The New York Post called him "just about the best storyteller in the business." Now, Clive Cussler, creator of the bestselling NUMA(r) and Dirk Pitt(r) series, presents his latest and most intriguing high-seas action hero: the enigmatic captain of the Oregon, Juan Cabrillo. Only Cabrillo could convert the interior of a nondescript lumber hauler into a state-of-the-art spy ship -- and only he could take the helm on the dangerous covert missions it carries out for whichever US agency pays the price. In this first feature-length adventure, Cabrillo and his crew of expert intelligence and naval men must put Tibet back in the hands of the Dalai Lama by striking a deal with the Russians and Chinese. His gambling chip is a Golden Buddha containing records of vast oil reserves in the disputed land. But first, he'll have to locate -- and steal -- the all-important artifact. And there are certain people who would do anything in their power to see him fail . . .
I have read most of Cusslers Dirk Pitt books and decided to start on the Oregon Series. I looked over the reviews for the 1st and 2nd books in the series. For both books the 1-3 star reviews outweighed all others. Hint! I started with book 3 and finished the series. I decided to take a chance on Golden Budda. I don't know who wrote this book but it wasn't Cussler.

Way to many characters called operatives with little or no description. I'd go as far as to say there were more operators than an old Bell South switchboard. If I hadn't read later books in the series I would have never known what was going on, who was who or finished the book.
Many of the chapters had multiple sub chapters causing me to pause and figure out what country I just got transferred to.
The book was also filled with useless filler info.

I am not a great book reviewer but this book through me for a loop. I never thought a Cussler book could be this bad. Gave it 2 stars because I am a Cussler fan. If you must read it, buy used paperback for a few dollars.

Note: Book 3 and on are great.
I had never read any Clive Cussler books before I went on vacation and someone had left "The Chase" in the room. I was immediately hooked and I now always keep my eye open for his books. When my son gifted me my very first Kindle, he asked what book do you want? This book, Golden Buddha, was the very first book that I bought. I was not disappointed! The Oregon Files are a great series and I now own all of them. This book introduces the smart, handsome and fiercely loyal Chairman of the corporation, Juan Cabrillo and his talented crew. (It's a nice change from his Dirk books, although I love that character too!) I really enjoyed the rich detail given to the Dali Lama character and his entourage. Golden Buddha has wonderful twists and surprises, which I love as an avid reader. The problem that I have, since I read so much, is anticipating the outcome of either the next scene or the ending of the book. With this book, and of course most of Cusssler's books, I don"t have that problem. I would recommend this book, and of course the author.
I read this book while sitting on the beach a few weeks ago, and it's definitely a page-turner, carrying the reader through the book from situation to situation without really any dull spots to slow the narrative. Be warned, however, that there are a couple of pretty serious shortcomings:
1. Every one of the "good guys" on the protagonist team are portrayed as strikingly handsome/beautiful/intelligent/witty. There's literally not a "rough and/or haggard" one in the bunch.
2. Every single challenging situation goes the way of the good guys. There's not a single instance where the plan doesn't work, or that unforeseen circumstances get in the way of something going well. Even when one of the good guys is injured, there's always a Johns Hopkins-class medic just a few minutes away to save the day.

Therefore, if you'd like to put your mind on neutral and just read a tome where the good guys always come out on top, backed by some amazingly prescient planning, incredible equipment that never misfires, and shots that never miss the mark, then this book is for you.
Not as good as later editions in the series would be. The first 50% lagged a little slowly but the final 50% really picked up the action. As the topic of a Free Tibet is a cause close to my own heart and the Dali Lamha a man I admire tremendously, I only wish this would happen in real life. A good start to what has become an excellent series.
Fun read that includes historical background as well as good geography. Clive Cussler keeps that action moving with his Oregon Series. The reader stays involved and is eager to delve further to see what is historically accurate and what is fiction. Nice way to spend time reading.
Good God this book was awful.

