H.G. Wells- the man was ahead of his time. In 1896 Wells wrote this terrifying and riveting story. It is a compulsively readable classic science fiction story that poses the question 'what makes us human? what makes us inhuman?' The hero himself struggles with these questions as he struggles for his life, sanity and humanity on Moreau's island, populated only by the mad Moreau, his assistant and the half-human beast people.
Excellent book. A classic.
So so so so much better then that ridiculous excuse for a movie that stared Val Kilmer.
Classic H.G. Wells, if you haven't read this book do so now!
Not one of my favorites. Actually made me NOT want to see the movie.
Spine-tingling and terrifying! Don't let that Brando movie version waste your time - this book is much more scary and thrilling.
This is one of my all time favorite stories. It was reading this story that got me into biology and science as a youth. Splicing human and animal DNA seemed to be a good goal to a 12 year old. Of course that didn't happen and I went on to study art instead of biology, but this is still one of my favorite books
If you like H.G,Wells and the first writings in the science fiction genre, you will like THE ISLAND OF DR MOREAU.
