    In the foreword, Clive Cussler mentioned that he created Dirk Pitt to be a character in the vein of James Bond, and he certainly brings that to mind Not in the most flattering way for me though He reminds of the aspects of the Bond films from the 60s 80s I did not like The casual disregard for women their relevance mainly relegated to their use as pawns or sex objects , with a little bit of violence thrown in Before anyone gets angry, you know what they say about opinions This is mine I j In the foreword, Clive Cussler mentioned that he created Dirk Pitt to be a character in the vein of James Bond, and he certainly brings that to mind Not in the most flattering way for me though He reminds of the aspects of the Bond films from the 60s 80s I did not like The casual disregard for women their relevance mainly relegated to their use as pawns or sex objects , with a little bit of violence thrown in Before anyone gets angry, you know what they say about opinions This is mine I just have a b...

    This book is a mix of author fantasy fulfillment and James Bond While that can make an entertaining book it can also stretch the limits of believability Decently fun.

    I will read any book that has the audacity to include an exclamation mark in its title, and Clive Cussler has written several with that distinction Pacific Vortex was, apparently, Cussler s first novel he ever wrote featuring his hero Dirk Pitt, but it was the sixth book published Cussler himself considers it one of his less stellar works, referring to it as a few hours of entertainment and, perhaps, even a historic artifact of sorts in his foreword.Having read several of the other Dirk P I will read any book that has the audacity to include an exclamation mark in its title, and Clive Cussler has written several with that distinction Pacific Vortex was, apparently, Cussler s first novel he ever wrote featuring his hero Dirk Pitt, but it was the sixth book published Cussler himself considers it one of his less stellar works, referring to it as a few hours of entertainment and, perhaps, even a historic artifact of sorts in his foreword.Having read several of the other Dirk Pitt novels, I can attest that Pacific Vortex is definitely not Cussler s best work, but as a pulpy action adventure that pays homage to such unbelievable pulp novel heroes like Allan Quatermain and Doc Savage, as well as nods to contemporary action heroes like James Bond and Indiana Jones, it is sheer silly good fun.The plot involves a nuclear sub that mysteriously disappears in what is called the Pacific Vortex, a section of the Pacific Ocean ...

    If I could, I d give this book zero stars DO NOT waste your time The writing is so so so so bad It s bad enough that Clive Cussler appears to be both racist and wildly sexist based on use of ridiculous and offensive stereotypes, and horrible objectification of women It s quite unbelievable, even given the fact that he was writing in the 80s Add to that the fact that the writing is laughably awful tortured metaphors, saturation of over the top adjectives, inconsistent characterizations, and If I could, I d give this book zero stars DO NOT waste your time The writing is so so so so bad It s bad enough that Clive Cussler appears to be both racist and wildly sexist based on use of ridiculous and offensive stereotypes, and horrible objectification of women It s quite unbelievable, even given the fact that he was writing in the 80s Add to th...
