I stacked this as Bailed / DNF, although I did end up finishing it over several tries, but skimming for plot only.

I didn't click with alll the philosophical musings at all, but mostly enjoyed the world building, particularly the glimpses of cats in space! 🐱 😻 ✨

Decided to take a chance with this book. I always see Clive Cussler‘s name everywhere and the premise sounds fun.

This was an enjoyable read but not as exciting as the other books of The Oregon Files. Had interesting characters and unique plot but I love the history in these books more than the information about weapons and equipment. I would like to check out some of the other series by Clive Cussler. I would recommend this book to those who love adventure books.

Bklover Sahara is one of my favorites, along with some of the other early Dirk Pitt books 6d
MrT I only now read the Dirk Pitt novels. Way to many others to keep up with and the quality seemed to go downhill. I'm convinced that Clive Cussler is actually dead and the publishers use his name to trot out second rate adventures stories by other authors by adding his name to the covers. They probably wouldn't sell otherwise. 6d
EadieB @MrT You do have to wonder when the new ones are a bit different. 6d
EadieB @Bklover I'll have to try the Dirk Pitt books next. 6d

This is an enjoyable book, some good history behind it, exciting action as the book progresses - especially at the end, & key themes that threaten the future of the world as we know it. However, this series is just starting to feel a tad formulaic. Possibly a bit more creativity in the writing & structure of the book is needed. Not sure how many more descriptions of cars I can take that don‘t take the story forward. 😂 But still enjoyed overall.

EadieB Nice review! I felt like I had to really work hard at staying interested in this one. It was a lot of talk about things I'm not really interested in but I do like Juan Cabrillo's team members. 1w

Though not my favorite addition of the series, the ending of the 4th book demanded that I break from my monthly schedule of reading to start this one! As usual, it‘s exciting and action-packed. But the villains and their actions are very dark here which made it less fun than some of the earlier books. Looking forward to seeing what happens next though!

rather_be_reading LOVE that calendar!! 2w
TorieStorieS @rather_be_reading Thanks!! It was a great find last year!! 😊 2w

Starting The Valhalla Exchange by Jack Higgins. Can‘t beat the odd novel by Jack Higgins and this looks a good one.

Starting Shadow Tyrants for a Group Read on Librarything. This one Is book 13 in the excellent Oregon Files Series by Clive Cussler, and currently Boyd Morrison. I‘ve enjoyed the couple of books I‘ve read written by Boyd Morrison - The Noah‘s Ark Quest and The Tsunami Countdown (also published as Rogue Wave).

Tove_Reads He was my fave author when I was 20. Loved the Dirk Pitt novels. The he wrote some not so good ones, and I stopped reading. 2w
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads I enjoy his Oregon Files Series, but wouldn‘t say their my favourite books. Only read the odd one from a couple of other series. 2w
