Overview

Differentiated book• It has a historical context with research of the time-Regarding the content of this novel by H.G. Wells, one could basically say that the invisible Man begins with the arrival of a strange stranger to the decayed Iping, people of England who will not be the same since then. In this way, attracting everyone's attention, and creating intrigue in its path, Griffin arrives dressed in gloves, a wide lapel raincoat, a mask, a hat and glasses, and stays at The Coach and Horse inn, where he locks himself in his room, having almost no contact with the outside world, dedicating himself to work with his experiments. While the entire town speculates on the origin and identity of the strange visitor, its inhabitants begin to be subject to strange robberies, however, no one has been able to see the perpetrator. Believing that the strange stranger has something to do with the sudden losses, the pension owners decide to face him, and ask him directly.Consequently, they enter Griffin's room, but cannot find it. However, they run into a strange scene: all man's clothes are lying on the floor. Suddenly, a chair seems to come alive, and stands against them, filling them with panic, and causing them to flee the room: it has been Griffin, who through an experiment with the refractive index of light has managed to become invisible. However, the inability to return to his usual state, has made him flee, and lock himself to discover how to achieve it.

A classic that hasn’t aged very well. I chose this book due to the fact that I had read it while I was younger. Remembering my love of this novel I decided to read it again for an assignment. Upon opening the book, readers are whisked into the middle of a bar where a mysterious and rude stranger takes up residence in the Inn. Submitting to their curiosity the owners of the Inn soon discover that the mysterious bandaged stranger that refused to show his face was in fact an invisible man. In fear they accuse him of a robbery sending authorities to arrest him setting off a book long chase. After his violent escape he befriends a beggar who then betrays him. This ultimately lays the foundations for the end of the invisible man for soon his conscience is clouded with anger and greedy ambition . Thus leading to some less than intelligent choices. For someone who had high expectations I was disappointed however the book is not a terrible read. I do however feel that the classic lives up to its name even though it may have lost the wow factor that it once held. I would only recommend this to those who are lovers of classics however if you are one for science fiction or a novel that will keep you entertained for a while this book may disappoint you.

Fulled with small nuts and seeds. A stream also runs on the side filled with fish. The seeds and nuts draw about lots of prey.
