Review: The Island of Dr. Moreau

User Review  - Georgia Butler - Goodreads

I found this story too disturbing . . . the ideas (vivisection) . . . the imagery. In truth I more skimmed than read the book. I didn't anticipate the level of horror and I can't abide horror. Read full review

Review: The Island of Dr. Moreau

User Review  - Michelle - Goodreads

Great classic. HG Wells was the father of science fiction and this book a materpiece. A scientist living on a remote island and performing experiments to blur the characteristics of beasts, attempting to humanize them not only physically but mentally and emotionally. Read full review
