Reviews

A sort of horror story


(4 stars)

The 4 stars is for the writer and subject matter. The reader is excellent. Maybe I should give 5 stars because it creeped me out like a horror story should. However, I am not a big fan of horror so not a full 5. A tale on the tragedy of the abuses humanity is capable of. Quite chilling.

superior


(5 stars)

Mr. Neufeld has, again, put to ease my despair at the speedy decline of readers who not only enjoy what they've read but enjoy what they read! Hot damn!

Horrifyingly Awesome


(5 stars)

What a great, if horrifying, tale! Entertaining, full of danger and adventure- and still very intelligent too. It gives you a little something to think about, particularly at the end... Prendick's conclusion and personal reflections are quite interesting. Also, what a great reader! Bob is excellent, I love the tone and pace of his reading...his voice reminds me a bit of James Mason.

Great Recording - Fearful Stoy


(5 stars)

Very good reading by Mr. Neufield. This is one of the few stories I have read or listened to in a long time that made me actually squirm in my chair as I listened to the story. A great listen and interesting look into the insanity that is the works of Dr. Moreau.

Interesting book!


(5 stars)

It reminded me a bit of frankenstein, expressing the horrors of the unnatural throughout the book, and was mysterious and we'll written. It was quite enjoyable, and the reader was great enough that I will be listening to more of his soon.

another masterly book by hg wells


(5 stars)

Another masterpiece of concept. His vision and ability to create a picture is so compelling. A work strange presentient and perhaps a warning in our current time of genetic manipulation and engineering.

classic


(5 stars)

Wonderful narrator reading an absolute classic!

Wonderful piece of writing and reading


(5 stars)

The reader fits perfectly into the atmosphere of a fantastic island, inhabited by beast people and half-wild men. The book is worth recommending, especially for those who desire an elegant composition of adventure and philosophy. Hope you will find it as enjoyable as I did.
