Heart and Science: A Story of the Present Time


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.3 stars; 11 reviews)

Heart and Science is one of Wilkie Collins' didactic novels. It is the story of young doctor Ovid Vere, who fights for his love against all resistance of his family and their immediate circle of acquaintances. The novel features a large inheritance, a secret engagement, and an evil stepmother, but what makes the novel truly remarkable is that Wilkie Collins, who was always very fond of animals, speaks out in this volume against animal cruelty in the sciences. - Summary by Carolin (14 hr 32 min)

Interesting novel


(4 stars)

Lady from Salt Lake City should learn to put some feeling into reading. Mostly accurate but very flat!
