CLIVE CUSSLER CREATED EXTRAORDINARY ADVENTURES WITH A DASH OF HUMOR AND EXCITEMENT. I HOPE HIS SON CONTINUES TO WRITE AND KEEP THE THRILLS GOING! I AM A CRIME WRITER, AND I STILL CANNOT PUT DOWN HIS BOOKS. I AM ON MY SECOND READING OF ALL OF THEM. CLIVE WAS AN EXCELLENT WRITER AND HE WILL BE MISSED. CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY. J.LEE BURKE

I have been mesmerized by Clive's writing ever since his first writing. I have read every book he has published so you can't imagine how devastated I was when hearing of his passing. I hope he did not suffer in his last moments and will miss his writings terribly. He is the only author that I have been loyal to since day one and will begin to re-read his writings, each and every one.

I have every book he has written. Always enjoyed his appearance in the earlier ones. "Clive, Clive Cussler". Will certainly miss his writing. Prayers for the family.. So sorry!

I have read almost every one of his books with complete satisfaction and enjoyment! Always made me feel like I was there! Great writer!

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

I am 74 years old and an avid reader. I think I started reading Clive's books at the turn of the century and have read about everything he has ever written. He will be missed but look forward to his son Dirk, continuing the Cussler legacy. Thoughts and prayers to His family.

Clive Cussler was a master of the spoken word. I loved the first book and every book since. Clive was such a rare soul. He lived his stories, you could tell. Very clever writer, had a way of weaving all the characters in over many stories. He developed the characters so beautifully. This writer was a shinning light in a dreary world. Adventure, intrigue, romance, thrilling were just a few words that described Clive Cussler's stories. I hated for the stories to end. Wilber Smith is equally...

Ive read every Clive Cussler novel and have enjoyed all of them. I also thought it was interesting that he sometimes worked himself into the story. Condolences to the family.
