Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous portrait of the duality of man and his capacity for evil, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, has become an integral part of the literature canon. In this disturbing tale of good and evil, the distinguished Dr. Jekyll creates a serum that can transform him into his remorseless, twisted alter ego Mr. Hyde. As Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll lives out his lustful, unsated vices that would, if discovered, lead to his public disgrace. Stevenson’s classic tale can be read as a critique of the frequent hypocrisy of Victorian society, full of repression and often-false virtue.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abbey | 1/21/2014

    " Really interesting, though the final chapter got a bit long-winded for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aian | 1/13/2014

    " If you like Victorian Lit then i recommend this book. I didn't like the story much but enough to keep me reading to the end. It's about man's struggle between good and evil. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maja | 1/9/2014

    " I'm a little on the fence about this book - on one hand I thought it had a great premice and a wonderful idea. On the other hand I just wish it would have been longer! Had it been longer, there would have been a greater mystery concerning the illustrious Mr. Hyde and we would have a better feeling of the evil of said person. I didn't really feel that Mr. Hyde was through and through evil, because I didn't really feel he was even a person. It was a little underdeveloped for my taste. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 nassim the last of the mehecans | 1/7/2014

    " I liked and did not like the novel. I liked the novel because it was exciting, well written and sometimes scary. I did not like the novel, because it had very difficult and old English words.It was really hard to keep the excitement while I was reading, because of those words and they made it hard to understand what was happening. There is also a lot of creative writing ,because of that he wrote like two pages for one character description, which made it sometimes very boring and hard to remember what they were doing at that moment. I recommend this book for those who have a good English vocabulary or those who want to improve theirs. If you like mysterious books full of secrets ,I really recommend you this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Taylor | 12/26/2013

    " I absolutely love this book! I had heard of it before, and, as everyone else I knew what the twist in the plot was. I thought it was beautifully written and I could barely put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/17/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Taylor | 11/3/2013

    " Jekyll and Hyde is is a fascinating look at the war between the good and evil selves within each of us. There is much food for theological thought in this beautifully written short story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron | 10/30/2013

    " A bit hard to understand, but if you stay focused, it's a great story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 4/30/2013

    " I loved this book, I was a little bit disappointed that it wasn't longer, but I suppose it's better to be left wanting more, than wearily trudging though a tediously long story :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nina.s | 3/10/2013

    " A lot of fantastic writing to analyse. Interesting story with so many different angles to interpret. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mientras Leo | 11/8/2012

    " La pena de este libro es que todos llegamos conociendo su historia "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kamas Kirian | 10/24/2012

    " A wonderful little novel, more like a novella really. It's classic SF at its best. It's well paced and an easy read. It's a little different than many of the Hollywood movies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shai Maa | 10/18/2012

    " was the first book for the author to read ..one of my friends gave it for me and really was more than awesome!..like an enternal dialogue ..he had written the thoughts of many others and appear them in a very beautiful story .. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexei | 8/25/2012

    " Not too bad for a quick read. It holds you in like a good detective story, and has some psychological implications/lessons if you are into the self-awareness stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andiek Kurniawan | 6/10/2012

    " Sebuah mahakarya Robert Louis Stevenson yang telah diterjemahkan ke berbagai bahasa dan diadaptasi ke lebih 40 judul film yang diproduksi di berbagai belahan dunia. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Veronica | 2/27/2012

    " I think I'm going to re-read it. It wasn't bad. But it definitely wasn't what I expected. I felt like the whole story could've been told in just the last chapter, as it was the most exciting to read. But that's just me. "

  • 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. "

    " 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 "
