The Island of Dr. Moreau Chapter 4 Summary
At the Schooner's Rail
Land is spotted, and Montgomery believes it is his destination.
Dinner is a bit awkward, what with the Captain sleeping off his drink and the first mate equally peeved at Montgomery. Good times.
Afterward, Montgomery and Prendick talk on the quarter-deck. Montgomery asks Prendick about London.
Prendick wonders about Montgomery: what drove him from London? Why the animals? Why would an educated man live on an island in the Pacific? All good questions.
The two stay up until midnight talking. Bro crush imminent.
Prendick tries to thank Montgomery for saving him, but Montgomery brushes away the gratitude. He says it was chance that saved him, nothing more, nothing less. Bro crush waning.
Montgomery decides to tell Prendick his story, but Prendick tells him not to, claiming "[it's] all the same to [him]" (4.17). Bro crush totally back on.
Prendick spots Montgomery's mysterious companion leaning over the taffrail. When the mysterious man looks his way, Prendick notices the man's eyes shine with a pale green light, starkly inhuman.
In a flash, all of his childhood fears come back to him, but only for a moment. Then the mysterious man looks down and is just a man again. Creepy.
That night, Prendick sleeps fitfully as the hounds bark at the moonlight. Sounds spooky.
