotch. Just in the first part, there is a hurricane barreling towards the Caribbean heading "due east." This is rep Leggi tutto
I’m the kind of guy who buys reprints of pulp fiction. I’m delighted that Charles Ardai’s Hard Case Crime series reprints gritty novels from that era and I even buy reprints of Doc Savage, Justice, Inc., The Shadow, and The Spider when I see them. I have often lamented the fact that there isn’t anyt Leggi tutto
To Dirk Pitt's shock and amazement he finds out that he has two grown children that he has never known. They are 23 year old twins born to a woman he thought had died in an underwater earthquake. 23 year old Summer is a marine biologist and her brother Dirk is a marine engineer and they are about to he Leggi tutto
2/5 stars. It's hard to tell whether Clive Cussler is actively trying to destroy the Dirk Pitt franchise, or whether even before his son got his name on the cover he was already writing the books. This is the last Dirk Pitt book that claims to be written by Clive alone, but either he's lying or has
I have read the Trojan Odyssey by Clive Cussler. It is a fiction and historical fiction book. The main characters of the book are, Pitt, Giordino, Dirk, Summer, Admiral Sandecker and Rudi Gunn. The book is about a big man named Specter who controls a big operation that tunnels underneath Nicaragua t Leggi tutto
Dirk Pitt is at it again! The catagory 5 hurricane Lizzie is tearing its way through the ocean, leaving death and destruction in it wake. A giant floating hotel is left to the mercy of the storm and the only hope for the over one thousand crew and passengers is (the as always amazing) Dirk Pitt. Dir Leggi tutto
