In Golden Buddha Cussler breaks from his formula to write an exellent story about a private spy networks attempts to put the Dalai Lama back in his rightful place as leader of Tibet. The novel moves at a fast pace, as Juan Cabrillo, and his co-conspirators attempt to thwart the Russian, and Chinese military, and intelligence services.
I have been a long time fan of Mr. Cussler's and this book confirms why; in his mid-seventies, while other authors take the take the easy road of formula writing, Cussler continues to re-invent the action-adventure novel.Simply put; As head of Numa(Nation Underwater Marine Agency) Mr. Cussler has no equal!
Lots of fun to read. Pure escapism, and a lot of fun to be had by all readers! I can't imagine anyone not being thrilled by this, or any of his novels. Highly reccommended!

I never thought the day would come when I would give a Clive cussler novel a one star rating. I am a huge c.c. fan and have been for years. Up until a few months ago however I had only been reading Dirk Pitt stories. This changed when I spotted the Oregon files books three and four on offer and decided to give them a try. Glad I did as they were excellent. So I went onto amazon to buy the first one in this series, golden Buddha, expecting it to be as entertaining and thrilling as all of his other books. This was not the case. From as early as the first chapter I knew something was wrong, it just didn't have a Clive cussler ' feel ' to it. Story line was weak and boring. I read untill page 238 before deciding to stop. This is the first c.c. book I have read that has been co-authored with Craig Dirgo ( not sure how many others they have wrote together ). Coincidence? Probably not. This book has not put me of c.c. however I will think twice before choosing one with Craig Dirgo on the front

I really enjoy reading Golden Bouddah and greatly recommand it. At first, I was reluctant to leave Numa and Dirk Pitt but I found Juan Cabrillo and the Oregon ship just a good.
The book follows the same patern as the Dirk Pitt adventures: starting in the past, then jumping back to the present time and bit by bit, the puzzle falls into place.
For me, it's really a book I coudn't wait to pick it up again... and now that I've finished it, I can't wait to start reading "Sacred Stone", the second of the Oregon files.

Although I have already read some of the "Oregon" books, this one was fabulous. The book was all action and unput-downable. I was always wanting to read on to see what the outcome of that particular phase was but sleep often got the better of me. A book I would thoroughly recommend. Total action all the way through.

Format: Paperback
In the new series the Oregon Files, Cussler introduces a new hero, Juan Cabrillo and his team of mercenaries onboard the old (looking) ship the Oregon. But the cast, plot and storytelling is still pure Cussler at his best!

Golden Buddha is the first book i a series of six books (so far) about the Oregon and Juan Cabrillo. The books can be read individually, but your probably better of starting with this, and read on from here.
