Review: Atlantis Found (Dirk Pitt #15) by Clive Cussler

4 Stars
Series: Dirk Pitt
Author: Clive Cussler
Genre: Adventure, Thriller, Mystery, Action
Pages: 544
In this fifteenth Dirk Pitt novel by Clive Cussler, Dirk is once again saving the world from terrible, catastrophic destruction that would kill millions if not all people on earth; not to mention the plant life, sea life and animal life as well.

As with this authors' other books in the series, Cussler starts off from the very start of the events that will lead up to the present day—2001—and Dirk Pitt.

In Atlantis Found we kind of have two beginning parts one set in 7120 B.C. where we lean of a comet that crashes into earth and annihilates almost all life—sea, animal, human—and the civilizations that had been formed over time, leaving only the nomad stone age people that we believe to be the start of our ancestors. As well as changes the face of the earth to what it is known today.

Our second beginning part is set in 1885 where we get a hint of what will be going on in 2001.

The novel goes on from here with the authors’ usual adventure, action and mystery plot that has hooked me to the series from the very start. Telling of ancient peoples that left warnings of a second coming comet that would once again strike earth and set of the catastrophic disasters that so long ago racked the earth.

A group of people has found these warnings long ago and told no one instead keeping the information unknown and planning ahead so they could survive and when the earth calmed once again, start a new civilization where they ruled.

The plot is of course much more complex and twisting than what I have written but without giving too much away it is nigh impossible to tell more about the novel.

Suffice is to say that Cussler once again gives us a novel that stretches the bounds of fiction and makes you think—what if? While at the same time keeping you on the edge of your seat, giving you shock after shock and throwing you into adventure that kept me reading until the very end.

As with all of the Dirk Pitt books I have read so far; I liked this one very much but at the same time I have to admit while the plot and adventure/mystery kept me entertained Dirk saving the world, well he does it a lot, does he not?

I would recommend this novel to anyone who has read and loved the previous novels in the series and the series to anyone who is looking for a good mystery/adventure novel.
