The Solomon Curse
By Clive Cussler & Russell Blake
Sam and Remi Fargo search for a legendary lost city in this thrilling adventure from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author.
Husband-and-wife treasure-hunting team Sam and Remi Fargo have heard many rumors about the bay off Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. Some say it was the site of the vanished empire of the Solomon king and that great treasure lies beneath the waters. Others say terrible things happened here, atrocities and disappearances at the hands of cannibal giants, and those who venture there do not return. It is cursed.
The Fargos can’t resist the mystery, but their exploration takes a turn when islanders start disappearing. Soon the pair learn there may be truth behind the fables. Clues and whispers lead them on a hunt from the Solomons to Australia to Japan, and what they find at the end of the trail is both wonderful and monstrous—and like nothing they have ever seen before.
Surprise Ending5By D. SzaboGreat book did not expect ending. Can't wait for the next one.
Childish Ending3By doodlelieI enjoyed this book until the very last few pages, when the authors included 17' giants in the story. If they wanted giants, how about making them a realistic height? All that this book needed was a final sentence of "and Sam, Remi, and their friends all lived happily ever after" and the book's appeal to the young crowd would have been complete.
Fun read4By Trixie MonroeEnjoyed the read. Grows more exciting at the end.
So so3By DeerhurstNot up to the normal Cussler standard.
The Solomon Curse5By Jaw7896One of the best Clive Cussler book I have read. Fast paced and never a lack od suspense. Bravo well done.
GOOD ENDING5By mystic9999I found the characters lacked depth and the relationships between needed deepening. However as the story developed it truly did bring together many interesting facets of history, the usual treasure hunting adventure along with civil unrest, and a surprise medical drama that truly made the book worth reading. I have to give the book applause for its finale.
The Solomon Curse5By jms1127I have read most, if not all of the Fargo books. This was as good or better than any of them. It is a terrific read.
Fargos go Far5By CaKrisThis is another great Fargo adventure. The ending will surprise you. A quick read. Way to go Mr C!
The Solomon a Curse1By CiscobearTerrible. Boring. Trite the supposedly "cute" repartee between the couple is nauseating. Never again waste money on a Cussler
Meh.3By Wrlss911ProNot the best in the Fargo series. I have always disliked the vigilante aspect of the Fargoes. This one is rather disjointed and confusing. The characters are not fully fleshed out and they tend to sound the same.
