The Daughter of Doctor Moreau

If you’re looking for a novel to read on holiday, you may want to try The Daughter of Doctor Moreau. Written by author Silvia Moreno-Garcia, this book blends science fiction, horror, and historical fiction into a thrilling tale.

The story follows the titular Carlota Moreau, the daughter of a renowned scientist, Dr. Moreau, who experiments on animals to create human hybrids.

Although it’s based on the classic novel, The Island of Doctor Moreau has been adapted by many writers. It’s often described as a dark parable in the tradition of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, contemplating the effects of misguided scientific progress on humanity. Others have described it as an adventure novel in the tradition of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, a satire in the style of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, and a gothic mystery similar to Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. However, you choose to read this book for your holiday, it will leave you wanting to read more.
