** TWO STARS (My Goodreads)
This is the 5th book on Cussler’s Dirk Pitt series, originally titled Atlantis Found, and first one of his work that I’ve read. I think I gave this book to my (now late) Grandfather as a Christmas present. Later my Grandparent’s gave it back for me to read.
Better late than never.
I was really intrigued by the first half. There was history and mysterious discoveries of an ancient civilization. There was excitement when people exploring these foundings were being targeted.
I was halfway through when I started to get annoyed. There was just something about Dirk Pitt (a James Bond style hero) and his friend Giordino that started to get on my nerves. The book started to feel like an old man’s fantasy instead of reality.
