Dirk, Al and their comrades work together to solve a disaster and find the person behind it. It's a simple read because the storyline is simple. As much as I have come to love these characters, the story is very typical with no surprises.

Good story, but full of implausible situations brought on my the main characters through obvious naivete and thoughtlessness. After enough of them keep recurring it gets tiresome.

Things were interesting, but the 2 main story lines didn't correspond as they typically do in Clive Cussler's books. There seemed to be less humor in this book, as well, and while the characters could think of incredible ways to save their skins at the last minute, they couldn't be bothered to report their position or findings to anyone before getting captured or hijacked.

It was still a fun read, as long as you can look past some of the negatives.

A very superficial book with little character development and unbelievable story lines. It's a very light read.

As another reviewer said, rather confusing. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I had expected. Although other Cussler fans would find it exciting, I found myself unable to suspend my reality - how many times can the characters save themselves? Also, I would not recommend it.

Typical Dirk Pitt novel. A good read however.

Havana Storm --- by --- Clive Cussler. As usual, Cussler hits another one out the ballpark. As we’ve come to expect in his Dirk Pitt novels, there lots of nautical action. Submersibles; really bad guys; lots of things getting blown up; people getting rescued just in time before of geothermal vent is about to be blown up: these are the everyday ingredients that we’ve come to expect in a Cussler novel. No great character development (do these guys even have a character?); no take-away moral lesson; no universal truths; and certainly no heart-rendering chick lit ideas. Just the usual thump-thumping action that has endeared us Cussler fans to Cussler. Great fun for fans. Its what Cussler writes; it’s what his followers have come to expect. And once again, he delivers.
