“The Invisible Man” is a science fiction novella by the English writer H.G. Wells. The story was first published in serial format in a magazine called “Pearson’s Weekly” in 1897. The novella was published on its own later that year due to the public interest.
The novella is told in the third person and revolves around a scientist named Griffin who discovers a formula that is capable of making a person invisible indefinitely. In this tale of psychological terror, the young scientist must live in the personal hell created by his own experiments. Using himself as the subject, the scientist is unable to reverse the results. Wells had created a gripping masterpiece on the destructive effects the invisibility has on the scientist and the insane and murderous chaos left in his malicious wake.
