作者在科技兴盛之初,就站在其背后反思了可能对人类带来的灾难,见解深刻独到。

In the darkness of a February night, a stranger dressed in a wide-brimmed hat and very long coat got off a train at Bramblehurst. It was bitterly cold, but there were no carriages. The man had to carry his suitcase for several hours through a snow-storm to reach the small town of Iping. When he arrived, he went to the Coach and Horses Inn. The people in the inn saw a dark figure stumble in.

《轻松英语名作欣赏:隐形人》是H.G.韦尔斯创作的一部经典作品,讲述了一个充满奇幻色彩的故事。穷困的年轻科学家格里芬怀着巨大的狂热发明了一种药物,能够使物质隐形。他给自己用药后成了隐形人,无法继续在伦敦生活下去,只好躲到偏僻小镇进行实验,希望能找到显形的办法。屡遭失败后,他的灵魂也走火入魔,妄图利用自己隐形的特点对世界进行恐怖统治,最终阴谋败露,他在人们的围捕下魂归西天,隐形的身体也重新显现。

赫伯特·乔治·威尔斯是英国著名作家,20世纪初英国现实主义小说三杰之一。他在科幻小说方面亦取得重大成就,被誉为“科幻界的莎士比亚”。他长驱直入,开疆拓土,指出了后世科幻作家可以继续探索的所有道路。20世纪科幻小说中几大主流话题,如“时间旅行”、“外星人”、“反乌托邦”等等,都是由韦尔斯首创的。

Herbert George Wells(21 September 1866 – 13 August 1946), usually referred to as H. G. Wells, was an English writer. He was prolific in many genres, writing dozens of novels, short stories, and works of social commentary, satire, biography, and autobiography, including even a book on war games. He is now best remembered for his science fiction novels and is often called a "father of science fiction".

陌生人在房间里又工作了好几个星期。通常他都比较安静,但是偶尔他也会大发雷霆,砸家具,摔设备。他难得也会在傍晚去散步。他总是从头到脚都包裹得严严实实的,也不理会村里人友好的表示。霍尔先生提议让这个人搬走,可霍尔太太说:“他总是额外多付些钱呢。我们有这么多空房间,不能太挑剔了。”

陌生人成了村里人茶余饭后的谈资,很多人都相信特迪·亨弗雷说的,认为这个人是个逃犯。

For a number of weeks, the stranger worked in his room. He was usually quiet, but there was the occasional tantrum when he smashed furniture and his equipment. Rarely, he took walks in the early evening. He always kept himself covered and ignored the friendly gestures from the village people. Mr. Hall proposed that they get rid of the stranger but Mrs. Hall said, "He always pays his bills plus extra. We cannot be picky when we have so many empty rooms."

The stranger was a very common topic of conversation among the village people. Many believed Teddy Henfrey's story that the man was running from the law.
