In Invisible man we meet our protagonist in an underground hideout, the novel opens with him stating that he isn’t really invisible, he’s not paid attention to and isn’t acknowledged. The book takes place in the pre-civil rights era, the narrator is a black man who tries to make it in a country where racial equality isn’t a thing yet. The book does its job of showing readers what it felt to be a black man back then and the problems they had to face just because their skin color was different. The protagonist has to overcome many adversities, which most people wouldn’t even endure. The roles of women were portrayed with the usual stereotype which was definitely a negative point for me, but it is an inspiring read! Rising above and standing up for what’s right is a great moral portrayed in the book.
