She refuses to accept the excuse that he is waiting for a remittance. When he produces some money, she refuses it, saying she first wants to know why he doesnt enter by doorways and move about like normal people.

He thus looks like a person with a missing head. At the sound of screams a crowd of people run toward the inn.
Eye-witnesses suddenly babble hysterical stories of the man attacking the servant girl, and brandishing a knife. Bobby Jaffers, the village constable, appears with a warrant. The stranger slaps Jaffers with his glove, but then says he will surrender.
He will not accept handcuffs, however. As the constable, Halls and others watch, the man removes the rest of his clothes, becoming invisible before them. He tells them that he is invisible. Jaffers wants to take him in for questioning on suspicion of robbing.
A scuffle ensues, and the stranger, now known as the Invisible Man, escapes. This is the last chapter in which Mrs. Hall has a significant presence, but the reader is left with the image of a very courageous, and spunky lady.
She has, just a day before, been shoved out of one of her own rooms with a floating chair; she knows the man has entered and left by some mysterious means and yet she rejects his money and demands an explanation. Griffins own actions are quickly becoming offensive, violent and deliberately geared toward creating reactions of fear and terror in his victims. There seems to be no sense of humanity left in him; everything he does is first for survival, then for the sheer thrill of striking terror-simply because he can.
He is like an evil schoolboy who enjoys pulling the legs off of flies just to see them squirm. It never occurs to him to try to solve his problem by any means other than violence and terror. In Transit Summary. An amateur naturalist named Gibbins is relaxing out on the downs and hears someone coughing, sneezing and swearing. Frightened, Gibbins gets up and runs home.

CHAPTER 5. The Burglary and the Vicarage
He has come across a pair of boots in a ditch. He has tried them on and found them too big, and is occupied in contemplating the boots when he hears a voice nearby.
Marvel talks about boots with the voice for several minutes before turning to see his visitor and finding no one there. First Marvel tells himself that he has had too much to drink, then that his imagination has played some sort of trick on him. The Invisible Man begins throwing things at Marvel to convince him that he is not just imagining the presence.
Eventually the Man convinces Marvel that he is real and is in need of an accomplice who will first give him food, water and shelter.
He delivers an unfinished threat of what he will do if Marvel betrays him. Notes Marvel appears eccentric, unassuming and something of a loner, which would be bait to Griffin.
He has no family, and apparently little money as he is first found contemplating whether or not he wants to keep a set of cast-off boots. He is fat, red faced, slow moving and doesnt seem terribly bright, but that is merely the effect of Griffin having the advantage over him.
As soon as he realizes his predicament, he begins to look for any possible means of escape. As for Griffin, he is making use of Marvel in the same way that he did the Halls, the stray cat, and even his own father. Whatever means he deems necessary to his purpose is enacted without thought or conscience. Marvels Visit to Iping Summary Iping has nearly recovered its earlier holiday atmosphere. As only a few people had actually made contact with the Invisible Man, the general population is soon able to reason him away as some trick of an overactive, holiday imagination.
Around 4: Marvel enters town and is observed by Huxter to behave rather strangely. He makes his way down the street almost reluctantly. A few minutes later, he re-emerges, apparently having had a drink, and walks as if he is trying to act nonchalant.
Soon he disappears into the yard and re-emerges with a bundle wrapped in a tablecloth. Huxter thinks some robbery has taken place and tries to follow Marvel when he is tripped in a mysterious fashion and sent sprawling. Marvels resistance manages to get attention, but not the attention he wants.
Huxter thinks that Marvel has committed the robbery. Cuss and Mr. Bunting were in the parlor going through the belongings of the Invisible Man. Three large books labeled Diary are written in a cipher or code they do not understand. Suddenly the inn door opens and Mr. Marvel enters. They disregard him and begin studying the books again when an unseen force grabs each of them by the neck and begins pounding their heads on the table between questions about what they are.
The man demands his belongings, saying he wants his books and some clothes. Notes Griffin is on the verge of insanity. He is probably terrified on two counts. One would be lest someone tamper with his notes or other belongings related to his experiments.
