Inca Gold by Clive CusslerGenres Mystery, Suspense5 Solid StarsThis was my 1 top favorite of the Dirk Pitt s series that I read Alas, it is also the last book of his I read Life just got crazy and I often had a hard time finding his books You have to remember that back in the mid to late 90 s, very few people had the internet much less a kindle When you think about it, it makes it amazing that we can purchase a book and download it and read it all from a computer You don t have to make special trips to a bookstore or wait for your local library to purchase a book It really is magical And for me, this book was also magical The intrigue was top notch I loved all the characters The mystery and suspense was amazing for me This is also the 1st book my husband and I actually read together So, a lot to love about this one. 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 deserved Is this the novel where Dirk and Al accidentally have sex with each other while thrusting in tandem at a Nogales brothel No, no, that comes later This is the adventure, like Orpheus, where they drift though an underground chasm in an updated version of the river Stix Doing a inverted variation of the mile high club, Cussler invents the mile low club for those wishing to add to their list subterranean conquests wink, wink, if you know what I mean The plot of this novel is, once again, superfluous, and to be read for the authors inventive adventure writing 101 If I am critical of his books, why do I keep reading them Because they are freakin great, that s why The same way carnival rides are great And Napoleon Dynamite And lime flavored nachos If you pick up a seventy five cent copy at a used bookstore or flea market, be pleased Now rip out the first half dozen chapters and begin where Al and Dirk head underground The description of the caverns and the action sequences are brilliant in a pop culture way The author extends this sequence longer than any other I can recall It is pure entertainment After the dynamic duo survive they always do post coitus, no doubt and bring Eurydice to the surface sticking with the mythos here , throw the rest of the book away you ve done the best parts Trust me Oh okay, read it all if you want I don t care but Atlantis Found is better. Nearly Five Centuries Ago, A Fleet Of Boats Landed Mysteriously On An Island In An Inland Sea There, An Ancient Andean People Hid A Golden Hoard Greater Than That Of Any Pharaoh, Then They And Their Treasure Vanished Into History Until Now , The Andes Mountains Of Peru DIRK PITT Dives Into An Ancient Sacrificial Pool, Saving Two American Archaeologists From Certain Drowning But His Death Defying Rescue Is Only The Beginning, As It Draws The Intrepid Pitt Into A Vortex Of Darkness And Danger, Corruption And Betrayal A Sinister Crime Syndicate Has Traced The Long Lost Treasure Worth Almost A Billion Dollars From The Andes To The Banks Of A Hidden Underground River Flowing Beneath A Mexican Desert Driven By Burning Greed And A Ruthless Bloodlust, The Syndicate Is Racing To Seize The Golden Prizeand To Terminate The One Man Who Can Stop Them DIRK PITT 3.5Intrattenimento puro, personaggi belli anche se forse un po stereotipati, interessanti nozioni sull arte e la cultura dei popoli andini precolombiani, un protagonista che si fa adorare, situazioni spassose o intrippanti, appassionanti e coinvolgenti Libro letto per la All Around The World Book Challenge , paese Per 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 historical plot Won t be the last read book written by Clive Cussler. 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 Dirk Pitt character is a cross between James Bond and Indiana Jones Not much emotion, but one dangerous episode to the next in exotic locations. Total brain candy I was addicted to Clive Cussler books for about a year, trying to de stress myself from the honors classes I was taking in high school And I imaged Dirk Pitt to be such a hottie, too In 1578, Sir Francis Drake captures a Spanish galleon filled with Inca gold and silver and a key to a lost treasure As the galleon is sailed back to England, an underwater earthquake causes a massive tidal wave sweeping it into the jungle, where it vanishes into history.In 1998, a group of archaeologists diving in the depth of sacrificial pool high in the Andes of Peru are rescued from drowning in the nick of time by Dirk Pitt a NUMA agent who happens to be on a marine expedition near by Their lives are once again in jeopardy when smugglers with the intent of uncovering lost ancient Inca treasures discover them Captured by a family syndicate dealing in stolen works of art, they are threatened with execution and find themselves in a vortex of corruption, betrayal and death Whatever the situation and the odds..will Pitt be able to save everyone This book is an excellent escape to the world of action and suspense The plot and characters and the adventure are fantastic Dirk Pitt is a great hero, very cool under pressure, tough, determined and resourceful In Inca Gold you also find light romance, just enough of technical details to keep ones interest without slowing down the pace I was again introduced to a bizarre and tantalizing tale with an interesting array of villains, undersea treasure hunts and historic mysteries Clive Cussler has once again proved his talent as a storyteller in this book. 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.
