But like that other great frontier, space, the sea has not yet yielded up all its secrets. And men like Franklin will never rest until its every fathomless mystery has been challenged....

"Oceans. Space. The human drama goes on!"
Incredibly Clarke wrote this in 1957. handheld computers, worldwide computer connections, and sea-serpents! He goes deep into the oceans and far out into space. His story is almost 60 years old yet predates our modern technological era without seeming out of place today.
"Chopping and changing"
Good luck trying to guess where the plot of this book is going. There was a very sharp swerve in a different direction towards the end that made it really dull.
"Ethical, thought provoking sci fi"
I really enjoyed this book. It's "gentle" sci fi and suitable for people who don't normally listen to this genre. Well written and really makes you think about the planet and our role in it. Good narration.
