Interesting short story

The concept of invisibility has been the source of much theory and conjecture. If there was a way to bend light or to have a garment (or skin, as in the case of the Invisible Man), be able to reflect all colors of the visible spectrum, it could be used for good or evil...
The concept of invisibility has been the source of much theory and conjecture. If there was a way to bend light or to have a garment (or skin, as in the case of the Invisible Man), be able to reflect all colors of the visible spectrum, it could be used for good or evil. The story deals with the ramification of unique power and the use of that power. In the case of the Invisible Man, the main character is both brilliant and tragic. You find yourself asking what kind of path you would follow had you been in the Invisible Man's place. This was the first of many classic stories by H.G. Wells, and it is worth the read. I did find it a bit shorter than I would have liked, but Wells was never one to waste words. I still liked it, but not as much as his other works.

    Interesting but not my favorite

    I have always wanted to read this classic and finally got the chance to having aquired this free version. Although I understand it was written in a different time period, I found it difficult to stay interested in the story. I felt there was too much detail in some areas and not enough in others. Additionally , the language of the time is not easy to read in a quick fashion. I found myself rereading many parts to ensure understanding . Overall, I would recommend the book only because it is a classic but otherwise I really didn't enjoy it. Boring and tough to focus on.
