Sintesi dell'editore

A Sunday Times best seller

The thrilling first Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler.

Fully armed and with all hands onboard, the nuclear submarine Starbuck sailed into the calm Pacific Ocean for sea trials - and vanished. No wreckage, no signals, no survivors: nothing...until ace maritime troubleshooter Dirk Pitt finds a single chilling clue in the shark-torn surf off Hawaii - the log of the Starbuck.

'Do not search for us, it can only end in vain....'

A crazed journal of madness and death is all that remains. And the captain's final scrawled, fear-crazed note locates the Starbuck's grave hundreds of miles from her last known position! The search for the Starbuck plunges Dirk Pitt into his most shattering assignment to date - a whirlpool of deep-sea mystery and terror - the Pacific Vortex!

Packed full of adventure

This was my first Clive Cussler book. Wow, am I glad to have discovered this author. The story had me sitting at the edge of my seat. If you are looking for a fast paced, to the point adventure, this is the book. I cannot wait to dive into the second book in this series.

James Bond Not

I was looking for another series of techno-thrillers and judging by the book summary was hopeful that this would float my boat, but it truly didn't.

The main character lacks complexity, is frankly uninteresting and treats women like merchandise. He's a wanna be James Bond but really isn't cutting it.

The plot itself is ok, but I was too turned down by the characters to fully enjoy it. I like Scott Brick, so the reading performance was enjoyable, but that's pretty much it. I won't read anymore Clive Cussler, that's for sure.

It's not for me

This author was recommended to me by an aunt who simply loves his work but it really doesn't do anything for me. A typical mystery novel, the first 90% is spent increasing the mystery vibe and the last 10% telling all, even explaining things I hadn't thought to question. The narration is fine though I've heard male narrators do a better job when undertaking women's voices. And I'd have liked to have heard more accents among the characters.

Something I found particularly frustrating was the lack of guidance regarding the time frame. It took me forever to work out the decade this was based in and even now I'm still not sure if it was the late 70's or early 80's.

brilliant!

I'd long avoided the Dirk Pitt novels - thinking they were all based at sea, generally the same sort of plot etc etc etc.
Well, I was very wrong, and I never should have doubted Clive Cussler.. Pacific Vortex was superb. A really intriguing plot line, some great characters, and a lead hero which I think I can really like.
I thoroughly recommend Pacific Vortex, and I'm looking forward to getting to grips with the rest of this series!
Great narration from Scott Brick.

Exciting but flawed.

Starts out with a sense of GREAT mystery. Who, why, how. Wow I thought, this is great. And it was.

Then it changed into a Jules Verneian / James Bond type story, complete with a "dated" view of the female characters and suspension of disbelief stretching action. The female - lets say melodrama was just baad! The action however was competent and the who, why, how mystery questions begged to be answered, so I kept listening.

Clive Cussler's almost apologetic foreword makes me believe that the series will improve. ;-)

Quite good

Austin Powers meets Magnum !
Bit far fetched and remote in time, but very well written and entertaining.

Entertaining, but predictable

As always this was another top notch story from Clive Cussler. A very entertaining listen, with a bit of a predictable ending.

Meh!

Story was OK but not very believable. But I disliked it mainly because of all the clichéd macho bullshit.

too many "lucky" events

Boys own paper might like this story, I did not.
Too many times the hero survived impossible situations, a bit like Richard Hanney and his chums.
OK for light entertainment, but not interesting enough for a serious read by a grown up person.

Excruciatingly bad!

Cliches characters (shoulda known at ‘Dirk Pitt’), ludicrous plot, ridiculous dialogue! First and most definitely the last CC book for me! Best seller list?!
