Two of Wells's masterpieces get the red-carpet treatment here in these luxurious editions. Along with annotated texts, they feature scholarly introductions and appendixes, bibliographies, illustrations, and indexes. Though they are perhaps a tad pricey for most public libraries, academic collections supporting English departments should definitely invest in these volumes.

He then goes to New York, where no door opens for him, until he gets involved with a "progressive" group called "The Brotherhood". This is a multirracial group supposedly dedicated to fight against discrimination, but it may have another, secret, politcal agenda. Our man causes an immediate impact as speaker, agitator, and organizer, which brings in women, friends, and also enemies and envy.
The magic of this novel is that it never surrenders to the temptations of victimism and self-pity. On the contrary, it mantains a sense of humor and a fierce mordacity, depicting the character as a truly free man in every sense of the word, a rebel with a cause who never succumbs to corruption and group-thinking. And clearly the story told is not exclusive to racial problems. Envy, spitefulness, betrayal, abound in humanity.
Better than I had hoped, it seems to me to be a novel of universal reach and literary greatness.
The stranger arrived in February, wrapped from head to toe, with an unusual nose. A guest arriving in Iping and in the dead of winter was extremely unusual, but there he stood, asking for a room and a fire!
As the story progresses, more people become aware of this strange, private man, and this strange man becomes more and more desperate. You see, he has ended up becoming a scoundrel—after all, no one can see him. Then, he runs out of money and food and is freezing; when he eats, the food can be seen until it is absorbed and if he wears clothes, everyone can see the outline of his body. Naturally, he doesn't want to be apprehended. In fact, he has a plan to thoroughly rule and reign terror. He is positive that Fellow scientist Kemp will partner with him in this endeavor.
Will Kemp enable him, or not? That is the question....
Quite a story. Makes one think about what is our true character when no one can see us.
