CGally's Thoughts:

I don't remember this book that well, but there are number of things I do remember about it that I found interesting.

Although you are made very small (and put into a floating vessel of sorts) due to a scientist's experiment, your size can get even smaller than it might seem at first. In fact, one ending involves you becoming so small that you are about the size of a blood cell, and you decide to live in the new environment since you don't have a choice.

One interesting twist is when you enter the scientist's body in your vessel.

I'd have to reread this book again to get more details, but there's some real creativity in there.

yunakitty's Thoughts:

Another thing that is really interesting about this book is the fact that you can also become huge (macroscopic? hee hee...)

A little knowledge of the scientific world can help you make better choices in this book. For example, I knew better than to jump onto a "jelly blob" in the pond when I was teeny tiny (it turns out to be an amoeba that chomps you up!)

This book can get pretty far out there with quark theories and the like, and of course it's a totally unbelievable premise, but I kept telling myself, "It's just a book, just pretend that it's possible to breathe when you are smaller than air molecules..."
