    This is the story of how one angry, naked, sneezing albino managed to terrorize the English countryside To be quite honest, I expected a bit from the people who fended off the Nazis for years But Wells seemed to think his fellow countrymen would be a bit too inept to toss a sheet over this shivering bastard and punch him in the throat Instead This Attention 1 There may be spoilers for this 100 year old book in the review.2 Only comment if you have a WORKING sense of humor.3 Seriously Read 2 again before you correct my review.When I first started reading, I assumed that The Invisible Man would be about a guy who was slowly driven mad by this unusual condition.Nope.He was a world class douchebag long before embarking on his experiment to become see through Although, if I had to point out one major difference between his beginning vs his end Well, I m guessing his dick balls hadn t permanently retreated into his body before he became the World s Meanest Nudist Really, dude Really Winter is not kind to naked folks As every Mad Scientist will tell you, you ve got to plan ahead Mother Nature will not bend to your nefarious whims Turn on the Weather Channel next time, moron.So, Griffin that s the Invisible Man s name discovers a magic not magic formula that allows his molecules to have fewer surfaces for light to refract off, and if he combines that with electrocuting not electrocuting himself with some sort of a radio wave contraption, he will become invisible.Pseudo science, FTW He tested it out on a cat, and it sorta worked Except for the cat s eyes Don t worry, though The cat is fine Kidding it s totally dead.One thing I found interesting was that until his body absorbed food, it remained visible Which led me to spend quite a bit of my afternoon thinking about whether or not you could see his poop moving through his intestines And if it did remain visible, that meant his Kryptonite could quite literally be cheese Think about it, people You could track him if he s constipated Ha I ll bet those assholes at MENSA are totally rethinking that rejection letter now.Yeah, so all they had to do was get a big cauldron or Fry Daddy bubbling with oil, and then cook up a shit ton of mozzarella sticks If placed strategically around the village, they could have had Griffin backed up and praying for prunes in no time Between the groaning and visibly distended intestines, it would have been Problem Solved within two days BOOM Ok, so Wells does his dead level best to make invisibility seem like a curse, but the reality was this was an AWESOME power He s fucking invisible The only reason Griffin wasn t immediately the richest man in the kingdom was due to his a hole personality All he had to do was tell people about his amazing discovery Instead, he shoots himself in the dick trying to keep it a secret Sure, the people in that first hillbilly town might not have been receptive At least, not at first, anywayWitchcraft Kill it with fire, Cletus But show up at a Science Fair or wherever smart people hang out , and he would have been carried off on his peers weak nerdy shoulders I mean, his buddy Kemp was thoroughly impresseduntil he started voluntarily boasting about his somewhat ill thought out crimes, and revealing his idiotic plans for world domination Which, by the way, was the least well planned villain plot everin the history of badly planned villain plots Terror A reign of terror That s it What s the endgame, Griffin Give me all your money Or Terror Make me king of the world Or Terror WTF, man I think you re overestimating yourself a bit thereSure, it s a bit spooky that you can t be seen, but, eventually, even the stupidest of villagers will band together figure out that you can be taken down by a dog with a good noseor cheese Which is pretty much what happens Except for the part about cheese If only they had consulted someone with my level of genius intellect, poor Adye would still be alive Tsk.He stupidly tries to implement his Reign of Terror, and manages to get a few good shots in, but eventually becomes the recipient of the ass beating of a lifetime.Moral of the story Even if you re a genius, don t be a dick.You will inevitably freeze your balls off, catch a nasty cold, and end up bludgeoned to death by people with half your intellect Because all us stupid people know how to wield sticks, goddammit Buddy Read with Jeff, Delee, Evgeny, Tadiana, Stepheny, Will be gentle it s his first time , Dan he found a free copy , Dan 2.0 if he can remember his password , Alissa, Christopher, Steve, Jess, Licha, MIRIAM because she can t quit us , Jenna, latecomer Auntie J, Ginger Carmen cutting it a little close there, Carmen Honorary Buddy Reader Karly The Vampire Ninja LumiLuminSparkly Monster We gotta do this again, guys

