Chris Ah, the memories! Those were the days! I can enjoy a well-written, well-structured, well-pondered and absolutely ludicrous sci-fi novel. We need the air, though. Otherwise, we suffocate. Why not just surface?
Everybody glares. Think about how big the atoms are at our current size. We can shrink the air down to our level! Objectively speaking, that tube is about as wide around as an antibody molecule. Ever heard of surface tension? Everygody gawks at Michaels.
Is anyone listening? And so on. The constant scientific excuses in this book just make the premise more silly, and distract from its promise: cell-fighting action and spectacular imagery. Yes, I know that light waves would have a hard time reflecting properly in tiny eyes like these. I still wanna see some giant red blood cells, dammit! But no. Why, do you ask? Apparently, radiation wavelength increases as you grow smaller in relation the objects from which it emanates.
Well, okay. That makes sense. If light expanded relative to them at the rate at which they shrunk, those cells would be the color of - and let me do some calculations here - radio waves. FM to be exact. Calm down. Instead, he fills a huge amount of this work - huge at least for a book called "Fantastic Voyage" - with dialogue. What this books suffers from is a lack of the sense of wonder necessary to deliver this kind of premise. What it scores in is characters.
Ditto Carter and the other guys in normal-size land. And I have to give Harry Kleiner credit, for being able to push these guys into every part of the human body when a trip from the neck to the brain was their original plan. He was a man with true inventiveness and manipulative skill. He sent these characters on the scenic route.
