The Invisible Man (1897) is one of the most famous science fiction novels of all time. Written by H.G. Wells (1866-1946)- it tells the story of a scientist who discovers the secret of invisibility and uses it on himself. The story begins as the Invisible Man- 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!

Fabulous narration of one of the most brilliant stories ever penned by H.G.Wells. Mr Foster is an excellent reader. The pace is just right, and his emotive performance of the tale is, in my opinion, perfect. The slight buzzing sound which is barely audible in some places didn't annoy me, nor did I find it a distraction. I do hope Mr Foster will be narrating even more stories on Libravox, as the quality of his work is superb. Now, if he would only consent to undertake a solo narration of 20,000 leagues under the sea.......;)See full review

A brilliant display and reading,voices authentic,of how different classes in England really would do in a situation like this.In that era. I think it could be a demonstration of many things to compare. Good for a youngster or an adult.
