The Island of Dr. Moreau, War of the Worlds
I love reading classics. These two books by H. G. Wells are science fiction from the 1890s. In The Island of Dr. Moreau, Dr. Moreau lives on a tiny Polynesian island and does surgery on animals trying to make them into humans with, as might be expected, rather horrible results. In the end, they kill Dr. Moreau, his assistant, and most of themselves.