    July 2010In a very old episode of This American Life listen here , John Hodgman asks the ultimate question Flight vs Invisibility It s an amusing party topic, a fun little game to play, but there s actually to it than that As a Super Rorschach Test, the question is difficult to answer because the two choices both tell us very different things about ourselves Flight is noble, something we aspire to invisibility is a primal desire, something hidden and mysterious There s even a five stage process to answering 1 Gut reaction, 2 Practical consideration, 3 Philosophical reconsideration, 4 Self recrimination, and 5 Acceptance Or, in short pick your power, explain why, doubt your answer, doubt yourself, and change your answer Repeat as necessary.It was hard not to scoff at his findings Doubt Self recrimination Ha Of course I would choose flight Who wouldn t Get a nice pair of aviator s goggles, a proper trenchcoat capes are sooo white bread , and I d be set I could fly to work instead of driving, and on my days off, I d zip out to Portland, Oregon to visit Powell s Books Pretty sweet deal Exceptfly to work Days off Yeah, I guess I would still need a job, if I could fly Still need to make money Of course, if I was invisible, it wouldn t be a problem Getting out to Portland would be harder, but hey, I could live at Powell s Join the other invisible people who probably haunt the shelves It would be pretty awesome Wait Did I just go through the five stages too Damn you, John Hodgman Thing is, there isn t much to do with flight You can t fight crime without additional superpowers, society still expects you to follow the rules, and you still need to make money but being That Flying Guy Who Works At The Video Store isn t very cool, so you ll probably end up in commercials When I m travelling a thousand miles an hour at five hundred feet, the only thing that gets the bugs out of my teeth is aaaand hold up that tube of toothpaste, smile for the camera Or you can try getting elected to public office, but c mon, you gotta have some dignity From both a practical and literary standpoint, invisibility is far interesting Maybe not better, or safer, or wiser, but certainly interesting More potential for conflict A story about the invisible man who comes to town makes well, made for a better thriller than the fantastical tale about the incredible flying man, and while I doubt H.G Wells ever met John Hodgman at a party, or thought about the question, he probably realized the same thing This is why Mr Wells didn t create Superman which, despite all I said earlier, is probably a big fat shame A Victorian steampunk Super man, pre DC, as written by the great H.G Wells, would ve been awesome, The Best Thing Ever, and now I think I m going to cry Sowhat s your superpower

    I have a feeling if I had read this on my own my rating would have been 3 stars So I would like to thank the following people for making this such an enjoyable buddy read You guys get a whole extra star all of your very own No fighting when you split it among yourselves please Jeff, Stepheny, Anne, Tadiana, Dan 2.0, Jess, Evgeny, Dan, Alissa, Steve, Will, Christopher, Licha, Miriam, Jenna, Auntie J, Ginger, and Carmen A room and a fire On a cold blustery day in February a mysterious man arrives in Iping, West Sussex and checks in at The Coach and Horses.He is bundled in a thick coat wearing a scarf, gloves, and hat his face entirely bandaged eyes hidden behind large glasses Only his nose is visible.and he asks to be left alone As a rule, I like to be alone and undisturbed but in a place where normally nothing exciting ever happens The man s presence causes quite a stir the gossip follows tongues start wagging And when a strange robbery occurs suspicion grows THE INVISIBLE MANA fine example that book smart doesn t always life smart TIM One of the dumbest smart people I have ever read about.

