I was just trying to remember when I first became a science fiction fan ... I remember reading Fantastic Voyage when I was about 13.
Borrowed the book from my school (Katong Convent in Singapore) library; and remember loving it.

It's possible I'll remember earlier books that belong in the SF genre, but for now (Jan 2016), perhaps this might serve as my first :)
I remember being fascinated by the biology and science incorporated into the narrative.
Hard" Science still has a special place in my heart ... makes it go pitter-patter ;-)

Saw it after seeing the movie. One of Asimov's best. ( )

For a long time I was convinced Asimov had stolen the idea for this book directly from my mind...We see the characters miniaturized and then injected into a body in an effort to save the life of a famous scientist. Passively, we also learn a lot about the workings of the human body along the way. The film is just screaming to be re-made now that we so much better facility for special effects. ( )

Boring and overly simple. Almost zero character development. A huge disappointment for an Asimov novel. ( )

It was an old plane, a four-engine plasma jet that had been retired from active service, and it came in along a route that was neither economical nor particularly safe.
