内容紹介

The President's secret task force has developed an unprecedented defensive weapon that relies on an extremely rare radioactive element--and Dirk Pitt has followed a twisted trail to a secret cache of the substance. Now, racing against brutal storms, Soviet spies, and a ticking clock, Pitt begins his most thrilling mission--to raise from its watery grave the shipwreck of the century...

出版社からのコメント

The President's secret task force develops the ultimate defensive weapon. At its core: byzanium, a radioactive element so rare sufficient quantities have never been found. But a frozen American corpse on a desolate Soviet mountainside, a bizarre mining accident in Colorado, and a madman's dying message lead DlRK PITT~ to a secret cache of byzanium. Now he begins his most thrilling, daunting mission -- to raise from its watery grave the shipwreck of the century!

In a daring gamble, DIRK PITT locates the Titanic -- and suddenly his crew is in deadly jeopardy. Sabotaged by Russian spies and savage storms, Pitt must stop a diabolical plan for Soviet world supremacy -- or see the mighty Titanic blasted out of existence!

処女航海で深海に沈んだタイタニックを引き上げるという荒唐無稽な物語ではあるが、引き上げが必要な背景がこれも荒唐無稽ではあるがきちんと用意されており、タイタニックの引き上げに関わる部分だけではなく、米ソの冷戦時代を背景としたスパイ小説の部分も楽しめた。

また主人公はヒーローのDirk Pittの活躍だけではなく、準主役のSeagram夫婦の関係や心理状況も結構細かく描写されており、単なるアクションものではない広がりもある。タイタニックの引き上げ方法は驚かされたし、終盤のどんでん返しの連続には本当にはらはらさせられたりと、サービス精神満点の作品です。

あのタイタニック号を引き上げるなんて、何とも荒唐無稽な話と思って読んでいましたが、話はロシアとアメリカの一触即発の危機がからんだ、相当にリアルな話でした。その結末にしても話の始まりから予測された結末とは大きく異なり、アッと言わされます。何とも Clive Cussler らしいエンディングです。読んで損はなかったという物語でした。この後の Dirk Pitt の話は、あのタイタニック号を引き上げた Dirk Pitt という形容詞が付いて語られる事になります。

5つ星のうち 4.0 Wonderful Adventure 2006/9/12
投稿者 Ken Fontenot - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
My introduction to Clive Cussler was through the film, "Sahara." I really enjoyed that film and being a lover of the works of another adventure writer, Steve Alten, I decided to give Cussler's books a try. A friend of mine loaned me this book as well as two others written by Cussler.

I really enjoyed "Raise the Titanic!" It's got plenty of adventure, espionage, sabotage, and even a little romance in it. Cussler goes into great, but not too boring, detail of how his hero, Dirk Pitt, and the gang from NUMA manage to lift the Titanic from its watery grave in order to solve a mystery dating back to 1912, when the Titanic made its fateful voyage. The U.S. Government is interested in a mineral, byzanium, that may be aboard the Titanic at the bottom of the ocean. They hope to find the byzanium and use it to complete a nuclear defense weapon's construction under the codename, Sicilian Project.

Of course, adventure just wouldn't be adventure without bad guys. For this particular book, Cussler uses the tried and true U.S.S.R. as the enemy. Primary bad guy, Prevlov, is the perfect foil to the slick, almost carefree, Dirk Pitt.

Overall, this book carries itself quite well from beginning to end. The only place that Cussler stumbles is with the sweet talk. The "romance" that occurs between Pitt and the heroine of this book, Dana Seagram, comes across as forced, awkward, and entirely pointless to the story. To be honest, had Cussler completely left the sex out of this book, it would probably be five-star worthy. Unfortunately, Cussler writes sex scenes and romantic interludes like a fourteen-year-old--all climax, no build-up.

Don't let this one hang-up of mine keep you from reading this book. It really is a great, fast-paced read and is perfect for people who only have a few minutes at a time to read a book. Not much thinking is necessary to tear this pocketbook up.

