    Invisible Man is an extremely well written and intelligent novel full of passion, fire and energy it s such a force to be reckoned with in the literary world, and not one to be taken lightlyI am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by mirrors of hard, distorting glass When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves or figments of their imagination, Invisible Man is an extremely well written and intelligent novel full of passion, fire and energy it s such a force to be reckoned with in the literary world, and not one to be taken lightlyI am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by mirrors of hard, distorting glass When they approa...
