The Island of Doctor Moreau

(1 customer review)


This is a SoundCraft Audiobooks production-  enhanced with music and sound effects – of a book long hailed as one of the great science fiction classics, H.G. Wells’ The Island of Doctor Moreau. It tells the story of Edward Prendick, a shipwreck survivor who is brought to an uncharted island where he encounters Doctor Moreau, a mad scientist bent on experimenting with human/animal hybrids.

Described by Wells himself as “an exercise in youthful blasphemy,” this story is a disturbing and fascinating look into the moral responsibility of scientific experimentation, the ethics of meddling with the natural world and, ultimately, what it means to be human.

    A classic story, well written and narrated. The original “chimera” story? Probably not, but it stands as a good work of fiction.
