Parasha: The Invisible Man - October 24th reading

Hm, sorry, been a bit sleepy-headed today, and didn't get around to this til late. :p

It's just... weird to imagine the Invisible Man prowling around this precursor to a department store or mall, and... pigging out on chocolates and sweets. Eesh.

Geez, violent little cuss when he's discovered, not that this comes as any surprise at all by this point...

Nice little aside... "oh, and incidentally I could, y'know, just rob the place of any money it had. Just as a side issue."

I am enjoying our little voyeur commenting on the costume shop owner's bad table manners, and how there was never such a man for shutting doors, and the like.

I'm not sure if I should be aghast at the guy just knocking the owner over the head with a freaking stool, or giggling over the small detail of gagging him with a Louis XIV vest... Or "if once he saw me he would be able to describe me"... under the circumstances.

Or not to mention "Robbing! Confound it! You'll call me a thief next!" Well, yes... yes... that's usually what that word means. Not to mention that's what you've already admitted you've BEEN DOING all along. Eesh.

I'd say that the whole "I had merely to fling aside my garments and vanish" sense of power thing went way too much to his head, but it sounds like Griffin was always a jerk, even before becoming invisible. I'm sure it didn't help matters, though!

He's also not too bright, confessing to a frigging doctor, old friend or not, that he didn't even care if he killed someone, and still might commit murder on Marvel. Yeah, way to go there, chief.

Ah hah, the three men coming up the hill. Yeah, expected that. And given the chapter title...

"Oh no, I haven't told anyone you're here!" Yeah, wonder if you had your fingers crossed behind your back...

Oh dear heavens, Griffin, are you really that stupid? Just laying out a plan to start killing indiscriminately and causing a Reign of Terror? Good grief!

And yeah, that whole capture thing went really well. Reaaally well. Glad I'm not Kemp, that's all I have to say!

And Friday, we finish up with Chapters 25 all through the Epilogue.
