"The Invisible Man" is the most famous novel by the famous English writer Herbert Wells. It describes the fate of the scientist-physicist Griffin, who invented a machine that makes a person invisible. But for all the sensationalism of the discovery it concealed in itself a lot of pretty uncomfortable situations. In such situations the main hero of the novel always finds himself. The tragic story of a talented scientist who imagines himself a "superman" is distinguished by a tense, almost detective storyline and strikes a combination of psychological and everyday authenticity with the fantasy of the events taking place.
