I think it's impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves.

The Invisible Man

Genre: Science fiction / Historical Fiction / Crime
A man comes across a magnificent discovery.  He discovers that man can become invisible, and in doing so he turns himself invisible.  Griffin becomes known as the invisible man, but also is deemed a criminal.

Back Cover:
The Invisible man is the fascinating take if a brash young scientist who, experimenting with himself, becomes invisible and then criminally insane, trapped in the terror of his own creation.

I thought this book magnificent.  I will say that it was pretty slow going to begin with, but the story quickly picks up.  It seems at times metaphorical.  I don’t want to give anything away, but I think this is worth a read if you’re an H.G. Wells fan…and even if you aren’t.  If you’re interested in the hardships and what it means to be invisible from a darker perspective, this book is for you.

Shame on anyone who thinks evil of this.
