it was ok

This novel is written in the 19th century so if you’re a bit thrown off by the language of the time I suggest you getting the version that has notes at the end of the book, like mine. Which was a Penguin classic that I borrowed from the L.A. County Public Library (<3!).
This is considered one of the 4 classics by H.G. Wells including War of the Worlds, Island of Dr. Moreau and The Time Machine. (Reviews later!). The plot of this novel is fairly obvious. It tells of a tale of a man who have managed to turn himself invisible. However, in his search for invisibility and then subsequently a cure has turned this man into a selfish monster. His desire to gain fame through his scientific research caused him become destructive and uncaring.
If you are a science fiction fan then this novel is a must read. H.G. Wells along with Jules Verne are considered the “fathers of science fiction” and it is essential to familiarize yourself with the originals.
