Added DiffLines:

* HaveAGayOldTime: The original subtitle "''A Grotesque Romance''." "Romance" in this sense referred to the fact the story was going to be unrealistic. Wells, after all, was known for calling his science fiction work "scientific romances."

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: Griffins orders a ''crap ton'' of lab equipment to fill his room at the inn with, in a chapter appropriately titled "The Thousand and One Bottles."Bottles", wherein Griffin drives Mr. and Mrs. Hall nuts with how much chemistry equipment he sees fit to fill his room at their inn with. And apparently he had to get a lot of his stuff on the fly, since, aside from a rack of test tubes and a laboratory-grade scale, most of the stuff he's using is repurposed from more conventional household items including salad oil bottles.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: Griffin is a classic sociopath in that he doesn't give a damn about ''anyone'' but himself. Over the course of the book he commits multiple counts of theft, arson, and at least one murder (with several others attempted and one possible: he didn't bother to check if the man survived) and all the while the main theme of his conversation is about how unfair the world is to him.
