Edward Prendick is rescued from a damaged ship and brought to a small island where an infamous doctor performs a series of experiments on animals. Once exposed, Prendick becomes disturbed by his cruel and unethical methods.
When Edward Prendick arrives on a mysterious island, he's introduced to its leader, the elusive Dr. Moreau. He's a disgraced vivisectionist who was forced to flee after his experiments were exposed. On the island he's created a human-animal-hybrid race called Beast Folk. As Prendick encounters these creatures, he begins to fear for his life. He attempts to escape the horrors of the land but is haunted by its ugly truth.
Initially, The Island of Doctor Moreau, was met with controversy due to its twisted take on evolution. Wells' unflinching detail paints an unforgettable picture in the reader's mind. It's one of his most popular and adapted works, including three feature films from 1933, 1977 and 1996.
With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Island of Doctor Moreau is both modern and readable.
