5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Oregon Files Book so far 16. Januar 2007
Von Archer
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
When I saw a chance to see the guys from the "Corporation" again after their mission with Dirk Pitt I started immediately with Golden Buddha, and was pretty disappointed. "Sacred Stone" was litte better. Storyline is too confused, too many people described in detail. You simply lose track of the story with so many people involved. In any case I decided to try once again with "Skeleton Coast" and this time I wasn't disappointed. Some nice humor, great action, narrow escapes, a storyline like in a good James Bond movie and sufficiently described characters without overdoing it. That's what I'd expect from a Clive Cussler book. A good, fun read like watching a movie.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Skeleton coast 30. Mai 2012
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ein sehr spannender Roman aus der Oregon-Serie.
Es beginnt mit einem Diamantenraub in der Wüste
und endet mit einem Kampf auf einem Kriegsschiff.
Dazwischen Action auf Action.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great!!!!!!! 7. Mai 2007
Format:Taschenbuch
Wieder ein neuer Co-Autor der sich seine Tantiemen an der Cusslerschen Schreibmaschine einverleiben darf. Bei den Büchern "Der goldene Bhudda"und Todesschrein hatte man den Eindruck diese hätten tatsächlich diese Bücher geschrieben so schlecht schienen mir diese. Das hat sich hier geändert, humorvoll und im Stile der alten Romane von Cussler erlebt der Protagonist Juan Cabrilo hier an der ehemaligen Küste der Sklavenhändler, der Kalahari eine Schatzsuche nach verschwundenen bzw. geraubten Diamanten.

Schade das nicht Dirk Pitt, aber bei diesen Romanen ist ja der Sohn Dirk von Clive Cussler Co-oder Hauptautor. Man sieht das beste bleibt in der Familie.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Two Great Writers Equal One Great Book 15. Dezember 2006
Von Kara J. Jorges - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The two best adventure writers currently drawing breath deliver another superb adventure from the Oregon Files. This book bears the distinct stamp of both Cussler and duBrul, which means a great read for us! Though I kind of miss the old format of the Corporation pulling off a multi-pronged heist of some sort, this book's more basic adventure yarn format is a smashing success. Juan Cabrillo is turning into one heck of a leading man.

Like all Cussler novels, this one begins with a story from the past, this time about millions of dollars worth of diamonds that disappear off the African coast. DeBeers investigator Sloane MacIntyre is searching for them when she needs to be rescued from some very dangerous men by Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon.

The Oregon happened to be in the area because of a job delivering weapons to some rebels on the Congo River that had gone awry. The ship also intercepts a piece of a satellite phone conversation regarding a kidnapped industrialist and, ever the capitalist, Juan Cabrillo decides to send in a team to rescue him, sure of a handsome reward. Of course, the same people who kidnapped the American businessman and one of his employees are also involved in an even bigger scheme that threatens millions of lives, and it also ties together with Sloane MacIntyre's diamond hunt.

This book is not for the squeamish, full of lots of violence and starring some really evil bad guys. Typical of both authors, we never turn away from the action, instead relishing every moment of it. When not embroiled in an intense, unflinching battle scene, the book delves even deeper into the character of Juan Cabrillo. He is fast climbing the ranks of my favorite adventure heroes, and I have to say we've got both Cussler and duBrul to thank for that. Cabrillo encompasses the best of both.

You can't go wrong reading Cussler or duBrul, and this book showcases the immense talents of both. If you haven't delved into the Oregon Files yet, get busy. You're missing out on some of the best adventure fiction being written today.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Du Brul and Cussler succeed again! 13. Oktober 2008
Von Paul Weiss - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The Corporation is a mercenary private enterprise for hire by any government agency that can afford its fees. Juan Cabrillo, the Chairman, runs his black ops from a ship called "The Oregon". Disguised as an overused, out of date, non-descript mercantile vessel that's destined for the scrap yard, the Oregon is actually a state of the art war vessel packed with high-tech intelligence gathering equipment, powerful weaponry and a fully muscled set of magnetohydrodynamic engines that, pushed to flank speed, will give virtually any ship on the high seas a run for its money. If you've read any Clive Cussler novels at all, it won't be a surprise to hear that Cabrillo is right over the top - an entirely unbelievable lead character (think Mr Phelps from Mission Impossible on steroids) leading an equally unbelievable crew with uncanny intelligence and virtually superhuman strength and endurance. The missions they accept in Cussler's Oregon Files series are typically of the "save the world from domination or destruction by a nefarious lunatic" variety.

