Vowing to read at least one classic a year now that I have retired I picked up the Invisible Man with that goal in mind. Although it was not a difficult read, I did not care much for the story. If you like Science Fiction you may enjoy it however.However having read The Time Machine last year this was definitely much less interesting. Perhaps a book club would enjoy this book if they took the idea of invisibility into account. I did not feel this was H. G. Wells finest.
Great story - classic H.G. Wells! Great buy. Well edited. Recommend this book to those who love to read classic fiction.
