The Invisible Man is a science fiction with a deep message that has universal effect. The message is loud and clear that the scientific discovery should be done in the social and ethical limitations because the failure in doing so may bring adverse results. Science has immense scope but sometimes the products or the experiments, if not made well, may bring disaster like Atom bomb and nuclear weapons. In this novel too it has brought the disaster as the scientist becomes invisible. The society never weeps for the person who harms it. Griffin is also taken as such a person and thus society eventually made him pay his due. It is the society itself that made him a horror because he was not rightly understood by the society. Every writer wants to preach the society by his/her works, and thus H. G Wells is not an exception.
