    1. I became fascinated by the history of Attila the Hun. Could I be related to him too? :)Gread adventure novel. Picked it up in an airport bookstore as I didn't have anything ready at home to take with me.Good pacing, interesting history. Main characters were ok, but not amazing.About MeFor those new to me or my reviews here's the scoop: I read A LOT. I write A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review goes on , and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at thisismytruthnow, where you' [...]


    2. When I finished the final page of The Tombs by Clive Cussler I had a sad epiphany, a suspicion which had been brewing for some time before crystallizing.Cussler is now a book factory. I've known it for a while, but didn't really care. I've been reading his books since I was in high school and enjoyed them all. The Tombs is no exception. Plenty of action, exotic locations, perilous situations and interesting characters plus the guaranteed cameo appearance by the author himself in every book. But [...]


    3. In a word: disappointing.I'm a Cussler fan of 20+ years, but sadly I think it's time for him to retire his fountain pen. More and more "Cussler Books" are "with co-author", and based on quality of writing, story development, and historical research and interesting plot hook (or lack of), it seems that each successive work is written more by the "with" and less by the great CC himself.The Tombs is another example of collaborative authorship trading on the legacy of the name, but without the quali [...]


    4. The Tombs by Clive Cussler is the fourth book in the series depicting adventures of Sam and Remi Fargo, a couple of millionaires who enjoy archeology and treasure hunting. This time they are set against Eastern European mafia in a race across Europe and Asia to uncover the tomb of Attila the Hun.The storyline of "The Tombs" is very simplified, to the point of being more appropriate for a cartoon or kids comic book than a novel. In the beginning of their adventure the Fargos conveniently meet Tib [...]


    5. Fourth in the Fargo Adventure suspense series revolving around Sam and Remi Fargo, wealthy treasure hunters with a reputation for success.My TakeWhat a disappointment! I have to wonder if Cussler had anything to do with writing this other than putting his name on the cover. It could be unfair of me to put the onus on Perry, but of all the Cusslers I've read, this is one of the very few that have appalled me in the writing sense.The story idea is terrific and great fun. It's execution is just tha [...]


    6. I gave this 2 stars, only because I have always enjoyed CC's books, but this one was pretty much a disaster. It sped through each little Fargo adventure, but dragged on with facts about Attila the Hun and other useless information.If all chapters read like the last 3 it could have been a decent book.Now, would you trust a complete stranger to pilot a boat you just loaded with millions in treasure and not even go with hime on. The befriending and trusting was way to cheesy.All these instant frien [...]


    7. I've been on vacation all week, doing my best not to think about work. Since I knew we'd be spending a few days camping, I decided to push the review pile to the side and do a little pleasure reading. I didn't have any specific titles in mind, but I knew precisely what kind of books I wanted to enjoy.First up, I made sure we stopped at the drug store on our way out of town. I wanted a Clive Cussler adventure to read, and there's always a new one on the paperback rack, so I figured I would take m [...]


    8. Clearly Grant Blackwood was doing the heavy lifting with this series because here, in the first novel Blackwood didn't co-author, the "adventure" in this adventure series disappears. In place of adventure, we, the reader, are instead givenI don't know. A story, to be sure. One that had great potential, even. But no adventure. The Fargos go from A to B to C with little or no drama. The premise of the book is that a friend of the Fargos has discovered a clue leading to the tomb of Attila the Hun. [...]

    10. So I'm not particularly imaginative when it comes to my audio book selection. I like Scott Brick's reading and Fargo series seem to entertain enough to do the trick. This book, part 4 in the series, was actually better than some of its predecessors. The are all ridiculous, of course, the Fargos are much too perfect to be taken seriously and it's all entirely too predictable to be compelling per se, but I do enjoy the historical aspect, in this case Attila the Hun, who apparently was quite an ent [...]


    11. There are just so many things wrong with The Tombs that it makes me tired just to think about articulating it all, and this book really isn’t worth that much thought. Other reviews have pointed out all the flaws. I say ditto. As action-adventure goes, I could have done better, but this is fine in a pinch at the right price point. And by the right price point, I most definitely mean free. If you like Cussler, and you want to read his new stuff, do yourself a favor and check it out from the libr [...]


    12. An exciting adventure yarn. Better yet, the content was cleaner than in the last entry in this series that I read.


    13. This was my first book by the author. It was a pretty painful read, honestly. It started quite slowly, and picked up a bit as the story unfolded, but it soon became obvious exactly what was going to be happening at every turn. It was way too predictable, and there was no suspense at all making the story really tiresome after the half way point for me. The characters seemed a bit childish in a sense that I felt like everybody and their personalities, no matter how bad they were, were appropriate [...]


    14. In a word, disappointing. This is probably the most poorly written Cussler I've ever read and I own and have read every one. Compared to books like Inca Gold and Sahara, this book is just plain slow, plodding, lacking in suspense, and without the slightest hint of clever twists. For instance, every time the Fargoes get in trouble, they miraculously and with little to no thought escape and move on, all this within no more than a few pages. Compare this to Patterson's latest, "Zoo," which I'm havi [...]


    15. "The Tombs" - written by Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry and published in 2012 by G P Putnam's Sons. The plot of this action-adventure story centers around the opulent burial treasure secreted with the body of Attila the Hun, and Sam and Remi Fargo's attempts to beat others to the horde. The Fargos are millionaire adventurists and gourmands who can do what they want, when they want, with no worries about how much it will cost. "You've become known for finding gold and jewels." A complicated excav [...]


