Publisher's Summary

This is an audio enhanced version - with music and sound effects - of a book long hailed as one of the great science fiction classics, H.G. Wells' The Island of Doctor Moreau. It tells the story of Edward Prendick, a shipwreck survivor who is brought to an uncharted island where he encounters Doctor Moreau, a mad scientist bent on experimenting with human/animal hybrids.

Described by Wells himself as "an exercise in youthful blasphemy," this story is a disturbing and fascinating look into the moral responsibility of scientific experimentation, the ethics of meddling with the natural world and, ultimately, what it means to be human.

Another Great Classic Narrated by Kevin Theis!

Usually I start my reviews talking about the book, but Kevin Theis did another amazing job on this H.G. Wells story. The sound effects are perfectly used and not overdone. He adds such a theatrical element to the story telling. The emotions that I was supposed to feel were greatly heightened with his performance. If you are looking through the several H.G. Wells books and trying to find a good narrator look no further.

The Island of Doctor Moreau was a great listen. I don't think I enjoyed it as much as The Time Machine, but it is a very, very close second (and can see myself listening again in the future.) I was creeped out, surprised, and driven to want to find out the ending. I can see where several books and movies today have probably drawn inspiration from this unique Victorian story. I do not think I have read another Victorian novel close to it. If you enjoy Victorian novels and want to try something new, this is a great place to start.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request, and I have voluntarily left this review.

Creepy

The story is already compelling. The narrator adds character and emotion. You’ll feel the terror and isolation.

An Excellent Rendition of a Horror Classic

The narrator, Kevin Theis, gives a great performance in this rendition of a classic horror story. Through Kevin Theis' performance Edward’s confusion, horror and resulting fear from his experience really come through making listening this audio book an exciting experience.

I was given this book by the narrator, author or publisher free for an honest review.

Great

A classic, but one I had never had the opportunity to read.

The story was interesting, but the ambience provided by the sound effects and music really made it come alive.

The narrator had the perfect voice for a classic

I was offered this book in exchange for an honest review
