Island of Dr.Moreau by H. G. Wells

Book Description

Written in 1896, "The Island of Dr. Moreau" is one of the earliest scientific romances. An instant sensation, it was meant as a commentary on Darwin s theory of evolution, which H. G. Wells stoutly believed. The story centers on the depraved Dr. Moreau, who conducts unspeakable animal experiments on a remote tropical island, with hideous, humanlike results. Edward Prendick, an English-man whose misfortunes bring him to the island, is witness to the Beast Folk s strange civilization and their eventual terrifying regression. While gene-splicing and bioengineering are common practices today, readers are still astounded at Wells s haunting vision and the ethical questions he raised a century before our time."
