How Can You Not Like A Clive Cussler Book?
on May 8, 2014
He has characters that laugh in the face of death, that are always the good guys, that help little old ladies across the street, etc. The bad guys are really bad, and the situations always intense. Everything you could ask for in good escapist literature.
For quite some time now Cussler has been co-authoring his books, and also introducing new characters, and they are just as good as the ones he did by himself. The new characters are fascinating, and really brought to life well in the books. In Fire Ice he follows all his previous books in starting with a tragedy that happened in the past, and then eventually tying it to the present in some novel way. In Fire Ice, it involved the Romanovs.
If you haven't read a Clive Cussler novel yet, I envy you for all the great stories you have ahead of you. You always are in a hurry to see how things turn out, and then you wished you read slower, because you don't know what to do now that you don't have another of his books to read.
