The story opens when a man covered in bandages, wearing a coat, a hat and gloves, walks into an inn and demands a room. This man, a celebrated scientist, has rendered himself invisible, but he is unable to reverse the procedure. His newfound anonymity fills him with rage and a thirst for revenge.
Vicki Morgan's performance is warm and trustworthy. With her charming British accent and her mellifluous voice, Morgan transports the audience to the small English village of Iping.The Invisible Man tells of the possibilities and dangers afforded by scientific advancement. Thrilling and nail-biting, this performance will keep the audience engaged.

Maybe not the greatest, but Wells is certainly one of the first and the greats in the Science Fiction pantheon. Like Plato's Ring of Gyges and other morality tales of special powers corrupting, 'The Invisible Man,' is far more than just a story of invisibility. It is a story of the limits of morality and humanity. We are defined by our limits and the interdependence created by those boundaries. Another book I'm amazed I didn't read years ago. Not the best Wells I've read, but worth the effort.
Vicki Morgan was an interesting pick for a narrator. At first her narration was a tad distracting, but I soon got used to it. Eventually, she did her job and disappeared into the story.
