| okok im not gonna talk about all the manymany things i liked about this book. I am onlygonna talk about this one scene:the bedroom scene onboard the Titanic.
leave it the man who else but Dirl Pitt could get a woman on a mattress that has been soaking ion freezing water for 50+years in th emiddle of a the freezing north Atlantic (im thinking the heaters werent working in the rooms)WAY TO GO DIRK
of course if ya can raise the Titanic then what ya could not accomplish?
O and leave it to Pitt just to be the man to raise the Titanic wasnt enuff he also had to be the last man to ...well you know......onboard the Titanic before she made here last port of call of her maden voyage.talk about making history(not to mention making more than a few pages of the gueiness book fo records)
O wait that was fiction....sorry i really get into the story sometimes .
BBBBBBBBBBRRRRRRRRR cold just thinking about it
also just as a side note:Waht brand of cologne would a guy need to buy inorder to have that kinda of attraction from the ladies?

|I thought the book was incredible. The whole idea of actually raising the Titanic and SAILING it into port really stirred my imagination! Kudos to Cussler on that one. A nice 9.7 out of 10|

| I was waiting something a little better but the book was OK for me. (Night Probe is a far better book.) But the META storyline is very interesting. The action scene between Pitt and Dana -and the conversation about the president- is weird.
8/10 for me.

|When I was looking for a book for a middle school book report, RTT's cover caught my eye. I read and reported on it, and the teacher ended up comparing notes with me on the previously written books that were soon read. Then the mentioning of the sex and F-bombs soon made the book an infrequently shelved item in the school library. The thought of it now makes me wander if the PC (Nazi) book burners have RTT on their hit list. This book was to me a major awakening, that had me visiting the book store to seek out any new Dirk Pitt novels. Raise the Titanic is the ultimate '70s read. It may not be Sahara, but after reading RTT over 10 times, it still reminds me that even though the true fate of Titanic is known, great fiction is way more cool than fact. I would throw my hat in with NUMA over Ballard's crew any day. RTT is a 10 for 10!|

|Definetly one of Dr. Cussler's best. The plot line, the realism, the Cold War aspect (with the Soviets), etc. It was and still is a great read. Definetly a solid 10. Maybe an 11.... .|

I am in agreement here. This was my first Cussler book. I was 14 at the time. If my mom had actually known what I was reading, I never would have gotten this far!

| This is the first book where technology is described more in-depth. It's also, in my opinion, the first book where Clive has found his writing style.

|RTT was also my first Cussler book. I was absolutely blown away by the concepts developed in it even though I read it after the Titanic had been discovered to be lying in two separate pieces. I liked it how Clive inlcuded several other characters such as Dana and Gene Seagram as main characters. It was just a great book overall, with some very touching moments also inside the mine and aboard the Titanic. i give it a 9.5 of 10.|

|I just finished reading it this morning. I enjoyed it but at the moment Shock wave is my favorite. I just didn't get why Dirk and Dana did it. It seemed that they hardly had any relationship until then.|
