Description

A mysterious stranger in a long-sleeved coat, with a bandaged face and wide-brimmed hat, arrives in a small English village. But his incongruous appearance is nothing compared to the secret of the clandestine experiments he is undertaking...With his face swaddled in bandages, his eyes hidden behind dark glasses and his hands covered even indoors, Griffin - the new guest at The Coach and Horses - is at first assumed to be a shy accident-victim. But the true reason for his disguise is far more chilling: he has developed a process that has made him invisible, and is locked in a struggle to discover the antidote. Forced from the village and driven to murder, he seeks the aid of his old friend Kemp. The horror of his fate has affected his mind, however - and when Kemp refuses to help, Griffin resolves to wreak his revenge.

Great performance, classic story

First, the narrator was excellent, really a voice actor with a wide range of voice characters and accent. Really enhanced the story. I really wasn't familiar with the story and how dark it is. It is a great narrative of dark side of human nature and how brilliant narcissism and the anonymity of invisibility can bring out the worst. Starts off slow but is engaging as the story moves along. Definitely worth the "read".

Warmed-over Frankenstein

Surprisingly lackluster story given the reputation of its eponymous character. I was confused how parochial the whole thing was, how gratuitous and cliched its short jaunt to London, how unconvincing and inconsistent Griffen's motivation. I suppose there are interesting things here about monstrous whiteness rather than invisibility. Just not inspired by the story to pursue it.
