The Jungle - Clive Cussler

This is Cusslers latest work, and is from his "Oregon Files" series. I admit that I like his books normally, even though I find his character Dirk Pitt more than a little cliche', then again I think Cussler designed him that way.

However this work falls flat as Cussler yet again teams up with Author Jack DeBrul, and sorry... But they styles are just to clashy if that is a word to feel right.

Cussler needs to go back to his solo writing, and bring his work back up to par. Editing in this work is Cusslers normal... Really good. The story line flows and is interesting, however the plot is fraught with silly cliche's and is blase in it's approach.

Without giving it away, his ending is frankly a dead give away for his next book. I was interested, however not enthralled as I usually with his work.

Cussler gets a solid..


Been a long time sailor.
