    The Island of Doctor Moreau is part science-fiction and part horror. However, it is much more than that. The novel also raises questions about the ethical limits of scientific experiments, playing God, and the distinction between humans and animals. Shipwreck survivor, Edward Prendick is rescued and dropped off at a remote Pacific Island, where a disgraced British biologist has fled to continue his experimental work on human-animal hybrids.

    In the 1950s, a British scientist is lost at sea. Once rescued, he finds himself on a mysterious island populated with strange, half-human, half animal creatures who are ruled over by a mysterious scientist and his assistant. This new full-cast audio adaptation of H. G. Wells' classic tale of the consequences of science without morality vividly re-creates the claustrophobic feel of the novel while bringing the setting forward to the fear and anxiety of the Atomic Age.

He explains to Prendick that they are bound for an unnamed island where he works, together with the animals aboard the ship. When they arrive on the island, however, both the captain of the ship and Doctor Montgomery refuse to take Prendick with either of them, stranding him between the ship and the island.
