Unforgettable. ( )

El protagonista nos cuenta cómo ha llegado a ser "invisible", es decir, a ser ignorado por sus semejantes (no se refiere a que no se le vea físicamente, lo deja bien claro desde el principio). Desde el sur racista en el que nació, nuestro hombre pasará por una "universidad para negros" de la que es expulsado injustamente y por una brutal experiencia de electroshock, hasta ser reclutado por una "hermandad" política. Llega a ser un líder considerable por sus cualidades oratorias, perosu situación dentro del partido se hace bastante delicada. Nuestro hombre tiene que ir renunciando a todo lo que él es, hasta a su nombre (que nunca aparece en el libro), para complacer a los demás, pero solo consigue éxitos relativos y temporales. Finalmente, los disturbios de Harlem de 1943 le llevarán, de forma un tanto rocambolesca, a vivir en un sótano olvidado de todos, incluso de la compañía eléctrica.

La historia es interesante e ilustrativa. Me han gustado muchas reflexiones sobre el racismo, sobre las luchas raciales y de clases (mezcladas o por separado), sobre el equilibrio entre nuestra propia personalidad y lo que los demás esperan de nosotros en cada momento, sobre el funcionamiento interno de los partidos políticos y sobre algunas cosas más. algunas escenas se quedan en mi memoria, como la sesión de lucha-humillación de negros para hombres diversión de hombres blancos a la que tiene que asistir, seguida de un discurso sobre el buen rollo interracial, o las reuniones del "comité" de su "hermandad" neoyorquina, muy reveladoras de las tripas de un partido político. Pero precisamente la abundancia de largas reflexiones es lo que me ha aburrido un poco. Y es que el autor trata de que estas parrafadas se parezcan al pensamiento del protagonista, y las presenta al lector de forma bastante errática. Muchas veces he tenido la tentación de saltármelas, aunque no he llegado a hacerlo, creo. Pero sí he deseado que fuesen más cortas o más claras. ( )

This was one of those books I'm pretty glad I was reading for a class because it was really amazing to be able to discuss this book with other people and dig into all the themes and subtext. This book does a beautiful job using all the literary device we all learned about in school. I can absolutely see why this would be a classic because there were so many ideas in this book that are still extremely relevant today. Many of the ideas about race could have been taken from current day discussions in movements like black lives matter. The way the author uses repetition in this book is incredible. The book gives hints about how time should be viewed and allows you to see connections between scenes in such an interesting way. I think this book could be very much enjoyed just through reading it but I would highly recommend reading this book with someone you can discuss this book with because there are so many layers and metaphors and themes that can become so much more evident with just a little bit of analysis and discussion. Very happy to have read such a classic. ( )

No place here for a plot summary or analysis of the beautifully imbricated layers of metaphor. This book is a stone cold classic. Political, artistic, improvisational, wise. A book for the world that still lives. One of my favorites. ( )

rubbish. intolerably long. protagonist that lacked a shred of cleverness—naive to an absurd degree. long-winded writing with some good passages. but the length! oh, the length! barf.

"Invisible Man" is tough, brutal and sensational. It is uneven in quality. But it blazes with authentic talent.

"You are saved," cried Captain Delano, more and more astonished and pained; "you are saved: what has cast such a shadow upon you?"

--Herman Melville, Benito Cereno
HARRY: I tell you, it is not me you are looking at,

Not me you arre grinning at, not me your confidential looks

Incriminate, but that other person, if person,

You thought I was: let your necrophily

"I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allan Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids—and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me. Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by mirrors of hard, distorting glass. When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination—indeed, everything and anything except me."
