H. G. Wells: The Invisible Man


The Invisible Man was the novel today!
Only 156 pages and a 4-page afterword.
This novel was a gift from my parents.
You can find all my H. G. Wells reviews here.

“This masterpiece of science fiction is the fascinating story of Griffin, a scientist who creates a serum to render himself invisible, and his descent into madness that follows.”

I really liked Wells’ prose in this novel. It reads so easy, so fast and it is very intriguing.
Griffin’s descent into madness and his increasing brutality and violence make this a very, very suspenseful novel.
His sudden outbursts, the slowly culminating anger and his unexpected, sudden changes in mood are actually terrifying.
The atmosphere Wells created is amazing. Fear, expectation and trepidation on every page.

Definitely recommended!

Happy reading.
