On a freezing February day, a stranger emerges from out of the gray to request a room at a local provincial inn. Who is this out-of-season traveler? More confounding is the thick mask of bandages obscuring his face. Why does he disguise himself in this manner and keep himself hidden away in his room?

Aroused by trepidation and curiosity, the local villagers bring it upon themselves to find the answers. What they discover is a man trapped in a terror of his own creation and a chilling reflection of the unsolvable mysteries of their own souls.

In the tradition of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein comes another undisputed classic of science fiction and horror to stir the imagination and conscience. It is considered by many to be one of the greatest science fiction horror stories ever written.

    " This book was pretty boring. There were really no likable characters until about 3/4's in when you meet the doctor, but it was ok. "

    " In case you have not read this book yet, I will warn you that I may give up some details of the book that you wish you wouldn't have read in my review. I will not give away the ending, however. The title of the book gives a big hint as to what the book itself is about. A scientist, Griffin, makes a great breakthrough and turns himself invisible, after he first tested his experiment on a cat, which also turned invisible. After this, Griffin goes out on a quest to try to make himself visible again. This journey takes him to a couple of different towns where he causes a lot of trouble. When Griffin starts to cause a scene at the first hotel he stopped at is where the book starts to pick up action. He tries showing his invisible arm to a man, and later undresses himself to escape from a group of men who are trying to hold him captive. The word is spread that there is an invisible man on the loose. Griffin finds this a huge problem. He does not want people searching for him while he tries to find a way to reverse the effect of his invisible experiment. This book goes on to further explain Griffin's journey to become visible again. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good action, mixed with some science, books. "

    " In honor of Halloween i thought I'd listen to this- interesting... not going to be a favorite. Now with all we know about chemicals and their affect on the body in general- I can't help but wonder if his temper was a result of all he had to do to become invisible. I'm glad to have added it to my bookshelves- creepy but thought provoking. "

    " It's by H. G. Wells so of course it was good. I really felt for Griffin (the invisible man). All he wanted was to be left alone to conduct his work but the stupid people had to keep sticking their noses in where they weren't wanted. I admit that his intentions weren't the greatest but really at the beginning he wasn't hurting anyone. Anyway the moral is that if you insist on bothering a lone wolf it's your own fault when he bites you. . . Or that should be the moral anyway. "
