Great read. ( )

Silent Sea is the seventh of the Oregon Files series. The book begins with a prologue set in 1941 where five brothers living in Washington search for buried treasure in a cave. Tragedy ensues, along with Pearl Harbor, so we are left in the dark about what was discovered. We then fast forward to modern times where we join Juan Cabrillo in Argentina to retrieve the remains of a lost American satellite. Before long we are ready to go to Antarctica where the ream uses cutting-edge technology and their unique skills to save the world from an evil team of Chinese and Argentinians.

I love the powerful and captivating characters in this series. Juan seems too good to be true in many cases, but this book focused a bit more on his thoughts as leader of the team. You definitely have to ignore the improbability of the team's ability to get out of dangerous situations. There is quite a bit of traveling around in this book, as well as some surprises by seemingly-irrelevant characters, which enhanced my enjoyment of the book. There's also some interesting background in the story which seems well researched.

If you like fast paced adventure mixed with fiction and fact I highly recommend any of the Oregon files books. The author is very good at finding a factual historical unknown and weaving his own fictional story around it. Overall, the story and fast developing action kept me hooked to this one. It's a great summer book to read if you're looking for a great action adventure story. Cussler is a master at blending them both in a seamless way. ( )

Het boek begon veel beloven genoeg, maar het einde was bedroevend.

Het verhaal volgt de gebruikelijke Cussler lijn. Onderhoudend, veel actie, technisch aannemelijk, maar vooral een variatie op hetzelfde oude thema. Iets verloren lang geleden; aanwijzingen leiden tot herontdekking van vandaag; good guys jagen op slechteriken om het als eerste te vinden; confrontatie; de goede winnen. Allemaal heel voorspelbaar.

Over het algemeen vind ik de verhalen van Cussler echt wel goed, maar dit zijn verhalen waarin zijn naam als merk wordt gebruikt om onbekende auteurs aan een markt te helpen.

Nu het verhaal op zich:

Op Pine Island, dat al generaties in handen is van de Ronish-familie, bevind zich een diepe put, die al diverse malen is onderzocht door, maar iedere keer liep dat uit op een tragedie. Op 7 december 1941 is het de beurt aan de 5 Ronish broers om te proberen het geheim te achterhalen. Ook dit keer ging het mis, en verdronk een van hen. De overgebleven broers worden de oorlog in gesleurd.

De huidge tijd: Juan Cabrillo is voorzitter van de Corporation - kapitein van het schip de Oregon, maakt deel uit van een intense en toegewijd team van mannen en vrouwen. Hij en zijn team hadden 36 uur de tijd om een neergestorte satelliet, die in Argentinië terecht was gekomen te bergen. Het probleem is dat de Argentijnse junta een coup had gepleegd en het land onder een zwaar militair regime zucht.
Kapitein Cabrillo en zijn mensen vinden de satelliet, maar komen ook in gevecht met de gevreesde 9e brigade. Tijdens hun toch door de jungle komen ze op het spoor van een van de geheimen die verband houden met Pine Island.

Deze ontdekking stuurt Juan en zijn collega van Argentinië, naar Washington, en naar de Zuidpool, alwaar ze weer in gevecht komen met de 9e brigade, die daar heen gestuurd is om een illegale annexatie door Argentinië te verdedigen. ( )

Lots of action...at times a little too much. Sometimes hard to follow unless the listen is concentrated. didn't enjoy the writing as much but it was still a really good book.Who wrote this?. Cussler or was it really DuBrul? The issue du jour is commercial rights to Antarctica. Apparently Cussler/DeBrul believe it should be maintained pristine as the good guys win in the end....you expected another outcome? ( )

What's It About?
On December 7, 1941, five brothers exploring a shaft on a small island off the coast of Washington state make an exciting discovery, only to be interrupted by news of Pearl Harbor. In the present, Cabrillo, chasing the remnants of a crashed satellite in the Argentine jungle, makes a shocking discovery of his own. His search to untangle the mystery leads him first to that small island and its secret, and then much further back, to an ancient Chinese expedition, and a curse that seems to have survived for over five hundred years. If Cabrillo’s team is successful in its quest, the reward could be incalculable. If not...the only reward is death.

My Thoughts:
Lots of action...at times a little too much. Cussler's novels always begin with a scene straight from a history book that has significant ramifications and often dire consequences, relating to the present day...although at first it may not seem to have any connection. The Silent Sea like all 6 of it's predecessors... is a thoroughly enjoyable tale told with a great deal of imagination that Clive Cusssler seems so adapt at. Anyone that goes for history...adventure...thrillers with non-stop action... and characters that you will quickly come to love and respect will find that The Oregon Files series fits your expectations.
