You are walking through the streets of London. It is getting dark and you want to get home quickly. You enter a narrow side-street. Everything is quiet, but as you pass the door of a large, windowless building, you hear a key turning in the lock. A man comes out and looks at you. You have never seen him before, but you realize immediately that he hates you. You are shocked to discover, also, that you hate him. Who is this man that everybody hates? And why is he coming out of the laboratory of the very respectable Dr Jekyll? An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Robert Louis Stevenson original by Rosemary Border.

Listener Opinions

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

    " Hmm. Glad to be able to cross another classic off my list. No strong opinions either way. Middle of the road. Hence, three stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick Benson | 1/26/2014

    " Excellent - almost defines 'rattling good yarn' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 1/22/2014

    " Popular, but not Stevensons's best by a stretch (see 'The Master of Ballantrae' for that!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brieanna | 12/19/2013

    " This book is very interesting. I'll admit it's hard to get past the first few pages but after that it's smooth sailing (as long as you really pay attention to what's going on). This is not a book I would recommend to someone who wants to have a quick read that requires no thought or effort because although it is a quick read, you have to put a lot in to get anything out of it. It is fairly difficult to understand and I found myself rereading passages occasionally, but it is so worth the effort. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 12/17/2013

    " A common theme of 19th century writers is that of the soul. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a perfect example. What happens when the good doctor tries to cure himself of his inherent, natural evil? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Smith | 12/14/2013

    " I had forgotten what an incredible read this was. I could not put it down once I'd started reding it again. I think I'm going to have to re-read a bunch of the classics to get the full punch of the story. I loved this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lia Butarbutar | 12/6/2013

    " akhirnyaaa ngebaca jg secara komplit cerita tentang Dr. Jekyll dan Mr. Hyde...walopun bkn dlm bhs aslinya...tp yg penting akhirnya punya & baca kisahnya!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia Elliott | 11/28/2013

    " Love, love, love this book!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kamas Kirian | 11/22/2013

    " A wonderful little novel, more like a novella really. It's classic SF at its best. It's well paced and an easy read. It's a little different than many of the Hollywood movies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 10/8/2013

    " I loved this book, I was a little bit disappointed that it wasn't longer, but I suppose it's better to be left wanting more, than wearily trudging though a tediously long story :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aubrey | 9/18/2013

    " Short and sweet. I imagine it would have been more gripping for someone who wasn't already familiar with the story through pop culture. But, it holds up pretty well and kept me interested once it got going. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 8/19/2013

    " I can't give this an objective review, since it was a required high school reading and the analysis we did on the book in class was terrible. It's a book everyone should read to understand literary references to the story, but I can't assure that you will enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kurara | 7/28/2013

    " Not so fun when you know the story, but cool in a different way. Its, like, the first scary story I've ever really read(so its going in my favorites b/c i actually enjoyed it). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yuthika | 1/31/2013

    " It ended too quickly.. left me longing for more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 5/1/2012

    " Different than expected as it was told from the perspective of his friend by still an excellent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luis Perez | 4/23/2012

    " A classic. No need to summarize, since the plot is well known and other reviews have so adeptly written at length about the themes of this engaging little novel. Glad I finally got around to reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 4/1/2012

    " An interesting story that deals with the duality of our selves and how indulging each side can affect those around us. There's more telling than showing in this tale, but it was good nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Icarus Akamatsu | 12/2/2011

    " Superb, should be on everyone's to read list! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shan | 11/12/2011

    " Re-read this for the summer reading committee -- they're thinking about making it an option for freshmen. I haven't read it since my early teens, but it's just as scary as it ever was! (And possibly more so now that I understand what all of the words mean.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashi | 9/10/2011

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jess | 8/21/2011

    " I understand that this was a groundbreaking book at the time, but its aesthetic and literary style does not really speak volumes to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielroffle | 5/22/2011

    " "Dr.Jekyll" is cool but really guys, "The Merry Men" is the real shit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 5/16/2011

    " Even without the suspense as to the outcome, the book was an entertaining read. And, it's a classic! I have seen the play before and next time I'll have the full story in mind to make it richer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 5/16/2011

    " Lovely writing. Intricate, elegant phrasing that is so far removed from the blunt way we communicate in the modern world. Also an intriguing investigation of the desire to indulge in vice without consequence. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daisyjess | 5/15/2011

    " Loved it. It drew me in from the first page and I couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/10/2011

    " I loved this book!! It was brilliantly thought through and had a good meaning in the end . It made me cry!! :') "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alan | 5/6/2011

    " The sotry is nothing like pop culture portrays. The monster is a small man, not a huge giant. I read it for the cultural experience. I wouldn't read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " Audio Book. Like all books that have become horror classics, the original is not scary or horrible. It is a much different story than Hollywood has made it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddy Kay :) | 5/2/2011

    " LOOOOOVEEDD it ;) like nothing I've ever read before! It was spectacular! lol "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dad | 4/29/2011

    " a great classic in psychology, murder, & suspense. "
