Dr Jekyll creates a potion whereby he can divide the good and evil parts of his personality and thus free the good side to work for the benefit of mankind without the distraction of his baser instincts. Unfortunately, he undertakes the experiment while the depraved side of his nature is in the ascendancy and turns into the repulsive Mr Hyde, whose very presence 'emanates with foulness and decay', and who bears the 'signature of Satan' on his face. Hyde eventually commits murder and begins to dominate the tortured Jekyll, inhabiting the Doctors' body more and more - and then Jekylls' supply of the drugs to make his potion and effect the transformation start to run out!

The idea for this horror story came to Stevenson in a nightmare. Part thriller, part mystery the novels construction was also notable, for the action is described by three of the protagonists. The terrifying tale was hailed as a literary landmark when it was first published in 1886.

    " Out of the classic horror stories I've read this was probably the worst. Not saying it's a bad book just wasn't as good as the rest. I did like however the difference between the Mr Hyde in the original book, a small man with an aura of evil, but not physicaly overpowering and the modern takes on him as a giant powerful beast. Also the moral story behind it was quite an interesting thought. "

    " I really liked the first account we hear of Mr. Hyde, and I thought more of such accounts should have been presented, because it was kind of tough to figure out what Mr. Hyde could possibly be doing on his excursions. I wanted to hear of the sick, twisted deeds and of the methods he used to execute them. I wanted to know what secret desires lurked within Jekyll, and maybe in the process see which secret desires I too held. I also kinda wished I didn't know exactly what was up from the get go, due to the dang old saturation of this story into our popular culture. Due to its quaint length, it was a good book to carry around with me during the night and read in Moroccan Coffee Shops and in the aftermath of sucky parties. And maybe the message was relevant too.

    " I was familiar with the overal story before picking the book up but not the finer details. And as its a classic was surprised at how small a book it is. It was an interesting read, although not quite as horrific as I thought it would be seeing as some class it as a horror. I think if I had read this with out knowing the end it would have had far more impact. "
