Invisible Man

by Ralph Ellison

Review

Invisible Man

When I think of people trying to write “The Great American Novel”, this is the book I think of. It covers so much ground and has so much depth that it truly stands out as a work of literature. With it’s allusions to other works and subsequent comparisons to work’s like Homer’s Odyssey, this is definitely a novel that manages to strike many chords that appeal to me and allows me to empathize with the narrator despite the lack of direct commonality of our experiences.

Rating: ★★★★★
