** spoiler alert ** Moore has a way of making a reader truly uncomfortable. He can take an awkward sexual situation set in the woods and make it almost unbearable (pardon the pun) by having it interrupted by the giant, cloths-wearing chimeras of Dr. Moreau. Talking animals that look like they stepped out of children's books and into your nightmares. Yikes. And how about the fact that the whole story started off on Mars and ended with England's first use of biological weapons. And then there's the unforgettable moment when an invisible man is brutally savaged, the extent of the gore not fully revealed until his death when the blood becomes visible. Only through Moore's twisted lens is this all possible, and for as weird as it gets, it's still a completely engrossing read.
