The Island of Doctor Moreau

Weitere Formate

'That black figure, with its eyes of fire, struck down through all my adult thoughts and feelings, and for a moment the forgotten horrors of childhood came back to my mind' Adrift in a dinghy, Edward Prendick, the single survivor from the good ship Lady Vain, is rescued by a vessel carrying a profoundly unusual cargo - a menagerie of savage animals. Tended to recovery by their keeper Montgomery, who gives him dark medicine that tastes of blood, Prendick soon finds himself stranded upon an uncharted island in the Pacific with his rescuer and the beasts. Here, he meets Montgomery's master, the sinister Dr. Moreau - a brilliant scientist whose notorious experiments in vivisection have caused him to abandon the civilised world. It soon becomes clear he has been developing these experiments - with truly horrific results. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War. The Penguin English Library Edition of The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells

Sein Gesamtwerk umfaßt etwa hundert Bände. Zu Weltruhm gelangte er mit seinen Romanen und Erzählungen, die ihn als Begründer der modernen Science Fiction, als genialen phantastischen Utopisten und als kritisch-humorvollen Gesellschaftssatiriker ausweisen.
