Book Excerpt: 
. . .Andy Foger, you let me out!" shouted the young inventor; and as Andy's mocking laugh came to him faintly through the steel sides of the submarine, the imprisoned lad beat desperately with his hands on the smooth sides of the tank, vainly wondering how his enemy had discovered him.




Chapter Five Mr. Berg is Suspicious

Not for long did the young inventor endeavor to break his way out of the water-ballast tank by striking the heavy sides of it. Tom realized that this was worse than useless. He listened intently, but could hear nothing. Even the retreating footsteps of Andy Foger were inaudible.

"This certainly is a pickle!" exclaimed Tom aloud. "I can't understand how he ever got here. He must have traced us after we went to Shopton in the airship the last time. Then he sneaked in here. Probably he saw me enter, but how could he know enough to work the worm gear and close the door? Andy has had some experience with ma. . . Read More

I'm not sure at what age I read Tom Swift, but I remembered nothing at all, except that he was a boy-inventor. So, I wanted to check it out.

The book had a lot of twists and turns -- I suspect chapters may have been serialized in a newspaper or magazine. It completely lacks teenage angst and cynicism

I read the Tom Swift Sr. books as a child and again when I got my Kindle in 2010. They are an easy read and enjoyable. It is interesting to see how writing has changed since these books were written.

This is the latest book that I have read in the original series about the adventures of Tom Swift. After his adventures on the land, in the air, and on the surface of the water, he next went below the surface of the water, in a submarine that his father invented. It was originally designed and built

Gasp as our hero fixes the boat just in time saving everyones life!!! But will they get to the sunkin ship in time!?!?!? (I don't even know if I

At age five Dad got a house in unincorporated Kane County, Illinois. Although far from his job at Honeywell in Rosemont, he snapped it up because of a G.I. subsidy which had the government pick up the tab on the downpayment. The Meadowdale development was so new that there were no lawns, no sidewalk

Tom and his dad invented a submarine and did a race for gold against other people. Luckily Tom’s rudder system was better than the enemy shi and they won!

6 out of 10

Really interesting to read a 105 year old book on my 61st birthday. Part of it I read in my "man cave" on the 3rd floor. The story was not challenging but the prose was so polite, either because of who wrote it or the times of 1910. Interesting but don't need to do this again. Tom Swift the adventur

Not horrible fast-paced adventure fiction, aimed at early teens. But I'm afraid the scientific inaccuracies piled up too fast and deep for me to ignore them, and I can't give it more than 2 stars. I know it was written in 1910, but diving suits and sharks and giant squids at 2 miles depth? Cruising

Generally I find the Tom Swift novels moderately entertaining as a peek into the past of 100 years ago.

I'm not always sure if I know more than the authors because my education was better than theirs, or if I'm just older and had more time to learn. Or maybe they didn’t want to strain their readers’
