Great book. Presents how science should be used in the service of society, not for personal aims


Must read

Not as good as the title.

The name of the book may seem quite intriguing but the storyline is very slow paced and boring. The factual information and the way the man gets invisible is revealed after half of the novel. 😅😥

Good reading book.

Who will read this book they cannot be bored..

Good novel

It is interesting in the first and last parts , however in the middle it is quite boring to read.the text looks as if it has been elongated just for sake of adding length.

The Man Who Was Not To Be Seen

Fantastically Recommended
The Invisible Man of the title is Griffin, a scientist who has devoted himself to research into optics and invents a way to change a body's refractive index to that of air so that it absorbs and reflects no light and thus becomes invisible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but fails in his attempt to reverse the procedure.
Loved the book and recommend this book to all!!!

The Invisible Man

I am compelled by a lack of sleep to keep this review short. A lack of sleep not because I had to stay up and finish off the subject currently under review, but because of the haunting impact it had on me and pretty much, I'm sure, on all the readers who had the good fortune to encounter it.
This book makes the reader ask himself some inevitable questions and endure some inevitable introspection on his/her part.
Narrated masterfully from start to finish, the story of Griffin- the brilliant young scientist and the protagonist, talks about Man's unceasing quest for greatness and superiority.
The fact that Invisibility will be the last quality the reader would associate with the Invisible Man post completion of this novel stands testament to the depth and scope of Wells' writing.
I recommend this book to people of all ages. To dispel all possible doubts, science is never at the foreground in this tale, it just forms the underlying connection and foundation.
Please read it- it is completely worth every reader's while.
