Re: Sahara - the Fight
- -I just finished reading the book after I had saw the movie....
Totally two different experiences. They are basically two different
story lines. Not too much in common at all. Similar concept, but the
movie and the book follow two different courses to get to a very
roughly the same conclusion. I can't say I was disappointed, but I am
glad I read the book.

- I did not like the bloodbath in the book Sahara.
However, when I saw the movie, I said, "is that ALL!
Where is the rest of it. It seemed like 90% of the
book was left out.
Also, Mr. Cussler describes his characters in great
detail--physical and their personalities.
Whoever made this movie blew it.
