Publisher's summary

Featured title on PBS's The Great American Read in 2018

Having devoted his studies to optics and refraction, an impulsive scientist named Griffin has rendered himself invisible. Unable to reverse the effects, his struggle to survive grows desperate until he realizes that there are benefits to living out of the public eye. Increasingly isolated, he soon spirals into a life of crime and degenerates into madness. He can't see that he has become his own worst enemy.

Exploring the loss of identity and the willful disappearance of conscience and morality, H. G. Wells crafted one of his most suspenseful and cautionary tales, which continues to intrigue to this day.

It was one of the classics I’ve always meant to read

I had been planning on reading the story for decades ever since I was a young boy but somehow I just never did it. I saw that it was part of my prime account so I picked it up and listen to it in my spare time. Although the story is 120 years old and some of the languages no longer used in a way it’s spoken in a story. It is still very very understandable. I would recommend it to everyone who has been thinking about it I just hasn’t done it like myself.
