Fifteen-year-old Greta Kovachi travels with her brilliant father to a laboratory habitat in a submarine on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. Her father has created the first man-made black hole to prove that all matter in the universe is made up of infinitesimal particles of time. Greta was looking forward to this adventure, but she gets more than she bargained for. What was supposed to be a trip of a few days turns into a nightmare when an accident with the black hole spins them billions of years into the future, trapping her dad along with the other scientists in a particle of time. Three other kids live on the habitat, and, calling themselves the Aquanauts, they band together with Greta to travel through layers of time in a frantic attempt to save their parents and themselves from being locked under the sea for eternity.

This book was very science-fiction, but it was very mature and intellectual, with well-developed abstract theories and a well-thought-out plot that was obviously very closely examined by the author. Marvelous! Simply Marvelous. It questions the basis of time and involves a deep plot with many volumes and deep characters with many facades and multiple layers. It is somewhat contradictory to the conventional basis of time, which is a very positive thing, and the characters are well-thought out and thankfully unusual. My advice is to run to your nearest bookstore and grab a copy. Once you delve deeply into the crisp, realistic dialogue and the thoughtfully-constructed plot, and get to know the unique, mysterious, and unpredictable characters, you'll have to keep reading!
The book was very gripping from the first page because it was so unconventional. All of the characters were very deep, complex, and unique, and the story was fascinating and out-of-the box. I love how all of the details tie together so perfectly and the details and dialogue made sense, were realistic, and down to Earth. It was suspenseful and fast-paced: a real page-turner! I recommend it highly
I had to read this book for my English class, too, and it was definitely one of the better books we've been assigned to read. The characters and dialogue are realistic, but there are some swears in it, watch out if you are younger than ten. Although it does have some language in it, it's still a great read. It was even better after we had Mr. Lunn come and tell us more about the book. I recommend this book very highly, it's exciting, fast-paced, and an excellent sci-fi adventure story!!!
I am a thirteen year old, and we had to read this book for school. It was probably the best book we have been assigned to read this year. We even had Mr. Lunn Visit our class for like a month or something, and he helped us with a creative writing story. It was better than our usual English class, but still, I'd rather have been at home sleeping and staring at that wonderful invention we call a Tv. But, hey, nothing beats that -except reading- but whatever. At first, it thought this book was okay, because, don't get me wrong, this is not one of my ultimate favorite books, but after Mr. Lunn told us how hard it was to write this, I appreciated it a little bit more. If you take a step back, and look at all of the details that play perfectly in with each other, you get pretty amazed. If you are a sci-fi fan with a hunger for something new and original, you should read The Aquanauts.
