The books are a great way to spend a long flight -- but regrettably the movies are terrible -- neither Cussler nor Crichton seem to have any luck turning their books into decent movies.Originally posted by JimmyD
I've seen Clive's books out for many years but never picked one up before. I've just read "Lost City" and "Black Wind" (he co-authored both.) Pretty good reading, I just went out and picked up a couple more - "Sahara" and "Inca Gold" - both Dirk Pitt adventures. I see where Sahara has been made into a movie, will have to rent it after I finish the book.
Looks like I found a new "favorite" author.
