A poor start to a great series that eventually derails.

Adventure/Thriller, Fun to listen to on tape or cd
Review by MrsLee
Ugh. Waste of time. I enjoyed the movie, Sahara, for it's good, clean fun and since Clive Cussler wrote the book, I thought perhaps I would enjoy his books. Wrong! First of all, the emotional responses of the characters don't ring true. They are all over the map for no reason at all. The dialogue is not clever when it is meant to be and not subtle when it should be. The adventure was O.K., but the characters as I say, were bizarre and didn't ring true to the task set before them. On top of all that, the author comes across as sexist (I've cleaned that up from my review at home). His view of women, if the characters in his book are anything to go by, is that they are a meat market good for one purpose only. It's not that he wrote a lot of sex into the book, it's just the way he speaks of it and women is so far away from the godly, lovely event that sex is, that it makes me sick. Guess I'll stick to the movie. It was far better.
