More thought-provoking that one would have expected.
Unlike the various horror films on this subject, the story is extremely thought-provoking and disturbing. Although written more than a century ago, it does have some resonances with today in the form of "Man playing at God" (e.g. with GM crops and the like) and the mistakes that can be made when science does something just because it CAN, without any moral or ethical concerns. A really good read and actually very sad.
