H.G. Wells' 1897 science fiction novella The Invisible Man tells the story of a scientist named Griffin who theory is this: if the refractive index of a person's body is adjusted to exactly that of air, then his body will not absorb or reflect light and he will become invisible. Griffin subjects himself to a procedure to do this, becoming an invisible man. But he cannot manage to reverse it and become visible once more, resulting in his mental unhinging.

classic science fiction novel and a prophetic warning about technology.

There are several reasons why this book continues to fascinate readers more than a hundred years after it was first published. On one level it is a propulsive action story that catches the reader up in its high-pace and occasional explosive scenes. One another level, it raises questions on the nature of evil and whether social expectation produces good behavior. Whatever you are looking to get out of a novel, there is a good chance you will find it here.

While this is not Wells' best novel it still is a good return for your money. Chilling, extremely atmospheric and considering that it is a short read this novel is perfect for a evening at home with your back to a open window, just to get the chills running through you.

Brilliantly chilling thriller by H.G. Wells. This book is the perfect example of how sometimes the things we find most terrifying are the ones we can't even see. A definite must read for sci-fi and horror fans alike.
