The Album of Dr Moreau

I’m a sucker for retellings and also for The Island of Dr Moreau, so I was expecting to love this book. After all, a murder mystery where the five main subjects are all members of a boyband and, oh yeah, also refugees from the Island of Dr Moreau? This was bound to be a good time. What I wasn’t expecting was the heart of the story, which explores the greed and exploitation of human nature, as well as what it means to be human at all. This book is filled with metafiction, witty characters that really do make you understand why tweens would wallpaper their rooms with posters of them, and a frame narrative that gives the whole story a sense of humor and tenderness. Strap yourself in, because this book is a roller coaster and you won’t want to miss out. -Katherine
