Classics Retold

September is the month of Classics Retold, courtesy of Bookish Whimsy, among others. I decided to go with The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells, one of my favorite authors. I’ll start with the book review tomorrow, then post reviews of assorted other things – mostly movies – based on this story.

I thought about making this a weekly thing, but instead I think I’ll just post things as I get to them, which will end up being distributed more or less evenly through the month, depending on how quickly Netflix delivers.

Note: many of these posts will contain spoilers, but I think most people know the general story of The Invisible Man – that is, there’s this dude who figures out how to make himself invisible and this ability makes him powerful, dangerous, and ultimately tragic. It’s a very short novel and is available online and via email for free, so you really ought to go read it.

  1. I know what you mean about posting when you get to things – I might be doing that since I still haven’t gotten my hands on the films and all the books. But at the moment I’m trying to do something at least once or twice a week.

    I really enjoyed The Invisible Man (from what I remember reading it a long time ago) so I look forward to your review tomorrow!

  2. Ooh, very cool. Looking forward to this.
