4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good Nov. 25 1999
By Jeff Edwards (rmgomske@lightcom.net) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was (and always am) thrilled to see a new Clive Cussler book on the shelves...but was immediately skeptical because it wasn't in hardback. As many know, certain authors ALWAYS produce new novels in hardback, and lately, authors like Clancy, have lent their name to paperback novels who are written by 'other' people (OP Center), OBVIOUSLY less talented then they--and of course I wondered whether or not this was the case here with 'Serpent'. It didn't take long to recognize the trademark 'Cussler
Style' and as far as I could tell, it was just a novel about Dirk Pitt going by another name. With that said, I found the book VERY entertaining. I was pleasantly surprised that all the 'regular' elements of a fun and exciting Dirk Pitt novel were all there, including a sidekick (almost exactly like Al Giordino). Now this is only a SMALL complaint, since I have been an avid follower of Cussler since I read 'Raise The Titanic' shortly after it was published. I
have been hooked ever since, and since his 'style' has worked so far, it was just fine with me on this one as well. If you are struggling with the decision of buying this book, here's a suggestion: read it, and substitute Dirk Pit for Kurt Austin, do that every time you read it and TRUST me, you WON'T be able to tell the difference. And for all those who have negative comments about this book, they MUST have an attachment to Dirk that cannot be broken, because this is really a fun book. Don't get me wrong, nobody is gonna increase their IQ by reading this--or ANY other Cussler novel for that matter--but just like his past books, he provided me with several hours of escapism and fun, which is really the only reason why I read him to begin with, I have FUN while reading his stuff. Give it a try, and just remember, Kurt is just Dirk in disguise. Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Pitt but not bad! Feb. 28 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have read all of Cussler's books thus far and have enjoyed each and every one. At the beginning of this one, I was a bit wary because his usual characters (Pitt, Rudy, and Al) were not the main stars. However, I feel that the new guys (and gal) have proved themselves well. The historical information is great and was woven into an interesting and plausible story. One can believe that people like Halcon do exist and ARE in power. I always enjoy the tight spots the heros get into and the ingenious ways they escape. Keep it up Clive!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Cussler Feb. 26 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I liked this book. As a big Cussler fan, I didn't mind a break from Dirk Pitt.I read this after Atlantis (in which I think Cussler indicates Dirk is going to take a break for a while), so I enjoyed the new characters. Dirk does do a brief cameo, but I missed the Clive Cussler appearance from the Pitt novels. I do recommend. Good read start to finish!

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring - no depth, like a shadow of earlier novels Oct. 17 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have read every one of Clive Cussler's novels. This one is very disappointing.
This book made me feel like Clive put very little effort into writing it. Kurt and Joe are replicas of Dirk and Al. Joe even steals Admiral Sandecker's cigars just like Al did. This book lacked character development, the plot was an old one, and I couldn't get interested in it. This book reminded me of a Reader's Digest condensed book - I kept wondering what was missing. Earlier books really held my interest - Inca Gold was my favorite.
If Clive wants to introduce new characters, he should use Gamay as a new main character - she was a lot more interesting the either Kurt or Joe.

4.0 out of 5 stars keep doing what your doing clive Jan. 18 2000
By troy daniels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have read all of the reviews on "Serpent" and I find that most so called fans can't make up there minds on what is to me an excellent read. So Mr. Austin is not Dirk. but the book has a great solid story line. In my own opion Clive Cussler should keep doing what he has been doing. He has taken yet another sunken ship story and transfered it into a thrilling world. With danger, pretty ladies, cameo apperenceas by Dirk and Al. plus of course, a new hero for the new century. I look forward to a younger, stronger numa hero. after all dirk has his cars to drive in his retirement. But I agree lets do it in hardback next time.
