Isaac Asimov – Fantastic Voyage | Review

Title: Fantastic Voyage

Author: Isaac Asimov

Type: Fiction

Page Count/Review Word Count: 186

Rating: 3.5/5

This book is basically a novelisation of a film from the 60s that I’ve never seen, although I feel as though I must have heard about it because the plot itself is pretty much a cliché. Basically, the future of the world rests inside the head of a man who has a blood clot in his brain, and so a group of people are shrunk down and injected into his bloodstream so that they can go and save him.

It sounds basic now, but I guess it was a game-changer at the time. I also can’t tell you how much of this is taken directly from the movie because I haven’t seen it yet, but I did think that the plot was impressive and it was cool to learn all of the biological stuff that put the ship in danger. There was even a scene where they had to temporarily stop the patient’s heart so that the miniaturised ship could pass through it. Pretty cool stuff.
