Although Wells provided another original premise to his body of work, this short novel is one where the writing now feels slightly dated. Griffin is a social outcast whose invisiblity permits his moral barometer to shade into homicidal delusion. There are passages which truly investigate the ethical and moral challenges this young scientist faces, but these are limited to the second half of the novel. The first half deals with the paranoia which engulfs a small Sussex village with the arrival of this strangely attired newcomer, and some elements now read like silent movie slapstick.
