A Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer

This is an excellent book. It is the best book I have read in a really long time. The plot is complicated enough to be really interesting but not so complicated that you have to take notes to follow it. The legal drama is among the best I've ever rea ...more

Corsair by Clive Cussler

This is a much better than average Cussler book. First, there are a lot of action scenes that are compelling. Second, there is no ridiculous romance and no ridiculous plots about the world ending. The part about Jesus really made me wonder if Cussler ...more

Transformers by Alan Dean Foster

This was a bad book. I haven't seen the movie, but the book was (1) a little perverted and (2) devoid of any character development. The other really odd thing is that the book is written at a really low level (which makes sense), but every 20 pages o ...more

Dick Francis is my favorite author, and this book is among those I have enjoyed the most. It is about the law, so I am partial, and his description of legal principles seems pretty accurate. This really just has one event and is pretty short, but it ...more

Plague Ship by Clive Cussler

I liked this book and I like Cabrillo as a hero. Another plus: the consequences of the Oregon failing were inventive but not the literal end of the world. My one criticism of this and other Cussler books is that he "tells" too much, instead of just s ...more

Polar Shift by Clive Cussler

I liked this book a lot (it was the first I'd read with this main character). I don't like when the world might end if the good guys don't win.

The Chase by Clive Cussler

Good Cussler book with very few ships. The most interesting part was how the characters interact with a specific historical event.