A trend that I notice when people review books that they don’t like (and I’m guilty of this as well) is that they’ll state “(Author’s Name) could NOT have possibly written this book!....”. The sentiment being that the reviewer has read previous offerings by the author that they really enjoyed, yet the current book being reviewed is way under par. In many cases, the reviewer is just blowing off steam. This book, however, I will go to my grave firmly convinced that Clive Cussler had virtually nothing to do with this disaster.

It should be pointed out that in the last 15 years or so, Cussler “writes” a multitude of books every year, each with different co-authors. It really doesn’t take a genius to see that so many undertakings are simply impossible for anyone, no matter how talented. I’ve read several of his books that have been co-authored, and most fall in the range of anywhere between “o.k.” to “excellent”, so I don’t mind reading these other excursions. This book, however, set a new low.

This is the first of his “Oregon Files” series. He authored it with Craig Dirgo (the two collaborated on a couple of non-fiction books, I think). Cussler is still releasing “Oregon Files” books, but he’s moved on to working with at least one other author (you need a mainframe computer to keep up with all of Cussler’s writing buddies). The only other “Oregon File” I’ve read was “Plague Ship” which Cussler wrote with Jack Dubrul. I really didn’t care for that one either, but it’s miles ahead of this one.

Unlike some other of Cussler’s series of books, the Oregon Files really doesn’t have a central character. Yes, there is a “main guy” (Juan Cabrillo), but he’s not allowed the same amount of spotlight time as characters such as Dirk Pitt, Kurt Austin, Or Isaac Bell. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but Cussler and Dirgo simply have too many characters on the Oregon ship for the reader to stay focused. I simply couldn’t remember who was who, and what everyone’s role was. It seems that this “Oregon” ship, is sort of a spy ship that Cabrillo and company use to perform mercenary missions that are too dangerous for legitimate government agencies.

When the Dalai Lama was exiled out of Tibet in the 1950s, a 600 pound “Golden Buddha” statue was stolen from him. With the powers that be working on reinstating the Dalai Lama, it makes sense that an effort be put into place that will recover the mammoth statue. A pretty monumental task. So Cabrillo and company are called in to set the wheels in motion. O.K. So far, so good.

The rest of the story goes downhill fast. REAL fast. There really isn’t any “story” from this point on. The remainder of the book is basically one long action sequence with a multitude of people running around in every possible direction. I simply couldn’t keep track of all of the players in this farce, but to be honest, at some point I refused to continue to make any effort. I simply didn’t care. The actions within these pages were so absurd, that this book might have actually been better had it been written as a slapstick comedy instead of any attempt at a serious tale. As a “real adventure”, this book simply doesn’t work.

Example: Near the beginning of this caper, the Golden Buddha is “owned” by a billionaire who is throwing a lavish party. Cabrillo and crew figure that they must “infiltrate” the party to steal this thing. The way the crew does this is flat out ridiculous. It seems as though there is a music band that is supposed to play at the party, so the Oregon crew somehow prevent the real band from showing up, and several members on the Oregon that have no musical talent nor expertise whatsoever masquerade as the “real” band so they can place themselves directly at the scene of the upcoming crime. They really don’t “need” any musical experience since they have “computers” that they can hook up to the sound system that will masquerade their lack of talent, and they do practice together for a few hours rehearsing all of the hand movements necessary to play the instruments. I can’t believe the authors would believe that their readers could possibly be this stupid to believe such a tactic could possibly work.

Then we have other members of the crew that “disguise” themselves as real people to infiltrate the gathering as well. No problem. They just kidnap the real people and hide them. You would think that people who know these kidnapped individuals would be able to tell the real person from an impostor in disguise.

Never mind.

There are other ridiculous occurrences as well, but I won’t divulge them in case someone reading this might want to actually tackle this book. Don’t say I didn’t warn you if you do.

The book only gets worse. I tend to be a completest when it comes to reading some of my favorite authors, but someone is going to have to twist my arm pretty hard before I read another one of these “Oregon” deals. A big big waste of time, effort and money.
