Publisher's Summary

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 Shelleyâ¿¿s Frankenstein comes another undisputed classic of science fiction and horror to stir the imagination and conscience.

How NOT to record an audiobook

I really wish I'd listened to the sample before buying.

The narration is truly awful - read like a shipping report, Mayes' dreary monotone has the sole recommendation of being preferable to his occasional weak stabs at 'enthusiasm'. His attempts to put on accents are as poorly executed & inappropriate as Dick Van Dyke's unrecognisable cockney in Mary Poppins. Yet somehow this is topped by his incredibly annoying habit of adding lengthy & inappropriately-timed pauses mid-sentence, and rounded off with background noises created by his fidgeting.

The most positive comment I can make is that it illustrates how audiobooks are more professionally produced nowadays than they were when this version was unlovingly churned out. Sadly, this is the only audio version of The Invisible Man on Audible. So I'll have to hunt out the paperback, since the thought of sitting through another 5 1/2 hours of this makes me shudder.
