When a brute of a man tramples an innocent girl, apparently out of spite, two bystanders catch the fellow and force him to pay reparations to the girl's family. The brute's name is Edward Hyde.

A respected lawyer, Utterson, hears this story and begins to unravel the seemingly manic behavior of his best friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and his connection with Hyde. Several months earlier, Utterson had drawn up an inexplicable will for the doctor, naming Hyde as his heir in the event that he disappears. Fearing his friend has been blackmailed into this arrangement, Utterson probes deeper into both Jekyll and his unlikely protégé. He is increasingly unnerved at each new revelation.

In a forerunner of psychological dramas to come, Stevenson uses Hyde to show that we are both repulsed by and attracted to the darker side of life, particularly when we can experience it in anonymity. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Gregory Rothbard | 2/16/2014

    " A short Novella that digs into the Psychology of the angelic man, made before the fall; and the dirty creatures, that lies in all humans. The psychology developed and explained here is great. If you are looking for a long read, this will not suffice. "

    " As a fan of the musical version I was let down with the original version. It is a dry read with second hand accounts and letters throught the whole piece. Much less internal musings of Dr. Jekyll and hardly any words from Mr. Hyde we are left to discover the events through the eyes of a skeptical Lawyer looking out for an old friend. Still a wonderful story, just perhapse not the best medium to view the story. "

    " This book is a fabulous illustration of the duality of human nature and the evil that "hides" within us all! "

    " A fun and short read. Not quite to my taste as such, as although explanation is given to the change in Jekyll/Hyde, it does border on the supernatural and that isn't something I'm particularly interested in. The writing itself is impeccable, and I enjoyed it for what it was. "
