    I picked this book up at a charity book swap for a dollar After that last book, I figured I needed something fun and easy on the brain I mean, Dirk Pitt is Indiana Jones James Bond water Several Dirk Pitt books have made an appearance as family road trip fodder, because, while basically predictable What, this story involves a secret treasure that s probably in the ocean somewhere Who would guess , it s fun What s not to like So when I tell you that I basically enjoyed this book until I hit one c [...]

    I m only reading this because the main character is identified as Dirk Pitt on the cover So cool There s a big gold statue in the story and the head is carved from a massive emerald But the book cover designer went freestyle and drew a big gold head with emerald eyes.I think Clive had three stories on the go A moon base shoot out, a search for an ugly gold statue with a big emerald head and a Cuban spy drama But none of them were going to make the mandatory 500 pages, so he stuck them together S [...]

    Dopo aver letto alcuni degli ultimi libri della serie di Dirk Pitt, non posso che essere felice di essere tornata ai primi libri, quelli che non annoiano mai.La storia prende sin da subito, l avventura palpabile ad ogni pagina, sia quelle dove Dirk a rubare la scena a tutti, grazie ad imprese impossibili e mirabolanti, svolte in situazioni ad ogni pagina pi impossibili, sia in quelle dove personaggi di sfondo, come il Presidente, sono i protagonisti.Ho apprezzato la parte fantascientifica del li [...]

    With such snapping writing as Bad Guy Dirk May I call you Dirk Dirk replies That s my name , like he is a 6yr on the playground I don t know how to think about this I enjoy Cussler s writing but it can be so cheesy and I don t know if its because this is from the 1980 s or that s just how he writes I will learn as I continue this series.

    I always enjoy the reading of a Clive Cussler novel.

    Jill
    Even for expecting an over the top action adventure, this one took it just a little too far While the plot points were interesting, there were too many for one book A secret colony on the moon the lost El Dorada statue several concurrent plots by the Communists in Russia to attack said secret moon colony, have their one secret manned island near Cuba that was basically a giant antenna with a beach, assassinate Fidel Castro, and then blame the CIA for it secret talks between the Fidel and the Ame [...]

    Dirk Pitt has been beaten to death, swam in the middle of the night across a vast body of water, arrived on the beaches of Cuba with no hope of survival and first thing in the morning he had sex in a drainage pipe WTF I like Clive Cussler s adventures, especially Dirk Pitt s, but this has been the most weird and outlandish one yet The story barely holds together as the main plot points are only connected by pure luck Not the best of Cussler but at least an enjoyable read As a typical Cussler boo [...]

    It just baffles me how Cussler finds a way to take us around the globe with his brilliant adventures I ll admit that these adventures are no brain teasers but they certainly have unexpected elements that render them very entertaining in my taste.

    Larry
    Great adventure thriller Another Dirk Pitt novel that will keep you enthralled through out the entire book Not really believable and a bit on the sci fi side, but Cussler tells such a great story that it just doesn t matter.

    Greg Strandberg
    Another great Dirk Pitt novel, you really can t go wrong with this series This is also the book where he gets his prized bathtub, so it s worth reading for that All in all, just another in the same mold Cussler has a good formula here, why mung it up

    Dan Ott
    Not my favorite Dirk Pitt book Needs Giordino

    Lee
    It was time for some cinematic adventure.Dirk Pitt fills that need for me The eighth Pitt came out in 86, so he s battling those evil Russians again Another fun action adventure.

    Steve
    Can t bring myself to finish it It s making Raise the Titanic look good.

    Neil
    It has been several years since I read this book and I seem to be in a Dirk Pitt kick, re reading all of his adventures but not necessarily in chronological order , but that may change after finishing this one I enjoyed the book, overall It definitely has some far fetched moments that one has to suspend their sense of reality, but this is Dirk Pitt and suspending the natural laws seems to be one of his strongest gifts Well, that and seducing women until he gets married In most of Clive Books, th [...]

    Cyclops, by Clive Cussler, is one of many books in the Dirk Pitt series Cussler does an amazing job including many fantastical elements in his story, yet keeps a sense of realness throughout The story goes from an antique blimp vanishing over the open ocean, to a sunken ship with a priceless statue, to a battle for a space shuttle and a moon colony, and everywhere in between Join Dirk Pitt as he tangles with both the Russians and the Cubans, in an effort to save hundreds if not thousands of live [...]

    Geoff Battle
    Cyclops is a Dirk Pitt yarn which includes not only far reaching places, but far out plots Cussler extends the action across the world to Russia and out of this world in to space too Dirk however is caught up in the domestic end of these elements, with action centred off the US coast and in to Cuba Cyclops has multiple stories cascading in to one anotehr, as each strand wraps up, another tentacle emerges until readers are faced with at least three finales The scope of Cyclops is it s undoing tho [...]

    Zach Franz
    I could only get about halfway through this one I d read about ten Cussler books in the distant past and enjoyed them, but my tastes have evidently changed I d remembered Clive as a good writer, and when describing setting, history, etc he is But there is simply too much detail, and none of the characters act or speak realistically Let me be clear this is about preference than quality The book was written in the mid 80 s, when devil may care heroes spouted one liners every other sentence A mach [...]

    Onur
    The story is pretty nice and interesting Dirk is again being a hero and saving the world and nations again and again, beating the bad guys again and again, surviving hardest situations again and again Well at the end he is a never dieing hero Apart from that he is showing US as very right country but USSR and Cuba as bad I can see he was just acting according to US nationalism and really hoping to find nice story after USSR break up it s a great irony that he was writing for Russian guys as they [...]

    I can t get enough of Dirk Pitt Pitt starts out looking for Cyclops, a missing freighter from the early 1900s that sank with a massive gold statue aboard During his quest he gets imprisoned in Cuba along with his crew Meanwhile, the President of the US finds out that there s a secret moon colonization program run by the US happening and the Russians are trying to take control of the program It sounds like a lot and it is Great read

    Ken
    Must say how I enjoy Cussler working in historical figures to his writing I ve been making my way through the Dirk Pitt series and I think this is my favorite one at the moment This one has a bit of everything in it sci fi, espionage, underwater action.

    Mark Baines
    Standard Clive Cussler fare Good story, well balanced and well written Interesting components, some a little far fetched, but all add to the adventure which just keeps going, continuing almost without pause after an appropriate climax or two Great holiday fodder, pure escapism.

    Darin
    Maybe a little too many plots crammed into one book, but I loved it

    Jack Laschenski
    As usualAn improbable but fascinating plot, 1987 vintage, to protect Castro from being killed by the Russians.The Russians are really bad guys.A good, can t put down read.

    Ashlee
    Enjoyed it just as much this time as every other time

    Kenneth
    Pitt saves Cuba from the Russians.

    Don Mccormick
    Just when you think all is solved a new problem pops up Somehow it reminds me of the old Doc Savage novels.

    Ben
    Entertaining book.

    Willem Van Kalsbeek
    Wel heel erg bloederig voor een Dirk Pitt
