Cussler, White Death
Reviewed in the United States on October 13, 2011
White Death impressed me quite a lot as far as New York Times best-selling thrillers go. I love that Cussler is one of those authors who still writes a full novel instead of an expanded, large printed, larger margined, 60,000 word novellas that Patterson and his readers think are full length novels. Cussler is churning them out at a rather suspicious rate but if the quality is still there and if they don't start double-spacing his books to make them seem as long as they once were, I will continue to read him. Well that and as long as books like White Death keep being made by him. This NUMA file adventure was a very fun ride. I am not going to praise it to death because it didn't blow me away or anything but there were some new things here and even the old predictable things were still fun to read. I mean, if you visit a place and have a pleasant time, you will most likely want to go back again. Let's hope that the charm doesn't wear off. Oh, just to show that I'm not just rambling about my own opinions, I love books that involve the sea and its wildlife and this one involves fish. Sounds simple? It isn't. There is a crazy plot in this book which was one of those new things I mentioned.
