Listener Opinions

    " Not a book I would generally read. It was on the new "playaway" kind of like an ipod at the library. Such a convenient way to listen. It was interesting and believable for the most part. I haven't read Jeckel & Hyde, but the author added to the story to create her own. "

    " Great book, never read anything like it, i loved the concept of it, the idea. i would recommend this book to anyone! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 1/28/2014

    " This YA novel was a very clever spinoff that wasn't afraid to intermingle the wanders of fantasy with the harshness of reality. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 1/17/2014

    " Jekel Loves Hyde started out promising, but soon proved itself to be a cliched, unbelievable farce. It reminded me of Twilight in the worst way (Twilight has SOME redeeming moments, while JLH has next to none). After about halfway through, the only reason I kept reading was to laugh hysterically at the ridiculousness of it all. I haven't read this author's other book, although I hear it's a lot better. For the author's sake, I hope it is. "

    " Very intense, I couldn't put it down. Be warned it is very dark, and not appropriate for younger teens IMO. "

    " Really interesting story and very different i really liked it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy | 1/5/2014

    " This was an interesting book with a cool take on Jekyll and Hyde but it was risque and dark. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 12/27/2013

    " Hm, there were a few flaws in this book, but it was an overall enjoyable read. I'd probably rate it at a 3.5. I'm interested to see what Beth Fantaskey comes up with next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindor16 | 12/25/2013

    " Great book and twist on the original. Well, drawn out with tie-ins to the original storyline. Good teen book that is not about vampires. Has a nice twist to it. I love that the two teens are chemistry geniuses and work at remaking the formulas that caused the original changes. "

    " I really like this book, it was quick and sucked me in. I really like books where the main character has some sort of primal, evil thing inside of them that they have to battle in order to be free and I think that what I enjoyed most about this book, that and I'm such a sucker for a bad boy. "

    Overall, it kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat. :)
    ...I finished it within a few hours... >_>;;;; "

    " A good interpretation of Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It went to some dark places which I haven't been to lately in my YA reading. It was really refreshing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sheralyn | 4/27/2011

    " Strong language, near rape, too much sexual energy, and way too much good girl breaking moral rules makes this book a waste of time. I am sorry I read as much as I did. The library's copy had a slightly different synopsis and cover that made me think this story would be tamer. "
