This novel is in large part a study on the moral boundaries of science: The arguably mad name character performs unscrupulous experiments throughout the book. As the distinctions between humans and animals are dangerously blurred, horrific realities in regards to violence and ruthlessness unravel.

Welcome back to the Monthly Reviews series, where I chronologically list last month’s reads, along with a short reflexion and opinion regarding each book.
Here’s a wrap-up of the English books I read in October.
When H. G. Wells first published ‚The War of the Worlds‘ in 1897, his work could easily have been considered the ramblings of a mad man. From a contemporary perspective, however, one would rather characterize the author as a genius.
