Hey everyone! Haven’t been on for awhile, I’ve been taking a break from the internet to enjoy some adventures with my special lady fiancée (we got engaged over the summer 😄 🎉). I got all giddy when I purchased and started reading this book because I want to find out if anyone else is a fan of Cussler’s. This is my first time reading his works and I’m overnight obsessed. Most of you know that I’m a James Bond fanatic and for YEARS I’ve been searching for a similar, parallel type story, character, and world. Some novels have come close, but none ever quite like The Mediterranean Caper. Dirk Pitt is an insanely conflicting and engrossing character that I just can’t get enough of. The writing is pure candy, the action nonstop and always innovative, there’s sweeping descriptions of landscapes, it’s all here. Ian Fleming would not only have been proud of such a feat from another author, but I think he would have even sought to collaborate with Clive at some point. Can’t wait to finish, but slowly savor and finish, this one of a kind escapist gem. If the series continues to be as great as this, I’m in for some serious entertainment.
