  • "H.G. Wells' terrifying classic tale of science run amok Edward Prendick is shipwrecked and finds himself stranded on an island in the Pacific. 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."
  • "Science fiction novel about a shipwrecked man who lands on an island inhabited by a mad scientist and creatures he has created."@en
  • "Exiled from England because of his gruesome experiments in vivisection, Moreau has taken up residence in a remote island paradise in order to continue his work. His goal: to create a new, superior race of beings! His legacy, however would prove to be a nightmare beyond comprehension."
  • "Synopsis: The author of The Time Machine and War of the World conjures up an island where a mad doctor experiments with turning animals into grotesque human-like creatures. The island is discovered by survivors of a South Pacific shipwreck. Read the prescient 1896 story as a social satire and as a foreshadow of science-to-come such as gene-splicing and bioengineering."
  • "Dr. Moreau, a scientist, finds an isolated island that gives him the freedom to create hideous creatures with manlike intelligence."
  • "Following a shipwreck a young naturalist finds himself on an island run by a mad scientist intent on creating a strain of Beast Men."
  • "Edward Prendick finds himself adrift at sea, a lone survivor of a ship wreck. He spends more than a week drifting without food or water. Pendrick consigns himself to death, but fate intervenes and delivers him to an unknown Island. The terrors that await him on Doctor Moreau's island are far worse than what he has just been rescued from or anything that he could have imagined."@en
  • "Roman de 1896 qui demeure un prototype de tous ces récits souvent macabres puisqu'ils touchent la médecine parallèle ou hérétique dans la lignée de Frankenstein sur le sujet toujours actuel des greffes. Un court cahier illustré sur les animaux mythologiques complète cette édition pour jeunes (?)."
  • "The Island of Doctor Moreau is an 1896 science fiction novel written by H. G. Wells, addressing ideas of society and community, human nature and identity, playing God and Darwinism. The mythic figure of the chimera, a human/animal hybrid, is brought into the scientific age. When the novel was written in the late 19th century, Britain's scientific community was engulfed by debates on animal vivisection. Interest groups were even formed to tackle the issue: the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection was formed two years after the publication of the novel. [adapted from http://en.wikipedi."@en

Prendick becomes interested in the mystery of Montgomery's life. Why does he live on an unknown Pacific island? Why is he taking animals there? And should Prendick fear the dark secrets of Montgomery's master - the even more mysterious Doctor Moreau?"--Page 4 of cover."@en

  • "Enormously inventive tale about a mad surgeon-turned-vivisectionist on a remote island who performs ghoulish experiments that transform animals into men. It is one of Wells's earliest and most sinister personifications of the scientific quest to control and manipulate the natural world, and, ultimately, human nature itself.-Amazon.com."@en
