Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894) - Novelista, ensayista y poeta escocés, algunas de cuyas obras se han convertido en clásicos de la literatura. Nació el 13 de noviembre de 1850 en Edimburgo. Hijo de un ingeniero, estudió también esta profesión y, más tarde, leyes en la universidad de su ciudad natal. Desde su niñez, sin embargo, siempre había sentido una especial inclinación hacia la literatura. Así es como acabó dedicándose a las letras, y perfeccionando su estilo de tal modo que en pocos años se situó entre los escritores más destacados de su tiempo. Enfermo de tuberculosis, se vio obligado a viajar continuamente en busca de climas apropiados a su delicado estado de salud. Murió en las islas Samoa el 3 de diciembre de 1894 y fue enterrado en la cima de una montaña, cerca de Valima, su hogar samoano.

El extraño caso de Dr. Jekyll y Mr. Hyde - J. Utterson es un notario intrigado por un testamento que le ha entregado un amigo, el Dr. Jekyll, por el que hace heredero de todas sus posesiones a un tal Sr. Hyde. Por casualidad, Utterson se entera de que Hyde es un hombre de dudosa moralidad y desagradable aspecto, capaz de helar la sangre con una mirada. Empujado por la voluntad de ayudar a su amigo, el notario empieza a investigar la extraña relación que une al Dr. Jekyll con el oscuro Sr. Hyde. Esta novela es la obra cumbre de Stevenson, que narra una fascinante e intrigante historia que transcurre en un tenebroso Londres del s. XIX. Este relato de corte fantástico, explora con singular ingenio las dualidades bien-mal, manifiesto-oculto, consciente-inconsciente que definen y condicionan la compleja naturaleza del ser humano.

Listener Opinions

    " The Jekyll and Hyde story has been told and retold in many forms since it was written. When I came across this book in the free Kindle classics list, I was intrigued. Even though I knew the essence of the story, I had never actually read the original. I enjoyed this book very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 2/6/2014

    " It's always fun to go back and read the classics that I never read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jonine | 1/29/2014

    " A dark, foul piece of work that I did not enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashie | 1/26/2014

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 1/25/2014

    " Can't believe I didn't read this before, but great book, even with all the fantastical nonsense. Glad I read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha Ayers | 1/17/2014

    " Great classic! Fun to read and short but with interesting and fun language. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcelo | 6/24/2013

    " Excelente obra de Stevenson que nos plasma dualidad que siempre ha estado presente en el ser humano y la eterna lucha entre el bien y el mal a nivel personal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matan | 3/5/2013

    " A short novella -- an enjoyable story of morality and mystery that has been revised and retold in many forms since its original publication. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Metanira | 12/21/2012

    " Strange but always worth reading "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neil | 12/12/2012

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 3/4/2012

    " 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 Lori Hvizda ward | 2/27/2012

    " As with Dracula, I wish I could have come to this book as a virgin. These stories are so much a part of our literary fabric that the original somehow seems a little dull. I am reading Frankenstein next and am trying to keep an open mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drewkosztyo | 9/11/2011

    " I was inspired to finally read this novella after seeing the eponymous Broadway play. If you think you understand the story but haven't read the book... you don't! There's a wealth of subtlety and insight that's lost in the film and stage adaptations; think police procedural versus horror story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas McGuire | 7/27/2011

    " Quite alright. Rather on the short side, some nice language use though as classic horror creations go it's certainly no Frankenstein. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsea Gouin | 6/9/2011

    " I'm a huge fan of the musical, compared to this... the book is a disappointment. There just wasn't much of a story. it was just far too short! Could have been longer and expanded. I did like how you didn't hear from Jekyll until the last chapter though. "

  • 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. "
