The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde ranks alongside Frankenstein, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Dracula as one of the top horror stories to emerge from the late 19th Century. Film and stage adaptations have never been able to fully relate the agony and conflict that permeates the mind of Dr Jekyll, but the audio version read by Ian Holm adds an extra spine-chilling dimension to the original text by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Listener Opinions

    " Amazing and full of suspence. Mr.Utterson plays a great role in the whole series and investions. And the shock about the reality of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde is OMG, and got almost a mini-heart attack like OMG is this really possibe? But over all a great series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Thompson | 2/16/2014

    " Good story and a quick read. I gave it four stars because it feels overly didactic toward the end. But overall, a very worthwhile read that raises some important questions about human nature in narrative form. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel Zahava | 2/10/2014

    " Complex and creepy, which is, I am sure, the purpose of it. I was never a fan of the genre, but felt it was well done for those who do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Faye | 2/1/2014

    " I needed something a bit dark to listen to in the car. This time of year when it is foggy and dreary I just want a story that matches the bleakness of the weather. This fit the bill! Great depth of character and great descriptions. I love how each character that comes in contact with Mr. Hyde just can't quite put their finger on it but they know that something is off; they feel the evil. I wonder what side of my nature would emerge it I took the potion? "

    " Well-written, great story - and short! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryamk514 | 1/24/2014

    " I had so much fun reading this book, because it was so interesting. This story is mysterious it makes you think twice and makes you want to continue reading nonstop just to figure out what is going to happen in the end! This story is mysterious and crime, and one of my favorite classic stories. I recommend whoever haven't read this book to read it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aubrey | 1/22/2014

    " Short and sweet. I imagine it would have been more gripping for someone who wasn't already familiar with the story through pop culture. But, it holds up pretty well and kept me interested once it got going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ragne | 1/15/2014

    " Loved it! But, it tended to over-explain things, so at parts (as Dr. Jekyll's story), it became a bit boring. Other than that, it's a great view on psychology, and the battle between good and evil. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Shilstone | 1/4/2014

    " Bob Stevenson created a story for eternity. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Taylor | 12/27/2013

    " I actually just read the Sparknotes because I'm not smart enough to understand anything that hasn't been written in the last 25 years. Don't tell Mrs. Garner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gokhan | 12/5/2013

    " "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" isn't a book concerning the fight between good and evil, but a book concerning why a man chooses to be good or evil; criticizing Victorian England. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maher | 11/22/2013

    " a great story read when i was 12 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia Elliott | 11/16/2013

    " Love, love, love this book!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 11/14/2013

    " I really liked this story. This story made the author famous. Written in 1886. Is a psychological look at ehe duality of human nature. Is a good one to read twice because it can be confusing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taylor Alcantar | 9/5/2013

    " The actual story is a bit different then the movies. That being said I got a little bored with the backwards detective story, since everyone knows the ending. IT was just not what I expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 S | 8/21/2013

    " Lapsed into difficult articulation here and there but nonetheless astounding. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita Hames | 8/1/2013

    " I like the correlation between Hyde's physical deformity and his depraved actions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard B | 11/4/2012

    " Great book that exposes the internal fights between different interests. The mind has more than one "self". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Metanira | 10/22/2012

    " Strange but always worth reading "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison Pizel | 7/16/2012

    " It's hard to follow this type of writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stefanie | 9/25/2011

    " Very unlike the versions we see in movies and on tv. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaime | 8/11/2011

    " Very quick book to read, extremely interesting story that flowed very well. Different than my previous conceptions of Jekyll/Hyde from popular media certainly. "

  • 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 "
