Overview

Juan Cabrillo and the Oregon crew  are hired to save a wealthy Indonesian businessman's son from the influence of the Taliban in this #1 New York Times-bestselling adventure series.

Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Cabrillo and his remarkable men and women must survive them all.

A devastating weapon unleashed in thirteenth-century China . . . a daring rescue in the snowbound mountains along the Afghanistan–Pakistan border . . . a woman gone missing in the jungles of northern Thailand and Myanmar . . . for Cabrillo and company, all of these events will come together—leading to the greatest threat the United States has ever known.

About the Author

Clive Cussler is the author of more than fifty books in five bestselling series, including Dirk Pitt, NUMA Files, Oregon Files, Isaac Bell, and Fargo. His life nearly parallels that of his hero Dirk Pitt. Whether searching for lost aircraft or leading expeditions to find famous shipwrecks, he and his NUMA crew of volunteers have discovered more than seventy-five lost ships of historic significance, including the long-lost Confederate submarine Hunley, which was raised in 2000 with much press publicity. Like Pitt, Cussler collects classic automobiles. His collection features more than eighty examples of custom coachwork. Cussler lives in Arizona and Colorado.

Jack Du Brul is the author of the Philip Mercer series, most recently Havoc, and is the coauthor with Cussler of the Oregon Files novels Dark Watch, Skeleton Coast, Plague Ship, and Corsair. He lives in Vermont.

I bought this book because I wasn't going to be doing anything over spring break. It is one of the best books in the Oregon Files series and, for good reason, my favorite. It isn't as action packed as some of the others, but it still has the same signature suspense that Cussler flaulessy infiltrates into his stories.

I have read all of Clive's books, most several times. THis is the greatest since "Vahalla". The story had many twists & turns & I plan to listen to audiobook when I have time. Highly recommended & my only complaint is the epilog was rather wimpy compared to the rest of the book. THis story will require the reader not to put it down until the wild ride ends.

I have not quite finished this one, but the characters are like old buddies. This book is as good as all it's predecessors.

A lot of action and like all Clive's books, makes you think; wow this could really happen. The only reason i didn't give "The Jungle" 5 stars was do to the ending. Without giving anything about the book away, the last 3 sentences kind of ruins it for me. There is a bonus in this book. Clive introduces a new member to the series.

Loved the book. I enjoy every one of his series. Juan and his crew are credible and very entertaining from the beginning to the end. Nonstop action!

I look forward to reading Clive Cussler novels and look for his new releases with anticipation. This book with Jack Du Brul is great. I have followed Juan Cabillos exploits on many missions and always wonder how they can get any better. The Jungle was terrific and kept me guessing. I looked forward to opening up my electronic reader and diving back into the story, just to see where I could go next with Juan and his crew . OUTSTANDING READ . THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORTS THEY ARE REALLY APPRECIATED ! Hal McKoon

The corporation led by Juan Cabrillo is currently on the outs with Washington. But; the terrorist have a new threat which could destry the US and control the world without their help. An excellent fast paced story.

Having never read Clive Cussler before, I quite enjoyed listening to ¿The Jungle.¿ It wasn¿t until the end when I realized it was abridged, so maybe that¿s why I thought it was so fast-paced. But no matter. I thought the twists and turns of the story were good, although the main plot (which would be a spoiler) was nothing fresh or new.

Standard, thrilling adventure by Clive Cussler. A few minor issues, but an entrtaining read. The main issues are (generalizing yo avoid spoilers): 1) It is almost painful to read an accent written out. 2) Cabrillo's trust after being betrayed is mind-boggling. 3) The refernces to 2001: A Space Odyssey and how they come about is outlandish, even for Cussler. Read it to grt caught up in the action, just don't think to hard.

It was just as good as the other ones. I don't read it to get smarter but have fun and enjoy myself before I fall asleep!

I have missed the prior Oregon Files novel and there were some references to it in this book, however this was quite a good read. I didn't notice any obvious geography errors that I have found in some of the Dirk Pitt novels, which I have stopped reading. I look forward to the next Oregon Files book.

The Jungle by Clive Cussler is the 8th adventure in the Oregon Files series. This is one of my favorite series. I really enjoy these stories of Juan Cabrillo. This one did not disappoint. There were times when I was holding my breath while reading. This is a book that was hard to put down. It has a marvelous plot, wonderful characters and lots of action. I borrowed this book from our local public library and I am glad I did. I highly recommend it.
