PDF DOWNLOAD The Eye of Heaven
I ve been reading Cussler books for years and never had one that I really disliked There have been a few in which his co writer got too bogged down in the details but usually the story won out in the endThis book however I considered rating it a one star for Dislike however I do like the Fargo Characters so I gave it a 2 star out of fan loyaltyI was very disappointed in this book It took me longer to finish than usual and at times reading it felt like a choreBelow are spoilersThe plot seemed very weak at bestThe Cuba story line felt like filler material and the trip to Laos was simply a waste of reading time The Kendra red herring felt contrived from the get go and about half way the co writer seemed to be bored with himselfIf this was a person s first Fargo book they d be very confused about Janus and his motivation for everything There was no explanation for how he came to meet up with them in the early part of the storyAt the end of the story 2 years into the Future that whole Ark of the Covenant prank that Sam planned to play on Janus yawnThe female who betrayed them in the final chapters after helping them all along That was too obvious and I was not shocked at all It felt like the typical betrayal from the old Doc Savage Pulps Zolton is a great addition to the series yet he ust seems to be filler material I do wish he d become integral to the story His scenes were boring and felt unnecessary Yeah we get it they have a dog pat him on the head next scene This is an animal with smarts and skills How is he not traveling with them To digress to the Cuba scenes I remember thinking to myself that it ust felt like an odd story line and the whole we need to break into a Cuban Fort and take pictures then escape was too weird Too much for what little it really added to the story OK this is absolutely my last Clive Cussler book He s going in the pile with Patricia Cornwell Jeffrey Archer James Patterson et al who have become so formulaic and obviously for commercial consumption I really enjoyed reading this book I loved the archaeological aspect Vikings in Mexico a viking was actually uenzalcoatl the Fargo characters which of course mean adventure treasure dangerous people pursuing them and life and death moments Unputdownable Trite badly written too stodgy for an adventure novel I ve read all the previous Fargo adventures and this is so unlike any of the previous novels I was disappointed to say the least It was trite disjointed the Fargo characters were so annoying arrogant Too much detail in what they ate the fashion This was the worst Fargo so called adventure by far I was shocked there was very little adventure I doubt Cussler had very little input into this novel leaving the writing to his co author I will not be reading another novel with this partnership again Maybe Cussler should stop churning the books out in such high volume go back to the uality integrity that made us all read him in the first place What can I say Tomb raider 21 Yeah that s pretty close Good people tombs full of secrets treasure hunters faithful friends and a traitor Just replace Lara with Sam and Remi change the continent and you got The Eye of Heaven Started this book after carefully calculating time constraints hoping to finish by 31 December Well what do you know 3 days was enough to finish 389 pages I almost got fooled with the Vikings and the long ship at the beginning But alas no such luck to roam the seas with red beards and skull splitting axes Instead I got this overly loving couple and a hedonist treasure smuggler playing Tom and Jerry around the world There s lot of bollocks and Baffin Island Husband and wife team Sami and Remi Fargo are on a climate control expedition in the Arctic when to their astonishment they discover a Viking ship in the ice perfectly preserved and filled with pre–Columbian artifacts from MexicoHow can that.
