The Invisible Man is a science fiction novel written by H. G. Wells and published in 1897.

The book tells us the story of Griffin, a scientist who conducts experiments with the refraction of light. He is theorizing to exactly match a person's refractive index of light to that of air, so that the body neither absorbs nor reflects light. This would make the person invisible.

He decides to perform an experiment on himself to test his theory and it works, but with a major unexpected setback: he can't be visible again.

The plot is set in Iping, England, and a mysterious man arrives at a local hostel. The man is dressed very strange: a long coat down to his feet, gloves and his face covered with bandages, as well as a hat and sunglasses. The stranger instills curiosity and fear in the local population, and makes the inhabitants nervous.

Obviously this mystery man is Griffin, who is trying to make himself visible again. Mysterious robberies begin to happen in the town and people begin to suspect the stranger in the long coat. Griffin flees the town and little by little his mental state becomes more unstable...

The digital edition of this book is based on the original publcation by Harper and Brothers Publishers, New York and London
