Summary

A Sunday Times best seller

The superb third Dirk Pitt classic from multi-million-copy king of the adventure novel, Clive Cussler.

The towering iceberg drifting in the North Atlantic was a floating tomb. Embedded in the great gleaming mass was a ship - sealed in so solidly that not even its mast protruded.

Here was a sea mystery to rank alongside the Bermuda Triangle and the Marie Celeste. But for Major Dirk Pitt, top troubleshooter for the National Underwater and Marine Agency, it was also the first link in a fantastic chain of events that would lead him too close - and too often - to violent death. And to the discovery of the most sinister and bizarre conspiracy of the century...Iceberg.

Good but of its time

This is a typical Dirk Pitt story, enioyable escapism. However, it is very much written in the 1970s and some of the language used to describe certain individuals could offend modern sensibilities.

Great Story but only if your a caveman.

Iceberg is a great action story, but it's dated, the way Clive Cussler writes about women in this book is indicative of the time. women should be arm candy nothing more.
I really do enjoy Clive Cussler's writing but In this book some of the dialogue was a bit "old school" for my personal taste.

fab

great to see the older books by CC coming out on audible... not being able to read anymore it's great.

This was written in 1975 so is not completely "pc" but reflects attitudes at that time... as Dirk ages his character changes as do we all. Lucky for us this engaging chap still has many adventures in him yet +

Could have been good

Aside from the misogyny, homophobia and clichés, Cussler shows that he has a vivid imagination. The book is too unbelievable, and the main character knows more than he could ever just guess. A character says one word, and then Pitt guesses their whole life story. And he is always spot on in his guesses. It would have been more believable if it only happened once or twice, but it happens all the time.

The narrator is good, and does a good job with what he was given.
