Another one of Clive Cussler's FASTEN YOUR seatbelts and hold on tight because it is going to be a wild ride adventure! Very enjoyable and entertaining from start to finish.
Gabe Redel
I don't read many military thrillers, and this is the first Clive Cussler book I've ever read---so keep that in mind when reading this review. I bought the book a year ago, and, at the time, I was all fired up to read it. But, I didn't get past the first five chapters before I set it aside. I set it aside because I'm a guy who's been training in classic literature. So, commercial stuff wasn't all that interesting to me. However, I picked it up last Friday and read it all in one day. Yup, 406 pag ...more

Clive Cussler and his co-writers seem to write the same book over and over and over again. Sometimes, someone goes right instead of left. Or up instead of down. Sometimes there is an inkling of romance - but, who remembers?

He is very successful, because he writes - or they write - books that come across like not so bad James Bonds movies - except they are usually around water.

Recommend or not recommend. So many people read his books - because they are fun.
And fun can be good.

This is an Action Adventure book, and as such it follows certain rules of that genre. Among those are that what happens isn't necessarily going to be very realistic, and there is a certain amount of "coincidences" that are necessary to make the events in the book happen. In short, Action Adventure is a genre that isn't very realistic, but has much in common with Hollywood Action Thrillers. If you have seen a James Bond, Indiana Jones, or Die Hard movie, you will be aware of what level an Action

Juan Cabrillo, a former CIA agent, is now head of an organization called The Corporation, a group of people who work as mercenaries for the United States government, and occasionally for other people who pay them to do jobs that nobody else can do. However when they agree to rescue the daughter of a businessman who has gone missing in the jungle, they have no idea what they are getting into. The mission goes horribly wrong. They later discover that a member of their team is a spy, and that they

The Jungle by Clive Cussler (Background Blurb from the publisher and review)

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon have undergone many hair-raising adventures before - but never one quite like this.

Jungles come in many forms: there are the steamy rainforests of the Burmese highland. There are the lies, and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination.To pull off their latest mission, Cabrillo and his remarkable

If you're a fan of Clive Cussler's action adventures, you'll love the next installment in the Oregon Files. Here, we're introduced to terrorism, intrigue, espionage, suspense and plenty of drama. Lots of action adventure to keep you guessing on the players. It starts out a non-typical assignment for Cabrillo and his team and ends up, a whole new ball game. From Afghanistan to Myanmar, we're right in the focus on deep jungles in this suspenseful novel. Great descriptive scenery, nice action, and ...more

Like most of Cussler’s tales this one starts out with a bit of “history”, in this case we have Marco Polo witnessing a battle in China where an unusual and devastating new weapon is being used. Jump to now and we have Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon in Pakistan on a rescue mission that gets dicey and picks up an unexpected rescuee.
Having completed that mission they are contracted to find the daughter of a Swiss millionaire who has gone missing in the jungles of Brunei. At this point thi

The Jungle by Clive Cussler & Jack Du Brul

The Cussler franchise continues in this formula book. Like Patterson, Cussler has created a formula that sells books. He starts with a preposterous mystery and then shares the stage with the primary mystery. Eventually they are tied together. This story starts with Chinese history and Marco Polo and ends with a hunt for a modern techno villain.

Juan Cabrillo and the Corporation are back. Blacker than Black Water, the Corporation handles work that the

{SPOILER ALERT} The Jungle, written by Clive Cussler, takes place deep inside the Jungle, near the Great Wall of China, when Marco Polo witnesses an ancient ruler named Khan, defeat an army by using gunpowder and crystals. Cussler then fast forwards to near present day time on board the Oregon ship- a ship that on the outside looks like a nasty, old, freight ship, but is really one of the most advanced ships on the water, fully capable of defending itself. This is the headquarters for Juan Cabri ...more

The Jungle, by Clive Cussler and co-written by Jack Du Brul is one of the Oregon Files series, a spin-off of the NUMA tales.

This novel was quite different than other Cussler novels in that it wasn’t one continuous flow of ‘edge-of-your-seat’ action and was void of most of the technical details that had become, for me, an constant irritant.

Juan Cabrillo, a mainstay of the NUMA series, is running the Oregon, a highly technical and cutting edge vessel disguised as a tramp steamer, operating as an i

I've read a number of Cussler adventures and like Juan Cabrillo and the Oregon ship adventures the most. So I was looking forward to this new addition to the episodes.

What a disappointment. The plot, plot development, dialog, and character development were so poor that I kept looking at the title page for evidence of a ghost writer. I also kept wondering how this book made it past the publisher's editorial development. I'm thinking I'm finished with Clive Cussler books...

“The Jungle” begins with a history lesson as all Cussler books do. This one is set in eastern China 1281 A.D. it reveals the battle tactics of General Khenbish, who is in the employ of the great Khan. We learn the history of the three tents that precede each battle and see the first use of laser and dynamite on a battlefield. We observed the obliteration of walled village because it dared to defy the Khan. It is the independent observer who accompanies the General that is the surprise at the end ...more

The Jungle is one of Clive Cussler's newer works, but it is just as good as some of his classics. On board the Oregon, a high-tech, secret government ship that is disguised as an old boat, the group known as the Coporation has to go through harsh jungles to rescue a wealthy bussiness man's daughter. Things eventually go horribly wrong, as members of the team betray them, to help a terrorist plot to destroy the United States.
This book follows the general blueprint of Clive Cussler novels. Someone

Like a typical CLive Cussler novel, this one keeps you engaged until the very last page. This is one of "The Oregon Files," meaning that Juan Cabrillo and his team, the members of "The Corporation," are being asked to do the impossible.

