Review

"Dirk Pitt's 19th adventure...offers a plot as credible as it is monstrous and the kind of exotic aquatic detail that amazes, informs, and entertains." --"Publishers Weekly"

Ok I admit it I am absolutely addicted to reading books by Clive Cussler ever since I dare say it, chose the first book I read by him by thinking the cover looked good.Recently though I think Cussler has gone through somewhat of a rocky patch.He has recently started to combine his talents with different authors and for me it hasn't really worked.Even when writing with an equally brilliant writer like Jack DuBrul there just seemed that the 2 authors combined were not as good as they are individually.This book is different from that as Clive writes with his son Dirk and the book is very fluid and I was captivated from page one.He is back to doing what he does best and that is grabbing the reader on the first page and throwing them into a complex world of adventure and intrigue. I think what helped with this on this book was that Clive decided to dust down the original team of Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino.Don't get me wrong I think his other characters are Ok but these are the two for me that have made Clive Cussler the greatest adventure writer of his time.Speaking of which it looks as though avid fans like me don't have anything to worry about when the Grandmaster of Adventure does eventually hang up his adventure boots for the last time as his son demonstartes in this book that he is more than capable of taking up his fathers mantle. Some people would compare this novel closely with his previous novel Sahara which was also set in the desert but for me that is where the similarity ends.In summary this is Cussler at his best long may he continue!

I always buy any new Clive Cussler book the day that it arrives in stores. The last few years, I've been dissapointed with each new addition to the series. Don't get me wrong, Clive Cussler is still my favorite author, but his writing just seems very stale and fomulaic lately. This book was still very formulaic along the lines of almost all past books, but it had a lot more character to it that made it seem like I was reading an old friend again.

Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino are getting older in the series, but I'm one fan that is hoping they continue to have more adventures in the years to come. The idea of bringing in the kids of Dirk Pitt (Dirk Jr and Summer) seems to be not really coming together well. They are given bit roles and not fully introduced if they are going to be the main characters in future books. All in all, the Treasure of Khan was a fun read, and it was nice to feel like Clive was back writing with more character!! Also, if you missed reading Tino Georgiou's masterpiece--The Fates, go and read it.

If you have read Clive Cussler before, you will know what to expect and if you haven't then you are in for a treat. A good old fashioned escapist adventure story. The only thing that slightly annoys me is the American way of using the wrong tense ie. He shined his torch, which of course should be he shone his torch, that aside a damn good read.

Hooray, after a couple of lost years, CC is back in fine form; the original and genuine Dirk and Al ( no franchise extending pseudo-sprogs here) battle a megalomanic mongol horde with more booms, bangs, whooshes and pings than you can shake your doxa at! Ignore the patchy research ( Lake Baikal hasn't looked like that in 30 years, sadly), suspend your disbelief and enjoy the ride!

I love reading Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt adventures. I don't get much time to read, but when I do these are what I reach for. The moment you start you are into action, following the characters falling from one death defining feat to the next. Would highly recommend. Also if you haven't looked at the Oregon files. They're a must, big thumbs up from me. Just ashame there aren't many of them.

As the book opens, Kublai Khan's forces are preparing to subdue Japan. But a storm intervenes and the invading fleet is destroyed. One of the ships makes it unexpectedly to a faraway isle . . . and eventually returns. Next, as the Japanese march through China in 1937, a British archeologist finds a clue to the burial site of Kublai Khan. From there, Dirk Pitt, Sr. and Al Giordino are on Lake Baikal in Siberia helping to measure lake currents when an underwater avalanche sets off a rolling tower of water that threatens a boat that doesn't hear the warning to clear the lake. Dirk and Al ride the rescue . . . but find themselves facing new threats before the next dawn. These new troubles lead towards Mongolia and a rendezvous with history. Along the way, the world faces another crisis that only Dirk and Al can solve. Before the book is over, you'll travel to the Middle East, across the Gobi desert, through the ocean next to the big island of Hawaii, and into the corridors of power in Washington, D.C.

Here's the good news: Treasure of Khan is mostly about Dirk Senior and Al Giordino rather than Dirk Junior and Summer. Here's the bad news: The swagger is mostly missing.

Treasure of Khan follows the proven Clive Cussler recipe for a Dirk Pitt Adventure, but in a coolly scientific way, rather than with passion. The physical action is often strangely cerebral rather than gut-wrenching. That's the main disappointment in this book.
