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.

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
