Mehr über den Autor

Der Veteran des Koreakriegs weiß, wovon er in seinen vielen Bestsellern schreibt. Als Techniker und Flugzeugingenieur lernte er 1953 militärische Extremsituationen selbst kennen, bevor er sie in seinen Büchern für die Leser spannend verdichtete. Seinem Leben als Autor gingen allerdings noch Jahre als Texter und Kreativdirektor in verschiedenen Werbeagenturen voraus, in denen er preisgekrönte Kampagnen entwarf. Seit dem ersten Bestseller mit Dirk Pitt als Hauptfigur (1965) verfasst er Buch für Buch und kümmert sich ehrenamtlich um die amerikanische Seefahrtsgeschichte. Mit seiner Organisation NUMA hat er 60 bedeutende Schiffswracks entdeckt und ihren historischen Inhalt der Öffentlichkeit zur Verfügung gestellt.

Von Gail Cooke am 17. November 2014
Format: Audio CD
Just the name Cussler on the cover lets us know that action abounds beginning with the first page or in this case first few words. And, speaking of which those words are spoken by the estimable Scott Brick, an actor/writer who has umpteen film stage, television and radio appearances to his credit. That experience is evident as he delivers a gripping narration of this adventure thriller again featuring the intelligent, charismatic do-gooder Dirk Pitt, chief of the National Underwater Marine Agency.

This time out he’s investigating a toxic outbreak in the Caribbean Sea that may ultimately place the U.S. in danger. As if that weren’t dangerous enough he soon finds himself embroiled in something even more lethal - a power struggle for control of Cuba. The villain here is General Alberto Gutier who is financing his attempted takeover via bogus deep sea mining.

Now, stir in with this Dirk and Summer, Dirk senior’s offspring, who are up against it in Mexico trying to find an ancient Aztec codex.

As is his wont Cussler delivers magnificent descriptions of undersea work, and once again shows that he is one of the most imaginative writers to be found. Enjoy!

I enjoyed this one very much. Cubans, Atzec treasure, looming environmental desaster, it s all in it. Both Dirk Pitts and Summer are along for the ride, Al and Gunn of course are on deck, too. Intrigue, action, on land, on water and in the marine debths, too. I only found the price a bit high for an ebook. However, since we know what good Clive does in real life and I m sure some of his money obviously does go to these projects, I can consider part of the expense as donation, so I m fine with it. If you are a Dirk Pitt fan, this book goes with my clear recommendation to read it.

Dirk Cussler is not his father 28. Oktober 2014
Von Evan Montgomery - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The latest installment in the Dirk Pitt series, "Havana Storm", once again involves the characters that have become as familiar as a comfortable pair of shoes. Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino are in the Caribbean investigating toxic waters. Meanwhile, Dirk's children, Dirk Jr and Summer, are searching for lost treasure. Dirk becomes embroiled in a Cuban political power struggle, while his children are looking for an ancient Aztec stone which will lead them to a large Aztec treasure. The stone is supposedly located in Havana, which brings them to Cuba as well.

Over the past several years it has become patently obvious that Clive Cussler no longer writes the majority of his books. Every book is co-authored, some with more degree of success than others. I suspect that Clive Cussler outlines the general plot and leaves the actual writing to his co-authors. Unfortunately, of all of the various Cussler series' co-authors, it is patently obvious that Dirk Cussler is far and away the worst of the lot. His writing has improved slightly from his earlier efforts, but not by much. The plot is mildly interesting but it lacks the panache that Dirk Pitt deserves and has historically enjoyed.

If you're looking for a classic Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt novel, you won't find it in this book. In Dirk Cussler's hands, this series has sadly become a shell of its former glorious self.

I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

TOO LONG - VERY REPETITIVE - SAME OLD SAME OLD 30. Oktober 2014
Von J. Gorman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read over 90% of Clive Cussler's books and have found most of them rather entertaining.
I was lucky enough to check this one out at the library, because in the end I was not very impressed with the story. Seems Cussler wanted to cash in again on the "archeological find" craze, but with Dirk Pitt and family instead of his Fargo team. I didn't think it worked out very well. The result was half of a Dirk Pitt-type story and half of a Fargo-type story and that didn't carry the day for me.
The Dirk Pitt plot ended up being very simple in nature and was handled with little depth. The "find" plot was very unoriginal. Yet the book logged in at over 440 pages.
Yes, there is a lot of action, but in this case I felt the book was tiring in spots. There is the usual escape after escape theme that has been present in most of Cussler's books. But how many of these can he make interesting or thrilling in the same story? I found myself skimming over the later ones, just to get to the finish. It was not a tight, quick read like his earlier books.
I know it sounds contradictory to say the story had lots of action but was also somewhat uninteresting but that describes how I felt after reading it.
If you simply HAVE to read each and every Dirk Pitt book when it first comes out, try to get this one at a low price, because there is absolutely NOTHING new here. If you have a lot of other stuff to read, don't rush to get this one. Pick it up in a year or so at a greatly reduced price (for the printed book) because you really aren't missing anything.
If you are new to Cussler, DON'T make this your first one. Go back to his earlier works to get a good appreciation of how accomplished an author Clive is (was) .
Comments on this review (for or against) are welcomed...lots of different perspectives out there.

