The Invisible Man is one of the most famous science fiction novels of all time. It tells the story of a scientist who discovers the secret of invisibility and uses it on himself.
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 neither absorbs nor reflects light and thus becomes invisible.
The story begins as Griffin, with a bandaged face and a heavy coat and gloves, takes a train to lodge in a country inn whilst he tries to discover the antidote and make himself visible again.
The book inspired several films and is notable for its vivid descriptions of the invisible man--no mean feat, given that you can't see him!