When I reviewed "Golden Buddha", the first in the Oregon Files series, I gave it a grudging single star and swore that I would likely never read another Cussler novel again. Frankly, it was just awful! But after a two year abstinence, my past fondness for Cussler's earlier work over-ruled my reluctance and "Plague Ship" rewarded me with a thoroughly enjoyable read. I gave Jack Du Brul a second chance and I hit pay dirt again with "Skeleton Coast"

A covert running gun battle with revolutionaries on the Congo River, a search for a long lost fortune in diamonds buried in the Kalahari desert, the typical sexy and beautiful female heroine who overcomes all odds against her, environmental terrorism, the miraculous rescue of a kidnapped industrialist from an abandoned prison - the details are actually not important. The fact is ... they're really quite forgettable within a very short period after you've finished the novel. What's much more important is that, unlike "Golden Buddha", for example, which was an exercise in nonsensical hyperbole, "Skeleton Coast" remained (just barely, mind you) within the bounds of an enjoyable credibility-stretching thriller that really should be turned into a rock-em, sock-em Hollywood SFX loaded James Bond style flick.

I found Cussler's brief sidebars on the evolution of hurricanes and the importance of ocean currents and water temperature in their development particularly interesting.

Literature? Certainly not! But a perfectly enjoyable break from the workaday world that any thriller reader will enjoy. Recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen TYPICAL CUSSLER, WHICH IS TERRIFIC 17. Oktober 2006
Von Gail Cooke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Scott Brick, who reads the Unabridged edition, is one of the most proficient voice performers to be found. Dubbed a Golden voice by AudioFile, he's also garnered a Science Fiction Audie and a few Earphones Awards. Gifted and versatile he brings the same standard of excellence to every title he reads, whether it be a mystery, historical biography or as in this case a high tech thriller. His voice is clear, distinct and a pleasure to hear.

The Abridged version is read by Jason Culp, an actor who has appeared both on stage and on television, most memorably on Days Of Our Lives and General Hospital. While he does not have Mr. Brick's experience with audio books, his narrative is worthy and highly listenable.

Fans of Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul know what to expect - an exciting tale with action galore. They won't be disappointed with Skeleton Coast.

The covert combat ship with Juan Cabrillo and crew on board almost became history. But luck was with them one more time, and they escaped virtually unscathed after a mission on the Congo River. Their survival is a good thing for a boat being fired upon. Cabrillo responds to the craft's mayday, saving the vessel and a gorgeous woman passenger, Macintyre Sloane. She's been searching for the HMS Rove which was buried under sand in 1896. Why? Because the Rove holds untold millions in raw diamonds.

Of course, Sloane's not the only one after the fortune, and some would just as soon kill her to make sure she doesn't get it. Cabrillo soon finds that saving Sloane has put him in more danger than he knew existed.

Typical Cussler, which is terrific.

One of my favorite Clive Cussler novels in the past few years. Fast paced to be sure, but I thoroughly enjoyed the non-stop action-adventure written by the master. If you love Clive Cussler, you will love it!!

The diamonds are lost in the endless sand. Never to be recovered until that is...Juan Cabrillo comes along.

As well as meeting a beautiful woman that gets very involved with Juan along the way, who is actually searching for the lost diamonds in the Kalahari desert that were lost long ago. I mean what's a good hero story without him getting the lady? But there is one thing that stands in his way. Where will he get a few hundred men to fight there way back into control of the oil rigs once Dr. Singer's men gain control of them? He turns to an old friend in Africa. An African man by the name of Moses who was leading a revolt against Africans government to reform and spread peace.

But paramedics are different. They are out there working in pairs with just their wits and a minimum of gear. They have to make the first critical assessments and often perform the first life-saving acts. Theyre there to tell you everything is going to be all right and make damn sure it is. And once you get the person to the hospital you simply fade away. No glory, no God complex, no gee, doc, you saved my life. You just do your job and go on to the next. &quote;
