First Sentence
Lieutenant Commander Lee Koski clamped his teeth a notch tighter on the stem of a corncob pipe, jammed his knotted fists two inches deeper in his fur-lined wind-breaker and shivered in the intense cold. Read the first page

I enjoyed this book, the plot was good, characters were alright, but I jus think it could have been much better... First, where was Dirk's friend Giordino from the first book? Theres no mention of him at all in this one... But the plot was good, the last little turn at the end I thought was a little predictable, but overall a great read, cant wait to read Raise The Titanic !!!

First off, change that one star I had to give to the no stars this atrocious crapfest deserves. This is truly one of the four or five worst novels I've ever tortured myself with. I still can't believe I got there, but the moment I finished the last page I literally threw the book against the wall, I felt so dissatisfied and cheated as a reader. The only thing worse than, "Oooh, I know where to find the Central American presidents in Disneyland, they must be riding the Pirates of the Caribbean," is the stupid sex change. I'd love to take two copies of this book, put them in lunch bags, set one on Mr. Cussler's doorstep and the other on his editor's, set them afire and run and hide and watch giggling as they spatter themselves in brown stomping them out. The only way to force publishers to raise their standards is to stop buying this garbage. I want my money back, along with the wasted hours of my life.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of Clive Cussler's earlier adventure novels featuring the intrepid marine enginner Dirk Pitt, Iceberg is perhaps one of the least interesting. Why? Simply because this novel is one of the few in the Dirk Pitt series that sports a curiously improbable plot and a fairly disappointing ending. Compounding this is the exclusion and loss of a considerable source of humor in the form of Al Giordino, a regular appearance in the series.
The plot begins with an interesting premise- the mystery of a trawler encased in ice, its interior charred beyond recognition. Who is behind the creation of this ghastly scene? However, with the absence of the sarcastic Al Giordino, the storyline fast degenerates into a stereotyped, dry outing in which Dirk Pitt narrowly survives attempts on his life in his quest to identify the cause of the tragedy.
In fact, Iceberg is one of the few Clive Cussler books in which Dirk Pitt is severely beaten...and exacts revenge (perhaps a tad sadistically) by breaking the antagonist's arms and legs. Compounding this is a set of improbable action pieces that fast become repetitive unlike other of Dirk Pitt adventures.
If for nothing else, Iceberg will be of interest only to fans who wish to experience one of Dirk Pitt's lesser, earlier adventures.

There's not much to say about this novel, other than that the author displayed a complete lack of inspiration, the main twist of the book revolving around a sex change. The plot was predictably simple, characters one-dimensional, I could go on. The more Cussler you read, the more you see that it follows a regimented formula: suave and comic hero, multiple love interests bombarded by macho displays of affection, a near death experience or two, and an unbelievable scheme to save the day...

The title of this book is call Iceberg. The setting of the story takes place near Iceland and Alaska. This story is full of suspense which will always keep you wondering what will come next.
The first reason I liked this book is because it is full of mystery. The story starts off that a ship named the Lax got trapped inside of an iceberg. The ship was carrying very important people. A passing plane spotted the ship in the iceberg. The plane marked the spot and said they would come back. They did, in a helicopter. When they took a closer look they relized that there was a hole that looked like it had been drilled in the ship. When they got closer they saw ashes. They could'nt believe that the pile of ashe could actually be the people on the ship. Someone or something had vaporized everyone where they stood. The captain on the bridge. The cook in the gally. And the scientist in his room. As the helicopter left the iceberg, a black airplane attacked them. As they tried to get away the plane fired upon them. In return, they rammed the helicopter into the airplane. Sending the plane and the helicoper plunging into the ocean. The helicoper pilot and a man washed up on the shore. A farmer saw them and loaded them into his pickup truck. On the way to the farmer's house the man who was riding in the helicoper with the pilot died. When they got to the farmers house the pilot called the police. When the police came the pilot realized the men who came were imposters. They were Russian spies who had connections with the black airplane. The pilot and the farmer stopped the spies from killing them. They called the real police.
The second reason I liked this book was that you never know what will happen next. It is full of suspense.
