The Island of Dr. Moreau
The Island of Doctor Moreau is an 1896 science fiction novel written by H. G. Wells, addressing ideas of society and community, human nature and identity, religion, Darwinism, and eugenics.
When the novel was written in the late 19th century, England's scientific community was engulfed by debates on animal vivisection. Interest groups were even formed to tackle the issue: the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection was formed two years after the publication of the novel. The novel is presented as a discovered manuscript, introduced by the narrator's nephew; it then 'transcribes' the tale. (Summary from Wikipedia)

this was fairly well done, my only complaint would be that it's a a bit wearing listening to the several chapters that JemmaBlythe reads, her voice is too scratchy and she did some of the longer chapters

to be expected
It's a chilling read if you're an animal person, and still interesting if you're not. There are a few readers who were slightly more difficult to hear but I didn't have much trouble. the narrative doesn't require much as far as intonation or inflection so much of the readers could do pretty well without losing much of the tone
Not exactly what I expected though a good book. I don't think I would have purchased this but for free it was "Ok." HG Wells is an excellent author. For my tastes, I prefer something a little more active.
The Island of Dr. Moreau
Having a book read by more than one reader is somewhat annoying. Different voices, intonation, and accents do not make it very easy to follow. The woman's voice who read chapter 16 was nearly unintelligible and quite irritating.
the island of dr. moreau
the island was strange probably, the readers were very good in interpreting, the story was amazing and I want to make a book review of it . thank you very much for this great opportunity .
slightly repedative in middle but worth it towards the end. chapters 16 and 17 irritating narator voice. I prefer females to read female authored books or children's books. male written books with lead male characters to be read by male narrators only.
not as bloody as The War of the Worlds, and a little like The Time Machine.
This is not the best book for animal lovers(like me), but has an exceedingly interesting storyline. Okay readers, except for a couple chapters.
