Abstract:

While "The Island of Doctor Moreau" has not achieved the popularity of some of H.G. Wells' other science fiction stories, those who have read it often describe it as one of the his greatest works. Experience a tale with themes as relevant today as they were in the Victorian Era. The narration of the story, which is conducted by the stranded scientist Edward Prendick, will keep you at the edge of your seat, enthralled, disgusted and curious at the same time. What kind of experiments is the infamous Doctor Moreau conducting in the seclusion of his personal island? Who are the beast-like people Prendick encounters in the jungle of the island? Evolution, devolution, animal cruelty and the state of the human mind are themes Wells flawlessly interweaves into "The Island of Doctor Moreau."
