Summary, etc.: Englishman Edward Prendick finds himself shipwrecked on the open ocean. When a passing ship takes him aboard and revives him, things are starting to look less gloomy for the young scientist. Yet little does he know things about to get much worse. He is taken to an abandoned island occupied only by Dr. Moreau, a disgraced English scientist for his unethical treatment of live creatures. Prendick finds that the Doctor has been up to old habits, using the island's animals to create animal-human hybrids. Prendick must learn to survive among these creatures, while uncovering even more deadly mysteries about Doctor and the strange inhabitants of the island in this classic sci-fi tale.
