Book of the Week: The Daughter of Doctor Moreau.

This is a pre-order special; I liked Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s MEXICAN GOTHIC a good deal, and I’m looking forward to The Daughter of Doctor Moreau. It looks like a fun 19th century gothic exercise involving passion and monsters, and I’m there for that sort of thing. Lord knows it can’t be more preachy than the original, either. H.G. Wells was never one to let story get in the way of a good, solid polemic…

  1. But will it be the same sort of polemic that H G Wells would have given? The modern world has a penchant for self absorbed naval gazing polemics.

    1. Wait, this is a book, not a movie. Yeah, I’ll trust a book by an author you enjoy not go be polemical about the evils of “the patriarchy” (or at least not stupid about such)
