American Classic

Darth Vader is a hater. Crescent Dawn is the most carefully crafted book since 1984. I'm talking about the book not the year. I feel like Dirk is the brother I never had. Clive spoiled us with this one. #dat

I started with the early books by Clive Cussler and thought they were the greatest. But, for some reason, Clive did not write for several years. When the dry spell ended, I was shocked by the change in writing style. Clive decided to reduce and degrade the Dirk Pit series by selling the "Clive Cussler" name and the "Dirk Pitt" name for nothing more than $$$ to other authors. Clive... you ARE Dirk Pitt, no other author can be Dirk Pitt because he comes from you. I can't figure out if Clive Cussler is unable or just plain unwilling to write the Dirk Pitt series himself.
The "Crescent Dawn" book has Dirk Pitt embracing Islam as if he is also a true beliver in Islam. Here is Dirk Pitt, a true American hero from bygone books, embracing a belief system that has a burning hatred for America and Americans. It is beyond me to understand why Clive has let this happen. Guys... just write great books and quit trying to make a political statement!!!
I have seen some good reviews of this book. If you had read the early books, penned by Clive himself, you would understand why I don't like this book. As a loyal fan from the early years, I feel betrayed and insulted that Clive has sold his name and Dirk to other authors.
