    This is the 21st Dirk Pitt Adventure written by Clive Cussler and in this case his son Dirk Since I was a wee tot, I ve probably read about half of them These books are a literary version of a bag of Doritos or Oreos They re very tasty and enjoyable while you re consuming them, but lacking in substance when you re done.This one was about a plot to create a new Ottoman empire taht was uncovered by and can only be stopped by Dirk Pitt, the Director of NUMA the National Underwater Marine Agen This is the 21st Dirk Pitt Adventure written by Clive Cussler and in this case his son Di...

    I don t know why I do this to myself I guess I get stuck in ruts and start to crave rut busters Every once in a while, I ll pick up a thriller just for something different, and I should know by now that I m not a fan of Clive Cussler.I ve enjoyed Dan Brown s books, and the Jason Bourne series, but these are just a little too corny for my taste The hero or in this case heroes, as the book has several subplots on various continents quips in the face of almost certain doom, and never seems to I don t know why I do this to myself I guess I get stuck in ruts and start to crave rut busters Every once in a while, I ll pick up a thriller just for something different, and I should know by now that I m not a fan of Clive Cussler.I ve enjoyed Dan Brown s books, and the Jason Bourne series, but these are just a little too corny for my taste The hero or in this case heroes, as the book has several subplots on various continents quips in the face of almost certain doom, and never seems to have a change of mood The mood thing bothers me, as I feel like if thriller y things happened to me, I would probably have moods frightened, angry, relieved, and so on But not the Pitt family Wry amusement is their one size fits all mood.Yes, the Pitt family The author apparently thought it would be a good idea to have two heroes named Dirk Pitt in the same book father and son And for equal opportunity, daughter Summ...

    Le affascinanti profondit marine celano tesori e misteri meravigliosi e inimmaginabili, che sfidano il tempo e la memoria Nessuno lo sa meglio di Dirk Pitt, direttore della Numa, e del suo braccio destro Al Giordino, che al mare hanno dedicato la vita e la professione Ma questa volta c un inspiegabile filo rosso che lega una galera romana affondata nel Mediterraneo da un attacco di pirati nel 327 a.C e una nave da guerra britannica, misteriosamente scomparsa nel 1916 al largo delle isole O Le affascinanti profondit marine celano tesori e misteri meravigliosi e inimmagina...

    Another Cussler book in which my attention was grabbed right from the very start I think that it must be something to do with the historical introductions that the Cusslers use to create an interest However that may be, it certainly worked.On this occasion we have a distinctly Turkish interest with siblings Celik and Maria trying to reassert their inheritance to the Otto...

    3.5This book has lots of action, drama and mystery with a splattering of hummor all the hallmarks of a Dirk Pitt novel Some of Cussler s books are very in depth with regards to its historical mysteries and I really like that, even though it s fiction you can usually feel the research that s been done seep through and makes the storycompelling, however this book is a bit light in that respect.Overall Crescent Dawn is classic Cussler but not standout, one I d recommen...

    SUBJECTIVE REVIEW FOLLOWS Crescent Dawn was a good read, sort of like a comfortable chair we ve grown accustomed to Clive Cussler s storytelling Crescent Dawn captures two main subplots, one aimed at recreating the Ottoman Empire Ataturk banished when he declared Turkey a secular state The other subplot is the recovery of sacred artifacts of Jesus time, lost when a Roman bireme was attacked by pirates while transporting them to Constantinople in 327 AD I think most mystery fans will like this SUBJECTIVE REVIEW FOLLOWS Crescent Dawn was a good read, sort of like a comfortable chair we ve grown accustomed to Clive Cussler s storytelling Crescent Dawn captures two main subplots, one aimed at recreating the Ottoman Empire Ataturk banished when he declared Turkey a secular state The other subplot is the recovery of sacred artifacts of Jesus time, lost when a Roman bireme was attacked by pirates while transporting them to Constantinople in 327 AD I think most mystery fans will like this book, and it was worth the price of admission.SPOILER PLOT SUMMARY FOLLOWS In Search of the Manifest Dirk Pitt, ever in search of the unknown, is diving on a wreck off of Chios when his Aegean Explorer is attacked by bandits and kills two of his scientists at the wreck site He slowly discovers that the wreck is a Roman bireme galley, set upon by two pirate ships in 327 AD and overwhelmed, but the bireme sunk and was subsequently conceale...

    Cussler s novels continue to be pulpish entertainment Cussler always creates an odd web of intrigue including a mystery from ancient times crossed with a modern day threat of globabl proposrtions This time, the story is about a shipwreck that contains something called the manifest The manifest is a list of relics from the Holy Land, one of which appears to disprove the resurrection of Jesus himself Therefore, the Muslims want to expose it, and the Anglican church has already taken action to Cussler s novels continue to be pulpish entertainment Cussler always creates an od...
