Audible Editor Reviews

H. G. Wells’ tale of a corrupt scientist’s "reign of terror" explores one of the human psyche’s darker motives - the desire to act as one pleases without restraint or threat of punishment. In stark, foreboding tones, performer Jim Killavey captures the wanton arrogance of Wells’ invisible anti-hero, Griffin, and the oppressive paranoid fear that haunts the English village of Iping, cowering under threat of an undetectable menace. Wells’ formative classic lays thematic foundations that still resonate throughout science fiction: dystopian future shock, the destruction of community and tradition at the hands of technology, and the hubristic pursuit of knowledge are all scrutinized. Nevertheless, Griffin’s tragedy is of his own making, as he neglects the humanistic aspirations belying his research and falls prey to power’s corrupting influence.

Publisher's Summary

In this classic science fiction novel, a young chemist discovers how to make himself invisible and seeks the aid of a fellow scientist in creating a "reign of terror." He finds, however, that he cannot become visible again and that his invisibility comes at a high price.
