Just finished Spartan Gold and I really liked it. Don't get me wrong, it's not very detailed in a Tom Clancy way nor is it entirely realistic. The Fargos get out of their scrapes a little too easily and don't need to work all that hard to figure out the clues they follow. But I enjoyed the dynamic between them and the story was fun, in a Nick and Nora Charles vein. Good read, very entertaining.
Can't stop reading

I started reading thinking that I might do 50 pages a night but after you start reading it you end up doing 150 pages a night.
One of the best books I've ever read

Classic Clive...good story if you can scan read all the history details that are not pertinent. A good read nonetheless.
Good, entertaining, and fast read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Cussler and Blackwood do a great job in building characters and relationships with other characters. I loved the combination of adventure and history, but I felt like the ending was a little rushed as I was expecting more bottles to be found. Overall though, a wonderful read and I'm looking forward to the sequel.
This is the perfect read, fun, fast action and great characters. Spartan Gold has it all, from the Greeks to Napoleon and Nazi submarines, the action and history in this book is top notch. My only complaint is there isn't another Fargo adventure to read - yet.... Hint, hint Cussler and Blackwood!