Recommended to fans of fast-paced thrillers, military fiction, and authors like Steve Alten.

5つ星のうち 4.0 The Titanic - an irresistible setting for a Dirk Pitt novel 2006/2/17
投稿者 Daniel Berger - (Amazon.com)
形式: マスマーケット
Cussler's prescience with this - proposing that the Titanic could not only be located but raised off the North Atlantic's bottom - led to the wreck's discovery and the making of the 1990s blockbuster film. It was only natural that Cussler should use it as the basis for one of his Dirk Pitt novels.

In it, the U.S. government becomes interested in the wreck when it's determined that the world's only stockpile of a rare radioactive element - one suddenly critical to an proposed missile defense program - may have gone down with it. The plot takes us back nearly a century in time to a mysterious Colorado mining disaster, to the snowy wastes of Arctic Russia, to a harrowing chase across England and to the night in 1912, etched into popular legend, that the grand ship sunk on its maiden voyage. Pitt plays less of a role in this one than in most of his books, but emerges in the second half of the book to not only raise the wreck but to save it, with his usual ingenuity, from a hurricane and a dastardly Soviet plot. I can't say whether Cussler's method of raising the ship is actually plausible; it's safe to say that in most of his books he stretches the limits of existing science and technology. According to this book, metal corrodes less than expected or little at all at the deep bottom of the ocean, corrosion apparently being retarded by the cold, the scarcity of deep ocean life and of oxygen. I'd love to know if that's actually true, but then again, the well preserved state of the Titanic wreck suggests it might be.

Cussler's writing, particularly about men and women, is highly dated now - 70s-style talk of "libbers" - and probably sounded 15 years behind the times in the late 1980s when this was published. He got a handle on it in later novels, where women are scientists but still swoon for Pitt, and where Pitt is chivalrous but not quite so 13th century about it; where the sex scenes are implied rather than depicted - one scene here, when our NUMA crew including one woman is being held captive by the bad guys, is a bit lurid - and where sex politics aren't really discussed. Here, they are in the foreground as the marriage of beautiful but obnoxiously feminist Dana Seagram, one of Pitt's NUMA colleagues, and her wrapped-too-tight husband Gene, erodes as both become involved in the Titanic adventure. Pitt is not entirely convincing at the end talking to the mentally vulnerable Gene.

For Pitt fans, no Dirk Pitt book is a bad read. This one is no different. Cussler's writing improved after this but, really, one can't resist the combination of him, Pitt and the Titanic.

5つ星のうち 5.0 What can I say...absolutely THRILLING 1999/12/15
投稿者 Jeff Edwards (rmgomske@lightcom.net) - (Amazon.com)
形式: マスマーケット
For me, 'Cyclops' is STILL my all-around favorite Pitt novel...but for sheer plotting style, and a storyline that unfolds with pure amazing foresight, 'Raise The Titanic' is hands down Cussler's best work. It also happens to be the ONLY Pitt book where Dirk is NOT the main character. Gene Seagram and his wife seem to be. At first it irritated me silly, but the more I read, the more I appreciated it. I also have a comment for the reviewer who remarked that Cussler insulted his 'common sense' at how irresponsibly written his accounts of the Titanic's raising actually was...well Clive would write things differently IF he wrote the novel today...but since the technology written about in the book in the late 70's did not exist THEN let alone NOW, Clive did a superb job of 'creating' the technology from scratch, and pulled it off making it sound 'real' to THIS reader. Might I remind him that Clive actually guessed the actual location of the final resting place of the Titanic to a very close degree? My fondest wish would be for Clive to write a semi-sequel to 'Raise The Titanic' and have the ship re-fitted out and sent on a 2nd 'maiden voyage' filled with intrigue and world consequences. In short, this is the BEST PLOTTED of the Dirk Pitt novels, and deserves its place alongside the best adventure stories of the past 50 years or more. Captivating...Entertaining...Fun...Exciting... Thrilling...Amazing...an all-around fantastic hum-dinger of a tale told with style. Long live Clive Cussler and Dirk Pitt.

