Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) wrote the science fiction classics The Time Machine, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and The War of the Worlds, and has often been heralded as a father of modern science fiction. Geary's work is wonderful on this one and I actually like the invisible man in colour as it makes him much more visible and real. The conclusion to the chaos ends as it must but is bittersweet with a slightly humorous twist at the end! Wells' works do well when abbreviated for the graphic format. I must go back and re-read some of Wells in the not too distant future.

This book is one of the classic book of all time.
  • I knew the story already, having seen a movie version of it when I was a child. I didn't remember that the invisible man had character flaws which led him to hurt others and to think only of himself. I kept thinking as I read how strange it would be to actually meet an invisible person. Very unique and entertaining story.

  • The book was supposed to be published by The Folio Society and it was instead an inexpensive printing that was part of a series. Very disappointed and it has made me lose confidence in the accuracy of the descriptions on Amazon.

  • This story was a bit shallow for a classic piece of literature. It was dark all the way through. The Invisible Man was an evil character with no redeeming characteristics. Unlike the monster in Frankenstein who originally had the human desire for companionship and acceptance, this character had sinister motives and nothing else. The only part of this book that I found interesting was the discussion and explanation of how invisibility was achieved. Other than that, I was happy to finish the book so I could read something else.

  • This is NOT the book in the image nor is it Folio Society. While the image is a folio society book it’s not the Invisible Man. The book I received was of a quality (for lack of a better word) I’d expect to find in the youth section of an underfunded public library. I have since bought the Folio Society edition of The Invisible Man from ebay

  • The story itself earns a 5-star. BUT...this version on Kindle is practically unreadable, as the formatting is messed up. Paragraphs frequently broken into chunks, frequently a single word to a line regardless of the font or size font used. There are several other $.99 versions of this classlc available on Kindle, all of which seemed to have avoided this formatting pitfall. Buy one of those instead.

  • The message of this book still rings true today. In a world with ever-changing technology and scientific advances, we must still be careful of the impact of those changes and advances. Their effects can be far-reaching and sometimes can be irreversible.
    As to the writing in this book, the author creates a vivid picture in the mind of the reader of each character and their actions, building the tension with each page. In the days before technology brought us the "moving pictures" of the movies, this author was taking his readers for a suspenseful, action packed ride with only their imagination to paint the pictures in their minds. It is rich in the details of each person, each room, each scene that is before you. I pictured them all in my mind - making my own "movie of the mind". I have seen several movies that were based on this book in the past, but had never read the original book by H. G. Wells. The reading of this book made the best "movie" of all.

  • We must be impressed with Well’s imagination and his story telling ability. While the story is one of mystery, I think it should read by all to provide them an example of the value of the “Golden Rule” unto others as you want done unto you.

  • This is obviously one of the all-time-great works of fictions. For those who haven't read it but have no doubt seen the many Hollywood iterations of the book translated to film, some good, others meh, this is an interesting read. The style is one thing, given the year Wells wrote it, but it's also not what you probably suspect it to be (again, based on the films). This was the case for me, as it was when I first read Dracula and Frankenstein ("It's Fronken-shteen!"; high-five if you know that reference). But the book is fascinating and has a frenetic pace. Wells really encapsulated the nutty mindset of the title character in the prose. Recommend.
