“The Invisible Man”

H. G. Wells

The first part of the book — the invisible man’s stay at a small town inn — is mostly played for laughs. The second, in which we learn the invisible man’s back story, is much more grim. I wouldn’t put this among Wells’ best works (perhaps the impact is spoiled by having seen the surprisingly good 1933 movie version), but it was fun to read Wells’ exploration of the pitfalls of invisibility.
