Product Description

About the Author

Herbert George Wells (1866 -1946) was an English author, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics and social commentary. Together with Jules Verne, Wells has been referred to as "The Father of Science Fiction". Wells was an outspoken socialist and sympathetic to pacifist views, although he supported the First World War once it was under way, and his later works became increasingly political and didactic. His middle period novels (1900-1920) were less science-fictional; they covered lower-middle class life (The History of Mr Polly) and the 'New Woman' and the Suffragettes (Ann Veronica). --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable. 3 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The Invisible Man is the fascinating tale of a scientist named Griffin, who creates a serum which renders him invisible. At first he thinks himself a genius, then when going about the town he realises the many problems which come with being invisible. So he heads to the Coach and Horses Inn in Iping to figure out the cure.

At first the book is simply a string of events, and personally I found it very boring. But once the Invisible Man finds himself in Dr. Kemp's home, I was hooked. It was full of suspense and mystery. I was quite sad when the book ended like it did, but if I think about it realistically it couldn't have ended any other way.

If you do decide to read the book, struggle through the beginning chapters. You'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't see me 9 May 2010
By bernie TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I grew up on all the invisible man movies and still think of him as Claude Rains. I was surprised in the similarities and differences the book has to the movie. The scenes are rearranged from the book to make visual (or invisible) sense as a movie script.

A man all warped up in bandages except for his large pink nose requires a room at the inn and pays well. Slowly the Innkeeper and her companions suspect there is more to his than just a man with bandages. Everyone in a while they glimpse light where there should not be. And the stranger is so cranky that the money may not be worth the trouble of keeping him. Soon there are strange happenings and the cat is out of the bag sort of speaking.

The trail leads to murderer and a possible reign of terror. Read more to find out where the secret is reviled and how a man named Griffin got in this situation.

If I had read this story a year ago I would have said it was a fairly well put together sci-fi story. I would just enjoy the writing and wonder how H.G. came up with the idea. However now after reading much of H.G.'s political writings I see that this is a thinly veiled social commentary. We find that unlike the movie where Griffin goes mad in the invisibility process, that in the book Griffin was always amoral and anything stressful could set him off. Also, somewhere out there is a couple of floating eyes that belong to a cat.

Now one habit that .G. has in most of his tales is that just when you think he is finished on the subject, he will go off in another direction with some sub plot he has slipped in earlier. Therefore, what should have been a short story becomes a novel. Another good example of his witting style can be found in "The Food of the Gods."

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with this book 22 Feb 2014
By Richard
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A disappointing book more like a children’s comic than a literary classic. Not much more I can say about this comic book.