    At some point in Plato s Republic see II, 359b 360d , Glaucon argues with Socrates that men practice justice only out of fear of punishment and that if they could go unpunished, they would commit theft, rape and murder Case in point Gyges, whose legendary ancestor, a poor shepherd, once found a magic ring inside a cave The man pocketed the golden ring and found out that wearing it made him invisible Soon enough, he put this superpower to good use indeed, and went to the royal palace to rape the queen, kill the king and take his place a role model for Oedipus, it seems This myth has been a significant inspiration to H G Wells as well as to J R R Tolkien, in The Hobbit, before the infamous ring became a sort of extension of the diabolical Sauron.H G Wells turns Plato s myth into a science fiction story, where the power of invisibility is not bestowed by a magic ring, but by far fetched experimentation on optics and light refraction The protagonist, Griffin, is an avatar both of Frankenstein and his monster he makes the scientific discovery and applies it to himself, convicted that this will make him virtually invincible and put him above the common law As it turns out, this self experiment ends up in utter disaster.The first half of the novel is told as a mystery, as the villagers of Iping Sussex try to make sense of the appearance and behaviour of the strange man who arrives at the local inn The invisible man then kidnaps a tramp, and a big chase with the mob and constables ensues through which I have been spacing out quite a bit The biochemical explanation of Griffin s invisibility comes right at the middle and is a fascinating part of the novel At this point, Griffin reveals his plan to terrorise the good people However, the authorities catch up with him eventually, and another big chase with the mob and constables around Covent Garden ensues again through which I have been spacing out some .All in all, The Invisible Man is a novel structured in much the same way as The Island of Dr Moreau, with a ternary movement Initial mystery Central revelation Final action, and the same obsession about vivisection and experimentation on living things However, the result is effective and gripping in Wells s previous novel than in this one Nonetheless, whereas Plato s story has become somewhat obscure, this book is now extremely popular in children literature if you are looking for a sexy take on it, however, I would recommend Milo Manara s Butterscotch.

    Oh disillusionment again I thought my troubles were over Practically I thought I had impunity to do whatever I chose, everything save to give away my secret So I thought Whatever I did, whatever the consequences might be, was nothing to me I had merely to fling aside my garments and vanish No person could hold me I could take my money where I found it I decided to treat myself to a sumptuous feast, and then put up at a good hotel, and accumulate a new outfit of property I felt amazingly confident, it s not particularly pleasant to recall that I was an ass One day stranger shows up in Iping looking to rent a room Bizarrely wrapped up in bandages, grumpy and demanding, the stranger is believed by the villagers to be the survivor of some horrific accident.But instead he is a mad scientist who has discovered the secret to invisibility.This book is pretty entertaining Wells is often funny and his anecdotes are exciting You will enjoy reading about how Griffin dealt with his first test subject a white cat he stole from the lady upstairs , how he tried and failed to recruit henchmen, and hearing Griffin spout his mwa ha ha evil schemes with glee You are against me For a whole day you have chased me, you have tried to rob me of a night s rest But I have had food in spite of you, I have slept in spite of you, and the game is only beginning There is nothing for it, but to start the Terror This announces the first day of the Terror.Wow, how scary and exciting Wells is a good author and I enjoyed reading not only about his evil mad scientist MC, but also about science and the method Griffin used to turn himself invisible.For one thing, it is very vivid and striking Listen to Griffin discuss processing a cat And you processed her I processed her But giving drugs to a cat is no joke, Kemp And the process failed Failed In two particulars These were the claws and the pigment stuff what is it at the back of the eye in a cat You know Tapetum Yes, the tapetum It didn t go After I d given the stuff to bleach the blood and done certain other things to her, I gave the beast opium, and put her and the pillow she was sleeping on, on the apparatus And after all the rest had faded and vanished, there remained two little ghosts of her eyes There s also great mad scientist imagery in this novel, complete with test tubes and strange goings on at night He was so odd, standing there, so aggressive and explosive, bottle in one hand and test tube in the other, that Mrs Hall was quite alarmed But she was a resolute woman.The science in here is not real science, so don t break your brain trying to understand how Griffin s bleaching system works Apparently it s difficult to reverse so you don t want to be mucking around with his science anyway Okay, my education in disability studies was ringing here The reason I think this is a spoiler, so I will hide it view spoiler Griffin is an albino This makes him an ideal test subject because he is already lacking pigment with his white skin and garnet eyes But Wells uses Griffin s outward appearance as a manifestation of his insanity, homicidal tendencies and terrible temper Books and films often use a physical flaw as a proof that a person is damaged and defective inside, evil inside I feel like that is the case here.One could also say that Griffin is objectified no matter if he is visible or not Invisible, obviously he is a curiosity and a weirdo bundled up in bandages and gloves and a fake nose, rud to be horribly scarred or disfigured But Griffin must have been an oddity when he was visible as well, with the book often commenting on his red eyes and white hair Perhaps he tried to become invisible in order to escape this constant scrutiny, and was disappointed to find he was under scrutiny than ever He must be stopped his abnormal body and abnormal mind must be policed and he ends up dead and battered on the street hide spoiler

