9780753820124: The Island Of Doctor Moreau

Prendick, a naturalist, is shipwrecked on the island retreat of notorious vivisector Dr Moreau. In a laboratory called the House of Pain, Moreau manufactures 'humanised' animals known as the Beast People, whom he controls through fear - until the terrifying day when one of his degraded victims destroys him. Prendick is then alone with the bloodthirsty survivors.

A sombre fantasy in which Wells issues a resonant warning against scientific obsession and the pursuit of evolutionary control.

Book Description:

H. G. Wells' classic about the nightmarish excesses of biological experimentation.

About the Author:

H G Wells was born in Bromley, Kent in 1866. After working as a draper's apprentice and pupil-teacher, he won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science in 1884, studying under T H Huxley. He was awarded a first-class honours degree in biology and resumed teaching but had to retire after a kick from an ill-natured pupil afflicted his kidneys. He worked in poverty in London as a crammer while experimenting in journalism and stories. It was with The Time Machine (1895) that he had his real breakthrough.
