This book is fun, if highly improbable. For example, Hal manages to impart a lengthy discourse on the habits of sharks while the submersible he and Roger are in is attacked by a tiger shark. However, the locations and action are good, and the book as a whole evokes the SeaLab era, where undersea exploration was seen as a viable means of solving mankind's problems.

I remember loving one of this series when I was a kid - they were stranded on a desert island. This one, reading it for the first time as an adult, I wasn't so keen on - guns and exploiting the ocean. I wouldn't give it to a child.

i learned about more sea creatures (giant octopus and giant squid) and what to do when they try to eat us - wow i don't know our food is big enough to eat us when they fight back.
