Fantastic Voyage

By Isaac Asimov
Fantastic Voyage by Isaac Asimov digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A fabulous adventure into the last frontier of man!

Attention! This is the last message you will receive until your mission is completed. You have sixty minutes once miniaturization is complete. You must be out of Benes’ body before then. If not, you will return to normal size and kill Benes regardless of the success of the surgery.

Four men and one woman reduced to a microscopic fraction of their original size, boarding a miniaturized atomic sub and being injected into a dying man's carotid artery. Passing through the heart, entering the inner ear where even the slightest sound would destroy them, battling relentlessly into the cranium.

Their objective . . . to reach a blood clot and destroy it with the piercing rays of a laser.

At stake . . . the fate of the entire world.

Thinking Face“This story is so much fun, exploring the difficulties of voyaging through the human body on the bacterial scale. Our main character Grant is a believable and relatable detective. He is afraid and confused, but he keeps the mission in the front of his mind. Keep your mind sharp while enjoying Asimov’s description of the magnified circulatory, there’s danger outside the obvious risks of Miniaturization. As this was written in the 60’s, we observe a bout of sexism towards the only female character, Cora Peterson, an astute and capable doctor’s aid. Although the doctor stands up for Miss Peterson, we also see her stand up for herself several times throughout the book. I thought her storyline was sadly predictable but nonetheless enjoyable.”

About Isaac Asimov

Isaac Asimov began his Foundation series at the age of twenty-one, not realizing that it would one day be considered a cornerstone of science fiction. During his legendary career, Asimov penned more than 470 books on subjects ranging from science to Shakespeare to history, though he was most loved for his award-winning science fiction sagas, which include the Robot, Empire, and Foundation series. Named a Grand Master of Science Fiction by the Science Fiction Writers of America, Asimov entertained and educated readers of all ages for close to five decades. He died, at the age of seventy-two, in April 1992.
