Wells, “The Island of Dr. Moreau” is the narrative of a well-educated man that is rescued from a ship wreck and then placed on an island of fantastical beasts.

Naturalism, which was a characteristic of the time period, is also evident in the book. H. G. Well's use of Moreau as a God figure was brilliant, and Prendick's near acceptence into the Beast's society was suspenseful.
