Pacific Vortex! by Clive Cussler

Pacific Vortex! (Dirk Pitt, #1)Pacific Vortex! by Clive Cussler
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I've been a huge fan of the Dirk Pitt novels since my sister bought me a paperback of Vixon 03 for my birthday many years ago, it was perhaps the most productive present she ever bought me as I went on to read the Clive Cussler novels for years to come.
I was browsing my ebook apps on the ipad and realised the cloud being what it is my digital Pitt novels were ready to go so I started reading the first one namely Pacific Vortex. An enjoyable introduction to the man of all seasons Dirk Pitt with action and adventure aplenty, initial introductions to long running characters and theme were on offer but as you would expect the novel lacked the complexity of those that would come later yet also lacked the over the topness of the latter novels as well. I may just continue reading the series as a cleanser between my current Star Trek marathon and regular scifi series I am invested in since they do offer some excellent escapist fun for the reader.
