Short contents:
Prendick, a naturalist, is shipwrecked on the island retreat of notorious vivisector, Dr Moreau. In a laboratory called the House of Pain, Moreau manufactures 'humanised' animals known as the Beast People, whom he controls through fear - until the terrifying day when one of his degraded victims turns against him.

Leaving a space to write down my comment on this book. I have found an audio version, so this paper book will start its journey very soon.

An okay book, but not very interesting. At times I even thought it boring, predictable. Maybe when you look at it from the perspective of the times it was written in, that it deserves a place at the 1001-list, but for me, this is a book to cross off. Not very suspenseful at all, let alone horrific.
