Invisible Man
Invisible Man | H G Wells
From the twentieth century's first great practitioner of the novel of ideas comes a consummate masterpiece of science fiction about a man trapped in the terror of his own creation. A stranger emerges out of a freezing February day with a request for lodging in a cozy provincial inn. Who is this out-of-season traveler? More confounding is the thick mask of bandages obscuring his face. Why is he disguised in such a manner? What keeps him hidden in his room? The villagers, aroused by trepidation and curiosity, bring it upon themselves to find the answers. What they discover is not only a man trapped in the terror of his own creation, but a chilling reflection of the unsolvable mysteries of their own souls. My fantastic stories do not pretend to deal with possible things. They aim indeed only at the same amount of conviction as one gets in a gripping good dream. H. G. Wells With an Introduction by W. Warren Wagarand an Afterword by Scott Westerfeld"

One of the classic “a scientist drinks a potion and things go terribly wrong” stories. I have to admit I didn‘t love the book, but adored the old Universal movie!

People often say sociopaths walk unseen among us. In the case of the Invisible Man, this was literal. Wells portrays the common citizen as a dunce. This was a short, action-packed bit of science-fiction. It is perfect for the reader afraid of in-depth scientific instructions.

4 ⭐️s for both!
I absolutely love H.G. Wells. Both of these stories leave the reader contemplating the true nature of humans. In The Invisible Man, we‘re left wondering if Griffin‘s invisibility, and thus separation from his fellow humans, is to blame for his subsequent loss of humanity. In The Island of Dr. Moreau, Prendick and the reader are left to wonder if we humans are really so far removed from our animal brethren.
My favorite quote from ⬇️

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm either is from The Island of Dr. Moreau, “Then I look about me at my fellow men. And I go in fear.”

There are some racial slurs in here that really caught me off guard, but otherwise this was pretty entertaining. I have no idea if the optic research Griffin delved into to make himself invisible has any merit, and he was really just a cranky douche of a guy. 🤷‍♀️

I‘m not the only one who‘s seen this recently but I HAVE to post about The Invisible Man starring the amazing Elisabeth Moss.
It doesn‘t resemble the book by H.G.Wells or the original film but it‘s intense, frightening, and it kept me gripped all the way through. It‘s beautiful filmmaking with an ugly storyline of abuse at the center; my heart ached for CeCe. I loved the horror and I loved the ending.

So. I had watched this one earlier this week. It was a great movie! I really enjoyed it. But of course it is very very very loosely based on the book (the only real similarities is he made himself invisible!) Ha But I am glad I saw it! It was on my radar for a while. #Scarathlon2020 #TeamSlaughter @clwojick

My favorite classic would be Dracula with The Christmas Carol being a close second.

I read this book years ago, but completely forgot the plot. So done re-reading in an #audiobook. Picked this book as it has less characters and short story. Otherwise I will lose my track😛, as I am not very good at listening. I wonder about the idea of invisible man, that too centuries ago! But I dint like the main character 🤨 I wish the invisible man could have been a super hero.

EmilyM Sorry....hit send too fast! I am teaching this to my sophomores right now! It's good--I didn't know there was a movie...how is it? 3y
BeansPage @EmilyM actually they made The Invisible Man with Claude Rains and then they made 4 sequels. This is one of the sequels. the first one is very well done. And for the time. The special effects are absolutely incredible! This one has Vincent Price in it and is also very good. The other three are just okay. But that is my opinion. 😊 3y
EmilyM Thanks! Four sequels, huh?! Wow! I am enjoying teaching the book. This is the first year my department is teaching it. The kids have gotten into it, too. 3y

Just finished reading this one for an audio book, and I had quite forgotten how altogether funny it was. The subtitle of this book is "A Grotesque Romance", and I did not recall any romantic involvements. I presume the author used the word as drama, story, etc. Still it reads as well today as when it was first written. A load of fun. My reading should be available for public consumption in about two weeks.

Well... at least it was short, and the narration was good.

There were a couple of goosebump-inducing moments, and I enjoyed the creepy atmosphere, but I wasn‘t overly impressed with the story and didn‘t like any of the characters.

“‘Why!‘ said Huxter, suddenly, ‘that's not a man at all. It's just empty clothes. Look! You can see down his collar and the linings of his clothes. I could put my arm -‘

He extended his hand; it seemed to meet something in mid-air, and he drew it back with a sharp exclamation. ‘I wish you'd keep your fingers out of my eye,‘ said the aerial voice.”
