Pressestimmen

“I personally consider the greatest of English living writers [to be] H. G. Wells.” —Upton Sinclair

Synopsis

With his face swaddled in bandages, his eyes hidden behind dark glasses and his hands covered even indoors, Griffin the new guest at The Coach and Horses is at first assumed to be a shy accident-victim. But the true reason for his disguise is far more chilling: he has developed a process that has made him invisible, and is locked in a struggle to discover the antidote. Forced from the village, and driven to murder, he seeks the aid of an old friend, Kemp. The horror of his fate has affected his mind, however and when Kemp refuse to help, he resolves to wreak his revenge.

Wer dieses Buch aufgrund des Filmes "The leage of extraordinary gentlemen" (2003) liest, wird erstaunt sein wie sehr die Geschichte und der Charakter der Hauptperson für den Film verändert wurde.
Das Buch liest sich leicht, ist nicht besonders lang, aber spannend, wenn auch einige Wendungen der Geschichte absehbar sind.
Übrigens war dieses Buch auch die Grundlage für die Filme "The Invisible Man" (1933) und dessen Remake "Hollow Man" (2000) mit Kevin Bacon.
Kurzzusammenfassung: ein Wissenschaftler macht sich unsichtbar. Anfangs geniesst er die damit einhergehenden Vorteile, doch mit der Zeit überwiegen die Nachteile und er sucht verzweifelt ein Gegenmittel um die Wirkung umzukehren. Die Formel treibt ihn fast in den Wahnsinn und er terrorisiert mordend eine ländliche Region.

This is a classic tale about a researcher who, while he was the equivalent of a graduate student in physics, discovers a treatment for making himself invisible (using chemicals and mathematical expressions containing four dimensions). He quickly discovers how dependent he is on others and that he doesn't have the power he thought he would. I had always thought, based on what I had heard about the film based on this book, that the invisibility process made the researcher (Griffin) mad. However, upon reading the novel, I find that Griffin is morally and ethically bankrupt long before he takes the treatment. His initial reasons for becoming invisible is to avoid paying his rent (as he sneaks out of the building, he sets it on fire as a "lesson" for his landlord). All he thinks about is himself and to have power over others. He steals from his father who, since it wasn't his money, commits suicide. Griffin goes to the funeral simply because it is expected of him; but, he feels no remorse. He is a man who feels that the end (his power) justifies the means. Wells clearly has Griffin as the villian.

This is a very good book, and as another reviewer has stated, Wells gets the most out of his words, an astonishing amount of detail and plot is put into what is really a rather short story. One of the great things about this book is that Wells takes a seemingly impossible task (making humans invisible) and makes it seem possible. After we find out a lot about Griffin we learn about his adventures and difficulties as the invisible man. The main themes of the book seem to be the horrors that would abound if a major discovery was found by an evil person before a person who would use it for good causes. Also, it is a definite attack on egos and narcissism, as most of Griffin's terrible acts were spurred on by his needs and his disregard for others.

I really enjoyed reading this novel. I liked the plot and the engaging way in which it was written. Personally, I hoped that the invisible man would win after all because I didn't think him evil or anything. Just a curious mind going new ways ;)

A stranger arrives in Iping, where he books a private room in the pub. His behaviour intrigues the locals. He is foul-tempered and rude, and never removes the bandages covering his face. He remains confined to his room, working on mysterious experiments. We gradually discover that he is a scientist called Griffin who has made himself invisible, and is now desperately trying to regain visibility. He fails, goes on the rampage, and terrorises the surrounding countryside. He kills, and in the end is killed.
Like in other stories by H.G. Wells, there is only one impossible hypothesis: that of invisibility which is then thrown into the ordinary world and the created fantasy becomes as real and vivid as a dream and inhabits the reader's mind. What matters to the author is probably the impact that a scientific invention would have on the world and the way in which people would react to it. In "The Invisible Man" he shows the unforgiving cruelty of the mob to the unusual, to the hunchback, the cross-eyed, the disfigured or the simpleton. The invisible man is just a powerful allegory for such people and that is why the novel has remained so powerful through time. It is also a clever study of character because Griffin strives to make himself unusual by becoming invisible and thereby placing himself above his fellow men and he becomes a man who sees in himself and in his uniqueness a power over others, a man possessed with the element that dictatorship is made of.
Edward Hardwicke's fantastic reading of the novel for BBC Audiobooks is highly recommended.

Imagine an insane lunatic wandering around your town. Sounds creepy, eh? On top of that, say the man is invisible! That is the basic plot behind The Invisible Man. This story is an excellent piece of science fiction literature by one of the world's most reknown sci-fi authors-H.G. Wells. At the beginning of the story, the invisible man appears (or not!) in a small village in England called Iping. He presents himself wearing bandages around all of his features to hide his invisibility. After an extended stay at a local inn, the man begins to draw suspicion from the citizens of Iping. Soon the man's secret us uncovered by the suspicious townspeople. After a wild getaway sequence, the invisible man must escape the angry people of Iping. In the story, there are many different twists and turns. There are plenty of exciting details that make the magnificent ending even more unpredictable. Another plus for the story is the outstanding web of characters. Some of the characters are people such as Dr. Kemp or Thomas Marvel. Each character has a unique personality. All of the characters strongly influence the outcome of the story. One final element of the story that caught my attention was the theme. The story emphasizes that care should be taken so that valuable information should not be used for evil. I would definetely strongly recommend this book. The Invisible Man is a great sci-fi-mystery-thriller combination. It contains interestin characters and a surprising outcome. If you are a sci-fi nut like myself and seeking a mysterious thriller, you'll be sure to enjoy The Invisible Man.
