The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde was an immediate success and is one of Stevenson's best-selling works. Within a year of its publication, stage adaptations began in Boston and London, and soon moved all across England and then towards his home in Scotland. The novella has gone on to inspire scores of major film and stage performances.

The work is commonly associated with the rare mental condition often spuriously called split personality, where within the same body there exists more than one distinct personality. In this case, there are two personalities within Dr. Jekyll, one apparently good and the other evil, with completely opposite levels of morality.

The novella's impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the very phrase Jekyll and Hyde coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next.

    " I read this during my Gothic Blitz. Very good. As usual, much better than movies, or the summary of the plot as shared verbally. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Johanna | 11/3/2013

    " Strange and depressing but ultimately an exposure of our sin nature. "

    " At less than 100 pages, this can be read in one sitting. Great classic, suspensefully spooky story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph Grinton | 9/10/2013

    " This is a writer I admire enormously. His stories are full of surprises. He can be intellectually quite challenging, but what an imagination! I love the way he plays with the form of the short story. He is not self-indulgent with it. He always respects the reader, which means he never disappoints. "

    " Finally read this classic. It was good but I struggled with the language. Couple of other stories added in that were hit or miss. "

    " Always knew the story, but WOW, I LOVE THIS. So creepy and creepily realistic. Good v. evil, instinct v. correct societal reactions--so deep in such a short amount of pages. "
