Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
This new edition of Wells' provocative tale of the corruption of science features an introduction by Alan Lightman, author of Einstein's Dreams. A shipwrecked English traveler is stranded on a remote Pacific island, lorded over by a notorious vivisectionist trying to prove that animals can be surgically turned into humans.

Review:
"The energetic and remarkably flexible imagination of the author of 'The Island of Dr. Moreau' has certainly put into form for public entertainment more horrible ideas than any other imagination now employed in supplying the market for imaginative wares. Mr. Wells's powers are not all confined to the horrible, of course. He has fancied and thought out many impossible things, which have been rather pleasing to read about. But it is in horrible ideas that he excels. 'The Island of Dr. Moreau,' for example, is full of strange power....[It is a] vividly wrought fantasy worthy of a legitimate successor in the field of story telling of Poe and his literary prototype, Hofman, of Gautier (in his fantastical moods) and Stevenson when he permitted his nightmares to control his pen."

New York Times, 07/16/1898
