That same morning hours following the robbery, the inn keepers notice Griffin's door is open up and they enter in the area.

There are several topics that may be produced from the book. However, the most relevant appears to be the theme of intolerance. Clearly, being unseen made Griffin not the same as everyone assumed the most detrimental of him and reject him as somebody who needs help. Instead of trying to understand the problem and attempt to help Griffin, the townspeople simply made the problem worse. Eventually Griffin can no longer withstand the rejection, which in turn causes his already delicate mental state to breakdown, leaving him feeling a whole lot hate for everyone, to the main point where he arises along with his Reign of Terror idea.
Another theme is rational, logical thinking. Many character types, whether it be the townspeople or Griffin, display a lack of reasonable way of thinking. As previously mentioned, the townspeople don't give much considered to what they will do to Griffin; they simply want him absent and out of these head of hair. Griffin also doesn't seem to help make the smart choice when it comes to how he handles his invisibility. Instead of taking credit for creating a material that converts him invisible, he tries to cover up and undo it. Possessed he managed to get an optimistic thing instead of a shameful thing to cover, he may have been more successful in life.
In finish, The Unseen Man is a book that failed to truly record my attention and certainly didn't stand out compared to other books that I've read. However, it does contain a unique story story as well as designs and morals that may be learned from if one will take the time to study and apply these to everyday living.
