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.
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.
