Pure Cussler

The book is easy to read. Can't put it down till the end. Always keeps you guessing.

Good read new start

With out spoiling the whole book Valhalla Rising is classic Cussler: Dirk, Al and the rest of the cast of characters, on the trail of vikings and subs. Granted that a few things could be changed but those are just minor. Complete with air chases and life changing events Valhalla Rising takes Dirk in a different direction.

decent adventure with great historical connections

It may be hard to admit enjoying books like this, but the historical aspects and the descriptions of aircraft and watercraft are amazing. This novel is the reason for my new interest in planes. I am able to recognize a Ford Tri-motor on sight, thanks to Clive and Dirk. The discussion of the Viking settlements in North America was accurate and presented in a thoroughly pleasing fashion. This knowledge actually helped me later reading Thor Heyerdahl books. Cussler tells and does not show. The characters, their mannerisms and the relations between them are not at all deep, but adequately move the story along. His descriptions of technology and nautical methods are very good, indeed. Cussler knows his stuff, though I'd rather hear Thor talk about boats and the sea. Nevertheless, this is a fast-paced, non-challenging book that is quite entertaining.
