When a guy talks about being invisible, I mostly think he’s being dramatic. In this case though, and surprisingly enough, J.T. is unfortunately NOT being dramatic when he’s saying that he’s invisible because he is legit a science experiment. Like… he is legit invisible to the human eye and I don’t know how that happened – well I do but I’m not telling you – and that just does not sound like a good thing right now.
So we have J.T. that is invisible and is a science experiment, trying to impress his scientist Rosy Peabody, especially since she would need to figure out how to make him visible again. There also seems to be some sort of attraction between them when touching happens. A literal spark, if you will. And the attraction between them was one that was enjoyable to read throughout the entire novel.
I think the relationship between J.T. and Rosy was interesting since there was clearly a power dynamic at hand here. In this case, Rosy had more power than J.T. since she is the one in charge of the experiment. She is the one that made him invisible, and she is the one that can make him visible again. Without her, J.T. won’t be able to return to normal, and that is a kind of power that is worth mentioning in this novel. It is worth noting as well that in a lot of cases, it is usually the men that has the power over the woman for whatever reason, and I like this change of pace. I also like that Rosy was the scientist and the educated one as opposed to J.T. and she was the one that was in charge of the experiments and the scientific methods in figuring out how to solve this mystery of turning J.T. back to being normal.
Archer did a great job with keeping me entertained from beginning to end, and I look forward to reading other novels from her in the future.
