These are the best of times for book lovers. We’ve seen a recurring pattern of books turning into TV shows, especially through Hulu. The days of strictly pop shows and witty comedies are over because the adaptations are sprouting like roses.
Over the past year or so Hulu has released (or almost released) adaptations for Stephen King’s 11.22.63 and Castle Rock, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, and now they’re unveiling it’s newest addition. Drumroll anyone?

Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man is becoming a series and we are thrilled to see this novel approach our screens.
The novel, first published in 1952, revolves around a young African-American man, whose name we don’t even know, and who feels he’s invisible due to the color of his skin and society’s limited views. We follow his life and the challenges he must face to get ahead as well as to find his identity. I had to read it for an honors class and, although I didn’t get to finish it, it will hook you from the first page.
Keep an eye out for the details of who’s to star in it and when it’ll be released. There’s not much info right now, but we’re still ready. Maybe now I’ll pick it up again, even if I don’t get credit for it.
