Tom Swift and the Electronic Hydrolung

Gelesen von Mark F. Smith

(4,492 Sterne; 123 Bewertungen)

The US Government is very smartly letting Tom Swift Jr. handle the recovery of its probe to Jupiter. But a mystery missile suddenly intercepts the probe and splashes it in the South Atlantic.

Faced with a huge search task to find the probe on the ocean bottom, Tom soon realizes that the same shadowy group that attacked the probe is competing to find it, and no holds are barred: kidnap, coercion, and lethal force are all in play.

Under such circumstances, what can Tom do? What he does every time, of course! He invents some utterly cool device to get the job done! And his Electronic Hydrolung is just the beginning! (3 hr 44 min)

awesome book and great narration, I just wish that there were more books by this author there are well over 100 books between Victor Appleton and Victor Appleton II (Victor Appleton II however is actually various different authors) Here's the wiki link to the Tom Swift Jr page:,_Jr. The link to the main wiki entry for all of Tom Swift: Lastly the link to all of the Tom Swift books written including both public domain and non PD books: (yes this review is from my phone and the link's are .m. for ease the of those on tablets and phone's) Better than half of the series aren't in the public domain. However books #1-#25, and #39 of the original series are in PD, and a few others of the "Tom Swift Jr." series are also works in the PD. A quick look shows that Project Gutenburg has a total of 35 books written by Victor Appleton there may be a few more though.

These are such light and fun reading; I enjoy them immensely. Tom is helping the government again, this time to retrieve a rocket. Only his enemies are trying to beat him to it! Time for another Swift invention: the electric hydrolung. Mark Smith is a great reader, his recordings are always excellent. Thanks Mark!

Story is about white males playing with long phallus shaped missiles. Needs to be more inclusive of BIPOCs and people having uteruses. Totally ignored the torture of LatinX Americans by Donald Trump. Needs to be pulled from all libraries and schools. Worse than Dr Suess

Fun story

This was read well and is a fun book to listen to, as are the other Tom Swift books.Lots of technical details for all of the electronic Geeks, lol.

the first series was amazing. Based entirely in science and real world politics. this one is rediculous. the "science" is straight out of Buck Rogers and the enemy country completely fabricated
