I happen to have read a couple of Cussler books. While they might be low brow they are pretty enjoyable.
There are eighteen(?) Pitt Novels, I'm guessing 5 bucks each. Which means roughly 100 bucks. You will end up frustrated at the thought of reading 10,000 pages on an iPhone and will quickly go out and buy the whole series all over again. For that money you could almost have bought a kindle and you would be a much happier bunny (with a fancy digital PADD).
Actually...there are 21 now. Cussler's son Dirk Cussler has taken over the writing of Dirk Pitt novels.
I actually paid nothing for the epub files...so cost isn't an issue.
I am able to read the books without issue...tho some of the conversions miss a couple words or misspell them...but it's good enough..On "Atlantis Found" which is #15.
My only beef with Cussler's work....is the shoddy movie that came out a few years ago.....Sahara. But from what I've read....Cussler has problems with that one too.....Only one person really fit the role...and that was William H Macy as Admiral Sandecker....and they made Dirk and Al SEALs....instead of Air Force pilots...sheesh.....
After a week of practicing to sing Dreams at kareoke, I completely flubbed it. However since I didn't have any other songs practiced I randomly wrote down "I want you to want me" by Cheap Trick and had the whole dam bar dancing to it. So to review, I flubbed the song I practiced, and completely nailed the song I chose at random because I had no idea what else to sing.
