Penguin Classics presents Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, adapted for listening and available as a digital audiobook as part of the Penguin English Library series. Read by the actor Richard E. Grant.

All human beings, as we meet them, are commingled out of good and evil: and Edward Hyde, alone in the ranks of mankind, was pure evil. Published as a shilling shocker, Robert Louis Stevenson's dark psychological fantasy gave birth to the idea of the split personality. The story of respectable Dr Jekyll's strange association with a damnable young man Edward Hyde; the hunt through fog-bound London for a killer; and the final revelation of Hyde's true identity is a chilling exploration of humanity's basest capacity for evil.

Part of a series of vintage recordings taken from the Penguin Archives. Affordable, collectable, quality productions - perfect for on-the-go listening.

    " A superb novel, stunningly original "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryamk514 | 2/17/2014

    " I had so much fun reading this book, because it was so interesting. This story is mysterious it makes you think twice and makes you want to continue reading nonstop just to figure out what is going to happen in the end! This story is mysterious and crime, and one of my favorite classic stories. I recommend whoever haven't read this book to read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Niamh Meagher | 2/16/2014

    " I thought this book was really good. It was mysterious and exciting. I thought we found out about Dr. Jekyll too early. I really liked it though. Niamh aged 12 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elly | 2/7/2014

    " This book is good. It's really short so it's more of a novella, and is thus a really fast read. I like the storyline a lot and the writing is very good. The reason I give it a three instead of something higher, is because I knew the answer to the mystery before I read it. I think most of us in our society have heard of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. As a person who hates having things spoiled (or just simply knowing the outcome of a book before I read it), I found it a bit dull and/or lacking. I think if you don't know the plot, however, this would be fascinating! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew O | 1/29/2014

    " Honestly I just couldn't get into it too much. Maybe because mysteries are just no fun when you know the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clint | 1/25/2014

    " A little disappointing, but a quick read. Thought there would be more to the story, but films over the years have added on to the original concept. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nichollette Acosta | 1/20/2014

    " This book was a great page turner. The concept of personality dualism is exemplified in a creative and thrilling way in this book. At the end of my version it had an extension call Heaven and Hell that was the cherry on top! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ruth | 1/15/2014

    " I probably would have enjoyed this more if I'd actually read it, rather than listening to an audiobook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Chan | 1/6/2014

    " it was ok, good, confusing, heavy. hahahaha. at least i know the main idea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 12/23/2013

    " 3.5. I liked it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ciaran Meagher | 12/23/2013

    " It would have been better if they had said Jekyll was Hyde at the end instead of doing the explanation. But it was still epic. Ciaran age 9. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alaa Mohammad | 12/1/2013

    " With every day, and from both sides of my intelligence, the moral and the intellectual, I thus drew steadily nearer to the truth, by whose partial discovery I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck: that man is not truly one, but truly two . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ray Melville | 11/30/2013

    " Excellent! Why have I not read this before? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashie | 11/16/2013

    " Same story.... with many many authors. :( !! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rania | 10/18/2013

    " quite an interesting book that shows that both good and evil are essential parts that co-exist in human beings and that it is the person who allows one of them to take control over the other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Matheson | 10/10/2013

    " Perhaps would have been better had I not already known the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul | 9/17/2013

    " Sadly underwhelming when you consider how iconic a book this is. It can be summed up pretty much entirely as "eccentric scientist takes own potion, locks into room and goes apeshit completely out of sight". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eduardo Felix | 8/10/2013

    " Un clasico interesante para sus tiempos.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefanie | 4/29/2013

    " Very unlike the versions we see in movies and on tv. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin Garcia | 4/6/2013

    " Didn't get into it so much. But then I was pretty young. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tasha | 12/26/2012

    " Very interesting. Makes you think about humanity. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison Pizel | 12/3/2012

    " It's hard to follow this type of writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Mcneill | 11/30/2012

    " This is a fun and short read. It was a good story purely for the narrative but it also raises issues about who we are and what it means to live a good life. So read, enjoy, and then ponder deeply your own similarity to Mr Hyde. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason S. | 11/22/2012

    " More novella than novel, the pervasive idea of the duality of people in society is spread throughout the book, but the text itself (much like the science described - or not described, as the case may be) is vague, light, and dated. "
