Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.


“Alone-it is wonderful how little a man can do alone! To rob a little, to hurt a little, and there is the end.” What would you do if you were became invisible? Would you use that power for good, or would you become consumed with the freedom it afforded you? Griffin, the antihero of H.G. Wells’ classic novel, definitely belongs to the latter school of thought. A misunderstood genius with albinism, Griffin has suffered taunts and isolation his whole life. As he descends into madness, his plans become far darker than simple revenge on those who have wronged him.


In addition to this creepy novel, H.G. Wells-who is widely seen as the father of science fiction-also wrote The War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, and The Island of Doctor Moreau;. Besides killer plots, his work provides chilling insight on human nature. The Invisible Manis a story about cruelty, curiosity, and unfettered power. Read it-and you’ll immediately notice its inescapable influence on modern literature, movies, and comic books.

It’s okay

Good story.

The quintessential mad scientist story

With a knack for capturing the intersection of the dramatic with the extremely mundane, this quintessential mad scientist story is an absolute caper. Almost as a bonus, the ‘science’ in this piece of science fiction is at least plausibly absurd and has a basis in real optics. The Invisible Man absolutely deserves its place as a classic of science fiction.
