Description

The Invisible Man is a 1897 science fiction novel by H. G. Wells. It tells the story of Griffin; a scientist who has devoted himself to research into optics and invents a way to make himself invisible by making it so his body reflects no light. He is successful in carrying this out on himself but cannot reverse it. The Invisible Man was a big influence on sci-fi writers, but H. G. Wells also took inspiration to create the book. Bab Ballads by W.S. Gilbert includes the rhyme: 'Old Peter vanished like a shot - but then - his suit of clothes did not.' He was also influenced by Plato's Republic which, in the legend of the Ring of Gyges, says that if a man were made invisible and could act with impunity, he would 'go about among men with the powers of a god'.

This book has 153 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1897.
