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.

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
