Paperback Castles

I live on a page in a book. My name is written in a curly and swirly font, along with long descriptions of sleepless nights and filled bookcases.

The Invisible Man - H.G. Wells This book was far more gothic in its tone than I had expected. Actually it is a bit of a haunting horror story as well as it is a science fiction novel. And I quite liked that. I love when authors surprise you and combine multiple genres in their own unique way.

Even though this book above all has a fast-paced and action-packed storyline, it is also very interesting to regard it as a character study. The main character, Griffin, really challenges the reader, shifting between feelings of kind sympathy for his failed destiny and disgust for his evil plans. I ended up despising him, even though I had started reading the novel with great hopes for him. That way this book is a bit of a roller-coaster.
