Publisher's Summary

Living in the 19th century and facing the impact of Darwin's theory of evolution, H.G. Wells wrote this haunting masterpiece, an evolutionary fantasy. The story's title character, Dr. Moreau, is a shipwrecked naturalist who becomes involved in an experiment to "humanize" animals by surgery. Dr. Moreau has been expelled from his homeland for performing cruel vivisection experiments.
On the isolated island, he finds the freedom to continue torturous transplantations and create hideous creatures with manlike intelligence. But as the cruelly enforced order on Moreau's island dissolves, the true consequences of his meddling emerge.

Great read, bad quality of recording...

I loved this book and the narrator wasn't bad either. But, you can hear someone else doing a recording of the same book in a separate room and it is very distracting. It's almost as if there's an echo. It drove me crazy.
