  1. 5.5 6 10Some positives, some negatives to this one, mainly negatives though I ve read a Cussler novel before, Sahara, and don t remember it grating as much as this one At times it felt like a bit of a chore getting through this but at other times I was able to knock the pages back The positives The long opening scene about 100 pages was a great introduction to the characters and was laid out really well and was an easy read with action coming thick and fast The plot was half decent and you can t [...]

  2. Anything Clive Cussler is always entertaining but Inca Gold is my favorite DO NOT read any Clive Cussler books that he co wrote with his son Dirk Cussler because they are pretty boring The books he has co written with Paul Kemporas are pretty good.

  3. This was my first Clive Cussler book and I was hooked from the very first 10 pages High adventure and constant action.

  4. I bought some cacti the other day and repotted them near the chile plants The prickly phallic looking one I named Dirk Pitt Everyone should have a named cactus Since this Pitt adventure takes place in Mexico and Pitt survives all odds like surely my cactus will I felt it an honor justly deserved Is this the novel where Dirk and Al accidentally have sex with each other while thrusting in tandem at a Nogales brothel No, no, that comes later This is the adventure, like Orpheus, where they drift tho [...]

  5. This man seriously needs an editor The bane of a published author is laziness in writing Purple language, passive language and female characters that react in ways men would like but from a woman s perspective feel fake On the other hand, he sure knows how to pack action into a scene and this Dirk Pitt character is a cross between James Bond and Indiana Jones Not much emotion, but one dangerous episode to the next in exotic locations.

  6. Clive Cussler the greatest adventure novelist and underwater explorer This book is an excellent escape to the world of action and suspense, so much action and adventure packed in one little book I liked the characters especially the hero Dirk Pit and his humor , the mysteries and intrigues, the historical plot Won t be the last read book written by Clive Cussler.

  7. Total brain candy I was addicted to Clive Cussler books for about a year, trying to de stress myself from the honors classes I was taking in high school And I imaged Dirk Pitt to be such a hottie, too

  8. In 1578, Sir Francis Drake captures a Spanish galleon filled with Inca gold and silver and a key to a lost treasure As the galleon is sailed back to England, an underwater earthquake causes a massive tidal wave sweeping it into the jungle, where it vanishes into history.In 1998, a group of archaeologists diving in the depth of sacrificial pool high in the Andes of Peru are rescued from drowning in the nick of time by Dirk Pitt a NUMA agent who happens to be on a marine expedition near by Their l [...]

  9. This novel is an interesting story about Dirk Pitt, a NUMA agent who saves two archeologists from drowning They are searching for an ancient Inca treasure containing a ton of silver and gold However, the situation turns ugly when a family syndicate who deals with stealing ancient works of art, gets their hand on the ancient treasure Pitt and his group of archeologists are forced to go into action and do whatever is neccessary to get the treasure back This book is full of suspense and action, and [...]

  10. I am a big fan of Clive Cussler s Dirk Pitt adventures He is your natural hero, and this book doesn t disappoint There are a couple of scenes where you know Pitt will come to the rescue at the last minute, but when he does you are still filled with that surge of pride This book follows Cussler s later style with an historic story followed by the present day narrative However, in this book, the present day feels a little split in two, which isn t a bad thing, but sometimes you feel that there was [...]

  11. Ja een Dirk Pitt Pitt , die toevallig in de buurt is als er twee archeologen in Peru niet meer uit een oude diepe bron komen waar zij duiken voor een archeologische opgraving Deze actie rijdt een niets ontziende tegenstander in de wielen Er ontspint zich weer een echte Dirk Pitt Hij raakt namelijk verstikt in de netten van een bende gewelddadige kunstsmokkelaars die de legendarische schatten van de Inka s op het spoor zijn.

  12. This is the 1st Clive Cussler novel that I ve read and to date, its the best one that I ve read I ve read 5 or 6 so far Dirk Pitt is a true hero I love this book and I could read it again This book has it all

  13. When I was reading this novel I kept thinking that this was porn for men the way romance novels are porn for women It s not good writing but it clearly provides something it s audience wants or it wouldn t be a best seller.The writing was surprising bad The first Clive Cussler book I read was nonfiction, The Sea Hunters II I was impressed enough by it that I was looking forward to this novel But in first chapters I found clunky writing, idealized wish fulfillment characters, and long fetishizing [...]

  14. Weer een aardig boek, volgens het bekende Cussler stramien Stukje uit de oudheid, daarna sprong naar het heden Dirk red een vrouw uit handen van boeven, en uiteindelijk ook nog eens een grote goudschat Ondertussen helpt hij ook nog eens mee om een smokkelbende op te rollen.Wat een beetje irritant begint te worden is dat Clive Cussler zich zelf steeds in een verhaal schrijft De ene keer als eigenaar van een bijzonder jacht, dan weer als een bar eigenaar.O, en Pitt krijgt een ondergrondse rivier n [...]

  15. Time for another Clive Cussler Wednesday When a team of archaeologists are trapped in a well by artifact smugglers, Dirk Pitt just happens to be in the area After rescuing the scientists and killing a whole lot of bandits, Pitt finds evidence of a huge cache of Inca Gold Unfortunately, the artifact smugglers also know about it, and the two groups engage in a battle of wits to get to the treasure first.One of the best Dirk Pitt books I ve read thus far.

