Wow! I absolutely loved this book. I know Wells is most known for War of the Worlds, but The Island of Dr. Moreau was incredible. There were so many ideas to think about from science and philosophy to the realation to the world we live in today. This is a classicthat I will always remember. I wish I would have read it a long time ago. The development of the island and characters were great and memorable. I recommend to all.
