The Invisible Man of the title is Griffin, a scientist who has devoted himself to research into optics and invents a way to change a body’s refractive index to that of air so that it absorbs and reflects no light and thus becomes invisible. He successfully carries out this procedure on himself, but fails in his attempt to reverse the procedure. Instead, his plight becomes known. When he attempts to enlist the aid of a former acquintance, he is betrayed. Griffin then decides to murder his betrayer, Marvel. He chases him to the seaside town of Port Burdock. But Marvel escapes to a local inn and is saved by the people at the inn, but Griffin escapes. It is really interesting reading in the end, what happens to his betrayers, what happens to his plan of “Reign of Terror” and what happens to Griffin himself, whether he remains invisible forever or becomes visible again.
