Carlota Moreau: A young woman, growing up in a distant and luxuriant estate, safe from the conflict and strife of the Yucatan peninsula, the only daughter of a genius - or a madman.Montgomery Laughton: A melancholic overseer with a tragic past and a propensity for alcohol, an outcast who assists Dr Moreau with his scientific experiments, which are financed by the Lizaldes, owners of magnificent haciendas with plentiful coffers. The hybrids: The fruits of the Doctor's labour, destined to blindly obey their creator while they remain in the shadows, are a motley group of part-human, part-animal monstrosities. All of them are living in a perfectly balanced and static world which is jolted by the abrupt arrival of Eduardo Lizalde, the charming and careless son of Doctor Moreau's patron - who will, unwittingly, begin a dangerous chain-reaction.For Moreau keeps secrets, Carlota has questions, and in the sweltering heat of the jungle passions may ignite.… (más)

Silvia Moreno-Garcia specializes in stories of the occult set in Mexico. The Daughter of Doctor Moreau is set in nineteenth-century Yucatan, where biologist Doctor Moreau uses arcane methods to create animal-human hybrids. The story comes close to being a reboot of The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells, but Moreno-Garcia is not interested in vivisection or genetics. Her animal-human hybrids tell us more about social relationships than they do about biology. The story is built around alternating chapters focusing on the coming of age of Carlota, the daughter of the title, and Montgomery, Moreau’s foreman. Moreno-Garcia writes stylishly, but the architecture of the story seems cumbersome. The story has almost as many roots in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s "Rappaccini’s Daughter" as in its Wells progenitor. A tighter focus would help. It’s not bad, but it is my least favorite of this year’s crop of Hugo nominees. ( )

I love SMG, and as I work through her books I've come to expect a slow build with intricate world building and fascinating characters. That's exactly what we get here, with the first half feeling largely like a historical romance, with themes of pushing back against racism and patriarchy throughout. There are sci-fi/horror elements towards the end, and it's such a satisfying build up to the conclusion. ( )

I thought this was really interesting, a reframing of H.G. Wells in the context of the historical Maya resistance to Mexican rule in the Yucatan. There was a twist three quarters of the way through that I should have seen coming, but didn’t. ( )

This reworking of The Island of Dr Moreau resituates the story to the Yucatan, eliminates the castaway storyteller and adds an attractive intelligent if naive daughter and changes the science and still comes out as mostly dull and only livens up a bit toward the final 3rd with handfuls of action and sprinkles of sex. If the characters aren't bad, they aren't good enough to compel real interest either. ( )

The plot itself is very original and intriguing. I liked that at the end of the book, the author shortly outlined the political situation in Mexico at that time and explained that this book is loosely based on Wells' "The Island of Dr. Moreau".
But in spite of the interesting plot, I felt that something was missing. The characters and their relationships could have been more developed. I felt like I was only on the surface without being able to completely understand their feelings or reasons for their behaviours and actions, and therefore, I really couldn't care less. I hoped for some more drama and feelings.

All in all, it was okay. ( )

The Maya vocabulary . . . employs the word "peten" promiscuously for both island and peninsula. The cartographer nearest to the epoch of the conquest are therefore fairly excused for having represented Yucatán as an island torn off from the Mexican main.
