Publisher's Summary

On an uncharted South Pacific island, the mad genius Doctor Moreau has found refuge. It’s here, away from London and the civilized world, that the scientist can conduct his experiments on animals without condemnation. When Edward Prendick, the sole survivor of a shipwreck, washes ashore, he bears witness to Moreau’s cruel research and its bloody, inevitable unraveling. 

In exploring the disquieting crossroads of scientific progress and ethical responsibility, Wells’s cautionary account about the perversion of natural order rattles audiences’ sensibilities to this day. 

Revised edition: Previously published as The Island of Doctor Moreau, this edition of The Island of Doctor Moreau (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Not How I Pictured It

But when ever is a classic book that one only has cursory knowledge of? Well done narration, and intriguing exploration of then-cutting edge science.

Just no

I get what it's going for but it's slow and the main character and his surrounding are uninteresting. Maybe it's just for a older crowd of readers I assume but even then.....