    In this famous 1897 novel by H.G Wells, a reclusive man, swathed in layers of clothing, moves into an English inn He s unfriendly and angry, and when a burglary occurs, people start to wonder As well they might The Invisible Man is a classic read with conflicts galore Between society and the individual Between lust for power and wealth, and the collective good of society Between my literary side that wanted to ruminate on themes of alienation and self absorptionand my nerdling side that just kept wanting to pick apart the scientific underpinnings of invisibility.Why did the invisible man s potions and radiation work, especially on, say, dead body parts like hair and nails Why would it stop working view spoiler when the guy died hide spoiler

    Read for March Reading Sprint 2019 in Buddy Reads.This was the most extraordinary tale It s very simple, said the voice, I m an invisible man Would you vanish if you found the secret to invisibility and try to gain all the advantages you could by concealing yourself from the human eyes Yes Most of us would So did our friend in here I experienced a wild impulse to jest, to startle people, to clap men on the back, fling people s hats astray, and generally revel in my extraordinary advantage.One day, a bandaged man with a very pink nose, wanders to Iping s Coach and Horses and demands a room His peculiar nature and his very oddly covered head soon becomes the talk of the town People seem wary of this strange man who has hundreds of bottles stored up in his room and who only comes out at night like some apparition Of course, we find out that he s rather invisible but most people can t grasp that concept, and we follow the story as everyone s curiosity gets the better of them and the invisible man tries to be left alone and we witness the horrors and tortures he leaves in his wake I experienced a wild impulse to jest, to startle people, to clap men on the back, fling people s hats astray, and generally revel in my extraordinary advantage.This was my first book from Wells and I am not disappointed The writing was very good The irony was magnificent The Invisible man came looking for anonymity and became a legend Wanted to be left alone and got his privacy blown to the winds Wanted to take advantage of his invisibility and ended up wanting to look human again Wanted to be appreciated for his work and ended up becoming everyone s terror Where d you be, if he took a drop over and above, and had a fancy to go for you Suppose he wants to rob who can prevent him He can trespass, he can burgle, he could walk through a cordon of policemen as easy as me or you could give the slip to a blind man As I said before, the way Wells told this story was very impressive We don t get to see any humane qualities of the invisible man We don t even get his name till two third of the book has passed We see him not showing any emotions and even his diaries have nothing personal within their pages People are against him before he has even committed a crime or done any harm Wells presents him as something alien, something not human and maintains that style throughout most of the book When we finally get to know his name and his misadventure from his own account, our feelings change drastically and we get to see where his acts come from So that in the end, we have conflicting thoughts.I went over the heads of the things a man reckons desirable No doubt invisibility made it possible to get them, but it made it impossible to enjoy them when they are got.The Afterward by Scott Westerfeld was excellent and he truly sumarises all that Wells must be trying to portray through his words I also read the Introduction by W Warren Wagar again read it first time before I started the book and it has some really good points to ponder over We see the invisible man going mad with his rage and sensitive temper, but we also notice how the society rejects him before he does any wrong.Is Griffin the former chemistry student of University College, London, and the terrorist of Iping a one dimensional fiend or something complex even, strange as it may seem, a fellow human being Of course, Wells could also be referring to the modern era and the invisibility we all get through social media We seem to act and portray ourselves differently from who we really are Our accounts grant us the advantage of being anonymous We also tend to not think of other online beings as equally human because we do not see them This tends to create problems too Cyber bullying is an excellent example Emoticons and punctuation does help, but again, it cannot be enough The two lessons I learned Don t let your temper get the better of you and never try to be invisible About the Movie I watched the 1933 movie based on this book after I was done with the book It was hardly an hour long, but they threw in a love interest which was bearable, and Mr Marvel was nowhere to be seen Dr Kemp took his role too Mrs Hall was okay but her tendency to scream really seemed unrealistic at the best of times I think they took it the invisible man s rage a little too far at the end and we really didn t get to see the hidden meanings we noticed in the book Still, it was fairly enjoyable and even funny Obviously, the book was way better, not that I regret the movie My Thoughts as I Read There are spoiler tags within this tag, so feel free to open it view spoiler 1 view spoiler A strange man indeed I m guessing all those bandages that baffled Mrs Hall are to save her from horror when she sees him hide spoiler

