Product description

Amazon Review

Dirk Pitt, indestructible hero of 14 previous Clive Cussler novels and special projects director of the National Underwater and Marine Agency (which is something like the CIA of the ocean depths), makes James Bond look like a tuxedoed, martini-swilling poser. Pitt has raised the Titanic, escaped massive volcanic eruptions, ducked nuclear explosions, foiled criminal plans for world domination, saved everyone on Earth from germ warfare and mastered the ins and outs of various electronic gizmos and futuristic vehicles while evading every imaginable form of almost certain death. (Of course, he's also wildly successful with brilliant, beautiful women, but in an admirably circumspect, sensitive-guy way.) It stands to reason Pitt's the right man to handle a crisis of millennial proportions.

When mysterious black obsidian skulls and other artefacts of an exceedingly ancient culture begin to turn up in odd places, Pitt jumps in with both feet. It soon becomes dangerously apparent that a powerful, amoral group of fanatics calling itself the Fourth Empire wants the strange discoveries to remain underground. Pitt teams up with a beautiful red-haired expert in ancient languages to decipher the meaning of the artefacts. They were made 10 millennia ago in a then-temperate Antarctica by a seafaring civilization advanced enough to predict its own destruction by a comet impact. Now the Fourth Empire (whose literal and figurative progenitor comes as no surprise) is predicting a similar disaster in only a matter of months and preparing to take control of the Earth.

Cussler's known for hands-on research--his hobbies are the backbone of Pitt's adventures: Flying, climbing, diving, racing. His scientific and historical riffs that fill in the background of Atlantis Found are the weakest parts of the book--they're Pitt-less, and give every discovery in the book away early. But what the heck--Cussler's not the king of suspense, he's the emperor of non-stop action. Atlantis Found bounces along on a good-humoured techno-joyride and for Cussler's legion of fans, that will be more than enough. --Barrie Trinkle

Synopsis

When a research ship manned by Dirk Pitt and members of the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency is nearly sunk by a vessel from the past, Pitt finds himself caught up in an ancient mystery with lethal ties to the present, matching wits with a malevolent and powerful adversary.

Another great and gripping story by the master of adventure and intrigue. It's a great pity that no a one has tried to get the film rights to his epic works. He is uncountably my favourite author and I recommend him to all lovers of swashbuckling adventure stories.

A great adventure story. This is the first Dirk Pitt story that I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Full of life-threatening situations and continuous action. A mixture of dastardly nazis, secret bases, the Atlantis myth and the threat of the total extinction of life on our planet. I found it to be a real page-turner as I followed the exploits of the near-superman! I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an entertaining read.

Excellent writer of adventure stories. Bought this as my paperback copy was rather tatty from continuous re-reading and I can read it anytime on my iPad.

4 out of 5. The storey was facinating but relied heavily on coincidence and tales of daring do to assist progress.

I always enjoy Clive Cussler books and, in particular, the Dirk Pitt series. The books are always a rollercoaster read with our all american hero managing to beat the odds again. I can recommend all of these books and this one is a good addition to the series. Raise the Titanic was my introduction to books by Clive Cussler and I couldn't put it down. Atlantis Found is up there with the best of Cussler's yarns. A great read.
You need a good pinch of salt with all Clive Cussler's tales - but they're all great fun.

I hadn't read any Cussler, let alone any Dirk Pitt novels before. This one caught my attention because the Atlantis theme coincides with my interest in humankind's prehistory.
Fairly early on though I decided I would need to set my disbelief to one side and just go with the flow if I wanted to derive any enjoyment from this book. Anthropologists will surely hurl this pot boiler across the room and issue indignant snorts at the notion that almost the entire human race was wiped out in 7,000 B.C. Furthermore, during the denouement, the tactics employed to thwart the villains are somewhat farcical when a simpler solution is staring us in the face!
But Cussler never intended to give us an accurate history lesson, and let's get onto the plot! This is a rollicking adventure where our rugged and handsome hero knocks the preverbial out of sinister foreigners with funny accents and discovers the lost continent of Atlantis, almost without breaking sweat. Dirk Pitt is definitely up there with Indiana Jones and James Bond and probably hasn't got far to go to give Superman a run for his money. He's the kind of mega-tough guy who, if his lungs start to hurt when the going gets tough, he spits them out and gets on with saving civilisation as we know it. He always has a witty line in repartee on his tongue too, and don't the ladies just lap it up! In real life he would probably come over as Leisure Suit Larry's more dangerous brother and would be regarded as rather corny by any streetwise modern woman. The womem in Dirk Pitt's world however are invariably beautiful and frequently in need of rescue by our invincible square-jawed hero, which, of course, he invariably accomplishes in the nick of time.
But enough irony and nitpicking! The action (and boy, is there plenty of that!

Atlantis Found features Dirk Pitt at his best for a long time. While it's a hefty read, it's filled with such entertaining character beats, ingenious machines and scenes, incredible set-pieces, and fearsomely dangerous perils that it has to go down as the most enjoyable Cussler I've read for years. Pitt and Giordino are at their charming but lethal best, and the bad guys are truly remarkable; lethal, cavalier and maniacal in the scope of their disregard for life, they're a lavishly created bond-villain's dream. What's more the settings used are terrific and hugely atmospheric. With a vast climax filled with fascinating scenes peppered with furious excitement and action it also has a very satisfyingly constructed climax. The evil plot is one of the best Cussler has ever come up with, and it has a feeling of true dread and menace, feeling like one of the hardest to try to beat that Dirk and Al have ever faced.
The challenges are huge. The bad guys are amazing. The settings, machines and set-pieces are astoundingly dramatic.
A truly epic adventure thriller.
