    [synopsis] => The Island of Doctor Moreau is a classic work of early science fiction and one of H. G. Wells' most visionary novels. It recounts the harrowing ordeal of Edward Prendick, an Englishman who survives a shipwreck in the southern Pacific Ocean. Rescued by a man named Montgomery, Prendick finds himself on an island belonging to Dr. Moreau, formerly an eminent physiologist in London who was expelled from his homeland for his cruel vivisection experiments.

	Prendick discovers that Moreau has been creating hideous hybrids of beasts and man in the name of science with an unnerving, sinister disregard for the anguish of his test subjects. Fearing for his life, Prendick flees into the jungle where he joins a colony of half-human/half-animal creatures while he undertakes efforts to escape. Meantime, the true consequences of Moreau's experiments emerge and Prendick is imperiled by forces he can barely comprehend, let alone control. This gruesome tale, as haunting as it is enduring, brilliantly anticipates questions that persist today-what limits, if any, should be imposed in the pursue of science and at what price? 

	This Warbler Classics edition includes an image gallery of animal species that feature in the story and a detailed biographical timeline.
