POLAR SHIFT (2005) 5.5/8 Yes Thriller Rs.75 (Amazon.in) Clive Cussler Paul Kemprecos [3.88/7116 ratings Goodreads]
And finally on 37th day, completed 1 more read of Clive Cussler, my 1st read of his NUMA FILES series: POLAR SHIFT. This is the 6th book of the series which consists of total 13 novels till date. It was co-writtenby Paul Kemprecos and the main hero is Kurt Austin.
Its an engaging high action thriller, but the action is not too fast as generally a Matthew Reilly thrill have (that’s characteristic Cussler 4 u). Kurt’s on the mission to save the earth from geological polar shift, which if happened will results in extinction of human species, but who will stop the maniac on loose. There is a group led by someone who wants all the power in his hands to control the world’s elites for which he plotted a polar shift although magnetic in nature, but it will lead to geological polar shift and which means total destruction.
The book started with a flashback kind of era, a scientist existing in cold war era is being hauled by an unknown guy. And then we shift our base to present situation. In the starting the story looks haphazard, as so many plots and characters from different backgrounds coming into view, but as the book progresses, the situations become clearer and characters got linked. This book is 530 pgs long but thoroughly enjoyable and hell of a ride. By the end you’ll feel sarisfied, though I must say that ending could have better with more detail on the final action could be covered, plus some fantasy too added to the plot, looked odd and misplaced, could have been avoided (once u read you’ll come to know) but nonetheless still a good book to read. I rate the book 5.5/8
