Back in the day I vaguely remember reading Raise The 'Titanic' –yet I recall hardly any details of it or the hero Dirk Pitt Fast forward to today and I have now finished “Lost Empire” by the same author which left me bemused to say the least The heroes are husband and wife team Sam and Remi Fargo treasure huntersadventurers of seemingly unlimited wealth and resources who discover an old ship's bell while diving off Zanzibar and meet a team of latter day Aztecs who kill off tourists who get in their way Cue the downing of a helicopterThe bell is that of confederate warship the ‘Shenandoah” US civil war ran from April 1861 to May 1865 deployed to destroy merchant vessels supplying the north until bought by the Sultan of Zanzibar damaged in a hurricane and disappeared after repairs in Bombay somehow acuired by an eccentric American whose journals are kept by a descendent Morton named after Stanley who went in search of David LivingstoneIt gets vaguer still with Mesoamerican history and a Jesuit priest who arrived in Mexico with Cortés who witnessed the destruction of the Aztec empire but not before he writes a codex of the pictographs of the Aztec language Nahuatl in which the bell is engraved and coded in a Fibonacci mathematical seuencespiralThough this started well and managed to hold my interest it increasingly tested my patience A so called map in which the Atlantic is labelled the “Pacific Ocean” and how the pair flew from Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and arrived at San Diego exhausted 18 hours later the flight from Sydney to Jo’burg takes 14 hoursIn between the pair bounces to Washington DC then Savannah GA then to Madagascar cue rebels and police in the pay of those Aztecs jumping a paddle steamer back to the US and then straight to Sumatra and the inevitable final confrontation and discovery cue the Krakatoa explosion That bit did it for meOverworked over stretched clichéd with characters straight out of a Disney movie If escapism is your thing go for it but I have no urge to read on

I listened to this an audio book it isn't the kind of book I'd read I don't think it's like a movie I might watch if I want to turn my brain off This book actually is pretty much an euivalent of an average hollywood action adventure flick It's number 2 in a series but it works as a stand alone Sam and Remi Fargo are cardboard cutout action stars gorgeous supersmart crafty uber rich globetrotting adventurerstreasure hunters The stumble upon a discovery that may rewrite the entire history of aztecs Action a plenty this book lacks that certain something that makes reading a uniue experience an opportunity to get inside someone's mind There are not hidden thoughts here it's all spelled out for the readers all desires and motivations too and who cares about thoughts anyway when there is so much action The thing of it is that the book sort of works if you know what to expect and the historical aspects are very interesting as well as the best part of it Scott Brick as always does a good job reading he's really good at these sort of action stories Bland but entertaining enough for an audio book to walk or bike to

Lost EmpireUtterly Through Tanzania and Zanzibar into the rainforests of Madagascar and across the Indian Ocean to Indonesia and the legendary site of the Krakatoa explosion the Fargos and their ruthless opponents pursue the hunt but only one can win And the penalty for failure is death Filled with the dazzling suspense and breathtaking action that are Cussler's trademarks Lost Empire is a stunning new novel from the grand master of adventure. Poorly edited ie discussing the Fibonacci seuence seen in the journal BEFORE actually finding it in the journal with idiotic plotting ok we know the bad guys are going to follow us should we hire some muscle or maybe bring a gun or two Nah let's just go by ourselves and know it all heroes Hey I just remembered I took a single class about Aztec culture way back in college Now we can read Aztec glyphs and discuss esoteric details of Aztec history like we're expertsCussler's original books were great These licensed properties much like Clancy's are disappointing by comparison
