I read this book years ago, but completely forgot the plot. So done re-reading in an #audiobook. Picked this book as it has less characters and short story. Otherwise I will lose my track😛, as I am not very good at listening. I wonder about the idea of invisible man, that too centuries ago! But I dint like the main character 🤨 I wish the invisible man could have been a super hero.

EmilyM Sorry....hit send too fast! I am teaching this to my sophomores right now! It's good--I didn't know there was a movie...how is it? 3mo
TheReadingMermaid @EmilyM actually they made The Invisible Man with Claude Rains and then they made 4 sequels. This is one of the sequels. the first one is very well done. And for the time. The special effects are absolutely incredible! This one has Vincent Price in it and is also very good. The other three are just okay. But that is my opinion. 😊 3mo
EmilyM Thanks! Four sequels, huh?! Wow! I am enjoying teaching the book. This is the first year my department is teaching it. The kids have gotten into it, too. 3mo
TheReadingMermaid @EmilyM oh yes then definitely look into the Claude Rains film. It was made in 1933 so I doubt you would be unable to let them watch it in school. 3mo

Watching this one now...

1933 starring Claude Rains and Gloria Stuart

Fun fact, this movie was directed by James Whale, the same man who directed both Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein. If you don't catch the similarities in the direction, you can catch the similarities in the cast. 😉

Just finished reading this one for an audio book, and I had quite forgotten how altogether funny it was. The subtitle of this book is "A Grotesque Romance", and I did not recall any romantic involvements. I presume the author used the word as drama, story, etc. Still it reads as well today as when it was first written. A load of fun. My reading should be available for public consumption in about two weeks.

Well... at least it was short, and the narration was good.

There were a couple of goosebump-inducing moments, and I enjoyed the creepy atmosphere, but I wasn‘t overly impressed with the story and didn‘t like any of the characters.

Spoiler alert: the invisible man is a total jerk. 😂

“‘Why!‘ said Huxter, suddenly, ‘that's not a man at all. It's just empty clothes. Look! You can see down his collar and the linings of his clothes. I could put my arm -‘

He extended his hand; it seemed to meet something in mid-air, and he drew it back with a sharp exclamation. ‘I wish you'd keep your fingers out of my eye,‘ said the aerial voice.”

Very close between a pick and a so-so. I didn‘t love this one as much as some of H.G. Wells other books. I read half of this and listened to the rest so maybe that has something to do with it.

“Before I made this mad experiment I had dreamt of a thousand advantages. That afternoon it seemed all disappointment. I went over the heads of the things a man reckons desirable. No doubt invisibility made it possible to get them, but it made it impossible to enjoy them when they are got.” @SerialReader

Finished another ebook! I haven't read many ebooks this month so far, but I'm going on an holiday soon, so will have time to read some ebooks 📚
It wasn't what I expected, but I did enjoy reading it. It felt like a short mystery/ thriller/science fiction. A genre which I normally don't read so much. Still I liked it!

Too distracted to enjoy by the fact that never, not once, did anyone ever think of just throwing flour or powder of any sort or sand or dirt on the invisible man. Voila! Not invisible anymore until he baths and dries. This is not a hard solution people "oh noes how shall we ever find him". Rolls eyes throw flour where you think he is. Aargh!!!

I am teaching this to my sophomores this year and have just read it. I can't say that I was that impressed with it. The main character was so unlikable, it was entirely plot driven and there was very little back story given for the main character so I didn't feel anything for him. The second half was better than the first. It will be interesting to see how my students feel about it. 🌟🌟🌟/5. #teachersoflitsy

The Invisible Man, at least, the idea of an invisible person, is a fixture of 20th century SF/horror. The book, however, can be skipped. Read a brief summary and spend your time elsewhere.

Billypar I saw the film version with Claude Rains when I was a kid and remember loving it. But his performance was a big part of it rather than the story itself. 2y

I bought this in a used book shop because I love horror. The book is beat to shit but I love that, it feels more charming & fitting for the genre. The book moved slow (for me) for the first 2/3 or so and then it gets CRAY (are the kids still saying that?). Like we're talking invisible psycho naked man terrorizing English countryside type of crazy. Overall I'm glad I read it because of the "classic horror" genre, but I probably won't read it again.

Subtle scifi with candid critique, written accessibly! Characters unwittingly build the story through ample self and external reflections in the unfolding discovery of humanity. Finding it difficult to cheer on the strange scientist, readers join the villagers' sometimes ethically questionable efforts to uncover the invisible man's lurid mysteries. Intellectually chilling, a recommend for fans of sci-fi, social commentary, or forewarning novels 👍

A conversation with my son.
Son: Mom, what would you do if you could be invisible for 24 hours?
Me: I don't know.
Son: Would you read a visible book of The Invisible Man, freaking people out as the pages magically (insert air quotes) turned by themselves?
Me: (laughing) Maybe.
Son: Would you beat up a mime so he would look like the best mime ever and make lots of money?
Me: How 'bout we just give the mime the book?
Son: You suck at this.
