Audible Editor Reviews

H. G. Wells' 1897 novel, The Invisible Man, is a canonical work of science fiction, but more people know the story than have actually delved into it. Thomas E. Fuller's audio dramatization takes full advantage of the source material to create an irresistible yarn about science's ability to corrupt.

A mysterious stranger named Griffin arrives in the town of Iping. His face is covered in dark glasses and bandages. Griffin's plan to reverse the invisibility process that he invented goes awry when his secret is uncovered. Out of desperation, the mad scientist steals and kills.

Doug Kaye brings desperate intensity to his performance as Griffin in this Atlanta Radio Theatre Company adaptation, which features a haunting score from Alton Leonard.

Publisher's Summary

The small English town of Iping is just a waystation on the main road to Port Braddock. Nothing ever happens in Iping: Not in the dead of winter with the snow thick and crisp on the ground. Not with the wind howling and the ice crunching underfoot. Not until the Stranger came with his thick dark glasses and his head wrapped in bandages. Not until the Invisible Man arrived.

H. G. Wells' The Invisible Man is one of the true classics of science fiction, as frightening and fresh now as it was when it was first written. For there is terror in doors that open with no one behind them, in footsteps in empty halls, in a touch in an empty room. And for Griffin, the Invisible Man, there is terror in the discovery of what it is to be both powerful - and powerless.

This is a full-cast, soundscaped audio dramatization of the H. G. Wells classic.

    "Awful accents"

    This production has used an American cast attempting and failing dismally to speak in English accents . This may pass for US audiences but is cringeworthy to British ones . However , the storyline is acceptable .

    "A Great Original"

    Laugh Galore's at this oldie. Enjoy for what it is, old & fun like only we Brits know how. Pity about the novice voice overs who have a lot to learn about how to project the vowels of English. Instead, take in the storyline of the poor Invisible Man and you will smile.
