    I have never read a Clive Cussler novel until Treasure of Khan , which is, I think, the 20th novel in his long running Dirk Pitt series My Cussler deprivation is not due to any calculated or irrational dismissal of the author I just never got around to reading him Starting with the 20th book in the series is probably not wise, as Cussler has reached that I can basically write a 200 page shopping list and any publishing company will publish it status, which is never a good thing For proof, I have never read a Clive Cussler novel until Treasure of Khan , which is, I think, the 20th novel in his long running Dirk Pitt series My Cussler deprivation is not due to any calculated or irrational dismissal of the author I just never got around to reading him Starting with the 20th book in the series is probably not wise, as Cussler has reached that I can basically write a 200 page shopping list and any publishing company will publish it status, which is never a good thing For proof, see anything by James Patterson.Cussler also has a co writer for this...

    As a writer, I don t read in the same way as a general reader, so my comments here may not be as helpful as they might otherwise be Clive Cussler is, of course, a well known thriller writer with a large number of sales to his name If Treasure of Khan is representative of his style, however, I have to ask the simple question why In common with most peop...
