The Invisible Man (1897) is one of the most gripping of H.G. Wells' science-fiction sagas. The Invisible Man is the story of a brilliant young scientist who hastily experiments upon himself, becoming invisible and mad. He is imprisoned in a nightmare of his own making. From its opening in a small village inn, the narrative moves inexorably towards a climax of terror as the whole of England unites to hunt down and destroy the invisible alien. Beautifully illustrated, this classic tale captures the imagination of readers of all ages and inspires a love of literature and reading.
