    Therapist Victoria Vick is contacted by a cryptic, unlikable man who insists his situation is unique and unfathomable. Vick becomes convinced that he suffers from a complex set of delusions: Y__, as she refers to him, claims to be a scientist who has stolen cloaking technology from an aborted government project in order to render himself nearly invisible. Unsure of his motives or honesty, Vick becomes obsessed with her patient....

    Amanda says: "Hillarious & Disturbing In (almost) Equal Measure"
    "Thoughtful, haunting and highly engrossing"

    Story

    I just listened to The Visible Man during my Thanksgiving travels and can't stop thinking about it. Klosterman's essays are usually quite funny and entertaining, but the two novels I have listened to (this and Downtown Owl) are filled with sadness and isolation in a most entertaining way. While some of Y's stories are funny, the overall story seems to be an haunting observation of self.

    The alternating narrators were utterly fantastic, and the variations in Y's voice based on his current state were chilling.

    The ending feels pretty open, like a Twilight Zone episode or a Stephen King short story, which I always enjoy.

    I'm currently listening to it a second time, not too unusual for me, and I am hooked.