  16. Not bad I read Cussler for a bit of escapism his books are rarely thought provoking or particularly deep, but they are generally enjoyable My big gripe with this one is the length The first 300 pages were great the next hundred were a bit tiresome the last 120 were like Pitt s river adventure a little too long, but no turning back It s a pity when a book starts out as an adventure and ends up as a chore Not a particularly unsavoury chore, but a chore all the same.

  17. The story starts with an expedition in Peru gone wrong the 1st 50 to 100 pages had all elements of a good treasure hunt mystery novel but once that intial sequence was over, there was a big drop in pace.There were some good sequences in the middle like the FBI raid on the Zolars but it was just too slow for me in middle It picks up page towards in the end but I already kind of figured that Pitt is going to win against all odds

  18. This book is awesome, just awesome 600 pages of addictive page turning adventures that left me smiling ear to ear This was a good follow on from Sahara, it s up there as one of my favourites.

  19. Very predictable, very implausible, but great action scenes anyway Typical Cussler brain candy that didn t require much thought to read quickly.

  20. October 24, 2014Just a brief thought while reading in the earlier books, it was said that Dirk was well into his mid 40s in this book he is described as being in his lower forties yet the main story takes place nearly ten years after the events described in Raise the Titanic , Vixen 3 , and Night Probe I did not see any references to having been a pilot in Vietnam, so perhaps the author is hoping audiences overlook this changing of Dirk s autobiography.I did find it funny that when Dirk and Shan [...]

  21. It s a long book of mediocre quality and had a low priority in my round robin reading list so it took me a few months to read this one I don t usually read adventure based fiction so I don t have other sources for a comparison There is a lot of action and adventure going on and it s obvious that the author did his fair share of research and documentation but I don t think that it s meant for people like me who like to overthink, I think it s rather intended for people that just want to kill some [...]

  22. One of my most inspiring English teachers in high school had recommended Clive Cussler as one of the many authors that I should check out at some point It took me about 8 years, but I finally got around to that part of my bookshelf, and what a treat it was.I didn t learn that Inca Gold was the 12th installment in the ongoing adventure series helmed by larger than life hero Dirk Pitt until after I polished this beauty off, but that alone speaks to how well written this novel is There are plenty o [...]

  23. Clive Cussler s Inca Gold brings the reader on a thrilling adventure with the main character, Dirk Pitt, as he searches for one of the greatest treasures ever lost With a new obstacle or danger around every corner, readers can t help but keep the pages turning Also, with surprising plot twists, the reader learns that the first solution presented is not always the best one While this book was exciting and entertaining, there were some aspects where the predictability exhausted some of the energy [...]

  24. After reading Inca Gold by Clive Cussler, I give the book a 1 out of 5 stars Nothing personal to Clive Cussler, but I honestly thought this was the worst book I think I have ever read The reason I picked the book was because I was running out of time to finish my AR for school, and this had the highest book level that I could find and looked interesting, but I was wrong Plus, I felt like the treasure hunt story based on a real event was a cool idea, yet the story overall was just hard to follow [...]

  25. Dirk Pitt is an amalgamation John D MacDonald s Travis McGee, as well as the inspiration for characters like Randy Wayne White s Doc Ford, Matt Nix s Michael Westen and Lee David Zlotoff s MacGyver He is a character that unlike MacGyver has no qualms about using a gun but he also relies on his wit to solve problems.Inca Gold is the 12th novel in a series created by Clive Cussler Dirk Pitt and Al Giordino, a veteran team of marine salvage divers, volunteer their services to aid in the rescue of t [...]

  26. May have some spoilers A Dirk Pitt favorite This twelve installment of the Dirk Pitt series gives us every thing we ve come to expect but Dirk Pitt comes into the book pretty quick in this installment, unlike the others where we had to read quite a bit before he put in an appearance In this one we get our back ground info of how in 1578 Sir Francis Drake captures the Spanish Galleon filled with Inca gold, and the key to a long lost treasure As the ships split to take the treasures home to Engla [...]

  27. Dirk Pitt is getting a little old for this stuff now Cussler even acknowledges the fact by stating that Pitt is on the lower end of forty But just because the bruises may last a little longer doesn t mean he and Al Giordino aren t up for whatever adventure comes their way Much like Treasure, this story involves an enormous cache of hidden loot that is desirable not only for its monetary value, but also for the artifacts it contains and the history it represents However, except for that similarit [...]

  28. The book I chose for my May book review was Inca Gold by Clive Cussler The main character, Dirk Pitt, and his best friend Al Giordino are called on a mission to recue two American archaeologists from a sacrificial pool This is only the beginning Behind the plot to kill the archaeologists is a crime family of illegal art and ancient artifact stealers This family, the Zolars, also want the ancient Chachapoyan treasure Pitt and Giordino not only have to stop the Zolars, who will kill to get what th [...]

  29. This is not Cussler gold, written some time ago and lacking the finesse that is apparent in the recent books I ve read This said, the effort made to create a complex and creative plot is evident here, contrasting positively against the slick production style which comes through in recent books The usual premise of an archeological treasure gone missing and awaiting discovery in modern times by a gallant hero lest a malevolent organization use it for bad stuff is the core of course I enjoy thi [...]
