As a 55 yr old woman...this strange shroud of invisibility has been coming for years...even if the book does not offer a factual account...we all have to admit..there is some merit to this topic...
Did anyone tell us?? That at approx. 50ish, the husband who at least attempted to be in good standing and present is no longer caring whether you would like more time with him...no one told me in spite of keeping myself appearance pleasing that the distance would come..
And what about strangers...it is getting pretty bad when you enter a building at the same time while waiting for an elevator with another woman your age, and get completely ignored after commenting on the sweltering heat...now there was a topic you could get anyone to comment on...when you could be seen, but now you are invisible...she stands there and instead of saying..."yes, i agree" she starts to look down and shovel through a handful of envelopes which seem an odd thing to be holding as if you are going to hand them to someone...
We both go to the third floor of the building, where the allergy shots are given...and if i did not think she was rude before...i do now...because of her lack in common courtesy...everyone knows that if someone gets on the elevator first, you allow them opportunity to get off first...at designated floor...this rude and much more unattractive 50 something woman jumps in front of me to get out before i do...stands in line to get her shot...
Now the question ...was she a sociopath or narcissist who did not have courteous intentions...or did she really see me? I truly felt like someone in a sixth sense film with bruce willis...invisible!!
Another oddity...she did not give her stack of envelopes to receptionist...i watched...when she sit down...she no longer had them...could holding envelopes appearing to be distracted her ruse to avoid people in general? She acted like those envelopes revealed a secret she needed to get to in order to take her next breath...when she was waiting for the elevator..
My point...if someone does not want to see you, they won't...even if you are laying next to them...we make choices in life..i have chosen to never ignore anyone sharing airspace with me at that moment...i notice everything...even the paperwork you are holding...you will get a response out of me...i am present and so are you...

I loved Ms. Ray's previous work, but hard as I tried did not enjoy this book. The comparison of women who "feel" invisible vs. actually becoming invisible is ridiculous. It was just too far-fetched for my taste. It couldn't happen and even the most negligent family, friends or strangers would notice there was something amiss. Glad I borrowed this from the library.
