Beschreibung von Audible

When a bandage-swathed stranger books a room in an English village inn, no one realizes this is the beginning of a reign of terror. It's not long before they do! For the Invisible Man is dwelling under that roof, and he is one angry, irascible, and frustrated scientist with little patience for humanity. It may be he was antisocial to begin with, but his invisibility, and the danger and delight it brings him, push him to the brink of madness. Masterfully portrayed by Scott Brick - each of his characterizations is an actorly tour de force - the title character fascinates and mesmerizes, until it's gone.

Inhaltsangabe

Once a brilliant scientist, Griffin has been gradually consumed by his research. When he finally achieves his goal, the final result is his departure from humanity. He feels no remorse in using his invisibility to gratify his increasing desires. As he gradually loses his mind, it is hard to determine if it is a result of his chemical concoction, or just a continuation of his moral decline.

At a time when science fiction was depicting what wonders the future would bring, H.G. Wells was one of the first writers to explore the dark side of science and portray how easily mortal man could be corrupted when tempted by seemingly unlimited power.
