Fred Wagner thought his newfound ability would bring big opportunities, but some special powers aren’t as useful as they appear to be

Advertising copywriter Fred Wagner lives a mundane existence, dreaming of being a novelist but making scant progress on his first literary effort. His career has stalled and his personal life is falling to pieces, but everything seems poised to change when, one day, Fred realizes he can will himself in and out of visibility. A world of possibilities seems finally within reach—that is, until Fred learns that invisibility isn’t the panacea he hoped it would be.
 
Filled with humor and pathos, Being Invisible perceptively examines the life of a struggling writer and the power each of us has to change our own lives.

When a book's theme has been done before, I either expect it to be a brilliant version or a bomb. Well, this didn't exactly fit the expected. It had its brilliance and it had its ohmygodisitoveryet moments. The plot build was strong, that of a man who has always felt invisible who discovers he actually can be, finds that his invisibility is mostly in his head (the bad moments get him attention, and the women with their own issues want everything they can have to do with him).... but the ending was weak and took away from the strength of the rest of the writing.*Spoilers ahead*A man has decided he has nothing to live for, goes to commit suicide, and finally falls in love? Really? Weak and less than what I would have wanted from an ending. The ending made me roll my eyes, and therefore, I can't recommend this book. For the most part, it was a fun and compelling read, but the ending stripped all good from its ranking.read more
