The first and greatest "mad scientist" story, from the father of science fiction.
Shipwreck survivor Edward Prendick is rescued and dropped off at a remote Pacific Island, where a disgraced British biologist has fled to continue his experimental work on human-animal hybrids. Prendick, at first terrified, later tries to subvert Moreau's domination of the "beast people" and plays a crucial part in the tragedy that unfolds.
The Island of Doctor Moreau is part science-fiction and part horror. However, it is much more than that. The novel also raises questions about the ethical limits of scientific experiments, playing God, and the distinction between humans and animals.
The Island of Dr Moreau has influenced many later stories and movies, mainly about mad scientists creating part-human, part-animal monsters. Now you can have this incomparable story read to you. This audio version is completely faithful to the H.G. Wells novel.

Background noises distracting
I would remove the background noises/music. They are too loud and not done well. I returned the book to get a different narration
Great story that should be listened to by all
