The Invisible Man: Classic, Yet Antagonistic

The Invisible Man (Dover Thrift Editions)The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An intricate work, with several twists and turns. Certainly engaging on the question of human psychology, specifically on the potential corruption that the power of invisibility might bestow upon a man, but overall, a less compelling story than others of H. G. Wells’ works. Perhaps this was due to my increasing distaste for the Invisible Man (the character) as time went on, and the final twist in the tale came too late to win me back fully.

Even so, a good read, and a classic. Well worth the time spent.
