This is a great adventure, turned into a Paramount motion picture, but the movie does not do the book justice. You will not want to put this one down, the end will leave you speechless. Enjoy
Once I picked up this book and started reading, I couldn't put it down. It has everything ... heroes, villains, a confederate ship buried in the Sahara desert, a toxic waste spill that will destroy all life on earth unless the source can be found and neutralized. It was so good, I couldn't wait to turn to the next page!
Way better than the movie!
One of the best Clive Cussler has written. The book leaves the movie in the dust.
A fast actioned thriller.
Another good one from Cussler.
Very typical Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt novel. Not at all the same storyline as the film.
Holds interest well. Very suspenseful. Better than movie.
Sahara is an extremely well written book by Clive Cussler. It is a very interesting action/adventure book that never ceases to captivate you with its many story lines and plots. Its characters all have something to offer and don't kill the story with stupidity or lame lines. Also the main characters Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino are always on the top of their game and always have something humorous to say in the light of trouble adding a lighter side to the imminent threat of deadly toxins overshadowing the book
Another Dirk Pitt adventure that will keep you coming back for more.
This was the first book I've read by this author. Interesting story line. Good characters. Haven't seen the movie yet.
much better than the movie!
The movie is good the book is great. A cussler thriller. Dirk Pitt at his best. Searching for treasure Pitt finds the truth behind two enduring mysteries the fate of a Civil War ironclad and the flight of a long lost female pilot.
The inspiration for the Matthew McConaughey movie. Those who saw the movie will be interested in a few interesting plot twists that didn't make it into the film. A classic treasure hunt / adventure with all the impossible coincidences. You'll roll your eyes, but you'll still enjoy every far-fetched moment!
This is definately a guys read. Too much technical stuff for me. I never like the movie more but in this case I did.
Awesome book, kept me intrigued. Can't wait to see the movie now.
So much better than the movie, I love all of his books.
This was the first one of the Dirk Pitt Adventures. It was enjoyable and easy to read. i am working on my second and have purchased the 3 book series sp I canread them in order. I would like to see the movie and put faces on the charachters as through the eyes of the director and casting people.
Best of the Best. Non-stop action. Politically modern
I decided to read this book after seeing the movie and I loved the book so much. It starts out a little slow, but once it picks up it doesn't stop. It's my first Dirk Pitt book, but I will be reading more.
Classic Cussler, a little different from the Movie. Good reading
