The Island of Dr. Moreau is the story of Edward Prendick, an Englishman who finds himself shipwrecked on an island in the South Seas. On the island he discovers the mad Doctor Moreau and a group of beastly creatures that are the result of the Doctor's experiments. "The Island of Dr. Moreau", which was meant as a commentary on Darwin's theory of evolution, is a most uncanny prediction of the ethical issues raised by the science of genetic engineering in modern times and a cautionary tale of the potential dangers of science when left unchecked.
