Interesting novel. Worth reading.

As a fan of Michael Crichton, Stephen King, and the works, I was hoping the book would incorporate more action than I expected. There were many occassions where the technical terms were difficult to understand, but thankfully the notes at the bottom of the pages helped. The only part where I think was most interesting and exciting was when the crew discovered the Submarine and ventured into it to look for the secrets that it held. The rest is kind of, well, boring. And it was difficult, trying to make a deep sea expedition sound interesting. I mean, looking for core samples in the Hellencian Trench is not exactly the kind of thing you hear everyday. But overall, I'd enjoy Mr. Ballard's Non-Fiction works better. By the way, Lieutanent Haddix sounded more like Superwoman to me than a regular 1800.

I loved this book! Unlike the other reviews, I didn't think the terminology was overly technical, but then again I work in the engineering field. The writing has a good flow to it, is very suspenseful and captivating. I had a difficult time putting it down.
