    "This audiobook really draws you in"

    I was very impressed with B J Harrison's narration. He is very good when it comes to creation the voices of the "creatures" . It raises a great many ethical and theological issues. HG Wells was a genius. Such sublime writing. Very exciting. At times it was also quite scary. Dystopia at its best!

    "Timeless story with great narration"

    I listened to "The Most Dangerous Game" and liked the narrator so found "The Island of Dr. Moreau" read by the same narrator.

    I read the book long ago. It is a great story read well...

    Story
    "Long time favorite"
    Would you listen to The Island of Dr. Moreau [Classic Tales Edition] again? Why?

    I've read this many time but this is the first audio that does the story justice. Harrison's voice and tone are perfect for this book. A personal favorite, but not much action. Harrison tells the story the way I hear it in my mind when I read the text.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first chapter, the explanation of what is about to occur.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. This is a tale to be enjoyed in small segments.
