Overview

The Island of Dr Moreau is both an exciting adventure story, and H G Wells' prescient critique of the dangers of Science shorn of all emotion, of research driven only by a cold intellectual curiosity. Written over a hundred years ago, the book's themes are especially relevant today, when genetic manipulation of both plants and animals has turned the authors concerns from fantasy to disconcerting reality.
