    Ralph Elllison's Invisible Man is a monumental novel, one that can well be called an epic of 20th-century African-American life. It is a strange story, in which many extraordinary things happen, some of them shocking and brutal, some of them pitiful and touching - yet always with elements of comedy and irony and burlesque that appear in unexpected places.

    Robert says: "You've been waiting, buy it, you won't be sorry..."
    "This is WELL worth it!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Invisible Man to be better than the print version?

    I read this classic as an undergrad ( more than 30 years ago) I have only fond memories of the printed version, however, listening to it again after so many years is very enjoyable.


    What other book might you compare Invisible Man to and why?

    One needn't try to make comparisons to the classic genius of Ralph Ellison. If you like this genre, this is well worth your purchase.


    What about Joe Morton’s performance did you like?

    This performance was riveting...Lot's of emotion. I was well entertained.
