Publisher's Summary

Wells weaves a story of scientific excess into a high-speed thriller. Montgomery, a brilliant but twisted biologist, is delivering exotic animals to his private island when he rescues a shipwrecked man. An act of compassion, or another addition to his collection?

Good Fantasy Read.

Everyone should be familiar with this book. It's been around awhile. It's still worth reading. Pretty entertaining.

Audio levels need to be balanced

Enjoyed the story and the narration but the audio levels were either too high or too low which required the volume to be turned up and down all the time which proved distracting.

Classic of Science Fiction that's treated lovingly

I haven't listened to any other adaptations of this book, but I highly recommend this one by Jonathan Kent. I just love the way he says "Silly Ass"! His narration also really made the beast men come alive for me. The book itself is the wonderful book from H. G. Wells and it's amazing. Thanks for this production!

Poor narration

The narrator is ill suited to this book. He seems a bit unemotional and smug.
