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.
