“Hallucination” by Isaac Asimov Review

Hallucination takes place at a time in the future although the exact date or era is not specific. The action takes place on Energy Planet, a rocky earth-like planet orbiting a neutron star in the Milky Way.

It important to say that this story is a classic written by Isaac Asimov. And if you are thinking about starting your journey with Isaac Asimov this story is the place to do so. 

This story was written back in 1985, but it carries the ideas related to the present which a lots of work of Isaac Asimov does.

This story is of course about space travel and it involves all the parts which a science fiction movie / book have now on days. So be warned about that. However it doesn’t fail to ask us the big questions about space travel and being a multi planetary species which we will be one day in the future. 

This story have the perception of reality which it needs to get points for. Because a lots of science fiction books and movies now are far from having this.  And most people like to have stuff explained not just give us the “thats just how it is, accept it”.

This story is in the end a quick and enjoyable read, which most science fiction fans will enjoy. There are some parts in this story which seems a little bit forced but it doesn’t take away the fun from this story.

It’s important to say that this story will not fail with making you think about what might happen when humans will become one day a multi planetary species. 

The ending have a twist to it as we all can expect from a science fiction book. 

I give this story 4 / 5
