The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells Book Summary

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.

The Invisible Man (H.G. Wells) Book Reviews

Book is great, this edition is censoredInexplicably, this version uses euphemisms where Wells used the N word. While that word is no longer acceptable in most contexts today, there is no valid reason for this edition to censor Wells original words, no matter how offensive they might be. To censor without notice is an even more diabolical form of revisionism. I hope the producers of this ebook correct their error..Score: 4/5

Slow. Slower. Didn’t care. Exciting ending.I really don’t know what to say about this book. I was hoping for something a little more exciting, I suppose. The truth is that the book is very slow until a little after halfway through. The ending is quite fun and almost worth the sometimes extremely slow pace of the book..Score: 3/5

The Invisible ManThis book is wonderfully written. Great plot, story, theme, and morals. It gets a bit wordy and confusing but stick with it. I enjoyed it very much..Score: 4/5

Invisible manIt is a hard book to put down. I paused me to think about things we wish for that we think would be really great to have until we discover that it would be dangerous or wrong to have it. All things that glitter are not gold as Griffin found out..Score: 4/5

Amazing readThis, given the time it was written and the vocabulary used at the time, was a somewhat challenging read for me. Once I got a hang of the wording and really started to read it I enjoyed it a lot. It’s a very unique story and has great characters. The ending seemed like it could’ve given a little more but this is still an amazing read and would recommend to anyone that wants a intriguing story with challenging vocabulary..Score: 4/5

What you can’t see can kill you...Not surprisingly, I read this book as a paperback. From the first page, I was hooked! I will go ahead and admit that the edition I read was adapted and abridged for modern audiences, but there is something to be said for this. When I was young and still in high school, my teacher read Frankenstein aloud to our entire class. It turned me into such a gigantic fan of the book that I was not only delighted when they finally made a faithful film adaptation of the story in the 90s called Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, but while the edition our teacher read to us was an adapted and abridged edition, I was determined that I would someday track down an original publication with the original text and buy it to read. Thanks to my liking for buying books from thrift stores, this has happened very recently and I’m looking forward eagerly to reading the book. I enjoyed The Invisible Man enough that the same is true of this story. If I ever find a publication of the book as H.G. Wells originally wrote it, I will be ecstatic about reading it! Wells is usually well-known as a science fiction writer, but this fantastic book is a must for horror fans who love love horror classics!.Score: 5/5

A Sympathetic MonsterIt’s a fascinating story! At first it seems to be a scientific experiment gone awry. I became sympathetic with his quandary. Perhaps because of his situation he evolves into a monster, perhaps seeing the futility of the situation and then feeling so trapped that he goes mad and becomes a killer.Score: 4/5

The Invisible ManWhile 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..Score: 3/5

The Invisible ManThis book by H G Wells is really really, good. It’s got a good premise and the build up is quite exciting. It makes you want to continue reading and reaches a crescendo at round about the middle of the novel. Loved it :-) and I’m sure gonna try and watch the latest updated version of the film released in February this year 2020 My opinion... Fantastic !!!! Go read it too..Score: 5/5

Couldn’t put it down!I am completing a classics book challenge and I must say I really enjoyed this one. H.G Wells writes this book with such pace you have to keep reading on to find out what happens next. Similar to Dr Jekyll in the sense that an experiment gives them these new found powers to live as they please and as they please does not involve helping others in anyway! The invisible man is a complete anti hero’s in that H.G Wells left me feeling sorry for this character and actually rooting for him to have his revenge against the other characters for their constant betrayal. I feel that anybody who is consistently spurned by mankind given his scientific discovery could easily become ‘the terror’ he became throughout the text. Such a good book - definitely will reread in the future!.Score: 5/5

SuperfooleryWhilst the numerous action scenes are tiresome to visualise, the monologue of the world’s first sci-fi supervillain is a fantastic discovery of his super powers and maniacal master plan for world domination..Score: 3/5
