Much of the undersea science was sound for being written in the 's. It's "pulp" in a lot of places, and some of the language is dated - but I devoured this book and I'm looking forward to the rest of the trilogy. View 1 comment. Dec 28, Carlex rated it liked it.

Heinlein or Lester Del Rey.
The first-person narrative is fast-moving and adventuresome, with many cute cliffhangers that are not cheesy or overdone. I was struck by how beautifully evocative the novel is--the colors, the naval traditions, the descriptions of the mysteries of the deep. In retrospect, it is particularly interesting that, unless I missed it, space travel simply does not seem to be mentioned at all; the excitement, the glamour, the romance instead all exist beneath the waves.
Sep 17, Denis rated it liked it. A great juvenile adventure written in the late fifties by the late Williamson and Pohl. Not as "gutsy" as Heinlein's juvies, but a definite good yarn. There is much information education about what causes earth-sea quakes here; seismology and all that -a juvenile or YA novel ought to teach the young something. It is also a fine story of loyalty to those who are close to us family and friends. Jul 16, Search The Sky rated it liked it Shelves: blogged-about. This is a reasonably charming and easy-going little book. It's meant for 'young adults' and whilst this isn't apparent in the prose it certainly comes through in the plot!
This helps him buckle down for the next six years to get a good education. Unfortunately I am a little too old to buckle down at school in order to become a submariner, but for the target audience there might still be time. Uncle Stewart soon goes from sending telegrams to being missing, presumed dead. Jim, dismissed from the academy, decides to visit the great undersea cities himself and find out why. Jim and his fellow cadets are thoroughly moral, acting with loyalty and integrity throughout.
The good guys win and they win selflessly. Over at my blog I gave it 3.
Dec 09, Jim Razinha rated it liked it. Standard s adventure fare Juvenile adventure that I probably would have liked more as a 12 year old but it is still fun. The way it was written felt like the sea is empty. Yes, it mentioned sharks and sea serpents, but it was not enough to convince you that the story was happening underwater. Still a good read though. Hope to find the second book of the trilogy someday.
