The characters are well developed and enjoyable. The plot is fast moving, if a bit predictable, the settings are interesting and you always learn just the tiniest bit of history when you read their books.
Even though the reader can see some things coming a mile away, there are always a couple of surprises to keep things interesting.
Settings changed quickly in this tale. One minute they were here and suddenly they were there. I think the transition could have been slowed just a little. I also could have used a bit more wrap up in the end. It would have been nice to bring back the woman who had started this whole adventure in the first place. I also kept asking WHY they did not keep the security guys with them once they knew this was going to be a dangerous hunt. It did not make sense to me that after security saved their bacon the first time, they would continue on with absolutely no backup, especially after the kidnapping.
But those things did not really detract much from my enjoyment of the book so I still decided 4 stars were warranted.
The author(s) have achieved their objective in capturing the reader’s attention and getting them involved in the story. With Sam and Remi traveling around the world on a Chapter by Chapter (almost) change in locale, the reader has to be involved in the story. What does distract from the story is Sam and Remi’s obsession with staying at the finest hotels and eating in the finest restaurants along the way. I don’t begrudge their obsession with the finest but someone is trying their level best to kill them!
The story is similar to the books in Steve Berry’s Cotton Malone series (similar but not equal). Fast paced adventure backed by some actual history, different locales (cities, hotels and restaurants) and a decoding of the mystery of the actual treasure location. I recommend this book simply for the history and different cities that Sam and Remi visit. While the solving of the location mystery is interesting, the antics of Sam and Remi are entertaining. Good entertainment story.
From Brazil to Jamaica and finally to England the search above and below twists and turns. Of course there is the requisite cameo by Clive Cussler, too.
This was just the light reading I needed in a dreadful week of nasty political news here in the USA.
Pick it up (or download to your Kindle) and enjoy.
Pirate, by Clive Cussler is an adventure novel in the “Fargo series”. In this series unstoppable husband and wife team Sam and Remi Fargo fly out on their private jet to extravagant destinations and finding adventure along the way. The story depicts Sam and Remi on a beach in the south pacific when they stumble upon a clue to a large hidden treasure in the deep. The three main characters- Sam, Remi, and Jack
Sam and Remi are a married couple who travel across the world and always find adventure. They are thrill seeking people who are willing to take risks and are always ready for adventure. They both are very experienced in the water, being scuba divers and are good boat captains.
Next Jack Is an eccentric millionaire who will do whatever it takes for a quick buck. He is a very greedy man who will sacrifice the safety of his team to make money. Also he is very impatient even though there is a race to find the treasure he only cares about himself making money.
This book takes place in a small unknown island in the middle of the south pacific in modern times. This setting is very important, because the the island is so secluded if something goes wrong during a dive or their boat sinks it is sudden death. That is why during chapter 12 they found a dead body near one of their clues showing how dangerous their journey to the treasure is. Also it shows how bad what Jack is doing by only caring about the money and not his team.
The entire book is about Courage and Discovery. This is because all the odds there against Sam and Remi. They found a dead body and did not get discouraged, they were against a millionaire who would do whatever he could to find the treasure, they powered though all of their gear failure and still discovered the treasure and beat jack.
Lastly my favorite part of this novel is the scene where Sam is 50 meter below the surface and is in view to one of the best leads they have when a critical hose in his regulator bursts sending him flying to the surface and nearly ending the race altogether, this took place near the middle of the novel on pg 213-218 chapter 19. This was very scary for me being a scuba diver and knowing what would be going through his head as his first stage hose was breaking .But like any book, this was not perfect, I feel as though the author could have added a few more scuba gear failures to make the hunt even more of a struggle as in already was. Also I would have liked a few more details about the surrounding fish and the coral structures in general. There were no mistakes generally and this book was very entertaining and a good way to spend my free time, and it was great to come home from school and read this book. Lastly if I were to rate this book I would give it a 4.5 stars. I believe no book is perfect and this book is not eather. It is a great book but is missing a few details I would have liked to have seen that is why I gave this novel a 4.5 out of a perfect 5 stars.