    16. The nicest thing I can say about this book is that I'm probably not the target audience. I picked up this novel in an airport mini-mart, en route from Portland to Los Angeles, and I was prepared to be pleasantly surprised. After all, many of my favorite novels are what the professorial crowd would call swashbuckling pulp: James Clavell, H. Rider Haggard, Burroughs, and so on. So buckled into my seat at 32,000 feet, watching the topographic splendor of the San Joaquin valley unfold below, I crack [...]


    17. As usual Clive Cussler serves up another fun well paced action packed thrill ride. The Fargo's for me have always seemed more of a link from Young Adult to the adult books, even with that comparison this book is a great fun book, Clive always has easy to read characters, and outrageous plots that take you well away from reality, and that's the beauty of these books, something that perfect for reading by the pool to remove you from the hum drum of life. Those who try to nit pick because the book [...]


    18. #4 in the Sam & Remi Fargo series. The Fargos are treasure hunters with hearts of gold; being independently wealthy, they pay their own way, scrupulously turn over treasures found to the appropriate authorities, and if profit is realized, they turn it over to a non-profit foundation. This time out, Clive Cussler has changed co-authors for the series, turning to Thomas Perry - veteran thriller author of The Butcher's Boy (1982) and 20 other works. The chase to find Attila's tomb ahead of a Hu [...]


    19. Clive hits another out of the park . The research and attention to detail draws you in . The character interaction and building is seamless even in the smaller characters . The history interwoven into the tale is so compelling as to create a fuller tableau for the reader to enjoy . A riveting read that I could not put down , completed in a day .A new Author that has climbed into similar rankings as Clive Cussler .WithoutSufferAbominationE.E. Borton


    20. Great adventure. Lovely plot, although unbelievable at most times. Definitely keeps you entertained. Fast paced, quick reading. Good read!Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site. What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine.

    21. CC is getting better and better at weaving his fictional characters with history to make fascinating lessons. This time the subject was the 5th century ruler Attila. Two modern day archaeologists find clues to a series of tombs/treasure caches laid down by Attila, after he was conquered at Châlons, to hide them until he could return to conquer Rome, which he didn't live long enough to do. There were five tombs in the series, hidden deliberately and by time across Europe and Western Asia, each w [...]


    22. Clive Cussler has been writing (and partner-writing) long enough that by now anyone picking up one of his books knows precisely what they're in for. This is no exception. Suspend a belief in things being logical or happening according to the way things really happen in life and the reading of this book will be a fun escape from the humdrumO, Cussler's books have always been over-the-top, borderline believable and full of adventure. Just the thing for a restless afternoon.No, the writing here isn [...]


    23. Clive Cussler’s Dirk Pitt series is great fun, so I decided to try “The Tombs” featuring the Fargos, a series featuring a husband and wife adventure team. Too often, modern fiction thinks it “smart” to have one character, usually the woman, taking non-stop shots at the other. The Fargos are refreshing in that when they tease each other, its about the other’s good qualities and, as you’d expect with Cussler, you get lots of action and adventure. Personally, I would have preferred on [...]


    24. Everything was way too easy for the Fargos during this adventure. The taxi driver magically knew exactly the person/people they needed no matter what country they were in, their researchers could instantly pull up exactly the information they needed, their cell phones and i-pad always had a signal no matter where they were (even out in the middle of nowhere). They spent no time searching in the wrong place for tombs and none of them were looted, even though they were all over 1500 years old. Eve [...]


    25. Even though I’ve been annoyed for years about “The Clive Cussler Novel Machine”, where the books are probably mostly written by the author-in-small-letters, rather than CLIVE CUSSLER in-large-letters, I’ve enjoyed the Fargo series until now. For some reason, The Clive Cussler Novel Machine has switched from using Grant Blackwood for this series, to Thomas Perry. Because of this, I’ll stop reading future Fargo novels, as this one is not that good at all. This is it. No more fake Clive C [...]


    26. As always Clive Cussler delivers a good read.However, I will say that the book just kinda felt "streamlined" like it was heavily edited to get it out faster ?I know that he uses alot of Ghost writers these days but still has most of the imput and outline. But, this book just seemed to "simple". I guess what im trying to say is that it "jumped" along instead of a nice action, suspense pace that we all are used to.I'm a lont time reader of his books and love every one of them. They are a fun fille [...]


    27. It was a pretty good book. I didn't get to read it very quickly but I love the adventure feel. I also love the fact that its not drowning in love triangles. the fact that sam and remi are married really takes away from the drama aspect.which I love about this book. I also was just given almost ALL of Clive cusslers books for free at my job, so I cant wait to get moving on to the next one and see where the adventure takes me.


    28. #4 in the Sam & Remi Fargo series.The Fargo Adventures show people the lighter side of adventuring, The Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of amateur treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself and will stop at nothing to claim the tombs’ riches as his own.I would recommend this book to mature readers with an interest in history or adventure.


    29. Cussler may have a formula, but the variations in each book make these adventure mysteries hard to put down. The Fargos are in great form this time, assisting an archeologist from Germany. Things get sticky when a Hungarian gangster mogul is interested in where things might lead from an apparent 6th-century battlesight. Full of amazing escapes, struggles with villains' criminal minds, and the usual fun of watching the good guys come out on top, no matter what the opposition throws at them!


    30. Extreme disappointment. Downloaded this Clive Cussler et. al. expecting the rip roaring action with lots of unexpected twists and turns I'd enjoyed in the past. What a let down! It is no more than a "cranked out", lame novel. No depth. No excitement. No fun. I guess somethings just aren't like they used to be. Goodbye Mr. Cussler, it had been nice knowing you.