The other would be lest someone should actually be able to decipher his records. Hall and Teddy Henfrey are involved in a discussion behind the hotel bar when they hear a thump on the parlor door. They hear strange sounds as of things being thrown against the door and some bizarre conversation. Doors open and shut and they see Marvel taking off with Huxter trying to follow him. Suddenly Huxter executes a complicated leap in the air.
Seconds later, Hall lands on the ground as if he had been attacked by a football player.
Chapter Wise Summary of The Invisible Man Written by H.G.Wells
Several other individuals are shoved aside or sent sprawling in the streets. Cuss calls for help, telling people that the Man has all of the vicars clothes.
Notes Marvel has taken advantage of the situation, and rather than carrying Griffins material for him, has run off with it. The intervention of Huxter and the other individuals almost enables Marvel to get away with the precious books. Cuss quickly catches on to the fact that Griffin will be visible so long as he is carrying the bundle, but he is unaware of the existence of Marvel. The narrator tells us that perhaps the Invisible Man only intended to use the vicars clothes to cover his retreat, but that at some chance blow he has gone completely over the edge.
He throws or upends benches, chairs and boards, along with breaking windows. Eventually he catches up with Marvel and they head for the next town.
Marvel discusses His Resignation. Summary Mr. Marvel, propelled by the unrelenting shoulder grip and vocal threats of the Invisible Man, arrives in Bramblehurst.
Marvel tries to reason his way out of the situation to no avail. The Invisible man needs a normal person to carry his books and is determined to make use of the fat, red-faced little man.
Notes This brief chapter serves to track Griffins movement to the next location and to show his crude behavior toward Marvel. Marvel tries reasoning, whining, and even suggesting that he may in the long run be a failure and thus mess up Griffins plans. Nothing works. For the moment, Griffin needs Marvel.
If Marvel should drop in accordance with his professed heart condition, it would mean nothing to Griffin. At Port Stowe. Summary Marvel arrives in Port Stowe and is seen resting on a bench outside of town.
He has the books with him, but the bundle of clothing has been abandoned in the woods. As he sits there, an elderly mariner, carrying a newspaper, sits down beside him. Citing the paper, the mariner brings up the topic of an Invisible man. According to the newspaper, the man afflicted injuries on the constable at Iping. Certain evidence indicates that he took the road to Port Stowe.
THE INVISIBLE MAN SUMMARY.docx
The mariner ponders the strange things such a man might be able to do-trespass, rob or even slip through a cordon of policeman. Marvel begins to confide in the mariner, saying he knows some things about this Invisible Man. Suddenly Marvel is interrupted by an attack of some kind of pain.
He says it is a toothache, then goes on to say that the Invisible Man is a hoax. Marvel begins to move off, walking sideways with violent forward jerks.
Later the mariner hears another fantastic story-that of money floating along a wall in butterfly fashion. The story is true, however. All about the neighborhood, money. Notes Marvel tries to take advantage of a short respite to let someone else know about the Invisible Man, but he is caught by Griffin before he can complete his story.
This chapter gives us a little insight as to how Griffin has been surviving to this point. He has been stealing money wherever he could find it. Now that he is obliged to remain invisible, however, he has to use Marvel as a repository for his ill-gotten gain. The irony is that although Griffin can steal unlimited amounts, he has no way to use the money in his invisible condition.
And Marvel, who is for a time nothing more than a helpless victim, will be the one to benefit in the end. Kemp happens to be day-dreaming out his window when he spots a short, fat man running down the hill as fast as he can go. The doctor notices that the man is running heavy as if his pockets are full of lead. Kemps reaction is one of contempt, but the people on the street who see him approaching react a bit differently. The running man is Marvel; his expression is one of terror.
A short distance behind him, people hear the sound of panting and a pad like hurrying bare feet. Soon cries of The Invisible Man is coming are heard in the streets along with the slamming of doors as people bolt into their houses. Notes This chapter simply introduces Kemp into the story. Kemps attitude is representative of the average established, self-confident, and self-sufficient individual. He sees a man in trouble, but his reaction in contemptuous instead of concern.
He has heard warning cries about an Invisible Man, but clearly doesnt believe any of it. He is a man who keeps himself apart form the concerns of the general public, is buried in his work, interested only in what award it will ultimately bring him.
