The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man 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.

Book Reviews


Very good5 star

Very descriptive. I had a fun time reading it page by page I could barely stand to stop reading it, so much in fact I was agitated when I finally did have to go to sleep at 1 a.m. Very good book. Highly recommended55

It 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.45

Oldie but goodie5 star

A Sympathetic Monster4 star

It’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 killer45
