Description
One night in the depths of winter, a bizarre and sinister stranger wrapped in bandages and eccentric clothing arrives in a remote English village. His peculiar, secretive activities in the room he rents spook the locals. Speculation about his identity becomes horror and disbelief when the villagers discover that, beneath his disguise, he is invisible. Griffin, as the man is called, is an embittered scientist who is determined to exploit his extraordinary gifts, developed in the course of brutal self-experimentation, in order to conduct a Reign of Terror on the sleepy inhabitants of England. As the police close in on him, he becomes ever more desperate and violent.In this pioneering novella, subtitled "A Grotesque Romance," Wells combines comedy, both farcical and satirical, and tragedy--to superbly unsettling effect. Since its publication in 1897, The Invisible Man has haunted not only popular culture (in particular cinema) but also the greatest and most experimental novels of the twentieth century.

display_descriptionIn the midst of a snowstorm, a stranger arrives in an English country inn, seeking solitude. Soon, inexplicable goings-on at the Coach and Horses bring fear to the village. Two very different men - the scholarly Dr Kemp and gentleman-of-the-road Thomas Marvel - are drawn into terrible events beyond their understanding. A man named Griffin has defied the laws of nature, and is about to embark on a reign of terror. For he is ... The Invisible Man.
