    Can you give anything lower than a one-star rating? I have never read Cussler before but wanted a quick, light summer read. With its one-dimensional, stock characters and forced dialog The Navigator is quite possibly one of the worst books I have read.

    This story begins in 900 BC, as a Thracian and Phoenician ship collide, with devastating consequences. Many years later, in 1809, Thomas Jefferson has assembled cherished word lists of the Unkechaug people, valuable vellum documents which he entrusts to an old friend - Meriwether Lewis. He has no idea that “The Cultivation of Artichokes” document will seal Lewis’ doom. Lewis is apparently murdered for the priceless find and a dreadful conspiracy is begun, a conspiracy that remains hidden u [...]

    maybe i've read too many of cussler books lately, but god this book was astoundingly boringthe protagonists- what is it about kurt austin and his pale hair that makes him so boring? he collects dueling pistols. wow. how very, very interesting. and what about zavala? a Mexican-American who turns classic cars into submarines - boring? how could it be? and yet it is. and the Trouts- don't these people have any flaws? at all?the antagonists - a megalomaniac looking for Solomon's mines in America who [...]

    I love Clive Cussler books, they're wild, adventurous, a little history mixed with fiction and just fun! I was excited about this one, because I heard it talked about my stomping grounds on the Chesapeake Bay and Havre de Grace. It didn't disappoint. If you are looking for a fun adventure this is the book for you. Just keep in mind, sometimes you laugh and think to yourself, seriously? Good stuff.

    Maybe books like this should come with a warning? Matt's review just about sums up how I felt after reading this !

    Een oké actie verhaal. De auteur doet veel onderzoek voor zijn boeken, maar soms zijn er teveel details en dat komt de leesbaarheid niet altijd ten goede.

    Leslie
    This was one of the worst Cussler books I've read. The copy editing was horrendous. The writing was aimed at 3rd graders, with stilted sentences, unbelievable dialogue, and boring prose. The fight scenes, in particular, seemed to be a series of choppy sentences that all started with "The."While I expect the plot to be outlandish (that's the fun of his books), this one just had too many pieces that were obviously untrue, which made it really hard to suspend disbelief. The part that bothered me mo [...]

    Valuable artifacts have been stolen from the Bagdad museum after the taking of Iraq in the war. Among these stolen artifacts is "The Navigator," a bronze statue that may just be the key to finding a lost religious relic, or even King Solomon's mines. Carina's job is to recover these lost artifacts, but it puts her on a very dangerous path, but she was lucky enough to have Kurt Austin be there to save her. Now the two of them are working to solve the mystery before it is too late.The first of the [...]

    If you want straight forward page turning action adventure story then this is the one. Although it's part of the NUMA Files series, I have not read any of the others and I didn't find it a hindrance.The Navigator is a statue that has been stolen from the Bagdad museum and Kirt Austin and the NUMA team are on its trail. But the story begins long before this in the days of ancient Phoenicia and then moves to the mysterious circumstances surrounding the disappearance of some of Thomas Jefferson's p [...]

    Clive Cussler's earlier works far exceed the current stuff with multiple authors. This was reasonably entertaining, and any need I might have had to read any more of his books for sometime. This book had more description of clothing (and appearance and sex appeal/desire) then I remember from previous books and it's not what I want from a clive cussler. Otherwise it might have gotten a 3 star review.

    Kathleen
    Entertaining enough, but not one of my favorite Cussler novels. I liked the plot with Jefferson, Lewis & the whole adventure bit, however the whole hero fights evil bad guy to land the hot chick was particularly tiresome in this one. Overly "manly", much in the way some romance novels can go way over the top with the feminine fluff. I will still continue to read Clive Cussler though, his stories are good action the pages turn quickly.

    Dan
    Another Cussler classic, full of action and history and intrigue. I especially enjoyed this story because much of it takes place around where I live! It stars the usual cast of characters Cussler readers are used to from the later NUMA files, and I like that the villain in this story isn't trying for global domination. Overall this is a good book and follows the traditional Cussler plot line, which is what makes his books worth reading!

    Joshua
    The best thing I can say is that Cussler makes Dan Brown seem like a literary giant. It got two stars because the book wasn't actually offensive; it just wasn't much of anything. The entire time I was thinking maybe it will go somewhere, get interesting. Nope! So much for recommendations from strangers.

    Kronos
    Cussler brings back Kurt Austin in this exotic, ecstatic, and exhilarating thriller set above, on, and underwater. The Navigator is perfect for adrenaline junkies who want to get a classy fix without going anywhere. Killing time on this book is something you’ll not regret.In this installment of the NUMA Files series, Kurt Austin and his team face off against the descendant of King Solomon himself. They hunt down the legendary gold mines of Solomon along with many other Biblical relics on the w [...]

    Daniel
    This is the first Clive Cussler book I've read in many years. I love that this book involves an artifact that existed in the past so far back and yet the current, modern day impact it has on societies and those who want it for nefarious reasons really get tied together very well. I really kind of blew through this book and there are many ways to spoil this book but let me say this. If you like Indiana Jones and the books of Tony Hillerman, then this is definitely in your wheelhouse. Give it a re [...]

    It was witty just as they all are with Austin and How's adventures. I have to take a star away for making certain religious lineage as a villainous approach but I'm only minutely offended. Its only 1 person's or persons' decisions in life. Every generation will be unpredictablely good or bad but that's what makes this book so adventurous. Another version of a Freemasonry style secret society keeping something hidden to protect the harmony of humanity. My next choice to read will be Nighthawk. Bu [...]

    Me encantan los libros de los Archivos NUMA. La verdad es que estoy conciente de que muchas cosas son absurdas y que los protagonistas tienen una suerte increible, pero no puedo evitar emocionarme con cada nueva misión. Esta estuvo super interesante. Me pregunto si Austin dejará de ligarse a las chicas en cada misión Creo que le toca a Zavala ahora xD

    Doug
    Not sure if this qualifies as a spoiler or not, but better safe than sorryIt was a good book to listen to on audio; however, I'm not fond stories that suggest that something covered in the Bible is not true or accurate as told in scriptures, even if it is just a fictional story. That was the case with The Navigator. Otherwise, it was a good book.

    John
    Classic Cussler. King Solomon's Phoenician sons and his gold mine are pursued by a maniacial tycoon who seeks to hide all evidence of the existence of the gold. The Navigator is a statue that unravels the mystery. Broad in scope and fast paced.

    Reed Johnson
    This is a little slow. It did get better. A little like the DiVince Code

    Kenny
    Fun book. Not as good as others in this series.

    sarah
    Love everything cussler, just a ' jolly good read'

    More than a little silly. In my experience mini submarines, aircraft, boats etc never seem to work as advertised just when you need them most. 🔔

    Charvi Vitthal
    My first Clive Cussler book which I read in IX standard. I absolutely enjoyed it then.

    dennis l howe
    Another great book with lots of action and surprisAnother great book with a plan and surprise love reading his seriesLooking for to the next in the series

    Debbie Mcnally
    Fantastic book very informative.

    Sheldon
    Cussler has learned the Patterson school of co-authors to our advantage. This Austen adventure is just that, and adventure for the eyes or ears, if you are an audiobookphile like me.

    I wouldn't exactly call myself a fan of Clive Cussler, but I've always enjoyed what little I've read in the past. I'm not usually too much of a fan of marine stories, which is why he's never been a first choice of mine, although he does write exciting stories. ''The Navigator'' is no exception.Years before the birth of Christ, the Phoenicians hid something very valuable in a far away land. Thousands of years later, Thomas Jefferson, just nearing the end of his term as President of the United Sta [...]
