Grand Introduction

I really loved this introduction to Dirk Pitt, one of the most extaordinary and exciting heroes I have ever had the pleasure to read. We meet Admiral Sandeker briefly and Al Girodino and find out just a hint about NUMA. I have become addicted to Dirk. I recently read Valhalla Rising where Dirk Pitt relives his experience with Summer Moran the first true love of his life where at the end a pair of fraternal twins who are the spitting images of both Dirk and Summer show up on his doorstep. After reading this fast paced exciting story I am stumped. As another reviewer mentioned. When could Dirk have had the oppotunity to leave Summer with the gift of his children when they met only 3 times in the story,never spent any time lying together and then parted in a vast underwater explosion? Admittedly, this works out great for Clive, but doesn't make a whole lot of sense. All the same, it's a very entertaining story and a great read and I just had to give it flying colors.

A Great Beginning

Since this book is officially the beginning of Dirk Pitt's adventures as seen by Clive Cussler, I really looked forward to reading it. It's not as complex as his novels are, but still an enjoyable read. I highly recommend the Dirk Pitt novels and have highly enjoyed all the ones I've read. Clive Cussler is a masterful storyteller, and even though the general route the stories take is similar, each is a great read and well worth the time.

Plays like an action film

Though, as always, a bit unbelievable in parts, Cussler really knows how to make your heart pound! There were various times I shouted at the book and imagined the action sequences played out in my head. A truly fun read!

I read his first - last!

I've now read them all, and I read the first last. Dirk has matured since this adventure. There is a lot more booze drinking and Dirk even reaches for his cigarettes! Perhaps a sign of the times the book was written? However, the excitement and plot development is awesome. It shows, no proves, Cussler had the talent from the beginning.

Great, great book!

This is my first Clive Cussler book. A friend of mine recommended the author. This is the first DIRK PITT adventure. I think it is great for any reader. I read this when I was 12 and I had absoulutly no problem understanding it. Clive Cussler explains everything so you won't be left saying, what? If your 12 and looking for a great book or 52 looking for a great book I would definitly recommend this book. As I said, this is my first Dirk Pitt novel and I look forward to experiencing the adventure of the rest of the books. Happy Reading! :-)
