I had to read this novel for school and to my surprise it was not bad at all. I usually dislike the novels the schools makes us read but for some reason in particular i enjoyed this one. This novel spoke about a huge crisis back in America, which is racism. This novel is finding yourself, and looking beyond your skin color and truly finding yourself and your own individuality come to live. The man character, the Invisible Man, goes through a whole lot with his fake and untrustworthy "brotherhood." And i feel like the Invisible Man has gone through so much throughout his entire life as a black man. If I were to spend a day with the main character I would find him really intriguing and powerful because after everything that he went through, through all the racial slurs and being kicked out off college and everything, he became a really strong and inspirational person inside.
I have recently started a group that plans to discuss this novel as well other prominent works of fiction:
Best English-Language Fiction of the Twentieth Century
A new group centered on a composite list of the best English-language fiction of the twentieth century. Please give it a look, join up and invite your friends!
