About the Book

English author H. G. Wells published his science fiction book The Island of Doctor Moreau in 1896. (1866–1946). Edward Prendick, a guy who became trapped and was saved by a passing boat, tells the story of the book. On the island where Dr. Moreau resides, he is left behind. The mad scientist Dr. Moreau vivisect animals to create hybrid creatures that resemble humans. Numerous themes are covered in the book, such as suffering and cruelty, moral accountability, human identity, interference with nature by humans, and the impact of trauma. According to Wells, it was "an exercise in youthful blasphemy." One of Wells's best-known works, The Island of Doctor Moreau, is a classic example of early science fiction. The book is considered to be the first example of the science fiction concept known as "uplift," in which a more intelligent race interferes with an animal species' evolution to raise it to a higher degree of intelligence. It has frequently been transformed into a film and other forms of media. Englishman Edward Prendick, a graduate in science, is able to survive a shipwreck in the southern Pacific Ocean. He is taken onboard the Ipecacuanha, a passing ship, where Montgomery revives him.

About Author

H.G. Wells

Herbert George Wells was an English author who lived from 21 September 1866 to 13 August 1946. He was a prolific writer across various genres who produced dozens of short stories and more than fifty books. Along with works of social commentary, his nonfiction output included essays on politics, history, popular science, satire, biography, and autobiography. Wells has been dubbed the "father of science fiction" and is now primarily known for his science fiction books. He had fallen in love with one of his students, Amy Catherine Robbins (1872–1927), with whom he relocated to Working, Surrey, in May 1895, and the couple decided to split up in 1894. His early writings, dubbed "scientific romances," included The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, The Invisible Man, The War of the Worlds, When the Sleeper Wakes, and The First Men in the Moon, among other works, and established several ideas that are now considered classics in science fiction. In addition, he produced acclaimed realistic novels like Kipps and Tono-Bungay, which was a satire of Edwardian English culture. At the age of 79, Wells passed away at his London house on 13 Hanover Terrace, which had a view of Regent's Park, for undetermined reasons.
