Abstract:

H.G. Wells' terrifying classic tale of science run amok Edward Prendick is shipwrecked and finds himself stranded on an island in the Pacific. Here he meets the sinister Dr. Moreau, a vivisectionist driven out of Britain in disgrace. Strange events soon cause Prendick to uncover the full horror of Dr Moreau's activities on the island. This science fiction classic mixes discussion on the divide between humans and the animal kingdom and chilling macabre horror in an unrivaled fashion. Its questions about how far science should go will ring as true today as they did when it was first published in 1896.
