Description
When Edward Prendick is shipwrecked on a mysterious island in the South Pacific, he meets the infamous Dr. Moreau, a physiologist who was forced to leave England because of his repulsive experiments on animals. On the island, screams echo from the laboratory in the middle of the night, and strange beasts prowl the jungle. Prendick discovers that the doctor is still performing horrific experiments, trying to turn animals into human beings. Terrified, Prendick wants to escape but soon finds himself seeking justice for the half-human subjects of Dr. Moreau's experiments. These experiences force Prendick to consider the relationship between science and ethics. First published in 1896, this is an unabridged version of English author H. G. Wells's iconic science fiction novel.
