I downloaded The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells from books.google.com a few days ago, and finished it very quickly. I enjoyed it a lot. This is my first time reading Wells, and I liked his writing style. I remember watching the movie at some point, but my memory served me wrong on the main plot-line. The moral of "jacking with stuff for the sake of progress usually bites you in the behind" is a big one with this novel. I hope you enjoy it.
