  • "Science fiction about a shipwrecked man who lands on an island inhabited by a mad scientist and creatures he has created."@en
  • "Modern day practices such as gene-splicing and bioengineering are foretold in H.G. Well's haunting visionary fable. The book created a sensation when it first appeared in 1896, and Wells himself later deemed the work "an exercise in youthful blasphemy.""
  • "Dr. Moreau, a scientist expelled from his homeland for cruel experiments, finds a deserted island where he can create hideous creatures with manlike intelligence. But as the rigid order on Moreau's island dissolves, the consequences of his experiments emerge, and his creations revert to beasts more shocking than nature could devise."
  • ""Victims of a shipwreck in the Pacific discover an island ruled by an ominous scientist who performs ghastly genetic experiments which change animals into grotesque creatures with human intelligence.""@en
  • "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.From the Trade Paperback edition."@en

  • "This is a unique edition of Moreau. The text of the first (American) printed version (1896), with appended footnotes recording all variants up to 1924 and annotations of whatever strictly needs such, takes up little more than a third of its pages. Seven appendices provide the only available transcription of Wellss first draft, details of the emendations that he made before 1900 and reportedly intended to incorporate in a future edition of the book, accounts of six film versions and one stage adaptation of Moreau, critical synopses of Moreau's literary "children," etc. Preceding all this are almost 50pp. on Wells's life and thoughts, with particular reference to Moreau."
  • "This novel, one of [the author's] first forays into the science fiction genre, concerns a mad surgeon-turned-vivisectionist who, in his laboratory on a remote island, performs ghoulish experiments in an attempt to transform animals into men, with monstrous results. It is one of [his] earliest and most sinister personifications of the scientific quest to control and manipulate the natural world, and, ultimate, human nature itself. -Back cover."

Here he meets the sinister Dr. Moreau, a vivisectionist driven out of Britain in disgrace. Strange events soon cause Prendick to uncover the full horror of Dr Moreau's activities on the island. This science fiction classic mixes discussion on the divide between humans and the animal kingdom and chilling macabre horror in an unrivaled fashion. Its questions about how far science should go will ring as true today as they did when it was first published in 1896."
