I keep reading Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt stories, even though they drive me up the wall. This one had ALL my Cussler pet peeves:

1.) Dirk Pitt as irresistible, life-altering stud-muffin. Example:

She was put through to his secretary, who informed her that Pitt was out on vacation and had not return... ...more

This is the second Dirk Pitt adventure I have read from Clive Cussler. The first, Raise The Titanic!, didn't impress me, but it intrigued me enough to pick up another offering from the author.

Well, after this, I doubt I'll pick up a third. Cussler's writing is downright bad, the plot of the story... ...more

I've enjoyed several of Cussler's books, but this one left a bad taste in my mouth with his semi-racist depiction of the Chinese characters in the book. ...more

The Chinese are coming! Illegally! The coincidences of these books are always maddening. A Chinese industrialist involved in trafficking immigrants to the US needs to be investigated just as Dirk Pitt stumbles upon one of his operations while on vacation. Despite all of that nonsense, Cussler's b... ...more

Wow! This is pure crap. I was amazed at how bad this was. It seems to be written by someone older and more manly than myself.

Approximate quote: "Dirk walked passed the room with the loud noise that the orientals called music."

Clive also implies that the Chinese were flooding America with immigra... ...more

This book has Chinese stereotypes that make Fu Manchu look like a Nobel laureate. Read if you need something brain dead or if you enjoy "cabin in the woods" stories and don't mind a protagonist that seems physically young but who has the cultural sensitivity of a patriotic, battle-hardened sevent... ...more

This may be an odd correalation, but I've found that all of the longer Cussler novels are the best. For example, the last Cussler I read was Iceberg, and it was easily the worst of his novels. Now I've finished Flood Tide, a much longer novel, and it was much better.

Was it perfect, no. Personall... ...more

This was adventure at it's best with this Dirk dude being almost comical in his ability to stay alive. We laughed a lot but it was interesting. ...more

Wow, thought this was going to be a good, light action read. Instead it was a bad, repetitive read with a moderately good action story. Bummer. ...more

Okay, I got bored and didn't read the last 100 pages. I think I've outgrown my liking for Dirk Pitt, sadly. ...more
