I'd forgotten about this author for a few years. The last thing that I remember reading was called something like "Raising the Titanic." (I think).
Like many people , I have an interest in this sea tragedy and what I recall about this book sparked my imagination. I also remember liking the protagonist, Dirk Pitt. He seemed likeable and able. So when I came across Atlantis Found, I was pleased because Mr. Cussler chose another interest of mine...Atlantis. I also selected the book because Dirk Pitt was the protagonist again. I have been a student of metaphysics for many years and the references to this ancient society, its apparent destruction, the crystal skulls were right up my alley. The Nazi theme in most literature is tedious to me, but Mr. Cussler made it plausible. I endorse this book for its effective use of imagination, its unrelenting action sequences and the amusing interaction of its main characters. I am glad to have rediscovered mr. Cussler.

I have been a Clive Cussler fan for years and just read this again after 15 years.......still enjoy the fast pace and love the Dirk & Al characters. The fact that there is always something "historical" (not always real) as part of the theme adds a great layer. If you are a stickler for accuracy of every item in the story you might not enjoy as much since some portions you need to just enjoy the story! In my opinion another great story by Clive Cussler!

Unlike many of the assumptions here, I am a female, age 58. I never felt these were 'guy books'.

This one was just ok. There were many tedious descriptions that were truly unnecessary - they didn't contribute to the plot or the story or were commonly known already. When it would have benefitted the story for MORE descriptions, there were none (i.e. better descriptions of the mummy's they found). It felt to me that Mr. Cussler had to produce x number of pages and was just filling space.

I plowed away to the end of the book. I gave it three stars only because I like the characters. The read was not an easy one as most Pitt novels were.

Dirk and Al do it again! I've followed every single one of their adventures and am proud to say that they are two marvelously fearless characters who I would follow anywhere.
Cussler, while perhaps not sticking to the facts of earth's evolvement, has some grand description that is worth reading and even educational.
It never ceases to amaze me how Cussler manages to take an event that happened hundreds, or in this case thousands, of years ago and weave it into a modern tale.
This book is a wonderful read. It is exciting and contains the usual Dirk and Al wit. This is a perfect action yarn to read on a cold winter's day by a fire - or even on a sunny beach.
Dirk and Al, once again, become embroiled in a conspiracy that might end life as we know it. Once again, Dirk and Al are victorious over evil. To know them is to love them.
If you like intrigue, adventure, and an almost blase attitude toward danger - Cussler's Dirk and Al are for you. Read them all and you won't be dissapointed!

always enjoy Cussler's stories, love his leading men and all the plotlines that always come together in the end, great fantasy just a hair away from facts.

Have read all older books (Dirk Pitt) Hardcover, refreshing to do again with Kindle ... dictionary and notes tremendous addition to the reading experience

This was a great story wrapped around historical facts and suppositions. We take history for granted, especially ancient civilizations and compare them to today. Then, we realize they were not so backwards after all.
I would go to 4 1/2 stars if I had the choice. This is a definite page turner. There are unlikely coincidences, improbable plot devices, occasional syntax errors, and a few erroneous details. But reading books like this is about suspending reality, at least to a certain extent. It is the indominable hero vs the overwhelming odds of the evil corporate/family empire (that has never before tasted defeat) in a battle to the death at the bottom of the world with civilization literally riding on the outcome. And for extras, there is a 9000 year old archeological find which will forever change the way of thinking in the world if it survives. What else could you ask for? If you want reality, watch 60 Minutes.
