The Last Kind Words

The Island of Dr. Moreau - H.G. Wells Edward Prendick is stranded on an island with a mad scientist/vivisectionist , Dr. Moreau, and his assistant Montgomery who are performing horrendous and terrible experiments that lead to beast-like creatures that talk and behave like men with their own version of The Law to live by.

As the days go by, Prendick sees horrifying things that he will never be able to forget.

More horror than sci-fi and still interesting subject matter particularly with cloning and organ "growing".

The darkest of Wells books i've read but The Island of Dr. Moreau remains a book which still has relevance today.
