It may not be classical literature, but it sure is a great adventure! I so appreciate having a creative story like this told in a way that is fun, with characters that have been developed and matured over the years. The book is devoid of unnecessary garbage language, which is refreshing. I highly recommend this book or any of the later works by Cussler.

James Bond meets Indiana Jones

Well I must say that the beginning of this book is intriguing. Cussler sets up the scenes very well and throws Archaeology a curve ball. But that's where the fun ended for me. After the third chapter it developed into a roll play between characters who resembled a cross between Indiana Jones and James Bond. A light novel with a historical twist....that's about all.

    Going on the bottom shelf

    I really wanted this to be good. But.........I could not get into Dirk Pitt. He is always at the right place at the right time, I became very annoyed with his one-liners. What started out as what looked like a very good story turned into a very unbelievable tale of idiocy. The ending reminded me of an old A-Team episode where everyone turns to Hannibal with a suprised look, he leans back in his chair with cigar crooked in his mouth and grins. Everyone begins to laugh, the screen freezes and the credits role. Sorry, this will be my first and last Clive Cussler book.

    Too many 'disconnects'

    Fast paced, but some jarring misses: wearing a dry suit in COLD-water flooded mineshafts with lots of sharp projections; teaching buddy breathing in 2 minutes to scared non-divers; and for return trip 'This time I'll wear a dry suit.' -- (again). Linguistic analysis of symbols = English alphabet?? based on letter & word frequencies???? That was too much to swallow with my SCUBA experience/training and Linguistics work.
