H.G. Wells & ‘The Invisible Man’

We are currently living in a world where fighting an ‘invisible enemy’ is something we are all having to get used to. So … it’s a particularly apt time to read The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells.

I am not a big sci-fi reader – science fiction is generally a section of a bookstore or library that fails to tempt me. I also prefer novels to have a hero and heroine and preferably a love story – The Invisible Man has none of those things. And yet it’s a fabulous book with a gripping plot and relevant and complex issues that are as topical today as when Wells wrote it.

Wells is often referred to as ‘the Father of Science Fiction’. Learn about this forward-thinking man and join me in delving into one of his best novels and thinking about just what invisibility really means.
