Goal to read as many classics as possible

This story is a good old classic. However, I struggled to finish without upping the speed. Wells definitely put in a lot of effort to include as much description as possible so the plot of the story drags on. I found myself thinking "get to the point" but that's just me. The characters at first are annoying and nosey, and I understand why Griffin is so frustrated with them in the first place. But as the story progresses you see the true extent of his madness come out.

Invisible Man

The story was fair, a bit boring from my perspective. It wasn’t slow but I did find my mind wondering in places. The narration was excellent, he did a great job on the different characters. I just didn’t get into the story that much. It was just fair.

Great Classic

I have seen movies and have read varying renditions of the book. Always entertaining. I'm not completely sold on audible format,yet.
