Timeless story with great narration

I listened to "The Most Dangerous Game" and liked the narrator so found "The Island of Dr. Moreau" read by the same narrator.

I read the book long ago. It is a great story read well...

Long time favorite

Would you listen to The Island of Dr. Moreau [Classic Tales Edition] again? Why?

I've read this many time but this is the first audio that does the story justice. Harrison's voice and tone are perfect for this book. A personal favorite, but not much action. Harrison tells the story the way I hear it in my mind when I read the text.

Which scene was your favorite?

The first chapter, the explanation of what is about to occur.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. This is a tale to be enjoyed in small segments.