It starts with a relatively simple task - rescuing a kidnapped kid from a Pakistani village. While there, they also rescue someone who appears to be a prisoner of war. Next, they are asked to rescue the daughter of an accountant who is seemingly lost in the jungle

A typically high-standard Clive Cussler adventure novel featuring Juan Cabrillo and the Oregon team. We all know the good guys are always gonna pull through and the bad guys are gonna get complacent and come unstuck - this is Cussler after all, but his writing skill, the tie-ins with the past and the non-stop adventure will always keep readers like me coming back for more!
Frank
I hadn't read one of the Oregon Files novels for a while. I always enjoy these books and am not sure why it took me so long to get to this one (I have had it on my shelves for over three years). Anyway, this one did not disappoint and was pretty much non-stop action from start to finish. The novel goes from a rescue of a young boy from terrorists in Afghanistan to another supposed rescue of a young woman in the jungles of Myanmar (Burma). And then on to a vast security threat to the U.S. by a me ...more

Oregon file "The Jungle"

I try to read all of the books by Clive Cussler. I particularly like the Oregon files because of the unique settings in the various episodes. There is intrigue and suspense right down to the last page of the books that leave you sitting on the edge of your chair. I find it very hard to put down any of the books once you get into the action. the action and flow of the story was very good and the characters always seem to mimic the real time people that always have a hand i

I have been lukewarm on the Oregon series by Clive Cussler and friend. It has a much more military focus than the other Cussler series. However, this was an excellent book! I was entertained from the first word to the last. It has all the hallmarks of a Cussler novel with clearly defined good guys and evil guys, huge world-encompassing plots, and a flare for dramatic settings.

The crew of the Oregon is a group of 'do good-er' mercenaries made up of former members of the US Military. This is their

At last I finished this book after 5 days.
To be honest, This is one of the most engaging Military fiction I have ever read.
Fast Paced action right from the first page till the very last .
The story line was pretty good and Clive cussler made sure the language was easy to read and he dint use much technical jargons which would leave us wondering what they actually mean. The writing was so good that it literally had me in a trance. Being an action junkie, This book was more than I could ask for.

Except the ending, 1 star to the end. Please reconsider the direction this is headed.

Cussler is a quality brand.

The Jungle is a Clive Cussler book. It's not deep, it's not going to be literary gold decades from now, but it is just good fun. It's a little more toned down than his Dirk Pitt novels, which are basically James Bond based in water, but still pretty fantastical stuff. A group of ex-CIA, Special Forces people make up the Corporation whose base of operations is a tramp of a boat that is actually the fastest, and most advanced boat in the world. They hire themselves out to wealthy people/corporatio ...more

Eighth in the Oregon Files action-suspense series.

The Story
Oops, the Corporation thought they were invincible and they screwed up on that last job. The President has written them off and Overholt isn't allowed to even mention them. Certainly explains why they keep taking on these kidnapping jobs. And it seems that all the bad guys know just what suckers they are for a helpless female as the Corporation gets duped into this madman's evil world-shattering plans.

Betrayal after betrayal hits the tea

I can now say I completely understand why Cussler's books are listed under Action and Adventure on Amazon. It took me all of three days to fly through this one. Action-packed fits this book well.

This is the first book I’ve read by Clive Cussler. After this first taste, I know when I want a heart-pounding action and adventure I can go back to him and expect more of the same.

Even as filled with action as it was, the part I enjoyed the most was the characterization. Each of his characters was uniqu

Another thriller by Clive Cussler/Jack Du Brul does not disappoint. Getting tired of reading free books, I decided that you generally get what you pay for. Based on a Marco Polo discovery, the authors weave a fantastic plot of the bad guy using that obscure information to develop a technological breakthrough to take over the world and create a worldwide Muslim "empire."

I'm always impressed with the apparent knowledge and necessary research that goes into creating the advanced technology utilized

The Jungle, by Clive Cussler is a stupendous novel that is full of adventure, humor, and cunning men and women who risk their lives every day in treacherous areas such as the Burmese rainforests. In this particular novel, the theme of technology advancement consistently occurs in the text as we read about the super computer’s strange human-like behaviors. The author is trying to tell us that the technology that we have created will soon catch up to us and have a mind of its own. If you have seen ...more

"The Jungle", the most recent offering from Cussler and Jack Du Brul, is another fun, day read with the usual cast from "the Oregon Files" and the also mandatory hunky guys and lovely women. It has a satisfactory amount of stuff blowin' up real good and gunfire from behind barrels. It also has the usual twists and turns of international intrigue with a few interesting twists. I will say that for the second time in a Cussler novel - this one from the local library, I have been FORCED to PEN (as o ...more
