Roman c l bre entre tous b L homme invisible b est un v ritable chef d uvre de la litt rature fantastique b H G Wells b par son imagination et son humour y d ploie l immensit de son talent d crivain .

Cette histoire courte mais intense est la fois cynique dr le et inventive Inventive car elle met en sc ne le r ve secret de tous l invisibilit .

Cynique car Wells nous fait d couvrir tous les cons quences n fastes endur es par cet homme qui d couvre accidentellement le secret de l invisibilit et les effets catastrophiques de cette nouvelle facult sur son esprit Si em H G Wells em nous montre un homme nu d clarant tel Oscar Wilde i Je n ai rien d autre d clarer que mon g nie i il nous montre aussi la noire facette d un homme brutal m prisant et d mesur ment orgueilleux Son Homme Invisible est un Docteur Jekyll pitoyable pouvant tout moment se m tamorphoser en un Mr Hyde impr visible .

Enfin la plume de Wells regorge d humour dans sa description des habitants des villages qui tour tour cr dules stupides et angoiss s en deviennent d une simplicit attachante et comique .

Wells qui ici comme dans toute son uvre allie merveille roman d aventure et r flexion sur l Homme d montre le danger que repr sente la diff rence dans un groupe homog ne qui pris de peur va rejeter et ha r l tranger em H G Wells em rend fort bien ce ph nom ne que l on pourrait taxer de racisme par les suppositions mises c est un n gre c est une esp ce de m tis c est un faiseur d exp riences un criminel tentant d chapper la justice un maniaque inoffensif Tout est bon pour exciter la curiosit exacerber la rumeur et d cupler la violence de l homme traqu et d sesp r L angoisse qui monte crescendo maintient le suspense .

Ce roman reste l un des piliers de toute la SF moderne Une histoire simple qui se r v le une brillante r flexion sur l homme et le pouvoir et le danger de la toute puissance donn e un homme d nu de tout frein moral .

Son style inimitable donne em L Homme Invisible em le cachet des livres intemporels Le th me de l invisibilit sera ensuite bien s r tr s souvent repris mais rarement avec autant d esprit que chez em H G WELLS em by H.G. Wells
