Today, 12 year old Nikhitha Sristi from Bangalore reviews for us the classic book The Invisible Man and the movie based on it . Nikhitha is studying in class 7, Delhi Public School Whitefield, Bangalore.
Title- The Invisible Man
Author- H.G. Wells
Publisher- Finger Print Classics
One of the most famous science fictions, `The Invisible Man’ written by Herbert George Wells, published in 1897, is the story of a scientist who happens to pass through a dreadful incident.
This book tells how science sometimes can turn out to be a strong weapon against humanity. In this story, to destroy an individual’s personality. The story is about a scientist who invents a chemical that makes things invisible. He tests the chemical on himself only to realize that the change is irreversible. He keeps patience for some time and eventually takes advantage of the situation.
He becomes an evil personality and starts to devise crooked plans, which destroy his life. When his friend and police try to catch him, he dies during the the fight. After he died, he became visible again. Looking at his amazing invention, he was given a tribute as one of the greatest physicist in the world.
I like only interesting stuff, so on the recommendation of my parents, I got this book and found it incredible and fascinating. It helped me develop interest to read more. Each page I flipped, the story became more interesting and I, more
curious to know what would happen next. It is an intense story and keeps one glued to the book.
My most favorite part was when the guest house owners got to know that the stranger was invisible. Best thing is that this book is a science fiction, which I personally prefer, because they are usually interesting accounts about incidents.
A movie was released in 1933 with the title of “The Invisible Man”, it was based on this book. This movie was directed by James Whale, the movie casting includes Claude Rains, as the invisible man (Mr. Griffin); Una O’Connor, as Mrs. Halls and Forrester Harvey as Mr. Hall. The story in the movie was a bit different from that of the book. However, there was no change in the plot of the book, only few of the scenes were changed to make the film more engaging, especially scenes related to disappearance of the cat and Mr.
I felt watching the story of the book as a movie was an amazing experience. The man disappearing and seeing him in his costume was all awesome, but it is always best to read the book before watching it as a movie. It gives us better experience of the movie. Therefore, I personally prefer reading the book.
The written style and language of this book has highly improved my vocabulary and reading skills. Reading this book was undoubtedly an amazing experience. I highly recommend this book to readers who are really interested in science fiction, especially to readers who are around 11-15 years.
I give it a five on five! 5 star.
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
