The Island of Dr. Moreau - H.G. Wells - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Island of Dr. Moreau:

The science that separates man from beast.

My favorite H.G. Wells quote from the book:

"I hope or I could not live."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

What makes us human?

Can science go too far?

My review of the book The Island of Dr. Moreau:

Very disturbing.

Very savage.

Very hard to put down.
