    5.5 6 10Some positives, some negatives to this one, mainly negatives though I ve read a Cussler novel before, Sahara, and don t remember it grating as much as this one At times it felt like a bit of a chore getting through this but at other times I was able to knock the pages back The positives The long opening scene about 100 pages was a great introduction to the characters and was laid out really well and was an easy read with action coming thick and fast The plot was half decent and you can t beat a good old treasure hunt with a good guy bad guy s face off in the mix My edition had pictures. struggling for any now.The negatives The stupid conversions Why did I constantly need to be reminded of how many km s there were in a mile Or how many feet in a meter I got used to glossing over those parts as they came in handy brackets but later on in the novel it s actually written into the character conversations If I was talking to a friend and said I was going 2 miles down the road and he said So about 3km then I d slowly back away until I was out of grabbing reach and cover those 2 miles that s about 3km quickly, checking they weren t following me At one stage the editor got it wrong too and seemed to think that a mile was of shorter distance than a km which added to the constant beating of been told over and over Clive Cussler as a character This was a low point for me Admittedly you only learn it s Clive Cussler at the end of the section but when the characters said He sure could spin a great yarn I put my book down and looked at it grimly knowing there were at least 200 pages left.Everyone in the book loving Dirk Pitt far too excessively I think Clive Cussler wants to be this guy, especially when looking at his Wikipedia page The way people were in awe of him all the time and the way women swooned at his feet just made me dislike the main character and Plus I think his kill count must be up there with Pol Pot but nobody battered an eye lid and even the character showed no remorse Constantly reminded Dirk Pitt Al Giordino were long time friends When Pitt said something crazy and people were shocked at his crazy plans and statements everyone looks at him like a mad man Apart from Al who, in case you didn t remember after the 50th time of telling, were school friends and great pals He just looked smugly like he had knowledge of an inside joke Plus surely these plans aren t crazy at all as they always, always work People trying too hard to be funny Stop with the stupid banter It s not big and it s not clever Me, for not completely hating it I will no doubt read another in the future but it s not high on my list of things to get to next or even in the next couple of years I ll cherry pick my way through the series until I can stand Dick Pitt et al no Yes, you read it right.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
