Comments for Memoirs of an Invisible Man

Memoirs of an Invisible ManMemoirs of an Invisible Man: 10/21/07

Memoirs of an Invisible Man is another in a long list of books I've read because I saw the movie. I saw the film at the Paseo Nuevo in Santa Barbara when I was a madly in love college student. I loved the film and Ian felt sort of "meh" about it but hey, it was still a date!

Although I didn't read Memoirs for Callista's ""Books to Movies Challenge"" it does qualify. Hopefully she'll let me add it to my list of reviews.

I have to say in this case I enjoyed the film more than the book. The film to fit into a standard length cuts out a lot of the mundane details of day to day living as an invisible man that add extra pages to the novel but don't do much in terms of moving the plot along.

It isn't until the last third of the book that the plot takes off and Nick hooks up with a girl friend but by then there isn't time for the story lines to resolve themselves to any sort of satisfaction. I have to wonder if Saint wasn't hoping for a series of these books but it's been twenty years and so far it is Saint's only novel.
