I haven't quite finished the latest Isaac Bell venture, but I am so loving it. The historical aspect is particularly intriguing, and the return to one of my favorite Cussler characters is a joy. The plot is developing very nicely, and I can't wait to reach the inevitably fascinating conclusion. A must-read for airplane buffs.

no way

let's see. An e-book has no paper, ink, bindings, etc., but costs more than a book that does! outrageous! electrons must be in short supply. I'll wait for the library. SO much for switching to the "inexpensive" electronic format.

    Highly recommended

    Once again Clive Cussler entertains us, but this time with his knowledge of flying. This is another winner in the Isaac Bell series although I though this was not as good as the other 3 books in the series.

    Recommend-a good read.

    The Isaac Bell series has been enjoyable. Having read every Cussler book, I feel Cussler's Dirk Pitt and The Oregon Files series are of higher caliber. The Race is still worth the $$.

    Highly Recommended

    I have read all 4 of the Isaac Bell series and will read others as they become available. Cussler is a technology writter and uses the technology of the day to base the Race around. As usual, there is a hint of the future without spoiling the story, but adds a little "sauce for the goose". Make sure you enter the last third of the book with a little time on your hands as you will not want to put the book down. A good read with a surprise around every corned. Enjoy!

    Good Read to distract you for a while

    While I agree that this wasn't the best in the series, it still was an enjoyable distraction for a few hours to read. I always look forward to the next Cussler book, and after so many there are bound to be some better than others.
