Against all odds, the unremarkable little man with a chip on his shoulder discovers the formula to make himself disappear. But instead of attaining the magnificent potential he first imagined, the Invisible Man finds himself in need of a private safe-house—and that means confiding in a boringly normal human being. For such an irascible (and now freakish) individual, this is easier said than done. Petty crime escalates to violence, and the cops begin to take notice of the Invisible Man.
"The minds of all of us, and therefore the physical world, would be perceptibly different if H.G. Wells had never existed." ~ George Orwell
