The Invisible Man (H. G. Wells)

Extremely uneven — maybe it's a side effect of time, or maybe it's an experiment by Wells, but the first half of this book is a slapstick comedy, and the latter half is an SF thriller. If you would skip to the middle of the book, where the invisible man begins to tell his own backstory, and the SF thriller begins, that would be the best way to read the book. The whole first part is crap and pointless.
