Loved it. I did not have a real frame of reference having never read HG Well’s book, but I knew the jist.
Lots of twists and turns and disturbing family drama…and of course, the love interest(s).
The main character is Dr. Moreau’s daughter Juliet and she goes to the island determined to find out if her father is the madman they said he was.
How would you rate this book?
4 out of 5 and I would definetely recommend it to YA and adults. If you are squeamish, there are some vivid descriptions of the mutilations/operations the doctor commits but the twist at the end GOT ME!
If you like retellings of classics, one of the middle school librarians in NEISD sent this link: http://www.epicreads.com/blog/an-epic-chart-of-162-young-adult-retellings/
