Description
							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.
Reviews

"Griffin brings the perfect sense of earnestness...It is a solid, compelling and thought-provoking reading of this timeless tale of science fiction." - Publishers Weekly

"[Griffin] lures listeners into the story by drawing out the tensest moments...he preserves the story's core themes about the morality of science and the nature of humanity. This is a quick listen but one that will make listeners mull over their own principles." - Booklist