5つ星のうち 4.0 You have to admit, this is a fun idea to take and run with 2005/9/30
投稿者 Lawrance Bernabo - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
When Robert Ballard discovered the two halves of the H.M.S. Titanic on the floor of the Northern Atlantic any fanciful ideas of raising the ship were dashed. But Clive Cussler's novel and the movie based on it were responsible to some degree for the renewed interest in the Titanic and the underwater expeditions that eventually located the wreck. In term, Ballard's footage of the Titanic 13,000 feet below the surface of the ocean in turn inspired James Cameron's movie. So we had a real event, that inspired a novel that became a film, that led to discovering the actual wreck, which inspired the biggest money making movie of all time.

This matters because it is the relationship between fact and fantasy that makes Cussler's idea of raising the Titanic so fascinating. "Raise the Titanic!" begins the night in April 1912 when the ship sank, as one of the ship's officers, John Bigalow, has a confrontation with a desperate man who ends up locking himself in the ship's vault as it sinks beneath the waves. The secret of the Titanic's vault becomes of national importance when some clues from a frozen corpse and the record of a century-old mining accident in Colorado lead to the conclusions that a rare mineral, necessary to fuel the ultimate weapon, is what is to be found inside. In the name of national security the Titanic has to be raised from its watery grave. If that was not enough of a challenge, there are Soviet spies intent on sabotaging the mission and a big hurricane that can also resink the ship.

The problem with "Raise the Titanic!" is that both the plan and its execution are over simplified. Maybe it is because I am a fan of Tom Clancy's techno-thrillers and the level of detail he provide. True, those are invariably beyond me, but I appreciate the attempt to explain what is going on and Cussler keeps things really simple here. I do not require Clancy's sense of detail in this regard, but a bit more of the nuts and bolts of the process would have nice. All the months of preparation are glossed and in the end the best laid plans go by the wayside, leaving it to Pitt to do things by the seat of his pants, which is just how he likes to do it. But if the sense of technological accomplishment is kept to a minimum Cussler does go overboard with piling on the action and keeping up the pace so that this novel is a fun read that pretty much delivers the bigger than life adventure it promises.

This is the fourth of Cussler's Dirk Pitt adventures and the second that I have read, but it is really not until the last part of the book that Pitt becomes a major actor in the drama. Granted, the nature of the adventure puts him in a minor role until the time comes to actually raise the Titanic, but it does seem strange there is so little of the hero in the first half of the book. Besides, I am waiting to read one of these adventures where the rest of the gang at NUMA have as much to do in a novel as they did in the movie "Sahara," which is what inspired me to start reading these stories in the first place.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A Grand Slam! 2004/12/5
投稿者 Jeff Edwards - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
'Raise the Titanic' is the best of the Dirk Pitt books. Not that I'm slamming the rest of them, but this one has it all: mystery, adventure, espionage, with a dash of romance for seasoning. At the height of the Cold War, America lives under the threat of nuclear attack by the Soviet Union. A brilliant American scientist has designed a defensive shield that can make the U.S. invulnerable to nuclear attack. To make it operational, he needs large quantities of a rare mineral. Unfortunately, the only stockpile large enough went down with the Titanic. To recover it, Dirk Pitt must bring the famously ill-fated ocean liner back to the surface. He must raise the Titanic. Needless to say, the Soviets aren't crazy about the idea. They'll do anything to stop him, including send the Titanic back to her watery grave. The story should feel dated, now that the Cold War has ended and the Titanic really has been discovered. It doesn't, at least not to me. 'Raise the Titanic' is still a good old fashioned page-turner. Speaking of which, it's about time for me to dust off my old copy and read it again...
