Publisher's Summary

Griffin is a scientist who theorizes that if a person's refractive index is changed to exactly that of air and his body does not absorb or reflect light, then he will be invisible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but cannot become visible again, becoming mentally unstable as a result. The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells was first published in Pearson's Magazine in 1897.

A classic early sci-fi.

The story is very different to what I expected, with the unfortunate scientist being anything but a beleaguered hero. Whether his condition drives him to madness or whether invisibility would bring the worst out in anyone, with a degree of absolute power having its corrupting effect, I am not sure. The story is quite concise, with a straightforward what-if premise driving a short and somewhat unfulfilling story. Nevertheless, an enjoyable book which was well narrated and which I would recommend.
