I listened to "The Most Dangerous Game" and liked the narrator so found "The Island of Dr. Moreau" read by the same narrator.
I read the book long ago. It is a great story read well...
I've read this many time but this is the first audio that does the story justice. Harrison's voice and tone are perfect for this book. A personal favorite, but not much action. Harrison tells the story the way I hear it in my mind when I read the text.
The first chapter, the explanation of what is about to occur.
No. This is a tale to be enjoyed in small segments.
"This audiobook really draws you in"
I was very impressed with B J Harrison's narration. He is very good when it comes to creation the voices of the "creatures" . It raises a great many ethical and theological issues. HG Wells was a genius. Such sublime writing. Very exciting. At times it was also quite scary. Dystopia at its best!
