Golden Buddha – The Oregon Files by Clive Cussler and Craig Dirgo – Book Review

Golden-Buddha-by-Clive-Cussler-and-Craig-DirgoGolden Buddha, The First Novel of the Oregon Files is, as the name says, the first in a new series writen by Clive Cussler and Craig Dirgo.

I’ll cut right to the chase and say that I plan to read the rest of the Oregon Files series.

The book Goden Buddha is a real page turner. You are really thrown into the midst of the mission of the crew of the Oregon. After a brief travel through time to set the stage for the book you quickly get introduced to the main characters of the book.

On the Oregon there is a large crew and you never really get to know any of them too deeply. The person that you probably get to know the most is Juan Cabrillo, who is the “Chairman of the Corporation”. This book is mostly about the action, but I can see how over time, and the course of the Oregon Files book series the character development could grow.

The crew of the Oregon are basically a bunch of mercenaries for hire, but they choose their missions based on being able to not only earn a profit, but also make a difference in the world.

So if you want a good action / war movie, the Golden Buddha could be the right book for you.

    Dr. Cussler.I started renadig your books at an early age since you began with Dirk Pitt. Some of them I listened to with the books on tape in the many hours behind the wheel of my truck, No I am not a truck driver. I work on natural gas lines as a welding inspector all over the United States. During recent years I have often wondered what it would be like to read a novel Authored by you of course in a colaberated effort with Dirk and Al ( considering their age of course) Kurt, Joe and the Numa team and the crew of the oreogon all on one New York bestselling novel of course. I know it would take a great effort on your part but it would be the greatest work ever.Joe
