A mysterious stranger arrives in a small Sussex village, covered up from head to toes with a coat, gloves, bandages, goggles and hat. The stranger demands to be left alone, spending most of his time in his room working with chemicals and laboratory apparatus. He quickly becomes the talk of the village as he unnerves the locals. Eventually, though, after a burglary (in which the thief was unseen) the stranger's secret comes out. The Invisible Man becomes a fugitive, obtaining support from accomplices through intimidation and threats. Now you can have this immortal story read to you, in a top-class recording that captures the human drama of a terrified village, the wonder and amazement of clothes and objects that move without visible support, and the intrigue of a manhunt for fugitive who can disappear at will.

Listener Opinions

    " In H. G. Wells' classic novel, a scientist turns himself invisible and wreaks havoc in rural England. This book is a versatile classic because it could be read by someone who is young or who simply wants to read fluff, but it can also be appreciated by more careful readers who are looking for undercurrents of meaning. It's a tragi-farcical romp in 19th century England, but it's also a warning about what people might do simply because they can get away with it. This is a classic that anyone interested in science fiction should read. "

    " H.G. Wells is always interesting. "

    " I would like, now, to read a book by Wells of an invisible man that is good. Wells is a great writer. He captured the fascination of being invisible and formed new ideas about being invisible. One might think being invisible as only advantage but after reading the book you learn that it would only be advantageous to be invisible at will. I liked the Dr. I did not care for the crass personality or the motives of the invisible man. Initially, I wanted the tavern people to treat the man with greater respect and awe giving him a chance to make more humane decisions but, unlike Frankenstein, the man was bad from the beginning. The effect of an evil invisible man on the town was distressing. "

    " Silly idea, but a fun read anyway, aside from the murderous bent of the main character. Who hasn't wanted to be invisible, if only for a little while? Putting the blinders on, I declined to see any deeper messages here and just enjoyed the ride. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 2/4/2014

    " Book was good, up to HG Wells' standards. Different from what I thought it would be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stuart Lutzenhiser | 1/28/2014

    " This work was strangely humorous. Satiric in many places almost to the point of laughing out loud funny. I'm trusting that Wells' writing was proficient enough that the humor was intentional. A scientist discovers a way to make himself invisible and while this makes some of the things he wants to do easier - it has probles that he didn't intend. Like the fact he has to be nude all the time he wants to be invisible and that can be a chilling experience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason Crocker | 1/18/2014

    " "The Invisible Man" by H.G. Wells is about a schientist who turns invisible. And his attempt to become visible again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 1/1/2014

    " The first Classics Book Club choice I have enjoyed so far. It is pretty interesting to see how writing has changed since this one came out. The storytelling style was quite odd. The climax was much better and more like it is now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason Mckinney | 12/22/2013

    " Boring first half; exciting second half. Not quite what I expected, but still a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Minh Minimum | 12/22/2013

    " Seems I enjoy the writing of HG Wells. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassidy Shea | 12/19/2013

    " 3.5. interesting story, enjoyed the language, it kinda lagged in the middle with griffin's several-chapter-long-backstory, but overall worth a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B | 12/6/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. The descriptions of an invisible man where wonderful. I was so taken that Wells could see in his mind, translate to the word, fight scenes and escapes with a well developed, invisible character. Wonderful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah Howard | 12/5/2013

    " Great book. Completely witty, in such a weird way. Enjoyed reading it very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 11/16/2013

    " This book surprised me in being before its time. Wells maintains dramatic tension throughout! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Geoff Sebesta | 6/1/2013

    " Science fiction writers agree; if you were invisible you'd turn evil pretty dang quick. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex | 4/8/2013

    " The book is famous so it is a must read, but boy, is it slow. I suppose time has gone on and books like these fall by the wayside. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chioma | 3/22/2013

    " Not bad. But not great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 3/9/2013

    " The appetite for invisibility indicates a death wish clothed in a struggle for supernatural powers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaynessa Campbell | 12/18/2012

    " This was ok, it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. The ending really didn't give me any resolution to anything, and the point was never clearly given. Just not my kind of book I guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita Boissonneault | 12/28/2011

    " This is always a fun topic of conversation or in the game IF...we make wishes and never realize what the drawbacks of a wish would be, where it would take us or what problems may occur if we really received them.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Titus Fortner | 12/14/2011

    " Another quick read by Wells. I enjoyed how he depicted the difficulties that an invisible man might have, but he put thought into what kind of man would strive so intently to become invisible. A very worthwhile read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sasha Strader | 4/23/2011

    " Meh. This wasn't anywhere as good as The Time Machine in my opinion, but it was tolerable. Not a lot of...well, anything but "Man he's crazy". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cody White | 3/23/2011

    " A fast and entertaining read chock full of morality lessons. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dennis | 12/8/2010

    " An oldie but I enjoyed it as a diversion from more serious sci fi. "
