The Jungle | [Clive Cussler, Jack Du Brul]

The Jungle

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon have undergone many hair-raising adventures before - but never one quite like this. Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Cabrillo and his remarkable men and women must survive them all.

Publisher's Summary

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon have undergone many hair-raising adventures before - but never one quite like this.

Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Cabrillo and his remarkable men and women must survive them all.

A devastating new weapon unleashed in 13th-century China... a daring rescue in the snowbound mountains along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border... a woman gone missing in the jungles of northern Thailand and Myanmar... for Cabrillo and company, all of these events will come together - leading to the greatest threat against US security that the country has ever known.

    Story
    "Jason Culp is Not Scot Brick...?"
    What would have made The Jungle better?

    If this was narrated by Scot Brick.


    Has The Jungle put you off other books in this genre?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His narration and accent did not entice me to continue with this book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Jungle?

    I am sure the story is fine I simply could not get on with Jason Culp.


    Any additional comments?

    Having listened to a number of Clive Cussler books and all narrated by Scot Brick I have become accustomed to his nuances, and the way he introduces the situation at hand.

    Story
    "Couldn't get pass 3 minutes..."
    What disappointed you about The Jungle?

    I have listened to all the Clive Cussler Oregan files books and really enjoyed them. For this book they changed narrator; this has happened before on a series and is not normally a problem. However this narrator takes an audible sharp in take of breath before he speaks, so every new sentence has there is a very annoying and very audible in take of breath. I love the stories of the Oregan Files, but after 3 minutes I could only hear the sharp in take of breath and knew I could not listen to it for over 6 hours. I hope the new release in November does not use this noisey narrator. I feel cheated and disappointed.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul again?

    If they keep the original narrator


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jason Culp’s performances?

    No thanks


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Only managed 3 minutes. I would suspect the stories are as strong as previous books in this series


    Any additional comments?

    Please, Please, Please go back to Scott Brick as the Narrator.

    "Decent Story Line"

    I enjoyed the story and the narrative but for me there was too much technical detail about oil rigs, boats and aircraft. Perhaps others will be interested in that aspect but I found myself drifting off and wishing that the book would get back to the tale. All in all though I did enjoy it but not as much as other Cussler stuff.

    "The Oregon crew yet again succeed"

    As usual an exciting adventure from the Oregon Files. A bit slow at the beginning but soon speeds up. Juan Cabrillo and his crew as usual pull out all the stops and come up on top. Like many of Cussler's stories you begin to wonder could something like this actually happen sometime in the future. Who knows? Get the book and enjoy the story.

    "At last ... Cussler comes to Audible"

    I've been a Cussler fan for years and have found myself hooked on any new material the moment it's released. The Oregon files are always reliable and this latest venture does not disappoint. Highly recommended.

    Now, Clive, when will you release all your other books to Audible?

    "Fantastic Action Filled"

    This is the 5th of the Oregon Files books with Juan Cabrillo and his crew on the Oregon. It's jammed packed with adventure, intregue and betrayal. Set in the rainforest of Burma then to the jungles of northern Thailand and Myanmar. The stroy has you rivitted as with Juan nothing is ever easy and the fight scenes are great. I loved the ending and wonder what the next storyline will be with Juan having someone watching his every move in cyberspace. I really like Jason Culp as the narrrator he puts so much into the characters he is portraying fantastic to listen to.

    Story
    "Old school but hi tech adventure"
    If you could sum up The Jungle in three words, what would they be?

    Adventure, fun, glory.


    What other book might you compare The Jungle to and why?

    Good one. It's the typical Cussler. A basic succes formula. But other writers in the same genre use simular formula's. So the difficulty is the amount of books to chose from.


    What about Jason Culp’s performance did you like?

    Pleasant voice to listen to, no excessive enthousiasme nor monotome droning , enough variation between the characters, in short, fine by me.


    If you could rename The Jungle, what would you call it?

    Back to the Saltmines. Or Ruby Intelligence.


    Any additional comments?

    Even if I have most, if not all Cussler books in my paper and/or digital library, I think i'll add them , as far as possible, to my Audible Library.

    Story
    "It's an action novel, and very American"

    It's an action-novel. As though the author have seen Die Hard too many times. If you like that, then that's fine.

    It actually tries to be a crime-thriller though, sucking you in by hiding information and make you wondering what's going on - just like Dan Brown is so good at. And Clive Cussler does this well in the first one-third of the novel. After that it becomes a bit predictable, full of cliches etc.

    Be aware, its a very American novel. And very post-9/11. I'm European and study International Relations, and there are some things in this book that are just waaaay off.

    But still, it's enjoyable. Good narration. It's easy, like watching a block buster. But not something to remember.
