An Oldie but a Goodie
I have to admit, this book actually exceeded my expectations. The narrator did a great job setting the tone of the story's era and bringing the classic Victorian masterpiece to life. If you are a fan of the HP Lovecraft audio books, I think you will enjoy these as well.

Good narration, disturbing tale
This is one of HG Wells' more disturbing tales. I can't say I'm really in love with it, like I am with "War of the Worlds" or "The Invisible Man" (or some of his short stories like "The Truth about Pyecraft" or "In the Abyss"). Dr Moreau isn't a deliberate sadist, he just doesn't care; under his knife, animals not only suffer terrible physical agonies; they suffer a complete corruption and destruction of their essential nature. I found it more depressing even than the bleak vision of "The Time Machine."
That said, Simon Prebble does an excellent job with the narration.
