The Invisible Man H.G. Wells read online review & book description:

An Apple Books Classic edition.

“Alone-it is wonderful how little a man can do alone! To rob a little, to hurt a little, and there is the end.” What would you do if you were became invisible? Would you use that power for good, or would you become consumed with the freedom it afforded you? Griffin, the antihero of H.G. Wells’ classic novel, definitely belongs to the latter school of thought. A misunderstood genius with albinism, Griffin has suffered taunts and isolation his whole life. As he descends into madness, his plans become far darker than simple revenge on those who have wronged him.

In addition to this creepy novel, H.G. Wells-who is widely seen as the father of science fiction-also wrote The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, and The Island of Doctor Moreau;. Besides killer plots, his work provides chilling insight on human nature. The Invisible Manis a story about cruelty, curiosity, and unfettered power. Read it-and you’ll immediately notice its inescapable influence on modern literature, movies, and comic books.

  • My favorite book

    Not much else to say besides it’s amazing
  • Good, solid book

    By Todd Roskop
    The more you read, the faster it gets. It also leaves you asking about what point insanity really starts. It’s like Frankenstein, but better. Would highly recommend
  • Okay.

    Good book. I don’t really read that much but I want to get into reading more, and this was a good place to start.
  • Good, short read

    By DehSoNice
    This was a good and easy read. I liked the storyline and watching how the invisible man moved through life.
  • Left scratching my head

    By CC from GA
    The story started off slowly, picked up speed and then went out with a whimper. What’s the moral of the story? Be careful with what you experiment with? Only use science for the good of mankind and not for personal gain?

    While I enjoy classic novels I found this book to be rather bland when compared to Frankenstein or Dracula or any other number of character books. It’s not bad by any means and worth the read but it loses something in our modern era when there are so many invisible man stories and movies which themselves are not too interesting.
