Re: Fire Ice
- I have been reading Clive Cussler novels for about two years now. I
have almost read them all. Since I started reading with Dirk Pitt I
definately like him more as a character. I think that the Kurt
Austin books are steadily getting better. I haven't decided whether
it is simply because I am used to Pitt that I didn't like the first
couple Austin books, but Fire Ice is definately the best of them.
Hopefully they will continue to get progressively better over time.
Kemprecos is no Clive Cussler, but he seems to be getting the hang of
it more. Give me a CC, PK novel anyday over a Modern Business
Statistics book. :) That kinda goes without saying though doesn't it.
