Publisher's Summary

Narrowly missing death at sea, Pendrick finds a risky sanctuary on a remote island as an invited guest of Dr. Moreau. Pendrick is unaware of the evil that lurks behind the scenes. Dr. Moreau is in the midst of scientific experiments he feels will benefit all mankind. Whether his ambitions are worthy, or mad, is yet to be proven. He has succeeded only in achieving the grotesque. When Pendrick finally discovers the extent of Moreau's ghastly experiments, he is horrified at what he sees. Then he knows, he must escape the island at any cost...

Search for significance

This was an amazing early science fiction work (the science of biology and anatomy) and a good narration, marred only by a few studio noises. Having read a little bit about the author and his worldview, this story reflects upon his unsuccessful search for significance in this life and the life to come.
