Invisible Man

Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison Book Summary

Both a deeply compelling bestselling novel and an epic milestone of American literature.

The book's nameless narrator describes growing up in a black community in the South, attending a Negro college from which he is expelled, moving to New York and becoming the chief spokesman of the Harlem branch of "the Brotherhood", before retreating amid violence and confusion to the basement lair of the Invisible Man he imagines himself to be.  

Originally published in 1952 as the first novel by a then unknown author, it remained on the bestseller list for sixteen weeks, won the National Book Award for fiction, and established Ralph Ellison as one of the key writers of the century. The book is a passionate and witty tour de force of style, strongly influenced by T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, Joyce, and Dostoevsky.

- Boring1 star

Boring boring boring every time I pick up this book I literally fall asleep I can barely keep my eyes open I usually love to read but this book made me hate reading I’ve never ever hated a book as much as I hate this book.

- Inspiring Book!!!5 star

I read this book about 10 years ago,and this book tells about a person that want to be part of something.The people that's in the group is basically using him,and he's not taking notice,that they are using him,until the end.

- Loved all the way through5 star

Though a drag in the beginning this novel is a reflection of all human's desire to be a part of something. As it picks speed readers might want the "whiny" protagonist to just conform and let things be, but he can't and that's his flaw. We all try to be different but in the end what will we be remembered by or will we be remembered at all. Take this out from ur local library instead of buying it. The frustration of knowin the main character is u will make u regret buying it.

- Very boring1 star

It's a story about some guy that whines that he's metaphorically "invisible" that drags on for too long. It would've been way more interesting if he actually was invisible.

- Greatest book5 star

There is nothing to say but that this book totally changed my life. Many are afraid to read it because of its life-changing quality but that is why you should read it. It's about finding yourself a lot more than it is about race.