A Classic Pitt Novel 31. Oktober 2014
Von Dominic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Havana Storm brings back the old Dirk Pitt. Everything about this book pays homage to the original Pitt stories--action, adventure, science, and one man against incredible odds. I enjoyed this book even more than my previous favorite coauthored Pitt book, Treasure of Khan. Whereas Poseidon's Arrow (2012) was an enjoyable book, but with several flaws, Havana Storm is perfect in almost every way--like Captain America 2 versus the original Captain America movie.

The plot is a typical Cussler plot, but it is pulled off with style and skill. The main plot features Pitt Sr. facing off against a plot by Cuba to mine uranium from hypo-thermal vents, which has the unfortunate side effect of releasing massive amounts of toxic mercury into U.S. waters. At the same time, Pitt must resolve a power struggle in Cuba involving the Castros and the Cuban Army. When Raul Castro is assassinated by mercenaries hired by a Canadian mining magnate connected with the head of the Cuban Army, General Gutier, Pitt is framed for the killing but escapes. On the run from the Cuban Army, Pitt must prove his innocence and at the same time stop the uranium mining.

While all of these high-tech spy games are going on, Pitt Jr. and his sister Summer are investigating a mysterious Aztec stone, which is linked to an amazing treasure, the sinking of the battleship Maine, and the cause of the American-Spanish war. With able help from Hiram Yaeger and St. Julian Perlmutter, the Pitt kids are able to solve the mystery and find the treasure.

There are some notable highlights in this book. There is mention made of the Oregon, which amps up the excitement for the next Oregon Files book coming out in May. Clive Cussler makes a very Alfred Hitchcock-like cameo as a bar owner in Mexico. It is also enjoyable to see Al Giordino and Dirk Jr. fighting back-to-back against men sent to capture the NUMA ship they are aboard. Finally, Pitt Sr. gets most of the exciting parts, allowing us to see a true master at work. Overall, a very good installment in the series, and the best co-authored book. I highly recommend Havana Storm.

Havana Storm, worst Clive Clussler release ever. 18. November 2014
Von rubyranch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Absolutely the worst book CC has put out and I have read them all. I struggled to finish it. Impossible maneuvers by the villain and sudden unexplained or poorly explained changes in action and fortune. The ending was highly implausible and came together ridiculously quickly. Obviously CC is not monitoring/proof reading, his son's submissions. I do not recommend wasting your money on it as I did.

Not The Best But Pretty Good 22. November 2014
Von Fred Rayworth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Finally, another Dirk Pitt adventure and I wasn’t disappointed. I saw the reviews with a lot of people saying how the writing isn’t up to par and this isn’t the old Cussler and he’s phoning it in, and Dirk isn’t the writer Clive was/is and all that. I’ve accepted that though the characters have grown older and the franchise has expanded with the addition of Dirk’s kids, there are still plenty of save-the-world thrills to be had.

Come on, what is any adventure or thriller about? Saving the world. That’s exactly the same plot every thriller is about. The Cusslers have a certain style, somewhat corny, I’ll admit, but it’s part of the fun. Sure, there isn’t a lot of colorful metaphors or extreme violence like the average thriller out there, but that’s also part of the style. So be it if some people are bored with it. I still love the adventure just like when I first read, out of order, Raise The Titanic.

Havana Storm is no different. However, I did have a few issues that bothered me a bit. Though the story was written in solid third-person, the authors had a tendency to head-hop with abandon, which is something that drives me crazy. I don’t remember it ever being so bad before. Second, they drew Raul Castro as a semi-good guy, which I know rubs a lot of people the wrong way. Given his history, I didn’t think that was such a great move. Also the way the plots wrapped up were kind of abrupt, especially after such a long buildup. It seemed a bit out of proportion.

Those flaws aside, I enjoyed the various chases and salvage operations. A treasure hunt and save-the-world plot is a great mix.

Maybe not the best of the series, but still a fun read. I look forward to the next one. Recommended.
