An interesting man arrives in the small town of Ippling fully covered; only a pink nose shows through his scarf. Many people wonder where he comes from and what his business is there, but they soon find that they wish they never saw him...--Submitted by Larry Carson
This is a classic science-fiction book with over 100 pages of pure excitement and wonder. The Invisible Man may start out slowly, but once you pay close attention, the book becomes a spine-tingling thriller that will leave you breathless. It all starts when a mysterious stranger comes into the town of Iping, all wrapped up in bandages. He never takes off his glasses, bandages, or coat, and brings all sorts of strange chemicals in little bottles with him. He sits in his hotel room all day, working with the chemicals. No one knows what he's doing, but eventually, people get suspicious. Who is this disguised man? Is he a criminal in hiding? Or maybe he's horribly disfigured! All the same, they want to get a glimpse of this strange man's face. Just imagine their surprise when they find out that this man is invisible! I would definitely inspire anyone who likes a good hard read and science-fiction to read this fantastic novel.--Submitted by Elizabeth Hutson, 6th Grade, age 12
