Reading List Update: Clive Cussler

While I was growing up and spending all of my time reading science fiction and fantasy books I remember my father traveling a fair amount for work. It seemed like he always had a book or two he would pack for reading on the plane when he left and Clive Cussler was one of the authors he read a lot. I remember thinking to myself that I wanted to read those books and I even asked my Dad once when I was 11 or 12 years old if I could borrow one. He told me I needed to wait until I was a little older to pick them up because they were written for adults.

Well, guess what? I’m an adult now. I’ve also never read a single one of the books I used to see my Dad reading. So, while looking for new books to add to my reading list a few weeks ago I decided I should go ahead and add some of the Clive Cussler books I remember Dad reading so often. After a little research I realized he was more often than not reading the Dirk Pitt Adventure books, so those are the ones I’m going to add today.

Pacific Vortex
The Mediterranean Caper
Raise the Titanic!
Vixen 03
Night Probe!
Deep Six
Inca Gold
Shock Wave
Flood Tide
Atlantis Found
Valhalla Rising
Trojan Odyssey
Black Wind
Treasure of Khan
Arctic Drift
Crescent Dawn
Poseidon’s Arrow

I really don’t know when I’ll work a few of these into my reading rotation in the future, but I didn’t want to forget again for another 10 years that I wanted to at least give them a try. My Dad seemed to like them well enough as a way to pass the time and I generally find my taste follows pretty closely to his most of the time on stuff like this.
