    This book is arguably a classic work of English sci-fi genre. Its about an invisible man who goes to a village in England and wrecks havoc. No doubt, H.G.Wells is one of the pioneers of sci-fi; but I found this work of his a bit inferior to Time Machine(another of his sci-fi).Almost three-fourths of the unabridged book is wasted. The main characters are revealed after that.

The story shouldn't have ended like this. This is can be a good start for one reading sci-fi,but its not the perfect sci-fi novel.

    I was asked about this book by a bus driver who thinks I am missing out since I told him I am not a Classics fan at all. As I replied I mentioned I enjoyed the whole series altogether since the abridgers do a wonderful job in removing vast amounts of what can be drab reading when you are trying to get through a particularly heavy book and also due to the fact that they make the reading easy enough that a fellow co-worker whose English skills are limited was crying with joy that he could read th I was asked about this book by a bus driver who thinks I am missing out since I told him I am not a Classics fan at all.

And so I am a true fan of the Illustrated Classics and the easiness they bring to readers whether fans of the Classics or not. With this particular story I had read it before but in another version that was similar to the series although more geared towards high school audiences and above. I don't remember much, though, as the story really didn't capture my mind and was just a bland read in my opinion. With this retelling although I am still not a fan it was a lot more enjoyable to be re-reading it again. For those who have read Jekyll and Mr. Hyde the story is a bit of a repeat along with about the same moral. Being from H.G. Wells it is no surprise that we find the scientific route being followed although that particular element has been left alone for the most part from the story. All in all it was a pretty decent read that is full of action and the challenges of man when faced with the results of his mad experiments as well as all that comes with playing for God. And for someone who may be interested this is a good start-off point to reading the actual novel itself for with the illustrations it breaks up the story while also giving the reader a bit more of a chance to absorb the writing as they study the pictures.

    We have had this book in my home for over ten years, and I had yet to read it, so I finally picked it up as a quick read. I’m glad I did. I haven’t read many classics, but I knew it was time to change that. It definitely took a turn that I was not expecting. The story was certainly...interesting, to say the least. Not a bad book in the slightest, but something I will likely never read again.

    I don't know if I was expecting a lot from this book, or if it was just really that average. Though written well enough, the storyline was a complete bore. So not what I wanted from my first Wells novel.

    It was time to read this story that I have heard so much about through the years. It's interesting, quick to read and a good, good concept. Think I even saw the movie. Yes, this is an abridged version but quite good enough for me. I liked it and am glad I took time to read it at last.

    I felt really bad for the invisible man and I thought it was really cool when he went around and people didn't even know what was happening. He was kind of cruel and was a angry man, but I feel sorry for him.

    Simply written, quite violent and suspenseful. Showcases a person transformed by greed and power and the madness created by it.

    I chose this book because I had heard of it before and was interested. Also, I remember previously reading part of it and I wanted to go back and read the entire thing.

Also, I remember previously reading part of it and I wanted to go back and read the entire thing. One of my friends also recommended it to me. This book also fits into the most common genre that I read sci-fi or adventure books. At the beginning of the book, a strange man covered entirely in bandages arrives and stays at The Horses and Carriage Inn. He comes in very rushed and cold and demands that all of his bags be picked up from the train station as soon as possible. These bags contained his science experiments and equipment. He was a very strange man that kept to himself and had anger management issues. When the maid brought him his dinner she found there to be clothes but no head on the man. The man yelled at her and she ran out screaming. The man stayed there for several months and was able to pay his rent for most of the time and paid it in extra. A little later on the man had no money left but said he was going to get it soon. That same day that he said that, a robber broke into the house of the minister of port burdock and stole a very large amount of money. When the maid brought up breakfast to the man, she found he was not there, but checked back shortly after and found him there with the rent. People got suspicious and called the cops on the man and tried to arrest him, but he escaped by taking off all of his clothes. Now everyone knew that the man was invisible and was very hard for them to catch him. He ran and hid with Dr.Kemp later in the book. Kemp after talking to him for a while, realized he was crazy and sent a note with his maid to the police. The police came and the invisible man fought off the policeman and proceeded to chase Kemp. He ran into the town square warning people that the Invisible man was coming. People ran into their homes and some men with shovels came to help. The Invisible Man was able to catch up to kemp and tackled him and choked him. A man with a shovel struck him on the head and killed him. The Invisible man slowly turned visible again and everything went back to normal. What worked with this book was the way they introduced the Invisible man and made him mysterious. When he first entered the book they made him very strange and kept to himself. This set up the mystery around him and why he was there and why he had bandages covering his face.

    Oh my god. This is the best book I have possibly ever read, and this is abridged. Wow. This is another "Great Illustrated Classics" book (i will be doing other reviews soon enough!) that is true to the series name. The book follows an alchemist (or scientist i'm not sure) who accidentally turned himself invisible while performing experiments. Some parts reminded me of Dorian Gray with the idea of turning evil from this horrible mistake born out of curiosity. Any one who sees this book must get a Oh my god.

I constantly read and reread this book and I am currently looking for an unabridged version.(If anybody knows where i can get one let me know in the comments). I won't spoil anything in here because this is too good of a book to spoil. Until next time, read more books!

    “The Invisible Man” by H.G. Wells adapted by Malvina G. Vogel. I personally enjoyed the book for it being somewhat similar to Frankenstein and other books but it had a different tone to it than the other ones as they all are but this one is more telling of the main character's journey. And my favorite character is the invisible man because of his interesting backstory and encounters with others.

My favorite quote is “He’s not only invisible, but after reading these accounts, I’m convinced that he’s mad as well! Mad enough to be capable of murder!” this is saying he is too far lost to be safe nor close to that. I also found it interesting that they had it in the third person I thought it may have been in the first person. In the end it was good i liked it for it’s interesting story arch.

    The 'Ending' of this book made me cry - a lot! It was a fantastic book because I think I lived the Invisible Man's life. I felt his pain of being broken, wounded and betrayed several times. When I came to the end of this book, I just muttered to myself, the 'Invisible Man' or Griffin just needed some love! :(

    Accidentally got this from the library because they didn't specify which version they were putting on hold. I believe this is my first HG Wells story and I have to say it was incredibly disappointing and boring. I read it in one go and based on the depth of the characters have no interest in seeking out the actual version. Hopefully the movie will do this man some justice...

    I read this when I was a child, and enjoyed it very much! (view spoiler)[I thought it was really sad how he died in the end; and maybe it was one of those early things that made me realize people are afraid of that which is different, or foreign.

    All I have to say is if H.G. Wells was alive today, there is no way he would be published. The writing was amateur at best, but his ideas were revolutionary. It's good to read the classics and understand where the genre came from, but this isn't writing at its finest.

    I read this book for the story, but I ended up not enjoying it. The main character seemed really self-absorbant and rude, so I didn't give him any sympathy, and ended up wanting him to get really bad karma. I wish he would have used his new power in a cooler way.

    I didn't realize this was a child's version when I picked it up at a fair, but I'm still glad I read it. It told the main part of the story, and now I want to read the fuller version, because I'm guessing it is much richer.
