Newly returned from their mission in Afghanistan, Juan Cabrillo and his team aboard the Oregon were heading for the Burmese jungle to rescue a young woman who had vanished – contact with her father lost. The woman’s father knew the Corporation was one of the best – Juan would do everything in his power to rescue her; hopefully she was still alive. The journey through the rainforests was a harrowing one, but worse was to come…

The president of the United States was shattered by the message that ha

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.

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

(Since I've originally read this novel in August 2012, I've updated it with a brand new review.)

In Clive Cussler's The Jungle, the 8th installment in the Oregon Files action-adventure series, get prepared to be blown away by fast-paced action series that had taken place in a post-911 world. It all started, when Juan Cabrillo and his crew mated had received orders to rescue a Pakistani boy from the terrorists. It was no rescue mission, when he met Marion "MacD" Lawless, who had been a prisoner an

I liked the first half better than the second half. (I skimmed alot of the second half.) I don't think this author is for me. Almost too much action and not enough plot for my taste.

'The Jungle' has a good concept for a storyline, and the prologue is intriguing. However, there are two styles of writing in this book, the good and the not so good. I got fed up with it at one point and put it down to read one of Lee Child's books, Echo Burning. The change of style was refreshing. I then decided to pick up The Jungle again and persevere with it to the end. The not so good chapters are padded with irrelevant detail. I personally think that The Jungle is not one of Clive Cussler' ...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

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.

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

This is another somewhat formulaic adventure by Clive Cussler. I do enjoy the Oregon Files as a concept. The super secret private spy ship is a great idea that has a lot of potential. The execution is sometimes a bit off.

This follows the usual gamut for Cussler of historical incident (Marco Polo witnessing a battle) to modern adventure as Juan Cabrillo and his Company take on jobs for hire to give the US Government plausible deniability. Presumably they have other clients time to time, but we ra

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

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...

A great read that will keep you glued to your seat and turning pages. Sometimes, I have found, that books written "With" someone other than the big name author can go terribly wrong, but that isn't the case here. Everything worked well and made sense, and I ran through this in about two days. Just fun reading that won't let you go to sleep.

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!

Juan Cabrillo leads a group of highly intelligent and skilled mercenaries based on the Oregon, a state-of-the-art ship with unbelievable technology at its disposal. It's also designed to look like a rusty old trawler. In the eighth book of this popular series, the Corporation finds themselves crisscrossing the globe from the jungles of Burma to the desert of Afghanistan. They are hired to save the young mentally handicapped son of a wealthy businessman from becoming a suicide bomber. Circumstanc ...more

"Will I dream, Dave?"
The last words of a dying artificial intelligence, most aptly borrowed from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. That quote alone left me with a smile for the remaining pages of the book.

This was the first book from the Oregon Files series I've read, and I can see why they call Cussler the king of adventure books. This was certainly among the best I've read. I'm almost disappointed that I hadn't read any of the series sooner. The group calling themselves "The Corporation," base

This is now a favorite in the Oregon series. Adventure, danger, and a plot that is very different. First you think one thing, then it's something else entirely. It's not normal for Juan to get hood winked, but it happened in this one and OMG he pays for it big time. I kept holding my breath, and my heart starts racing, and then I remember,, It's fiction! I like the way Cussler throws things in that makes a person think about it being possible in real life. I wonder if we have a Juan to save us?
Barb Hansen
This story is very action packed. However, it is one of the most convoluted plots by this author I have ever read. That made it a little hard to keep my interest. The book could have ended much earlier and would have been more effective, in my opinion. Juan Cabrio does amazing things to save people from various evil entities. I listened to this while driving to Michigan from Florida, so it was entertaining.

Never say, "Good luck".
Juan Carrillo, also referred to as the Chairman, reflects upon their last assignment, "This had been perhaps the toughest assignment the Corporation had ever taken on"....

That's all I'm gonna say, you are going to read it yourself.
The whole gang from the Oregon Files are included.
Enjoy!
Tom Hamilton
Meh - it's like everything Cussler writes. A decently entertaining read good for the tedium of a long airplane ride, but nothing spectacular. Belief in reality must be suspended and normal people are suddenly super-human, etc. Like I said, some days you've just got to read the pulp, right?