    This was part of a massive buddy read of this title and usually for a buddy read I do something other than a serious review Jeff, have you ever done a serious review sigh I might do a poor rendering of a passage from the book, kind of in the author s style in order to embarrass a few of my Goodreads friends , who quite frankly usually have it coming or if I m feeling inspired, I ll do something really creative Jeff, do you set some sort of bar for creative Is there a sliding scale Define creative.Shaddup Or I ll just do a list The poor man s review, right, Jeff Grrrr So, the list I ve been toying with would be Ten Non Pervy Things You Can Do with the Power of Invisibility Let s face it, the power of invisibility kind of lends itself to the baser sort of thing and it would be too easy to come up with these types of degenerate examples It would be too easy for you, Jeff.Heh And fellas, men who have shortcomings, being invisible would leave you that much nondescript Just sayin.So non pervy uses of invisibility it is Top Ten Cool Things You Can Do With This Super Duper Power of Invisibility.Hold your horses This poses a problem because, Wells in his fine book points out the inherent issues with this type of ability 1 Unless you have invisible clothes you re constantly running around naked, which is great if you live in a moderate climate, but not so much if you encounter extremes in weather, e.g Rain, snow, fog, cold weather.2 If you eat, you have to stay hidden, because people can see that taco as it is going through your digestive tract So being invisible involves eating next to nothing.3 Anything with an acute sense of smell dogs, Daredevil, Wolverine will be able to instantly detect you So get ready to be bitten, have a billy club bounced off your noggin or gutted.4 People can still hear you, so if you re clumsy or stoned you ll lose that sense of surprise.5 The invisibility process as outlined in the book increases paranoia and enhances mental instability, or was that the fact that Griffin was smoking strychnine Not sure, but if you want to be invisible, kids, don t do drugs and stay in school.6 Without the force field power that usually accompanies invisibility in comics, you could end up like Griffin did in the League of Extraordinary Gentleman.So we ve gone from having a great super power to being a pest Top Ten Annoying Things You Can Do If You Are Invisible1 Strange voices if you there s someone who doesn t have a firm grasp on reality, you can do the voice of God or evil Jiminey Cricket Or find out where Kelly lives and become the voice of Mitchell, although you might be too late for that one she probably already converses with him.2 Smack some annoying kid in the back of the head This should have been number one.3 Team up with a ventriloquist, a circus carney, mountebank or a seer.4 Ring people s doors late at night and instead of running you can stand there and watch their puzzled expressions What fun 5 Drive a car or ride a bike while invisible and post it on the internetz remember vinyl seats and being nude don t really mix for prolonged periods of time.6 Freak out tourists at some echoy place by answering them back.7 Become someone s imaginary friend.8 Take public transportation and signal for every stop.9 Help your favorite sports team win by deflecting a ball or tripping someone no football or hockey of course because naked 10 Haunt a house scary voices, move things around, write stuff on the walls in blood, walk around at night, rattle chains.

About the Author: H.G. Wells

Thomas Henry Huxley at the Normal School of Science Wells earned his bachelor of science and doctor of science degrees at the University of London After marrying his cousin, Isabel, Wells began to supplement his teaching salary with short stories and freelance articles, then books, including The Time Machine 1895 , The Island of Dr Moreau 1896 , The Invisible Man 1897 , and The War of the Worlds 1898.Wells created a mild scandal when he divorced his cousin to marry one of his best students, Amy Catherine Robbins Although his second marriage was lasting and produced two sons, Wells was an unabashed advocate of free as opposed to indiscriminate love He continued to openly have extra marital liaisons, most famously with
